GENYOUth 2017 Gala: A Celebration
of the Creative, Curious + Bold
GENYOUth nurtures healthy, high-achieving schools by empowering its youth as change-agents in their local communities. Hundreds of notable business and thought leaders, philanthropists, politicians, and athletes come together to show support at the organization’s events.
In its second year of producing GENYOUth’s annual gala, Eventique was inspired by the geometrical shape and size of 2017’s event location, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on the Hudson River, and created a seamless 160 foot projection wall, the largest of its kind ever to
be put in the decommissioned battleship.
The evening’s highlights included moving speeches from students of the high-achieving school communities which GENYOUth has enabled, a keynote address from former President, Bill Clinton, and the event’s honoree, former USDA Secretary, Tom Vilsach. Additional remarks came from National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell and SAP CEO, Bill McDermott, among many others.
Eventique was responsible for complete event production of the gala, including venue sourcing, event design, run of show, visual content, event branding, opening videos, and sponsor activation management.
