Each year we try to do something fun, exciting and outside of the box for our opening reception, in 2018 it was a San Diego Padres game, 2017 we did a rooftop party pool side. For 2019, we have something even better planned that involves team building with a New Orleans twist. Sponsors will not only get recognition on signage but also the opportunity to lead a team of MAC attendees in building a mini Mardi Gras float! What better way to get to know the attendees.
