It was every recruiters dream: a room filled with today’s young rising stars from media, advertising, marketing and PR.

The group was on hand for a cocktail reception at Toronto’s CityLine Studio Wednesday night to celebrate Marketing‘s first ever 30 Under 30 list of the industry’s brightest talent.

Though Marketing teased a selection of names in the days leading up the event, editor-in-chief Tom Gierasimczuk, revealed the full 30 Under 30 list, and announced that Yael Cohen, the Vancouver-based CEO of F*** Cancer, made the cover.

The response to the event was overwhelming and tickets sold out quickly.  In case you missed it, here’s a look at last night’s party:
