The numbers tell the story:
- There were 11 awards categories for public and private companies (see LR Names Leading Lights).
- Light Reading received more than 325 award nominations in total (see Leading Lights Awards Finalists).
- The finalists were selected by 15 editors and analysts from Light Reading's network of Websites and research products (see LR Reveals Leading Lights Winners).
- More than 121 bottles of wine were consumed during the hour-long wine tasting and the following dinner.
The stats are simply staggering. And, quite frankly, so were the attendees after drinking all that wine.
There was also a Light Reading first, as introduced by CEO Stephen Saunders. The Light Reading Corporate Video kicked off the evening's festivities and set the tone for a night of big time celebration with the industry's biggest names.
And, of course, we took a few photos, too.
