Live from the #DAMSummit

Canto's #DAMSummit at HELEN MILLS Event Space and Theater

For their NYC Data Asset Management (DAM) Summit in New York, Canto did a wonderful job mixing in what you expect at a conference: great speakers, content, and networking opportunities, with the unexpected: humor, moments of delight, and GIANT Connect Four & Jenga. The result - engaged attendees and a memorable day and night. Check out a few of the photos below for more details on what made the event so special.

Giant Connect Four with the brand's signature blue color was a big hit during the evening cocktail reception. Giant Jenga was also a hit at the reception and allowed for attendees to mingle over a little friendly competition.

Above: Canto's brand color served to accentuate the space without feeling overly branded. Details included the wall wash color, table linens, and of course signage placed throughout.

The event organizer's gave a nod to Mother's Day with some 'left-over' handmade artisan chocolates from the chocolatier Jaques Torres. They were a big hit among guests and an unexpected thank you for those who traveled on Mother's Day to attend the event.
