Lively entertainment from tribute singing group the Atlantic City Boys, gourmet food, endless drinks, and a relaxed atmosphere all helped attendees unwind after two days of business in the IAADFS Trademarket.

Torben Vedel Andersen, global sales director for Danzka Vodka Copenhagen ApS, enjoys the Gala Evening every year.

“It’s great because we can compete together all day and have fun together all night,” he said. “It’s relaxing and we can have a good laugh — there’s normally a good photo show of the week as it has been. You have fun looking for yourself and seeing your colleagues in funny ways.”

“It’s a nice way to relax and socialize with industry people outside of the regular business meetings,” said another attendee. “A lot of this business is based on relationships and people know each other from year to year and people know the companies and all of the things happen after hours. It’s fantastic.”
