TEA's annual Thea Awards Gala is an elegant, black-tie dinner event held in the spring in Los Angeles, following TEA's annual, 2-day industry Summit. Together, TEA's Summit & Thea Awards comprise the Association's most important weekend of events. They are also vital business networking gatherings.
