2020 Night of the Stars Awards Program

Honoring Outstanding Local Real Estate Projects and Companies

    About the Process

    NAIOP Washington State Chapter’s Night of the Stars Awards Program is an annual gala dedicated to recognizing exceptional individuals and companies in our industry and the projects in which our members are involved. The goal is to identify outstanding real estate developments and activities in a variety of market types and the individuals who conceived of, took risks, sponsored, supported and made the projects happen. We encourage anyone on the extended project team to nominate projects, developers and deals, and to engage the owner or sponsor and other team members in the process. The Night of the Stars Committee seeks to provide recognition for members of the entire project team and include them all in the annual celebration of the industry. 

    The Night of the Stars Awards Program is a two-step nomination process. From June 1 to July 27, NAIOPWA solicits project and firm nominations online. On August 12, finalists will be notified and receive their presentation date, time(s) and additional details. All finalists have the opportunity to make a presentation to a panel of judges on the mornings of September 10 and 11. Presentations for each project/category will be limited to approximately 5 minutes. Due to COVID-19, we will provide the location by Aug. 12, 2020 when finalists are notified.
