When VMware’s Cloud Solutions team approached us to help them plan a private party during their 2018 VMworld conference, we knew it was going to be a fun and interesting project.
Tasked with finding a venue inside Mandalay Bay Resort that was both unique and comfortable for 350 people, we decided on Foundation Room for its intimate decor and breathtaking outdoor vista.
The venue is located 63 floors high and gives you an exhilarating view of the Las Vegas Strip. We knew our client would love the space.
Managing and staffing the event
To promote the client’s brand, we strategically setup TV monitors throughout the space to showcase VMware’s Cloud Solutions products. We also provided VMware branded hats, T-shirts and other small items to promote the brand.
Inside the lounge and on the terrace were premium open bars. Guests relaxed on comfortable tufted leather couches and took in the view of the Strip. The same plush seating was also offered inside. The casual setting promoted socializing between the guests.
To enhance the experience, a sushi chef created delectable bites on request. Atmosphere models and other staff also served up warm and cold hors d’oeuvres.
Stupak not only planned the event, we assisted with venue setup, door management and crowd flow. We managed the guest list, distributed wristbands and photographed the event to document the experience.
It was a pleasure to help our client, and we look forward to next year with the potential for even greater responsibilities.
