Business Holiday Planning: Give Clients and Employees the Gift of a Lavish Off-site
CHICAGO, IL — As business professionals, it’s at the back of our minds to start reconciling our ledgers by the end of the year. The annual city-wide sprouting of smirking Jack-O-Lanterns that sit outside our neighborhood stores seems to stand watch over the candy corn, shrieking cat cut-outs, Christmas lights and the silver and gold tinsel that await inside. The holidays are coming, so that means we have extra mouths to feed: employees, clients and partners. Luckily, holiday-associated headaches and stress can be outsourced. Thanks, OFFSITE.
Chicago Holiday Hustle
On Wednesday, September 14, holiday stress met its match. Chicago- and New York City-based upscale event space providers OFFSITE hosted about 100 event planners and vendors, marketers, as well as non-profit professionals for the Chicago Holiday Hustle — a swanky holiday-themed soiree; positioning themselves as a premium go-to for businesses planning holiday events.
Located at 560 W Washington Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60661, OFFSITE provided attendees with a robust selection of snackable items complete with gourmet fixings and an upscale twist: glazed bacon strips, sushi encased in edible rice paper, as well as French macaroons with fruit preserve-filled plastic slivers that attendees could infuse their own treats.
OFFSITE over-delivered when it comes to experiential marketing.
Upping the ante in delivering a touch of class, event sponsor and jazz trio Life Rhythms — founded in 2013 by music director and professionally-trained performance and world percussion musician Noah Plotkin — performed classic and contemporary tunes as attendees networked.
Life Rhythms’ has carved a niche for themselves by facilitating health and wellness in diverse populations through the power of rhythmic music, with designed programs that express the creative spirit, vent stress and re-establish a healthy and beneficial life rhythm.
OFFSITE Chicago Director Madeleine Yastrow and her equally attentive staff mingled with attendees while leading on-the-spot tours of the upscale 4,000 square-foot facility, which was largely adorned with holiday-themed floral art by Lisa Paul of Color & Company. As a parting swag gift, attendees left with a trial-sized can of event sponsor PRESS wrinkle eliminator.
