Thank you for an Amazing Year!

priscilla-du-preez-bJPn27RFg0Y-unsplash As we prepare for the exciting rush of holiday events allow us to share our gratitude to our clients, vendors, hosts, and guests for an absolutely amazing 2019 event season. You are why we love what we do!

Host Memorable Events that Drive Engagement with Your Brand

 We don’t often think about holiday parties as a way to drive engagement with our brand because our priority is to show appreciation for those who are important to our business success. If executed well, though, there are ways to do both. Our team had a wonderful opportunity to work with The Best Me conference last month. To help build excitement the host offered a new spin on the branded “selfie wall.” Best Me Wall1

Use Color, Texture, and Subtle Branding to Evoke Moods for Photo Walls

Event attendees heard from inspiring speakers and a traditional logo wall would have been out of place for the uplifting mood of the summit. Each wall offered a different look and feel to match the inspirational messages attendees received over the course of the event.   BestMe2  

This Interactive Wall is Perfect for Posing

You can combine branding, dynamic design, and attendee involvement for a more personal experience for your guests. The interactive wall above includes inspirational messages written by event attendees. Your guests will feel like the center of attention and that’s a powerful way to share your brand values.

  These next-level selfie walls encouraged interaction and you can tell by the images shared on social media, conference guests were inspired by each unique design.

CAD May Not be Sexy… but it Ensures Comfort and Safety for Your Guests

 And, it can Save Your Bacon if the Fire Marshall Comes Calling

 Computer-aided Design may not be the most exciting service we offer, but events benefit from this service in so many ways.  It’s easy to look at an event space and create a laundry list of wants. You envision all the ways to use the space for your guests – conversation areas, bars, vendor tables, gaming lounges, selfie walls, and networking space. The problem is those floor plans the venue provides don’t typically include maps for traffic flow and egress. And, the Fire Marshall will pay attention to these details, especially if you are in a public space or are serving alcohol. The following images show the CAD design our team produced for the Built By Girls Summit and a photograph of the finished results. You can see there is plenty of room for guests to move around and we were still able to include conversation areas. CAD1 CAD2

 Nov. 16-17 – Newtype Buildcon 2019

Our team had a lot of fun pulling together the Newtype Buildcon event. We handled venue management as well as overall logistics and coordination of the event. It was a fun challenge to create a space appropriate for panels, workshops, speakers, a contest, and a vendor exhibit hall. MVIMG_20191116_123903-1
