From Hive to Table
Team STAMP was busy as bees producing a press and influencer experience for the National Honey Board. Ethereal, life-size bee wings gave guests the perfect social media moment. But the real showstopper was the luscious tasting table composed of honeycombs and wild flowers. Guests enjoyed themed cocktails and honey varietals, before learning how honey is made by checking out a live bee hive. Once seated for dinner, guests experienced the journey of the bee, from hive to table, through a custom Virtual Reality experience.

Party on the Pier
On a beautiful, sunny day in June, guests of all ages gathered on Pier 62’s Chelsea Lawn Bowl to support the Friends of Hudson River Park Playground Committee and their first Backyard BBQ! Abigail Kirsch catered the event – complete with an All-American barbeque buffet, mason jar margaritas, and of course – juice boxes for the little ones. Kids enjoyed a wide range of activities – from face painting and lawn games to soccer, fishing, and giant bubbles, while a live band played classic summertime hits as the sun set over the water. STAMP was proud to handle event production and overall logistics for this picture-perfect evening. Photo Credit: Katie Lyman.

Point Honors the Best and Brightest
The Point Honors New York Gala was held at the Plaza Hotel this year and STAMP was delighted to work with returning client Point Foundation, as they raised money to support their misson of providing scholarships to LGBTQ youth. The evening, hosted by comedian Emma Willman, honored Dustin Lance Black, Uzo Aduba, and Thomas Roberts for their inspirational work, and featured special performances by Emily Skeggs and Matt Doyle.

A Seed to Plate Journey
STAMP again partnered with Seeds of Change, this time taking guests on a “seed to plate” journey, showcasing local, organic produce and herbs. Upon entering Union Square’s Project Farmhouse, guests were transported to a lush garden, complete with grass flooring and a greenery wall with the event logo rendered in seeds. After enjoying herb-infused beverages, guests visited the potting station near the built-in hydroponic garden, where they learned how to plant sprouted herbs. Finally, guests enjoyed a family-style meal featuring healthy, natural ingredients. STAMP developed and executed the creative concept for the event and handled all logistics.

STAMP was excited to design and produce an event to launch the UNCLE BEN’S® Brand Ben’s Beginners™ Cooking Program. The event showcased the “past, present and future” of home cooking. Our photo booth represented the “past” and was an authentic 70’s style room with a one of a kind floor made entirely out of rice and an Uncle Ben’s logo rug. The participatory cooking demos in the modern kitchen was the “present” and culminated in a seated dinner for 50 in the chic dining area where guests could enjoy the fruits of their labor. And for the “future,” guests took cooking lessons on the Ben’s Beginners™ website featured on oversized iPads clustered on a futuristic, sculptural kiosk. Photo credit: Fabio Assalone
STAMP was invited to geek out in Silicon Valley and partner with Google on a series of events at their Mountainview Campus and around the Bay Area. We handled all the event and production logistics as well as event design. Needless to say, it was a mind blowing and bending few days. Daytime events included presentations by industry leaders and think tank sessions while the evenings were all about fun and partying.
GQ honored the most gentlemanly celebs for the annual Gentleman’s Ball.
