The evening began with cocktail service where attendees were invited to sip on a glass of wine and relax while meeting new friends, catching up with old ones and taking in the displays of the best of Austin's professional communicators. This year featured an open bar and an incredible buffet from 2Dine4 Catering.

Gala guests enjoyed exlusive front row seats to an unforgettable performance by World's Fastest Hamlet!—where Austin Shakespeare's fastest, finest actors performed an uproarious abridgement of Shakespeare's masterpiece. Immediately following this crowd-pleasing performance, our special guest speaker Robert Matney took the stage and delivered a highly entertaining and informative keynote, which gave insight into how today's modern communicators can incorporate lessons learned from Shakespeare—the original master communicator.

Finally, Robert Matney and IABC/Austin President John Harris helped recognize our Bronze Quill Award winners during an incredible ceremony that highlighted why Austin is such a communcations powerhouse. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make this year's event so extraordinary.
