ACCENT ON ARRANGEMENTS, INC., a DMC Network Company NOMINATED FOR PRESTIGOUS INTERNATIONAL AWARD

PRESS RELEASE

NEW ORLEANS, LA-  July 8, 2013 - Diane B. Lyons, CMP, DMCP and ACCENT on Arrangements, Inc, have been nominated for a prestigious International Special Events Society (ISES) "ISES Esprit Awards" in the category of Best Meeting/Conference Program Budget over $250,000.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by this prestigious international organization for our achievements of excellence in special events." says Diane Lyons, President of ACCENT on Arrangements. "ISES award winners are known throughout the industry as ‘the best of the best' so we are a honored to be in such company."

In her 30-year career as a special event professional, Lyons has earned her Certified Meeting Planner (CMP) and Destination Management Certified Professional (DMCP) designations, and has led one of the most respected destination management companies in the New Orleans area. In 2007, ACCENT on Arrangements was selected by the DMC Network as its exclusive New Orleans member company, and successfully completed the requirements for the ADME Charter Accredited Destination Company designation as one of its charter members. In 2010, ACCENT received the ISES Esprit Award in the category of Best Meeting/Conference Program over $250,000.

This year, ACCENT is nominated in the "Best Meeting/ Conference Program Budget over $250,000" category for  creating a program that would connect our client's senior managers (including the CEO and CFO) and "rising-star" employees of diverse cultural and professional backgrounds through a series of forums and teambuilding exercises, as well as networking and social events. It served as a unique opportunity for senior management to share their vision and deliver key corporate messages with participants who, in turn, were encouraged to share their views and positively contribute to the company. Because the company values the cultural and historical aspects of their program locale, they chose New Orleans as the host city. Throughout the program, participants were treated to offsite activities and outings with their fellow participants, but were also encouraged to explore the city and its local attractions on their own which proved to be an inspirational and motivational way to diversify the event.  With ACCENT's high-quality service and attention to detail, the guests left with a experience once-in-a-lifetime experience.

ISES award winners will be announced and recognized at the ISES Eventworld 2013 Conference in Paradise Island, Bahamas on August 24th.
