Planning a company’s entire week of activities when they visit Boston for a conference can be a daunting task, but Corinthian Events is always up for the challenge! Recently we gave a group visiting Boston from all over the country and world the full Beantown experience.
Throughout the week guests enjoyed private tours of our city’s highlights! From the scenic waterfront to the rich history of the Back Bay to famous Fenway Park they took in the sites of one of America’s oldest cities (and our favorite).
To top off the week, guests attended a gala dinner at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum; an I.M Pei designed building that serves as a vibrant tribute to the life and times of the 35th President of the United States. Guests were escorted by a troop of motorcycle equipped state police to Colombia Point (what an entrance!) and greeted by a solo bagpiper playing tunes adjacent to a red carpet entrance. After arriving they viewed a film on JFK’s life then explored the museum which follows the 1960 campaign travel and his formative White House years.
Upon exiting the exhibits, guests were met in the Pavilion with cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres, and an amazing view! You really can’t beat an 80-foot glass wall that looks out over the harbor at the stunning Boston Skyline!
After cocktail hour guests moved upstairs to Smith Hall for an elegant three course dinner and another amazing view of Boston. Rich linens and elegant seasonal floral arrangements gave the room a regal look and echoed the evenings presidential feel. The finale to the night was a performance by the famous Harvard Krokodiloes. Harvard University’s oldest and most prestigious a cappella singing group, the “Kroks”, were a big hit and even receiving a standing ovation from all the attendees. Of course, that meant for the ultimate finale, an encore!
We know that guests will not soon forget this truly presidential evening!
