This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Shining Star Award - which focuses on celebrating and recognizing the people and companies that are making a difference and demonstrating significant achievement in the life sciences meeting management industry, including Corporate Social Responsibility programs.
The award was presented to both ACCESS and long-time partner client Dräger for their collaborative work on their "Park Build in the Desert" CSR program.
"We literally built a park from the ground up," expressed ACCESS Account Director Stacey Crivello. The event took place at Sunshine Acres - a children's home in Phoenix, AZ - where ACCESS worked with almost 500 Dräger employees to transform an empty dirt lot into a 20,000 square foot park - complete with 18,000 square feet of grass, hand-built park benches, a walking path, and freshly planted trees and bushes. The team even had time to repaint a basketball court and skate park, all in less than 5 hours.
