Howdy y’all! Welcome to the wild, wild west.

When your client comes to you with an idea for a saloon themed party, you need to go all out. From mechanical bulls to whiskey tastings, we knew we had to create just the right balance of class and sass!

The evening began with the sounds of a live blue-grass duo and the visual backdrop of a classic black & white American Western movie projected in an adjourning atrium to further set the scene. Guests were offered cowboy hats and bandanas to complete their ensembles.

The first stop of the night? An antique photo booth filled with old world props and classic western attire to transform into character and capture all the western vibes in a sepia tinted photo to take home with them. The booth offered a quick-change option with all pieces to set the mood including women’s fringe dresses, boas, feathered headpieces, bowler & cowboy hats, vests, and cowboy boots.

If guests found themselves in need of refreshment they could sidle over to the custom saloon bar and place an order with the barkeep. Outfitted with rope, beer growlers, and a “Happy Trails” sign, the 12-foot bar was a centerpiece of the design.

Whiskey lovers were in for an additional treat with a whiskey tasting led by a bona-fide expert. Guests enjoyed sampling and learning about 6 different types of whiskey throughout the evening. The western look was completed with an antique wagon and whiskey barrel high-top tables.

The energetic crowd took respite in this perfectly western comfy soft seating arrangement which included real cowhide rugs and classic chesterfield style leather couches adorned with faux fur pillows and blankets.

As the guests mingled throughout the event, there was a multitude of experiences for everyone to enjoy including stylized versions of casino games such as darts, roulette, black jack, and pool.

Cowboys and girls took part in a professional line dancing class while ambitious guests took turns on the mechanical bull… this group was not afraid to let their inner western side show!

Meet & Greet: Arrivals at Logan

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

First impressions are everything when your guests touch ground.

Whether you have 10 or 500 guests, finding the right vendor to partner with for your meet and greet services is crucial to the success of any program. Your guests’ arrival at the airport is their first impression of what the program will entail and we strive to make sure it’s a memorable welcome.

Chauffeurs can’t leave their vehicles at Logan International Airport, therefore additional team members are utilized to ensure a smooth transition for arrivals. Our meet and greet service includes a professionally attired and knowledgeable greeter, ready at baggage claim, holding a sign with either your company logo or their name; whichever is more appropriate for your group. In addition, guests are given our phone number so they have direct communication with us should they have trouble finding their greeter.

For clients, we make airport transportation look like a breeze.  We take the guests flight details, both arrivals and departures, and we break them out into a cohesive manifest.  We group guests together where possible to save on overall costs, always making sure no guest is stuck waiting.  If a flight is early or delayed, we can quickly adjust vehicles accordingly.

Logan International Airport is conveniently located in East Boston, just a short transfer to downtown Boston.  So no matter where their destination may be located in Boston a quick transfer from the airport is always obtainable.

With our vast knowledge of the city we know when we need permits, police details, etc. which makes the arrival and departure process on the curb a smooth experience for all!

Dining Around

What do you call whisking 200 people to 11 restaurants using 15 vehicles and 18 staff within 15 minutes? Some may call it impossible- we call it a Dine-Around!

Planning a dine-around can be fun for those on our team who have a knack for logistics, details and solving puzzles. The process involves a lot of back and forth; confirming details, using intuition and experience to make restaurant recommendations, menu & wine selections, transportation suggestions and negotiate timing between the parties involved.

We have great restaurant relations, amazing transportation logistics and our team really enjoys them: We are Boston’s dine-around experts!

The Wisdom of Morning Huddle

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Every week we have morning huddles led by a different team member to inspire us and welcome us to each new day. Monday’s bit of wisdom was shared by Dawn Mogardo, Account Manager at Corinthian Events. She shared the quote, “Either you run the day, or the day runs you!”

This quote was especially fitting because while it is a lot of fun to come back and see the team after a long Holiday weekend – being away from email for 4 whole days (well, mostly away from it) – can cause a bit of a backlog. And, getting organized for a new week can be daunting when we are playing catch-up.

What is our go to tip at Corinthian Events for getting organized?

Dawn shares – “LISTS!! I have a to do list on my desktop that I am constantly updating throughout the day to make sure I am on top of everything. Especially in events where there are so many details, it is sometimes a challenge to keep track of every small thing you need to take care of, so I make sure to write them down and I don’t take them off my list until they are done.”

Dawn isn’t alone in this…  Natalie Prentiss, Outreach & Marketing Coordinator at Corinthian Events agrees adding, “I make a list of everything I need to get done for the week. I organize my list by putting the most time sensitive projects at the top and always keeping great notes of my progress to ensure I don’t waste a moment finding my place.”

Shira Brandt, Program Assistant also uses lists sharing, “I make a to do list and take a step back to think about everything that needs to get done, prioritizing is really key and allowing myself to stay calm during it all – knowing that I will get it all finished helps me from letting the quantity of tasks impact that quality of my work.”

Talk about taking it up a notch – Erin Phinney, Account Manager, shares that she uses color coded lists, numerical lists, calendars, lists for my lists… “It’s the only way to keep things in check when life gets busy!”

Staying ahead can be a challenge in our fast-paced industry. Today’s wisdom?.. Use lists!
