New Client Announcement:

We’re excited to be working with Lucky Strike; a unique entertainment bar and restaurant that features bowling lanes, music and an energetic crowd. Jenna Communications will host an event there dubbed Suits & Strikes happening on Sunday, November 9 from 1- 4 p.m. The event is powered by Lucky Strike and the charity, Suiting Warriors which provides suits for men transitioning from war to the workplace. One suit could change a veterans’ life for the better. That suit can create a first impression allowing introductions, connections, opportunities and advancement.

 

Event Recaps:

The Ultimate Networking party always brings together some of Philly’s top business minds. On October 21 we met new friends and caught up with old ones at Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House in West Chester. There was a lot of networking and exchanging of business cards. To top it all off, some of the guests won great prizes during the raffle. Just remember to bring your business cards and a smile to the next event.

The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Pennsylvania/Delaware/New Jersey chapter held its 13th Annual Product Parade on Wednesday, October 15 during The DesignPhiladelphia Festival.  It’s a nine day city-wide celebration for the Philadelphia Center of Architecture.  The Product Parade is traditionally a tradeshow for commercial interior designers who join together for the week.  This year was particularly memorable because the event was open to the general public for the first time. The event featured numerous industry professionals, experts, students and people who just went to check out the show. Fox 29 Good Day even had something to say about the event. Check out Mike Jerrick and Alex Holley here: Fox 29 mentions IIDA Product Parade.

Doctors Express had a wicked time at the Witches of Narberth Festival on Saturday, October 25.  Children and adults enjoyed a scavenger hunt while employees from Doctors Express passed out goodies for all of the kids to enjoy. Along the way children laughed, played, won prizes and of course ate candy.
