Epic Celebration of Administrative Badassery = Complete

For this year, anyway!

The day was Wednesday, April 26, and it’ll go down in OfficeNinjas history. Halfway into our week-long celebration of administrative maestros, we pulled out all the stops and threw a downright admazing party. It was a wild ride of admin awesomeness, and 400 Ninjas were essential to that magic. Connections were made, music was bumpin’, the banking hall was packed, and we loved every second.

Read the full recap—with photos!

WHAT BLEW THE ROOF OFF #AdminBash

Ninja Networking

The diverse Ninja community—comprising office managers, executive assistants, and operations pros from all industries and backgrounds—flew in from all over the country to meet IRL.

Tasty Bites & Drinks

49 Square Catering gave Ninja taste buds a jolt of flavor—and to-die-for Beverages Unlimited provided an equally amazing flow of tasty drinks.

The LEGENDARY Swag Bag

Legends get remembered for a reason. Award-winning retractable lint rollers, silky smooth chocolates and truffles, and gourmet to-go lunch totes were three of those reasons this year.

Massage Lounge

Walking out of Admin Bash stress and knot-free? The cherry on top of a great party—just ask the dozens of Ninjas who indulged.

Hand-Picked Vendor Market

Ninjas needed something a bit more fun than business cards—and buttons with vetted vendor and service provider logos was the perfect way to meet new go-tos for workplace needs. Decking out lanyards with those buttons? That was a bonus.

Mega Raffle Prizes

We banned corny gift baskets—and got restaurant gift certificates, hotel getaways, and airline tickets instead. Ninjas walked out with more than $10,000 in prizes.

Live Entertainment

Nothing’s better than a live band when it comes to ramping up the party vibe. We cranked it to ten—maybe eleven.
