Making your event special can range from dramatic draping, spectacular lighting systems, to a signature drink and fantastic entertainment. The challenge is to “wow” the guests as soon as they arrive, then continue to dazzle them throughout the event. With some creativity and imagination, your event can be memorable, and one that people will look forward to next time! Here are some examples of how some organizations in the Hartford area impressed their guests.
Create an Upscale Space for Upscale Fashion
A plain white space was dressed in New York chic for the Juvenile Diabetes Association’s Catwalk Fashion Show. Using the 2013 color of the year (emerald green) the runway, models and fashions from Saks Avenue were showcased at their finest.
Carry Your Theme throughout the Event
Goodwin College’s sold out “Big Top” Gala had a circus theme complete with the big tent, mid-way, fun lighting, and of course, circus performers!
Use Draping for Dramatic Effect
Basement System’s 2012 Annual Conference Party took on a true lounge feel at the Connecticut Convention Center. Private rooms constructed with draping broke up the large area.
Keep Crowds Engaged with Bigger than Life Entertainment
Infuse your fashion show with entertainment from bigger than life characters. In 2012 Michell’s did just that with an Asian theme for “Near and Far” Aid.
Create a New Atmosphere with Lighting
The lighting system at the University of St. Joseph dinner transformed the gymnasium into a room filled with magic!
Stretch Your Imagination
Multidimensional stretch screens add a whole new design element to stages. Not only do they draw attention, but add a theatrical flair to the room and presentations.
Spruce Up the Gym for Graduation
Even school gymnasiums can be set up for a formal occasions. Wtih the proper draping, lighting, staging and projection, everyone enjoyed Bulkely High School’s 2013 graduation.
Set a Dramatic Stage
A backdrop of draping, lighting and banners gave this panel discussion a whole new lift. It focused the audiences’ attention on the speaker and created a dramatic impression.
Think Out of Box
Infinity Hall recently “broke ground” on their new facility in Hartford. Yes, the building was already built, but inside there was still a gravel floor from which they will construct their new Music Hall. Using a stage, backdrop, lighting and sound spotlighted the action for speakers, entertainment and the actual first shovel throw.
