We were first approached by Broadcast Depot in 2014 to help plan an event celebrating the close of the annual National Association of Broadcasters convention. Broadcast Depot is a part of a group of companies that make up the Broadcasting Alliance, and it is responsible to host the after-party for NAB. It’s an opportunity to treat their customers and employees as well as celebrate their time in Las Vegas.
The experience in 2014 & 2015
In 2014 and 2015, it was extremely important to our clients to have an indoor/outdoor venue with a view of the Las Vegas Strip for this event.
As a result, both functions were hosted at the Ghostbar lounge at Palms Casino Resort. The event was scheduled from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. with a partial buyout of the venue. The client opted for bottle service instead of open bar, because the former created a more upscale vibe with bottle presentations and servers on-hand. We also hired promotional models to help with branding and marketing as well as to interact with guests at the party.
The experience in 2016 & 2017
Keeping in line with the outdoor Strip views, we hosted the events on the terrace at Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop at Paris Las Vegas in 2016 and 2017.
The event was entirely outdoors. Guests enjoyed beautiful views of the Las Vegas Strip and the Fountains of Bellagio.
Since our clients hosted more people in 2016 and 2017, we secured a buyout of half of the venue to accommodate more than 200 people. We again opted for bottle service and hired promotional models to help with branding and interacting with guests.
The experience in 2018
This year, we moved the event to one of the most popular lounges in downtown Las Vegas—Commonwealth. This pre-Prohibition era cocktail bar has an amazing interior with a rooftop terrace overlooking the historic Fremont Street.
This was the best after-party to date. Once again, most of the attendees were affluent businessmen from Latin America. In order to paint our clients in a good light and really impress their guests, we did a full venue buyout. With the entire space reserved, we hired a DJ to play Latin music, coordinated a four-hour open bar, and elegantly displayed the food and beverage options. Since the attendee list increased this year as well, we opted for an open bar for a better value.
Like the previous events, Stupak members were onsite managing the guest list at the doors, controlling the flow of traffic and assisting as necessary. We also hired bartenders, servers and promotional models to ensure the event was properly staffed.
Broadcasting Alliance’s 2018 NAB after-party was so successful our clients, who adored the venue, extended the night by an additional hour. They are excited to book Commonwealth in 2019, and we can’t wait to raise the bar once again!
