The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner weekend brings together high-profile politicians, journalists, and celebrities for exclusive parties and signature events. In 2022, CNN held an invite-only brunch themed “From the White House to the World” at the AutoShop in the Union Market District, celebrating CNN as the leader in global news to close out the weekend. Linder helped CNN plan and produce a unique event that captured its brand and highlighted its global reach. Guests were transported into an experience highlighting the varying cultures, tastes, and flavors from CNN’s multiple international offices.
