Inside the Met Club – a shining and welcoming atmosphere with a well-organized setup. Sponsors’ banners on each side, a large step and repeat reading BCG (Bervann Capital Gala) at the center. A well-designed name tag was given to you at the check-in desk, next step was standing on the red carpet for a photo shoot by several photographers, and you were on your way to the ballroom.
The President’s Ballroom – an exquisite venue, with an historical classic vibe, all red carpeted, high-ceilings, segmented by windows overlooking Central Park, red curtains similar to those French castles, 2 large American bars at each corner with all-you-could-drink, a dozen of waitresses passing by with light foods, a band playing different types of music, the podium set before another but larger step and repeat “BCG”.
