Events

Event strategy, planning and execution, at your service

Overview

As an integrated agency, we are a one-stop shop for event strategy, planning and execution needs. But what really makes us different is that we help our clients determine how every event, no matter how big or small, fits into their larger brand awareness strategy and overall business strategy. We are an award-winning team of ideators and logistics experts drawn to a challenge. An event doesn’t end when the last person leaves. It’s the launchpad for building relationships with your target audiences.

What We Do

Event Concepting

Our master team of brainstormers will imagine and reimagine an event theme and format to inspire your guest experience

Production Design

Leveraging our creative team, we design detail-rich, interactive guest experiences. We design and build backdrops, stages, trade booth exhibits and all types of event collateral.

Touchpoint Planning

Our measure of a successful event is watching our clients enjoy an airtight, stress-free experience. We coordinate custom registration processes, delivery logistics, vendor arrivals, volunteer training, breakdown and guest follow-up.

Vendor Management

We enjoy longstanding relationships with the best event partners in the country. We collaborate to research, bid and onboard vendors who deliver the highest quality products and services.

Timeline Management

We love a good GANTT chart. Events and their many moving parts live or die by milestone planning, so we ensure every consideration has a time and place.

Audience Engagement

We establish relational objectives, review target audiences and create a detailed plan to connect with those audiences with various touchpoints before, during and after your event.
