Imprint Group: Your Preferred Event Planning Partner is Growing!

We are thrilled to welcome Valeri Mallo as she joins the Imprint team this month as our new Operations Manager in the Denver Office. Valeri is joining us after serving five years as an Event Producer for Global Gourmet Catering and Events in San Francisco, managing social and corporate accounts. In that time, she managed the operations of the company’s services at the Greek Theater (Berkeley). In addition to her professional experience in the industry, Valeri was a professional dancer in New York City for years. We are thrilled about her addition to our special events team and all that she will bring.

We are so proud of Stacey Engelmann, our Associate Director in our Orlando office, who received her CMP this month! This meeting professional certification recognizes global excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition, and event industry, with qualifications based on professional experience, education, and a thorough exam. Congrats Stacey, thank you for your dedication to this industry!

With our recent growth and several exciting changes in recent months, Imprint Group has also restructured our own team and departments. Heather Van Benschoten, previously Senior Creative Solutions Manager, is our new Director of Accounts in Destination Services.

In addition, Adriane Hodder, former Director of Creative Solutions, will now serve as VP of Account Management, overseeing all offices.

A New Take on a Colorado Theme

Use Colorful Colorad as the Theme for Your Next Special Event!

It’s no surprise that groups coming to Colorado for meetings and events want to capitalize on what’s special about our state. We get a lot of requests for events that feature the mountains or harken back to our western heritage.  While we love those themes that are fun and familiar, making them our own and leaving our Imprint, is what we work do to everyday.

As Colorado’s premier Destination Management Company, we know the most innovative ways to take the tried and true Colorado event theme to new heights.

Just recently, we produced a fun, new take on the traditional “Colorado” theme.  If you’ve lived here long or visit regularly, you know the only thing consistent about the weather is that it’s CHANGING. So we provided a seasonal tour of Colorado for our client and their 3,500 attendees at Mile High Stadium, home of the Denver Broncos Football Club.

Utilizing both the East and West club levels, we turned each (and the north concourse) into a unique seasonal experience. We loved the transition from season to season and throughout the planning process kept thinking of more fun ways we could make the experience all the more exciting.

Start your event in “Fall” with a tailgating theme (go Broncos!). Consider laid-back tailgate style seating and decor, football themed games, cornhole, Broncos player appearances and a live Bluegrass-style band that makes you feel like you’re at Colorado’s Blues & Brews Fest. Or better yet, elevate the scenic décor and provide more seating with real pickup truck beds and give guests a true sense of tailgating before a fall sports game.

Transition to Winter with a light snow fall from season to season – we really did make it SNOW!  Include a pop-up ice rink, a snow cone station, a skiing simulator and our one-of-a-kind whiskey wheel with an attendant dressed for the winter. Transform the space further with market lighting and white, lighted transformits, snow machines, a snowglobe photobooth, an ice bar, simulated snowmobile racing and the perfect live and WOW entertainment – the Flying Aces, a trampoline show featuring Olympic athletes!

End the event amid a burst of color and music in Spring, followed by Summer. This is the perfect season for a Camper photo booth, flower walls, walking vines and farmer’s market inspired decor. Get people active with Virtual Reality kayaking or mountain biking; inflatable mountain climbing or dancing with Silent Disco.
