At this year’s Alliance Française De Chicago gala, guests had a roaring good time taking in the whimsy of 1920s Paris. The biennial event benefits the nonprofit institution, founded 120 years ago, which has become the Midwest’s leading French cultural and learning center. It’s dedicated to studying the language and exchange of friendship between the two countries, and has one of the largest private French libraries in the area.

The black-tie event was held at Chicago’s Four Seasons Hotel in May and was organized by the Women’s Board who hired HMR Designs to execute all the authentic details, from the Parisian flowers and décor to French-inspired cuisine. Live and silent auctions included international travel excursions, jewelry and other luxury items, and further entertainment was provided by the Stanley Paul Orchestra. Here is a look at sights from the night.

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

The Mob Museum, officially known as the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, celebrated its 10th anniversary with its first fundraising gala “Undercover of the Night” on Feb. 17 at the museum’s historic building in downtown Las Vegas. The museum can be booked for private meetings and events, with several function spaces and buyouts available.
