Event Management

Novo

Location: Anaheim, CA

Service: Event Management

Guests: 350

Client's Need:

To host a large scale event for attendees of an industry conference. To out-due their competitors that have been hosting an event on this night for many years. Create buzz for the event so the attendees chose this event.  To showcase four distinct areas of education through fun, play and information.

Our Solution:

California Host selected the parking lot of the Marriott Hotel to transform the space into a “Beach to Boardwalk” theme. We worked with the ad agency to design areas that were educational and exciting. California Host fabricated buildings and structures that were branded to fit each of these areas. We brought in real midway trailers and games and prepared healthy fare that one would find at the different Boardwalks around the country. The band flew down from San Francisco and the place was jumping.
 

The Outcome:

The client met their attendee numbers. Guests were entertained for hours. All the guests visited the four educational areas and enjoyed the variety of food options. Everyone was blown away.

State Fund

Location: Hilton Hotel. Anaheim, CA

Guests: 600

Client's Need:

State Fund needed to bring their leadership Team together, for the first time, in order to refine their goals and create a more cohesive team.  They needed the program to be economical for them and the attendees. Furthermore, State Fund was also introducing a new CEO to the group.

We designed the general session to be interactive and repurposed the room for the Gala Event. At the Gala Event we brought in Illusionist Patrick Martin, who customized his show to incorporate the new CEO and theme of the conference. Every event and break was focused on developing the messages from State Fund in a comfortable environment.
 

The Outcome:

Despite this being their first group gathering, everyone left the conference motivated and ready to put their new plan into action. The Leadership team was focused, cohesive, stayed within budget, and established connections with fellow members state-wide. These factors, along with many others, are what made the conference such a huge success and has resulted in California Host being named the proprietor for the next conference to be held in San Francisco.

Client's Need:

The client needed to unveil the new line of SRT (Street and Racing Technology) cars at the L.A. Autoshow. They wanted an event close to Staples Center so it was an easy walk for the guests. It was important to Chrysler that their SRT brand was understood by the attendees.

To create the right ambience we enlisted a famous female DJ that spun mellow grooves until the party ended.

ABC²

Location: St Regis, Monarch Bay, CA

Service: Destination Management

Guests: 60

Client's Need:

Bring together the best scientists, doctors and investors in an intimate setting to help facilitate the success of the project. Create opportunities to network outside of the meeting.

Our Solution:

Steve Case, former AOL CEO, had clearly defined the outcomes he desired from this meeting. We searched for a luxury hotel that felt secluded but was close to LAX as International guests would be attending. Making it convenient for the attendee was important as they are in demand and volunteering their time. We selected the St. Regis Monarch Bay and the property was perfect for the group. We created opportunities for the attendees to spend time together when the meetings were over.  One evening we brought in Alex Filippenko, a world-renowned research astrophysicist who helped discover the accelerating expansion of the Universe, which won the Nobel Prize.
 

The Outcome:

Steve Case was thrilled with the attendance, content, and the environment we created to promote the sharing of ideas and experience.  Since this meeting, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure has provided more than $20 million in research funding to highly qualified research investigators and physician-scientists from 42 institutions.
