During the past holiday season, All Things Media (ATM) partnered with Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, a Stifel Company also known as KBW.
Traditionally, KBW hosts a lavished holiday event at NYC's Rockefeller Center to watch the annual tree lighting. Unfortunately, due to the global pandemic in 2020, in-person events were no longer an option, so KBW called on All Things Media to help create a virtual version of their traditional event. ATM's development team got right to work and in 4-short weeks created a KBW registration portal, virtual lobby complete with animated people, company branding, holiday music and decorations. The team at ATM was able to combine pre-taped and live segments into a seamless, online, live event, and did their best to replicate the festive vibe and cozy feeling of an in-person, holiday event.
With over 100 bank CEOs in attendance, the evening kicked off with a fireside chat along with annual reports and future projections. Following the business side of the event, everyone in attendance enjoyed a wine tasting hosted by the renowned sommelier Marco Molesini (as bottles of wine were shipped to individuals prior to the event). After the wine tasting the group was treated to a live comedy performance by the world famous comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. Sebastian joked with KBW's senior executives and picked people in the audience to playfully interact with. ATM's event team was able to spotlight those audience interactions in real time. The evening ended with holiday greetings from KBW's most senior staff members.
While nothing can replace the feeling of face-to-face interactions, All Things Media delivered the next best thing, and the evening was a complete success.
