It's crazy to think how far the event has evolved in its 12 year history...
It all started back in 2012, with just a handful of friends...
The next year, in 2013, we were already joining forces with 10+ cities across the globe–from Denver Colorado to Zagreb Croatia–all of which hosted James Bond soirees in the span of a few days, with every event donating to the same charity, to help bring clean drinking water to people in developing countries.
The following year, in 2014, both the Pittsburgh post-Gazette and the Tribune covered 007’s grand entrance, as he circled Market Square in his signature Aston Martin. We also introduce a “wine tasting” to the event.
The following year, in 2015, the event featured an exotic car display, with vehicles shipped in from Cleveland Motor Sports. It was also the first year we introduced a masquerade concept to the event.
The following year, in 2016, we expanded the event into a two-day affair, starting at the Smart House Mansion, and then followed up the next day at Perle Champagne Bar.
The following year, in 2017, we added a VIP yacht cruise to the event.
The following year, in 2018, we moved the main event to a larger venue in the Strip District.
In 2019, we brought in designers from all over the globe.
In 2020, we went global with a digital event that raised over $40k for charity in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.
In 2021, we joined forces with Pittsburgh Fashion Week to commemorate the 10th year anniversary of the event and the release of Daniel Craig’s final appearance of James Bond. The event featured champagne drone delivery service to the yacht preparty, aerialist champagne pouring at the main event, two internationally recognized James Bond doubles, holographic visual technology, a classified afterparty, and more. And then in 2022, we took things to yet another level, as we celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the James Bond films...
