Sending out a huge THANK YOU to DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Houston at Greenway Plaza for hosting O&GA International’s networking event August 17th!  The event was beautifully decorated with pink and green décor and the food spread was amazing!  Event guests were treated to fish tacos, seasoned jicama, a macaroni station, cheese and crackers, chips and salsa, yummy desserts and a deliciously refreshing beverage station.  Each guest had the opportunity to take a tour of the hotel and, as a treat, each guest received a little basket of DoubleTree’s famous cookies to take home.

THANK YOU for Helping Us Celebrate Our Outstanding Supporters at the O&GA Vendor Appreciation Event – an Old Hollywood Affair!

This past Friday was a BLAST!  Everyone came out Old Hollywood style to help Oil & Gas Admins International celebrate outstanding vendors!  We truly thank everyone that attended and appreciate you for sharing your Memorial Day weekend with us!  Congratulations to all the award recipients!  Check out the award recipient and event photos below! ⇓

Attendees were WOWED by the beautiful decor!  Tables were adorned with roses and crystal with beautiful gold table cloths and chair covers.  Large old Hollywood photos covered the rooms, setting the perfect scene.  A walk down the red carpet led to hand-carved Oscar inspired statues and even a hand-carved Lion’s head – all courtesy of Imagine That!

Along with the mingling and enjoyment, My Event is the Bomb provided an interactive photo booth that gave attendees an opportunity to let their hair down and have a lot of fun.  To top it off, P’s & Q’s Beverage Services served delicious champagne, wine and other beverages to go with the theme of the event.

SEE THE FUN PHOTO BOOTH ACTION HERE >> 

As the ceremony drew near, attendees enjoyed a DELICIOUS food spread of Ahi tuna, White Cheddar Grits topped with braised beef, and a fabulous salad bar provided by Bailey Connor Catering.  The desserts of strawberry shortcake and flaming S’more shooters nearly stole the show!

The entire exceptional event was hosted by HSR Event Center.  We sincerely appreciate their hospitality and their phenomenal facility.  The room they provided for our award reception was appointed with a giant screened wall that displayed the logo of each honoree and was the talk of the event!

Every aspect of the event was wonderfully captured by MIM Television.
