Welcome to the NACE Austin Chapter


The National Association for Catering and Events, NACE,  is the world's leading association of caterers, event professionals and special event services that provides resources to the special event industry.

Networking, education and business development are the legacies NACE has to offer members, their clients, and businesses.

We invite you to explore NACE and enhance your event world!


 We are proud to announce the 16th annual NACE Austin fundraiser, A Taste of NACE - A Bond Event, which will be held at Trinity Hall in downtown Austin, on July 28, 2016.  This year we are putting a unique twist on our nationally recognized and award-winning fundraiser, and you won’t want to miss it.  The event will present attendees with Austin’s top culinary talent, a silent auction via GalaBid (so you can outbid your friends from your phone on the dance floor), bold entertainment, and beats to get you out on the dance floor!


“NACE isn’t just about catering anymore, we’ve got event industry pioneers that will be shaking up this year’s fundraiser from eccentric dancers to a seamless live band/DJ combination, and even indoor pyrotechnics and special effects.”

 Proceeds benefit the Foundation of NACE to provide member scholarships to the organization’s National Educational and Leadership Conference, and our 2016 local charity partner, Keep Austin Fed.

In a world where margins are slimmer and expectations are greater than ever before, catering and event professionals must keep current on trends, produce creative ideas and continually build upon their network of innovate professionals to be successful and competitive. The National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) provides this network to advance the catering and events industry and its professionals.
