Bank of America Pop-Up, David Monn Win Big at Our Awards

April 10, 2008

Last night we unveiled the winners of our 2008 Event Style Awards at the Nokia Theater in Times Square, where some 700 industry types were on hand to see who would take home the evening’s top honors. David Monn’s work on the Guggenheim International Gala earned him three awards in the overall event decor, tabletop design, and nonprofit event concept departments, and he earned a fourth nod for his work on the Plaza’s 100th birthday. The evening’s other big winner was Bank of America’s “Gift on Fifth” pop-up, which won a total of five awards for Concentric Communications, Production Glue, and Emanate PR.

Best Gift Bag: Liz Claiborne Apparel fresh market event, submitted by Bowen & Company
As an alternative to the usual high-end luxury items found in fashion event gift bags, Bowen & Company developed a Greenmarket-inspired bag to reflect the Liz Claiborne Apparel Fresh Market event that unveiled the brand’s spring 2008 collection. The reusable tote held a notebook featuring sketches of the collection, as well as a loaf of fresh bread, heirloom tomatoes, a bottle of olive oil, fragrant basil, and several sunflowers. Bowen & Company had the bags delivered to each guest’s office.
