The Big Night

Our Biggest Night of the Year - Back in 2021

The Building Industry Gala (BIG) is a culmination of our awards presentations into one BIG Night. This is where we come together to celebrate the industry and recognize the great work you do by presenting our Reggie, ROMA, Trillium, and other Housing First Minnesota award winners. You don't want to miss this amazing night! To view past recipients view the Awards Archive .

We all miss seeing each other and strengthening our connections. The BIG Night has been one of those very special moments each year at which we can celebrate our industry, connect, network and present our awards. But as COVID-19 continues, and surges occur across the country, it seems increasingly unlikely that we can bring 900 of our industry members together indoors. Safety must be our top priority. We need all of you to continue doing the great work you are doing that makes available the opportunity for homeownership for everyone, everywhere. 

The BIG Night needs to be a full-on celebration that brings all of us closer and regrettably, that seems impossible this year. And were we to modify our event for fewer people, it is not the event we have all come to love and anticipate. So we have made the decision to cancel the event and bring it back in ’21. We want to thank the members of the BIG Night Committee for their efforts and acknowledge the work they’ve done growing this event. 

We will still be presenting our very important Builder of the Year, Remodeler of the Year, Associate of the Year, Legislator of the Year, Housing Industry Leader of the Year, Reggies, ROMAS, Trilliums, Rising Star and more, and we’ll do so in an entertaining and polished video that we’ll share with our industry in October. And for those of you who win these awards, we’ll be providing marketing kits that you can use to spread the word. 

Thank you for your understanding in this unprecedented summer and fall. Keep doing the essential work that is so important to our home buyers, our industry and more broadly, to our state. We’ll be back at Mystic Lake next year with BIG Night 2021 ready to raise a glass to this great industry and to the people with which we are all so fortunate to work.
