The OfficeNinjas IRL Marketplace, a.k.a. reason #5 to attend OfficeNinjas IRL, is the anti-trade show, if you will. It’s the interactive, no pressure, very chill area of the event where you’ll discover all of your new favorite vendors—all without the overwhelming banners, canned pitches, and hard sells. You’ll get to enjoy honest conversations with some of our absolute favorite partners.
As you know, we’re passionate about what we do, we believe in the power of the admin community, and we’re huge sticklers about only working with companies who share the same values. Being a little picky about our partners also means that you get access to the best products, resources, and customer service experiences.
All that being said… We have the most kick-ass partners for OfficeNinjas IRL on October 21! Check them out!
First, we’ve got to give it up for sixty five hundred, our venue partner. Without them there would be no marketplace. We can’t wait for you to see everything this venue has to offer: 20,000 square feet of open space, stained concrete floors, 20 ft. pine ceilings, a modern A/V system, and lavish décor. The elegant combination of mid-century construction and a modern, refurbished interior makes it a perfect space for OfficeNinjas IRL. Register to attend #OfficeNinjasIRL!
We’re so thrilled to partner with Low Country Quisine and their founder, Chef Jolié. First of all, their food is amazing. Does it get any better than shrimp and grits or mac and cheese? (Answer: No, it does not.)
Second of all, Low Country Quisine truly believes in getting to know their customers and establishing lasting relationships (just like OfficeNinjas!). As one of the few women-owned Dallas catering companies, Low Country Quisine brings quality, taste, and personality to the table. Just check out one of their many TV segments and see for yourself!

Basically, they put on a SHOW. (Seriously—consider booking them for your next office party.) We can’t wait to see them in action at OfficeNinjas IRL. Register to attend #OfficeNinjasIRL!

Abel Garcia Designs
This one’s really cool. Local artist Abel Garcia will be painting a complete work of art over the course of the evening. His inspiration? All of you! He’ll be asking ninja attendees to contribute to the piece (a brush stroke here and there) to help capture the mood and essence of the evening. Abel will reveal the finished work near the conclusion of the event. Register to attend #OfficeNinjasIRL!
Getting a little tired of the burritos and turkey sandwiches in your zip code? Food delivery sites are convenient, but you’ll always be limited to the lunch joints and takeout spots that offer delivery services. DoorDash is different. You can order from any of the participating 400 restaurants (including fancy ones that don’t normally deliver), and DoorDash will pick up your food and deliver it to your office within 30 to 60 minutes. DoorDash also allows multiple people to edit and pay for one group order. They serve 17 major metro areas nationwide and just launched in Dallas this year!
Excited? You should be!
Want in? We still have a few tickets left. But we will sell out, so snag yours today!
