Exploratorium Opening Gala

Location: San Francisco

Service: Event Management

Guests: 1600

Client's Need:

The Exploratorium built a $300 million dollar facility on Pier 15 and needed an opening Gala and Fundraising Event. They needed this event to be unlike any San Francisco had seen. The donor and socialite attendees go to numerous events so this one needed to be special and unique. This needed to be an incredible event that showcases the Exploratorium and exhibits.

Our Solution:

The facility was large, but it was important for us to create intimate areas for the attendees. We brought together the top 27 interior designers in San Francisco and gave each of them a lounge that they would theme and furnish. California Host designed three different entertainment areas and brought “The Earth Harp” to San Francisco for the first time. We attached the strings of the harp 100 feet up to the ceiling so as the harpist played it resonated through the structure. Another room featured Capital Cities performing and the last room had local favorites Tainted Love. This was a progressive party that moved throughout the venue to have many reveals.
 

The Outcome:

The event was a huge success. The lounges created the perfect atmosphere for friends to be able to relax and hold conversations. The entertainment was spot on. The Exploratorium raised more money than anticipated. The VIP guests left the event saying “I can't wait to see what they do next year.”

Emirates Road Show

Location: Fairmont Hotel, San Jose

Service: Event Management

Guests: 650

Client's Need:

To bring 650 of the top travel agents to an event to introduce Emirates, Dubai and the new service from SFO to Dubai. The hotel, food, entertainment and décor needed to showcase the high level Emirates operates at and the attention to detail they are known for. The guests needed to experience Emirates without leaving the ground.

Our Solution:

We partnered with The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose to produce this event. We designed the stage scenic and décor to match their brand. The client selected Bill Rancic & California Host to create menus with Emirates Executive Chefs and the Fairmont to give the guests a true taste of the experience. There were over 140 different food items at this event. The band SRO performed while the group danced. 
 

The Outcome:

Through a strategically planned invite/RSVP process, we had all but 4 guests attend that had confirmed. The hotel was perfect and the branding highlighted the rooms. The stage scene was epic and the production was flawless. Guests were blown away by the huge variety of food selections at one event. Everyone at the event received the Emirates experience and left excited about the opportunity to book flights on Emirates. We have since produced 12 events for Emirates Airline.

Client’s Need:

For a second year in a row Disney/Pixar has hired California Host to create a presence for their companies at every Raiders home game and to promote the most recent Pixar film. We provide ideas for décor, entertainment for the children, and the overall layout/look for each game.

Google

Location: Foundation Room, Las Vegas, NV

Service: Event Management

Guests: 200

Client’s Need: 

To host an International group for an event after a conference. They needed to draw guests away from other established events. Convey the culture of the company through this event. Make sure it is cutting edge, professional and matches the younger attendees they seek.

Our Solution: 

California Host selected The Foundation Room atop Mandalay Bay and created different themes in each of the rooms. We used minimal branding except for custom visual shows in the rooms. We came up with four different drinks that played off of “Google” and their messaging for this event to appeal to these guests.
 

The Outcome: 

While the design was pretty wild, it was done professionally and was sleek. The attendance was above what the client was hoping for. Guests stayed an average of 3.5 hours at this corporate event. Normally guests go from one party to the next party. The client was very pleased that she could count on California Host in all the locations she had programs.

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.
