How do you design a corporate event that will attract and retain clients? After all, a dinner or cocktail hour are a dime a dozen among the professional services industries. How can you create an event that stands apart; that is memorable?
Begay & Associates, an Ameriprise Private Wealth Advisory Practice based in Houston, asked us to help design and coordinate a dinner & reception to welcome their newest clients to the group. Their theme/concept is "Building a Strong Financial Future Together", focusing on the importance of client relationships and the growth that ensues over time witin the client- advisor relationship.
When working to develop their design concept, the first images or icons that comes to mind when you think of the word "grow" are trees, flowers, foliage. A tree symbolizes strength, growing from the roots upward. So, we designed our invitation and other printable concepts with this in mind.
Chosen location: Brennan's Restaurant downtown.
This Southern restaurant is a stable in our city, known for great food, great ambiance and equally important, it is close to downtown which makes its location convenient for many of this firm's clients.
Menu: Offer 2-3 main course options that would appeal to a variety of guests; men, women and vegetarians.
I am a firm believer that the little details are what guests remember most!
