    3. A&E Drafts Abstract Prison for \'Breakout Kings\' Launch Party [new York]

      A&E Drafts Abstract Prison for \'Breakout Kings\' Launch Party [new York]
      To mark the forthcoming premiere of its new drama series Breakout Kings, A&E hosted a jailhouse-themed reception at Stage 37, putting 236 guests in an environment that echoed the cop-and-convict premise of the TV show. But rather than create an uncomfortably realistic replica of a detention facility for the event on Wednesday, March 2, the network opted to single out specific imagery and disperse those visual elements across the raw, warehouse-like space. The result was a setting more conceptual than overwhelmingly thematic. To design and produce the event, A&E's publicity team tapped MKG, which employed lighting, furniture ...

      Grey Goose Sponsors First \"Worthy 30\" Party [TORONTO]
      National Post columnist Shinan Govani's "Worthy 30" list of Toronto's most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes is a must-read for the city's young social set. So the first edition of the Worthy 30 cocktail party, held February 24 at TIFF Bell Lightbox, was a prime opportunity for sponsor Grey Goose to reach this demographic. But because the evening was billed as a tasteful, exclusive event, they didn't want to hit guests over the head with branding. "Grey Goose didn't want the party to be all about their logo and name everywhere," said Sebastien Centner, director of ...
