Client Hospitality Evening

Client Hospitality Evening

Incentive Gift Event

Merestone Productions created a party for our client’s sales awards. It was essential to create an environment that invited employees to celebrate their wins and we did just that through interactive stations. Employees walked through the space and visited stations to pick up their prizes for all of their achievements for the year. As they did so, they enjoyed food, beverages, music, dance and all sorts of entertainment.

Creative Services produced visual renders to help our client make final decisions on custom designs and pieces. We were able to ensure that their branding was carried out through the experience, leaving an impression on all who participated.

We are glad to report that everyone did indeed feel celebrated!

Addy Awards

Knock twice and say the password. 

This year’s Addy Awards received a unique photo op that made a statement. The Speakeasy flats, complete with two illuminated fixtures and an faux doorway, created an imaginative photo set for guests to pose in front of and enjoy. Several Addy winners took the opportunity to be creative and have fun. Afterall, these winners are some of the sharpest graphic designers, advertisers, and marketers in the Valley.

These stunning pics of the Phoenix Ad Club members and Addy winners were shot by George Tenney and Erica Montgomery. Check out the recap video Tenney also created of the Addy’s:

Focus Awards

Project

Annual awards event need to do justice not only the winners but for the audience as well. Merestone has always believed a successful awards event that keeps everyone in mind, not just the winners. Create a signature setting, add entertainment and keep the speeches short is a formula which our clients appreciate.

Stage

The “circles” stage design was inspired by the theme “Focus Awards” Again, the specialty surface of the discs are a great canvas for lighting. The “white” runway with the welcoming curves steps allows the Awards winners to receive extra “moment on the stage” Usually, the winners are seated close to the stage, we suggested to have them sit towards the back which allows for the production value of signature music to accompany the award winner as her or she walks to the stage.

Entertainment

Live entertainment as the guests entered, during sinner and throughout the awards ceremony give the event a vibrancy. The various musicians joined together for some after-the-awards dancing.

Decor

Nothing is more intimate during an event than the table décor. Tonight classic black and white dressed the tables. Centerpieces of multi orb glass votives with floating oval LED candles. The chiavari chairs gave the table a gold touch which worked with the winners gold lame draped tables with black chiavari chairs.

Arizona Celebration

Project

The Best Show in Public Works unites the best and brightest professionals in the business from around the United States and beyond for four days of extensive educational programming, workshops, and an expo trade show. Merestone was thrilled to assist with the 1,800 person welcome reception. Guests were immersed in all the culture that Arizona has to offer. The festivities took place at the Phoenix Convention Center where guests were surrounded by Native American, Western and Mexican environments. Entertainment for the event was equally culturally diverse and stimulating with Native American hoop dancers, Mexican Mariachis, Mexican traditional dancers, Western Can-Can and swing dancers.

Our clients eloquently summed up the event with these comments: “It really gave our international and American visitors an unexpected taste of our AZ culture, and we heard nothing but compliments and surprise at how great (and unique) it was. I had someone actually tell me that she had been to the last 26 APWA Congresses and our party was the best one she had been to! I also heard that from one of our retired APWA AZ Chapter members here. I think we nailed it!”
