AK Caters AMC Networks’ Upfront

From celebrity appearances to impressive 65-foot screens, AMC Networks’ 2017 Upfront was nothing short of extraordinary. Needless to say, we were thrilled to partner with Empire Entertainment to help bring the epic event to life for over 500 media buyers, advertisers, industry insiders and press!

Held at Skylight Clarskson North, the event kicked off with a reception where guests enjoyed butlered hors d’oeuvres — including our signature Chicken & Waffles and BLT Shortcakes. From there, everyone moved into the main space adorned with oversized screens and ambient lighting. Everyone was treated to a surprise guest at each table — actors from flagship shows across the brand’s family of networks (such as The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus and Jeffrey Dean Morgan; Better Call Saul’s Jonathan Banks; and Portlandia’s Fred Armisen).

And what’s a party without an after-party?! Following the dinner and presentation, guest mingled and snapped pics with celebs while snacking on mini sliders, pizzettas and sugar & spiced mini donuts — and sipped drinks from an intricately designed light-up bar.
