MPIGNY's Engagement Evening
MPIGNY love was in the air at the premiere of New York’s newest venue, The Bank Space at The Manhattan Center. Guests dined on mouthwatering culinary delights provided by The Wyndham New Yorker Hotel, while chatting with Board and Committee members and learning all that MPIGNY has to offer. DJ Mike DeMaio from Sound Explosion Event Group had the crowd moving and Brand Activation Services provided a versatile photo booth allowing attendees to choose various backgrounds to create fun memories of the event. Two lucky raffle winners won weekend stays, kindly provided by Accor Hotels, at two of their finest establishments in Montreal – The Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Montreal and the Sofitel Montreal Golden Mile. A special thank you to our gracious sponsor, Business Events Canada.
