Case Study: 101 Awards
The nation’s most prestigious awards event dedicated exclusively to the National Football League, the 101 Awards each year honors the Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Coach of the Year in the AFC and NFC. This awards gala holds an impeccable reputation within NFL circles as the most prestigious honor for its players and coaches. The 101 Awards has seen the greatest names in football history walk its grand stage during the event’s more than 40-year history. In 2008, the event added the Lamar Hunt Award for Professional Football as a tribute to the late owner of the Kansas City Chiefs and founder of the American Football League. Premier has been a key leader in the development of this marquee event, managing nearly every facet of the 101 Awards for the past 20 years.
