Make Time for Tales
Tales of the Cocktail is right around the corner, occurring July 23rd-28th in New Orleans. And in honor of this renowned industry conference… Let’s talk liquor ~ everyone’s favorite, mouthwatering refreshment. A common source of connection for so many – alcohol goes far beyond the memories of our wasted youth.
Events of this nature in New Orleans are where our team gets to really shine because you will be hard pressed to find an event production team that knows the city of New Orleans – every crack and crevice – better than us. We also just so happen to be extremely passionate about alcohol, both personally and professionally; we value the nuances and differentiators between the various spirits. And because there are so many brands that will be looking to activate throughout the city, partnering with a local team that knows how to navigate the ins and outs – where best to match your brand to the activation space; be it a bar or restaurant or hotel lobby or storefront takeover.
Give us your brand guidelines, goals, and a few parameters + a workable budget; and we will produce a legendary experience that aims to be on the top 5 list of events that everyone is talking about. No small feat for a conference that is bursting with brand activations. But our secret weapon is our deep knowledge of the city and our ability to put that knowledge to great use on behalf of our clients in order to design an event that is genuine to both the brand and to New Orleans. What follows below are a few examples of activations we have created in the past; each intended to accentuate the difference in event design and experience based on the particular brand.
LVMH’s Chateau D’Esclans Rose Pairing
The folks at LVMH Rose brand, Chateau D’Esclans, contacted us to arrange a private wine pairing experience in Uptown New Orleans, for select high net worth clients. The event was a fantastic success with unique bites prepared by a team of former Emeril’s staff and hosted by the Chateau D’Esclans master Somm.
Powers Whiskey at Collision Conference
Powers Whiskey engaged our team to assist in a VIP event they were sponsoring in conjunction with the Collision Conference. What better spot to host a Whiskey event than a local, well known Whiskey bar that is steps away from the New Orleans convention center where the conference was held? Our team sourced the talent, the caterer, as well as the location and all the rentals – plus security staff for the line that inevitably wound around the block.
The Jack Daniel’s House Invitation Only Event
The Jack Daniel’s House was brimming with localized experiences – this was such a fun activation to work on. In addition to our typical event production role, we also provided guerrilla marketing support which resulted in our team being one of the top 2 local teams to drive the most foot traffic and registrations to the invitation only event. One of our favorite Mardi Gras subkrewes, the Krewe of King James, were featured prominently at the event – nobody brings the party like a little James Brown.
