About the Partners Banquet
Our conference has become known for its banquet and this year’s event will be no exception. All you can eat, music, dancing and always a few surprises are some of the ingredients for a special, fun-filled night! Each year is a totally different atmosphere and event theme. The Partners Banquet is also a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, make new friends.
Exciting, Unique, and Amazing
Over the years, each banquet has been totally unique. Past events have included a New Orleans Dinner Cruise, an Evening of Jazz, an Italian feast, a Portuguese Bar-B-Que, a Spanish Fiesta, Cinco de Mayo Celebration and a Rockin’ Dance Party. Entertainment has included special musical guests and Flamenco and Salsa dance troupes. During the three days of the conference we will be working hard and the Partner’s Banquet is the time to play hard!
The 2013 Partners Banquet
A true New Orleans Mardi Gras from the incredible assortment of Creole food to the music of NJ’s leading New Orleans blues band, The VooDudes. Adding to the ambiance, each guest received beads, hats and masks. Lots of dancing. Always a theme, always different, always fun, and always full of surprises. You will not believe what happens next year.
The 2014 Partners Banquet
Directions to an unmarked red door, knock three times and if you knew the password you went down a ramp and back in history to the roaring 20′s.
Costumed attendees added to the mood but the surprise of the night was the opportunity to get yourself a Fantasy Photo Souvenir. Anyone look formulary.
The 2015 Partners Banquet
The Lava Lounge was the home to a musical battle of the ’60s when the British Invasion took the US by storm but the US was quick to respond. Great dance music and costumed attendees took us back to the time were everyone knew the works to every song.
The 2016 Partners Banquet
Welcome to the STARS Longue. Attendees walked the red carpet to find Joan Rivers welcoming them in to JAG’s Pop Up Club. The entertainment included NJ comic Gary Delena and celebrity impersonator Holly Faris with lots of audience participation.
The Conference Committee made a special presentation to Stephanie Gibbons in recognition of her years of service in the production of JAG’s Annual Conference.
