Saturday, June 20, 2015 – The ladies at Park Avenue Communications (@ParkAvenueComms) hosted an event called First YEG – an evening celebrating local entrepreneurs and setting a place to make connections and collaborate with other small businesses. Iconoclast Koffiehuis provided the perfect setting for casual mingling and making those business connections. One interesting approach they had was upon getting into the event, guests were given a coloured ribbon that corresponded to the industry they were in. This helped guests narrow down and flag people from specific industries that they were most interested in chatting with.
Lots of great sponsors at the event too! Glow Juicery had a special Glow Cocktail with vodka, all food was provided by El Cortez, yummy desserts were provided by Block 1912, DJ by Adam Johan, and Lexus of Edmonton had a media wall and showed off a couple of fancy vehicles out front. There were even a few models that walked around wearing clothing from local designers. And of course, Vivid Ribbon was there to sponsor photography!
Overall, amazing evening and we will definitely be going to the next one! Met up with some incredible people and made some really tight business connections!
You all came here for the photos so here they are!
