Beginning in Bremerton, Wash., Thomas/Boyd handled publicity and special event planning and management for the return of the USS New Jersey through the Panama Canal. We coordinated the three-day event in Panama, which was attended by more than 300 VIPs and 30 members of the multi-lingual, international press corps. The event was hosted by former New Jersey Governor Christie Whitman.
Once berthed in Camden, we handled the 2,000-person grand-opening event. For several years, we managed media relations efforts to drive brand awareness for the floating museum and secured significant regional and national news coverage.
