Total Meeting Management: Every Interaction is Key

April 28th, 2016


Meeting adjourned, the conference is over and guests are heading home. What do they remember from the event?

We recently had the pleasure of working with The New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center Boston Children’s Hospital to help plan, manage and execute their conference; Turning Science into Care, which was held at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square along with the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children’s Hospital.

As meeting management professionals in Boston, we understand the logistics involved in coordinating a conference to go off without a hitch. We created a 10-month work back schedule detailing all items and pertinent dates to ensure no detail was slighted!

Managing details are key to a successful event. Your guests first interaction with your brand may be your invitation and ticketing website. A custom branded registration site (white label site) that is intelligently built guides your guests through the sign-up process, stays in communication with them leading up to the event with updates, and organizes relevant data regarding their needs so you can be prepared!

Check out some examples of the registration pages we build custom for this conference. Looking for help planning your next meeting or conference? Call Corinthian Events today!

The Park Plaza Castle: Transforming a Historic Landmark

April 26th, 2016

Raw space can be daunting but with vision and experience, the transformation can be breathtaking.

Walking into The Castle at Park Plaza, an expansive (14,642 square feet)  National Historic Landmark, is impressive. The space is versatile, able to mold for the event from a conference, trade show, or gala.

Recently we had the pleasure of transforming The Castle for Benchmark, a leader in senior living services.  Their annual Employee Appreciation Gala was attended by 320 guests. To facilitate the evening’s events, we partitioned the space to accommodate both reception and seated dinner.

An ode to classic Boston with passed hors d’oeuvres including lobster rolls. (Pronounced “Lob-stah” of course!)

Design direction was key for this Castle Boston event to create the ambiance. From linens to floral, lighting and rentals, no detail was overlooked!

Tips From the Team: Becoming a Transportation Guru

April 21st, 2016

Need tips on how to plan for transportation for an event? Check out all these tips from Corinthian Event’s very own Transportation Guru, Jamie!

“As a Senior Account Manager at Corinthian Events, I have moved many attendees from Point A to Point B, sometimes utilizing multiple different transportation companies at once, but transportation is so much more. It’s really all about the logistics, and I am ALL about logistics!

Here’s some advice for becoming a transportation guru:

  • Most importantly, hire the right partner – AKA the vendor who will get the job done (and right!)
  • Make sure to plan your route out ahead of time – you never know when street closures are going to pop up!
  • Hire Police Detail or Police Escorts when necessary – sometimes just to escort you through rush hour
  • Comply with city regulations – you don’t want to get kicked off a curb in the middle of loading a vehicle!
  • Pre-count the number of seats on your bus – you never want to start off your event by overloading a bus and asking guests to get off
  • Know your local airport regulations – at Logan International Airport, buses can’t fit at some of the terminals on the arrival level, so you’ll have to escort guests to the departure level to load the bus. Not knowing this will lead to motor coaches having to deflate their tires to get “unstuck” (not speaking from experience, but I know it has happened in the past!)

Whether it be airport arrivals or moving 1,000 guests to a venue, having the right person (or people) on the curb can make or break your event.  And keep in mind – an event starts as soon as the guests arrive in your city. Make their experience as smooth as possible!”

We hope these tips get your next event movin’!

Jammin’ with CE

April 18th, 2016

Everyone knows that creativity and originality are two major staples that make a Corinthian Events event successful. What you may not have known is that our team keeps the creativity flowing outside of work as well!

Two of our team members, Ben and Matthew, belong to prominent Boston rock bands, and the bands played a show together at the Foundation Room at House of Blues just last week!

The sold out show had hundreds in attendance and was the album release show for Matthew’s band, Wonder City. Both bands, Wonder City and The Functionals, powered through riveting sets of rock n’ roll, classic covers, and indie rock. With some additional Corinthian team members in attendance, it was one of the best nights of local music the House of Blues has seen this year.

Be sure to catch Wonder City and The Functionals this summer at various venues throughout New England!
