How long does the ceremony last, and is there an after-party?

The event will be hosted in person at SubSummit 2021 in Dallas, TX. The ceremony includes drinks, dinner, and access to the VIP afterparty.

No, they will not. We want maximum excitement at the Cube Awards!

Do I have to be there to win?

While companies and individuals do not have to be present to win, we highly encourage your attendance if you are nominated. There are hundreds of reasons you should attend SubSummit in general, and the honor of being nominated needn’t be the proverbial straw.

Is there a vegetarian or vegan meal option?

Absolutely! The meat-eaters will be jealous of your scrumptious dish. Just make sure you select “vegan” or “vegetarian” when during the checkout process when buying your SubSummit ticket(s).
