Beaudry Interactive Principal Valeria Beaudry said, “It was a wonderful opportunity to meet colleagues and friends on the West Coast and enable them to experience some of the interactives and games we install in theme parks, museums, and branded experiences across the country, including recent work for Sesame Place at SeaWorld Orlando."

Principal David Beaudry said, "This was a fantastic opportunity to give people first-hand experience of our work and process. Thank you to all who came out to spend some time playing with us!”

Refreshments included sips and snacks (from neighborhood favorite, Porto’s Bakery).

Many thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success - hosts, organizers, volunteers, TEA staff and all who attended.
