What say’s summer in Boston more than an evening spent mingling with peers on a rooftop overlooking the city?!
Even a deluge rain shower couldn’t dampen the spirits of 140 attendees at the recent MPI New England Summer in the City Annual Summer Industry Outing on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at the Rooftop@Revere at the Revere Hotel. Networking took place while surrounded by gorgeous views. With ominous rain clouds threatening all day, Amazing Celebrations & Events forged ahead and decorated the rooftop lounge and bar with some awesome MPI New England branded pillows, window clings, signage, flip flops, lanterns and more. Thanks to the Revere Hotel’s catering team, guests enjoyed delicious food stations, passed hors d’oeuvres and beverages – from mini-lobster rolls to taco stations. Sponsor partners included Fun Enterprises who provided a caricature artist as well as a Bear Friends Forever Station. Everyone loved stuffing the bears and adding decorated t-shirts for the cuddly animals that will be donated to military families through Operation Shower. Snap Seat Photo Booth was kept busy with their photo station complete with fun props. Red Sox VR, provided a new virtual reality experience that made attendees feel like they were at home plate at Fenway Park! Special thanks goes out to David Fox Photography, Gateway Productions, and Next Level Promotions for offering their services to enhance the event.
When the rain hit and with shouts of “SAVE THE GUACAMOLE,” every die-hard MPI New Englander ran for cover inside the pool area. Not to give up an opportunity, a networking frenzy ensued as everyone drip-dried their frizzy hair and soggy clothes. You would have thought that everyone would have abandoned ship… heck no! The rain let up, squeegees pushed away the water, and everyone headed back out to the roof deck to enjoy the rest of the evening until the sun went down.
What a great way to kick off a new year for MPI New England!
