Nothing beats a face to face conversation. Milldam works with clients to conceptualize, plan and execute public events that will bring in the right audience and leave them with the correct message that clients want them to take away. From scheduling engaging speakers to coordination of site setup and teardown, we have the experience to create and execute compelling events. Below are some of the latest events we have coordinated.

While in the Bay Area, we also met with a number of current clients and passed through both Los Angeles and Las Vegas on our way back to Boston! Enjoy a few images from our travels:
