We are so excited to announce that Craig Ferguson will be hosting the ECHO Gala this year! He is the host of the Emmy Award-nominated Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that airs on ABC, and will be sure to have the crowd laughing and enjoying a great time in San Francisco!
Random K-squared fact #1: He began his entertainment career as a drummer in a UK rock band called “Exposure”. Too bad we can’t get him to be the live music at ECHO!
We will settle for host.
Random K-squared fact #2: Other TV celebrities that used to play drums include Jerry Lewis, Jamie Oliver, and one-time Thomas the Tank Engine narrator, Ringo Starr!
The 2010 DMA International ECHO Awards will be held on Tuesday, October 12, at the Moscone Center, San Francisco. Get your tickets now!
As most of you know, the ECHO Awards celebrate the best of direct, digital, and interactive marketing’s creative energy from around the world. We have a whole day of ECHO events so you can immerse yourself in all things ECHO throughout the day on Tuesday. Visit the ECHO Gallery Lounge, or learn from the experts at the ECHO Spotlight sessions, but make sure to save your energy for the evening’s events. The Gala begins in the Moscone Convention Center Esplanade Upper Foyer with a networking reception, which features live music (will Craig Ferguson surprise us with an impromptu 20-minute drum solo? No, he will not. But it’ll be good anyway). Then, the main event, a full-course, seated dinner and while the Awards are presented, but things don’t stop there! Loosen your black ties and ball gowns (it is San Francisco you know), if you’ve chosen to get dressed up, and come join K-squared at the ECHO After Party at Temple Bar, to end the night in the right way.
REGISTER NOW! You don’t want to miss out….no really, register NOW.. DMA2010’s programming team, K-Squared (Katie Cunningham and Keith Baker), will personally see to it you have an unforgettable night.
