Swoon Worthy Event Ideas

Unique Event Ideas to Wow Guests at Your Next Special Event

New, fresh, different, unique – that’s what Imprint looks for everyday to ensure our clients and their programs delight and wow attendees. It’s super easy to get caught up in pitching the same ideas over and over.

You won’t catch us pitching “Viva Las Vegas” or “Western” themes in Colorado or Nevada unless asked and even then, we’re going to spend a lot of time thinking about how to elevate those ideas so they feel fresh to the viewer.

So this February, we asked our Creative Solutions team to share what products and ideas they LOVE right now. What are clients responding to? What idea just needs an adventurous client? We LOVE this list and had to share!

 

Experiential Entertainment – Edible Mist!

Imprint Group is the leading planning partner in Destination Management Services (DMC), Special Events, Corporate Events, Teambuilding, Entertainment and Event Production in Colorado, Florida, and Las Vegas. 

These edible mist orbs create an intense cloud of floating inhalable flavor. Using cutting edge ultrasonic vaporizing technology, each machine produces a continuous stream of edible mist from a range of more than 200 flavors, all at ZERO calories!

This is just one example of edible entertainment, but there are so many we love. There are a ton of branding opportunities too – laser branded sandwiches anyone?

 
 

 

Purposeful Photobooths – Calligram!

Imprint Group is the leading planning partner in Destination Management Services (DMC), Special Events, Corporate Events, Teambuilding, Entertainment and Event Production in Colorado, Florida, and Las Vegas. Every event has a photobooth, so how can yours stand out? The Calligram provides your picture using key words and phrases that are either important to you, or to the organization/brand that’s hosting the event.

It’s an awesome take away that marks the event but delivers a message too.

 
 
 
 

 
 

 
 

Modern Day Mood Rings – Brain Art!

Imprint Group is the leading planning partner in Destination Management Services (DMC), Special Events, Corporate Events, Teambuilding, Entertainment and Event Production in Colorado, Florida, and Las Vegas.  For something more artistic and abstract, book Brain Art! Each guest participates in a “brainstorming” session where they put on a brain helmet, which reads their brain waves.

A piece of artwork is then generated based on what waves were sent and the technician can read your mood based on the colors, flow and strength of the piece printed.

The technician can explain what the colors and shapes mean, guests will be comparing moods all night long!
 
 

 

Recycled Décor – Laser Cut Centerpieces!

Imprint Group is the leading planning partner in Destination Management Services (DMC), Special Events, Corporate Events, Teambuilding, Entertainment and Event Production in Colorado, Florida, and Las Vegas. We are in love with these cardboard laser cut centerpieces of different types of dogs for a pet friendly event we have coming up in April.

We can produce a variety of animals (or other ideas) in a range of sizes. Imagine affordable art at the center of everyone’s table – amazing!

 
 
 
 

 

 

Wandering Doesn’t Mean You’re Lost – Maps & Travel!

Imprint Group is the leading planning partner in Destination Management Services (DMC), Special Events, Corporate Events, Teambuilding, Entertainment and Event Production in Colorado, Florida, and Las Vegas. The Wanderlust feel and vibe is one of our favorite themes to pitch right now. Interactive entertainment ideas abound when travel is a part of your event.

Whether you want to show a virtual simulation of where everyone has traveled from; highlight destinations using 3D mapping on an actual map; or give away 3D printed locations or detailed maps turned into abstract prints, there are so many touches to help bring this theme to life.

 
 

 
 

 

Smaller, Intimate Adventures – Sidecar Tours!

Imprint Group is the leading planning partner in Destination Management Services (DMC), Special Events, Corporate Events, Teambuilding, Entertainment and Event Production in Colorado, Florida, and Las Vegas. For smaller groups visiting Colorado, try a sidecar motorcycle tour of the mountains.  Groups of 10 can explore the Rocky Mountains with their own “Sidecarist” or Chauffeaur whose helpful information is being shared through a helmet with Bluetooth communication systems that allow for a continuous, crystal clear conversation throughout the experience.

Imprint Group Receives 2018 Special Event Award

Imprint Group Given Special Event Award for Incredible Event Production

Denver DMC, Colorado DMC, Colorado Corporate Event Production and Live Entertainment for Corporate Events Imprint Group Denver Florida Las Vegas Live Bands Interactive Entertainment Best Corporate EntertainmentLast week, a small company headquartered in Denver received the award for “Best Theatrical Entertainment Production” in the world at the 2018 Special Event Gala in New Orleans last week.

The team at Imprint Group couldn’t be prouder or more humbled by this honor for our work creating a custom Hamilton inspired show for the 2017 Beaux Arts Ball and our client, National Jewish Health.

The Special Event Gala represents the oldest and most prestigious awards ceremony in the events industry and recognizes the industry’s best work worldwide. This year, Special Events magazine received more than 400 nominations from eleven countries.

For the 8th consecutive year, National Jewish Health called on Imprint to produce the entertainment for their annual fundraising Gala. They wanted to parlay the popularity of Broadway’s hit musical, HAMILTON, and create an experience that would excite and attract patrons by bringing this cultural phenomenon to life in Denver.

The result was the “Freedom Ball,” a celebration of America’s independent spirit and resolve demonstrated through the entertainment by a series of vignettes that mashed up iconic numbers from the musical and modern songs that connected to the theme.

Check out the incredible recap video that takes you from the choreography and blocking to the event itself by clicking HERE.  Interested in pictures from the Special Event Gala – find them HERE.

The Beaux Arts Ball burst with the youthful and revolutionary energy focusing on America’s path to freedom.  We wanted the audience to discover this game-changing musical while experiencing the relevant contemporary hits that had everyone raising a glass to freedom!

We are so grateful to National Jewish Health and all of our clients who give us the opportunity to do our best work every day; and we couldn’t be more thankful to have such an incredible team giving their best to Imprint each day.
