SIEDC hosts another successful Business Conference
The SIEDC held its 14th annual Business Conference on Wednesday, April 25TH at Nicotra’s Ballroom at the Hilton Garden Inn. With more than 150 vendors present, this 12-hour event included informative seminars, business-to-business vending & networking, and some keynote speaking sessions.
INDUSTRY was on hand all day showcasing an incredible sculpture by American Artist Scott LoBaido, which inspired by past issues of INDUSTRY. This 8′ tall tinfoil, wood, and paper mache (old INDUSTRY issues) was lit by LED lights as it stood on a table, above the crowd, almost touching the ceiling. The enormity of the piece, combined with the complexity of the lighting colors and shadows was another successful piece for artist Scott LaBaido, best know for his “Flags Across America” campaign from a few years back.
The show was even more remarkable as three models from ‘Marias Angels‘ came to take pictures with the many businesses and attendees of the show. Amanda, Taylor and Rachele were excited to spend the day, collaborating with INDUSTRY and the SIEDC.
Overall, the SIEDC put together another wonderfully successful business event for Staten Islanders, which INDUSTRY was thrilled to be a sponsor of.
