Christina Martin- A Great Entertainer

Filed under: Events — 4:43 pm

Working with entertainers is always a great experience, sometimes you get the opportunity to work with someone who really understands your event space and the overall feeling you are trying to deliver to your client. We recently had the chance to work with Christina Martin and Dale Murray at a downeast event in Toronto. They were an absolute hit and better still so incredibly accommodating that we simply cannot wait to work with them again. Christina’s single Hello is number 5 on the East Coast Countdown.

Inspired by the Brier

Filed under: Events — 10:18 am

Halifax and the WTCC played host to the Brier last week. As a result we were feeling inspired and discovered that curling is a lot of fun.

As an added treat we had the Women’s World Champions Nancy Delahunt, Mary- Anne Arsenault, and Jennifer Baxter giving us tools and tips for playing the game!

‘Wish’ Fulfillment – a ddm event

Filed under: Events — 9:44 am

In September of 2008 ddm had the distinct pleasure of working with the Nova Scotia chapter of the Children’s Wish Foundation on their “Exile Island” event.

The ‘survivor theme’ event took place on George’s Island in the Halifax harbour. It was an amazing experience as everything came together on a particularly gorgeous day in Nova Scotia.

Cheryl Matthews, Chapter Director, Nova Scotia Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada had this to say about ddm’s work:

“Words just don’t say enough, I am ‘floating’ right now. What an event… I can’t begin to express my thoughts and feelings, WOW sums it up. I am a little overwhelmed today trying to get through the glowing comments…”

Ultimately, the event raised almost $500,000 – Wish fulfillment of the highest order. The best part was that all of the 10 wish kids connected with the event were able to have a wish granted!

Don Douloff of Meetings and Incentive Travel magazine recently published an article about the event- read the full article here.
