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. NYC Chef Alicia Walter designed a magnificent meal, all focused around honey, of course! STAMP designed and produced the event. Photo Credit: Margarita Corporan.
Come Together for ADCOLOR
It was the hottest ticket in town! For the first time in its 11 years, the ADCOLOR Conference & Awards was a sold out event. Guests made their way to Hollywood to mix and mingle with the established and rising stars of the advertising and tech industries. The Conference included a panel with Snoop Dogg that enchanted the audience, while the Awards featured actors and activists like Jesse Williams, Wilson Cruz, and newly-minted Emmy Award winner, Lena Waithe. Beyond the mainstage events, guests engaged with virtual and augmented reality activations, photo booths, and more sponsored by tech giants like Facebook, Google, and Oath: A Verizon Company.

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.
