An example of the signage directing guests to the 'Viewing & Reflection Lounge' and the 'Free Coat Check' in the Business Building. Alberta School of Business Centennial Kick-Off Celebration Alberta School of Business Centennial Kick-Off Celebration Alberta School of Business Centennial Kick-Off Celebration In the 'Viewing & Reflection Lounge laptops were set up for guests to submit their memories of the School on the 'Reflections' page of the Centennial website. There were tabletop cards at each laptop that provided direction to guests if they needed it. Every guest who made a submission was also entered into a contest for a series of fantastic prizes. Justine Ma helped us create a message for the guests of the 'Viewing & Reflection Lounge' in calligraphy. We thought the calligraphy would compliment the vintage theme.

Centennial banners, giant '100' balloons, and colored balloons decorated the 'Viewing & Reflection Lounge'.
