June has been one of the busiest months of 2018. With several important client events, the Flying Camel team has been hard at work, from managing celebrity appearances with supermodel Cindy Crawford to partnerships with tech influencer Amber Mac. Somehow we managed to squeeze in some time on the golf course… working a client sponsored tent at the NKBA Annual Golf Tournament. Here are a few highlights on what the caravan has been up to.
Amber Mac at the GROHE LIVE Centre in NYC
GROHE Canada kicked off their exciting new partnership with Amber Mac with a tour of the flagship GROHE Live! Center in NYC. Leanne headed to The Big Apple with Amber who, on June 1st, took to Facebook for a LIVE walk through of some of the industry’s most tech-savvy water innovations.
Kitchen Bath China with the NKBA and KBIS
Camel, and all-round rock star, Debbie packed her bags for Shanghai, China! More than just a week in her motherland, she acted as the NKBA and KBIS team’s translator while they toured the largest kitchen and bath trade show in Asia.
Cosentino Toronto City Grand Re-opening with Cindy Crawford
Cosentino officially re-opened their first Canadian City Showroom in Toronto, located in the heart of Toronto’s Design District. In celebration of the grand re-opening, a special VIP event took place on June 12th , welcoming close to 300 guests from Toronto’s architecture and design community.
Several special guests were in attendance including supermodel and Silestone global brand ambassador Cindy Crawford and Toronto chef and restauranteur, Grant van Gameren. Cindy and Grant participated in an engaging panel conversation focused on the intersection of food, lifestyle and design, which was moderated by Lynda Reeves, founder of House & Home Magazine. The entire team supported the event making it a special night to remember.
NKBA Ontario Chapter 40th Annual Golf Tournament
On June 13th , Erin and Olivia put on their Cosentino golf outfits and hit the links representing Cosentino at the NKBA Ontario Chapter 40th Annual Golf Tournament. The ladies were popular that day as they were put in charge of managing the beer tent on the 11th hole. Here are Erin and Olivia just moments before a thunderstorm passed over the golf course, soaking both the tent and the camels! Note to self: Always have a dry outfit handy in your car – Olivia did. Erin did not.
AZURE Magazine’s 2018 AZ Awards Gala
One of the Camels’ favourite events of the year, the AZURE AZ Awards Gala took place on Friday, June 22nd at the Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto. Flying Camel had two clients sponsoring the event this year with Cosentino as a Presenting Partner and DXV as a Gala Sponsor.
Cosentino enlisted the talented artist Jessica Gorlicky, known as JESSGO, who wowed guests with a live painting of the bright Toronto cityscape on two slabs of ultra-compact Dekton in Trilium, part of their new Industrial Collection.
DXV showcased select pieces of their new DXV Modulus collection alongside a bright faucet display of GROHE’s Essence Semi-Pro faucets. Attendees were given the chance to enter a draw to win a faucet of their choice.
That’s a wrap for June 2018! Onwards and upwards towards more fun-filled client events to come!
