Pride Toronto Gala & Awards

Client: Pride Toronto

Dragos Productions was the event manager for Pride Toronto's Gala & Awards ceremony from 2008-2010.

In 2009, Dragos Productions worked with the Pride Toronto team to bring the event to new heights. The event theme was "Looking Back. Looking Forward." and was a retrospective on the gains the queer community has made, from a human rights perspective, since the Stonewall Riots in 1969. Dragos worked with its network of suppliers to transform the Carlu and create an awe inspiring Awards and entertainment program.

High value guests at this event included Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, Education Minister Kathleen Wynne and federal Transport Minister John Baird amongst others. Dragos Productions was responsible for ensuring that these guests were properly attended to before and during the event. As such, Dragos Productions has received personal thanks and congratulations from many guests, including Premier McGuinty.

Skillful management and excellent relationships with our suppliers allowed the Dragos team to produce a highly successful event that came in 7.5% under budget.
