On behalf of Canadian Lentils I am happy to provide reference that we worked with Jennifer Powell and her team with Hart & Galla to plan and execute an overwhelmingly successful Mardi Gras themed event at BlissDom Canada Conference on Friday October 16th.
Conventional conference space was transoformed into New Orleans and the French Quarter to celebrate Mardi Gras and elevate the Canadian Lentils promotional brand, connecting the fun, excitement, and uniqueness of Mardi Gras to the versatility of lentils in cuisine.
Jennifer and her team took an idea and built it out into a living and interactive experience for us, incorporating entertainment, character, activities, and of course elevating the most important piece – the food! Jennifer’s ideas are what made the event a unique and over the top experience, and her connections to get it done on the ground were imperative to the success of the event.
We have relied on Hart & Galla’s expertise for multiple events now – their commitment to creativity, thinking outside the box, and presenting a truly experiential event that could never be re-created is a tribute to their success. They leave attendees talking for months and years to come about how great the parties we throw together are.
