This year, DMC marked 25 years in business providing thousands of expert solutions to our clients. When the world began opening up again, it was time for us to celebrate! Learn how we recognized this milestone in our offices across the country.
We celebrated our silver anniversary with sweet treats and personalized steins sent to each of our offices.

Denver Office Party
This year's celebrations looked different for every DMC office. Some kept the party at home by throwing the event in the office. DMC Denver ordered catering to the office and had game night. They reminisced on "How Far We've Come" while toasting with beers and tasting whiskeys in true DMC Denver style.
Chicago Homecoming Celebration
In our headquarters located in Chicago, we decided to throw a Homecoming-themed anniversary party including a Spirit Week leading up to the party. We decorated the whole office with crepe paper streamers and balloons.
In true homecoming fashion, we had a place to take posed pictures, a punch bowl, and plenty of snacks. We even had some four-legged friends in attendance to make the night a little more fun. It was wonderful to see each other again and to meet our newest coworkers who joined the team during our time working from home.

Other offices decided to take the team out for a lovely dinner. DMC Boston celebrated at a Japanese tapas-style restaurant in Cambridge. After the delicious three-course meal, the team ended their night with a few rounds of pool at a nearby arcade.

DMC St Louis went for a Tuscan flare to their fancy night out, while DMC New York found a speakeasy disguised behind a pawnshop entrance.

An Athletic Anniversary Party
Other teams hosted event outings to celebrate DMC's anniversary. Houston celebrated DMC's 25 years by marveling at the beauty and athleticism of acrobats at Cirque de Soleil.
Then there's DMC Seattle, who took party planning to a whole new level. DMC Seattle planned an entire evening of events with their Olympics-themed 25th Anniversary celebration!
Their events utilized a range of skills to showcase how diverse our DMC talent pool really is. There were the more typical events of pool or ping pong, but the more interesting events happened later on in the day. We might not know who can code the fastest in the office, but now we do know who can type the fastest, thanks to the typeracer competition.
The DMC Olympics gave a bit of a different flare to the game of hockey. Instead of a hockey stick, they used a pool cue. Instead of a puck, they used a taped wire spool. Instead of other hockey opponents, there were more wire spools. Ok, maybe this was less like hockey and more of a silly obstacle course, but it was very entertaining.
To test the team's face flexibility and dexterity, they had an Oreo eating competition that determined who was the fastest to get an Oreo from their forehead into their mouth without using their hands. Closing out the evening, no Olympics would be complete without an awards ceremony and presentation of metals.
We've had 25 years of expert solutions and look forward to many more. Thank you for being part of it!
