Most Successful Taste of Technology Ever

Strategic Connections Hosts Most Successful Event Yet

On October 26th, 2017, Strategic Connections hosted its annual Taste of Technology event at the Angus Barn Pavilion from 3 PM to 7 PM, and is proud to announce that this year’s Taste of Technology was the most successful event the company has ever hosted. Even during the planning phase, the employees knew they were about to be a part of something special. The Casino night theme filled the planners and staffers with vim and vigor, and the wonderful venue of the Angus Barn Pavilion, service of the Angus Barn staff, and delicious food complemented that energy to transform the night into one to remember.


The attendees enjoyed themselves more even than the employees planning the event. Said one business owner: “It was a great event and we have lots of business cards for our next project. I already passed your name on to the PM for the next phase cutout.” While the improvements to business were a common theme of the compliments we received about the event, a different attendee expressed a much more common attitude: “we all had too much fun!”

The food, catered by Angus Barn, certainly did not disappoint. The evening started with scallop, pulled pork tartlet, and caprese skewer hors d’oeuvres carried around on trays. As the evening progressed, guest could access an NY Strip carving station, black n’ bleu sliders, shrimp and grits, marinated chicken kabobs, mac and cheese, asparagus, and sweet potato fries. Angus Barn capped their delicious catering with award-winning chocolate chess tartlets with homemade whipped cream. An open bar was available throughout.

The over 200 attendees we had loved the Casino theme and the ability to buy raffle tickets with their funny money, as it gave them both a reason to visit the vendor booths and a reward for doing so. In addition, it got them around the floor and they were able to visit separate booths showcasing the technology of the seven technology divisions represented by Strategic Connections. Finally, at the end of the evening we held a raffle with the funny money tickets, and certain lucky winners walked away with prizes for their canny plays on the tables.

In addition, Strategic Connections added a new element to our Taste of Technology event this year with an AIA Continuing Education class called “EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES THAT WILL CHANGE THE FUTURE OF A/V”. Presented by Middle Atlantic and held at the Angus Barn, 11 architects registered for the event. We are proud to be a local thought leader and education source!
