Let's Jam! 2009

Wednesday was ISES-LA's annual JAM (Joint Allied Mixer) event, held at the Millennium Biltmore hotel in downtown LA. As a committee member, we have been planning since March for this big event which involves all the event planning associations, vendors, exhibitors, ISES members, and attendees, usually with an attendance of over 500. What makes this event stand out from the usual trade shows is that we make it a fun social event as well, with drinks, food from our catering vendors, and music and lounge furniture to relax and chat.
It was a long day as we prepared the load in, set up, and prep all the booths, tables, music, registration, goody bags, decorations, and food. By the time the event started I was all sweaty and tired, but by the time I got in and saw the party in full swing, it definitely brought back my second wind!
Here are just some pictures of the amazing lounges set up on all three floors from our sponsors, Luna Party Rentals, FormDecor, Dazian Fabrics, and RrivreWorks.

Luna Party Rentals designed this one. Love the chandelier!
Jeff from FormDecor rocks! What great light-up furniture!
Amazing Chinese-inspired lounge area from RrvireWorks.

Here are some fabulous companies I was able to meet:
Lattes on Location
Chocolate Delights
Get Flipped!
Luna Party Rentals

And of course there were all the familiar faces whom I love and adore!
Me with Dora (my super fab Event Associate) and good friend Sue Cook (LAPD).
I was able to snap a few pictures during the event, but before I knew it 4 hours had passed and it was time to wrap up!
Champagne Showgirls always know how to show it off!
The fall tabletop from Divine Luxury Design.
Shirvan Designs creates a beautiful table masterpiece.
Thanks so much to the JAM committee members for all their hard work and dedication to make this event such a success! I felt truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with some of the industry's best. And many many thanks to all the fabulous volunteers who came out to help on the day of the event, including Joyce (my parking partner in crime!), Camilla Z. (TPG!) and her friend Lauren, and Lauren T.
