It’s once again that time of year when members of SMPS-NY celebrate the achievements, creativity, and leadership of our Chapter by throwing ourselves an elegant Awards Gala. The 2015 Gala will be held at Motivo, a dramatic two-story space that will be festively decorated for the occasion. Once guests enter Motivo, they will have the opportunity to glam it up like the marketing superstars they are, while being photographed in front of the step & repeat banner featuring the logos of this year’s awesome annual sponsors and Gala sponsors. (Thank you, sponsors!)
