New Year, New Resolution

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

Happy New Year everyone! It’s that wonderful time of the year when we all take a good, hard look at ourselves in the mirror and think, “what is my New Years resolution going to be?” …and then forget we ever made one 2 weeks later.

But here at Corinthian Events, we’re DETERMINED to keep our team resolution this year: to be smarter than our smart phones! And just how do we plan to do this? Easily, especially with help from these five great websites that PCMA inspired us to look at.

Mental Floss is a great website to go to for everything. From articles on trending topics to educational quizzes, this website is like the Pandora’s box of knowledge.

Ted Talks is perfect for when you don’t feel like reading a five-page article on a topic. You can choose from a list of thousands of videos to listen to or watch while you’re at home, taking a break at work, or commuting home.

Ever thought about learning a new language? Look no further than BBC Languages, where there are free tutorials on how to learn over 40 different languages!

For a more philosophical approach to reading, check out Brain Pickings. This could be a great way to start the morning off!

Brain Pump is another website that offers videos rather than articles. You can choose from various categories (including Psychology, Space, Game Design, and Nature) and watch all the videos they have to offer on the topic.

Although we’ll probably be looking at these websites from our smartphones, we can’t wait to see the wealth of knowledge we’ll have by 2017!

Attention!

Corinthian Events DMC Staff for Dine Around

Over 30 Corinthian Events staff stood at attention holding signs and waiting for approximately 250 guests to depart the Intercontinental Hotel.  28 Sprinter Vans were carefully staged adjacent to the hotel to whisk guests away to the top restaurants in Boston.  Together with one of our preferred transportation partners and the best logistics team around, we made this look easy.

Working as an extension of our client’s planning team we considered each and every detail; time of day, curb space at the hotel, vehicle staging space, traffic patterns, walking patterns, signage, and even more. Our transportation and guests left the Intercontinental Hotel like an elegantly choreographed ballet.

Creating events with amazing décor and entertainment poses its challenges for sure, but moving this many people through Boston without a hitch was quite a feat!

A big thank you to our partners at the Intercontinental Hotel, LTI, Boston Police and our amazing team for a successful evening for all.

Missed Us?

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

It’s safe to say that the week of June 15th was the busiest one we’ve seen in awhile!  You may have noticed (or at least assumed from the multiple “out of office” emails) that a majority of the CE team spent last week on site.  Large programs in Boston, Cambridge and Newport had our team working around the clock to ensure a flawless execution and great guest experience.

We can’t take all the credit though… We’d like to give a big shout out to all of the amazing staff that assisted us throughout the week, many of whom are close friends and family members of CE! Our hard working Harvard day staff are featured in the picture above and they are only a portion of the small army who helped us to get through the week.

As we continue to get back into the swing of things, we’ll be sure to update you on all of our June happenings.  Keep an eye out for some event recaps in the coming weeks!

Corinthian Events Celebrates 15 Years!

CE Turns 15 Partners

Founded in March of 2000, Corinthian Events has been planning memorable events in Boston and New England for 15 years.  Of course, in true CE fashion, we had to celebrate!

Last weekend friends, family and the CE team headed down to the Hotel Viking in Newport, RI for an epic bash hosted by Courtney, Jill and Mary.  Decked out in our finest duds, we danced, toasted and reminisced!

Following dinner, we ushered the whole party into another room for a champagne toast and a surprise! Courtney, Jill and Mary had no idea that the CE team had been working with friends, family, vendors and clients to put together a 15th anniversary video.  There were plenty of laughs (and tears!) as people from CE’s past and present expressed their congratulations.

After a touching tribute, it was back to the ballroom for more dancing and fun in the photo booth.  With such a fun team, it’s a wonder we get any work done!
