Local union leaders praise BMA for producing fantastic event.

BMA Media Group transformed the home of the champion Baltimore Ravens – M&T Bank Stadium in downtown Baltimore – into a gala celebration location as it planned and produced a completely turn-key event for the 50th Anniversary of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 24 of Baltimore on March 24, 2012.

LaborTools produced a video that documents the history of the local with well-researched commentary and imagery showing the local's impact on its city and industry over the past century. Along with a LaborTools-created program book, the video was distributed to all event attendees.

LaborTools handled all aspects of the event, from announcements to invitations and advertising to printing as well as catering, entertainment, décor and live production.

Local 24 leaders hailed the event as an unequaled success. Local 24 Business Manager Roger Lash said, "Thanks to BMA Media, our anniversary event was fantastic and beyond memorable. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was a 15. BMA really hit it out of the park!"


Next up in the Fall of 2012, LaborTools is producing the 100th anniversary events of IBEW 332 in San Jose and IBEW Local 146 in Decatur.
