2020 REALTOR® Awards Gala Ticket Changes

Last year was the first time in recent history (perhaps ever?) the REALTOR® Awards Gala sold out. Our event is in held in the largest, suitable space in town, designed to hold as many people as possible. However, we heard from production award winners that it was difficult for to purchase tickets, with some saying that, perhaps, too many tickets were reserved for sponsors.

In response to member feedback, your board leadership and Gala Committee have made some changes to how tickets will be sold for our 2020 event. Since adding tables is not an option, we plan to make the most of the tables and tickets available, with a new pre-sale premium table option for brokers and updated sponsorship opportunities.

Pre-Sale Premium Table Options for Brokers

To give Designated REALTORS®, managing brokers, and potentially team leaders, a chance to secure seats for their production award winners before general ticket sales begin, there will a limited number of premium tables available for pre-purchase. Here are the details:

  • There will be 40 premium tables available for purchase. Each table seats 10 people. (Seats cannot be added to any table.)
  • Cost is $900 per table and a minimum of one (1) to a maximum of four (4) tables may be purchased during this pre-sale period.
  • They will be the best seats in the house, centered and as close to the stage as possible, unless requested otherwise.
  • Premium tables will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. We will do our best to accommodate all requests but cannot guarantee each will be fulfilled.
  • BRR will notify brokers of their table(s) and an invoice will be added to their account which must to be paid in full by Friday, January 31, 2020 at 5:00 p.m., otherwise, unpaid tables will be released for general ticket sales — no exceptions.
  • No individual ticket sales will be allowed during this pre-sale period.
  • We cannot guarantee that any additional tickets or tables purchased during the general sales period will be nearby these premium tables.

Key dates and communications:

  • Monday, January 20, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. ― Designated REALTORS® and/or managing brokers will be sent an email invite with a link to request 1-4 premium tables.
  • Monday, January 27, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. if pre-sale tables remain ― Team leaders will be sent an email through which they can request 1-4 premium tables.

To be sure you receive gala-related emails, you need to be:

  • An active member of Boise Regional REALTORS®;
  • Listed in BRR’s membership database as a Designated REALTOR®, Managing Broker, or team leader, or, were noted as the team leader on a past team production award to receive the pre-sale invitations; and,

(Please try to resolve potential issues prior to Monday, January 20, 2020 in order to receive the invite. If you have any questions, please contact cassie@boirealtors.com.)
