LOOK2016 makes The Globe and Mail’s 2016 Top 5 Best Parties
Release Date: December 19, 2016
The Boom team is thrilled to see Contemporary Calgary’s LOOK2016 make The Globe and Mail‘s Top Five Best Parties of 2016! This may be our second year on this list, but the excitement never gets old.
“… The event always sells out early and is on the social calendar of every in-the-know Calgarian for good reason. The evening is capital-F fun and is served with a side of substance.” – Nolan Bryant
Thank you to all of the wonderful partners and sponsors who worked together to see this event through, and- of course- thank you to the reason for it all- Contemporary Calgary. It would seem 2016 is going out with a Bang… or a Boom.
