Phoenix Business Journal “Best Places To Work”

Print

A little rain did not slow us down today while we celebrated the awesome companies honored by the Phoenix Business Journal as “Best Places to Work”. With over 600 attendees at the event, Valley companies that put their employees first with things like: hosted family outings, fabulous anniversary gifts and required sabbaticals were showcased.

The event theme was TEAMWORK and featured Merestone’s Arena Entrance as the backdrop for the stage. As the exclusive production company for the Phoenix Business Journal, we would like to congratulate each company that was honored today!

The 3,000 attendees for the Project Management Institute’s Global Conference were geared up to hit the greens. Merestone constructed a 40ft x 80ft golf course which contained 5 holes. The course was built by Merestone’s Scenic Shop for the client to add “tradeshow fun” to the conference. Merestone is a unique production company in that we have a scenic shop with the mind set of “If you can dream it we can build it!” Thousands of one-of-kind sets, décor and staging items have been custom built by Merestone’s scenic department.

Recently, Merestone traveled to Amsterdam, Netherlands to produce a press event and concert for Imagine Communications. In order to be at the top of our game, here are the FIVE things we consider while traveling abroad.

  1. The Metric System: When designing for new venues and event spaces, having all the details is vital… especially if you need to convert your measurements for the metric system.
  2. Exchange Rate: Whether you are negotiating the price of events in advance or accounting for last minute expenses, knowing the conversion rates for each country’s currency can make or break your budget.
  3. Cultural Work Differences: Working outside of your country there may be cultural differences that come up. In some countries, a coffee break may take as long as there is coffee to drink, while in America we may take a “working break” and keep going with café in hand.
  4. Time Change: Jet-lag is one thing, but making sure all your crew is well rested and have reset their clocks is important.
  5. Cell Phones: The client will be calling, so be sure to upgrade your cell phone and your crew’s cell phones to international plans so that there are open lines of communication.
