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.

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.

So Phun, So Dance, So Party: Sophia's Bat Mitzvah

This past weekend, HELEN MILLS was home to Sophia's Bat Mitzvah - an fun, elegant, and dance-filled party that lasted well into Saturday night. The night kicked off with the ceremony that included readings, singing, and some very touching words of advice from the parents of the Mitzvah girl. A cocktail reception with blue-themed mocktails for the kids followed - complete with a photo booth and pop-a-shot booth.
