On a snowy night in NYC, STAMP produced the 2017 Product of the Year Awards at The Edison Ballroom. Actresses Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer hosted the awards show, presenting 29 trophies to winners (with a little help from the Gotham City Cheerleader Squad). Guests enjoyed interactive iPad centerpieces on their dinner tables, an epic confetti cannon conclusion to the show, and a photobooth, ice sculpture, and live DJ at the Smirnoff-hosted after party.

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
Capping off three days of events, Orbis held a once-in-20 year gala to launch their new Flying Eye Hospital.

STAMP handled all logistics, production, and guest management.
