Group-Event-ManagementWhat could you do with an additional 150 hours of staff labor for your next event?

  • Could you put that into finding new sponsors, selling tickets, finding wonderful gifts for auctions or just working on your day to day tasks?
  • How many hours are lost with your staff in producing your event?  Would you like to be a “host” at your event rather than a “gopher”?

At The Vation Group, our job is to take care of all the details so that you can focus on your sponsors, guests and friends.  We provide the logistical and operational experience to make your event become a success and on budget.

“You take care of all the details for us and it is so easy to work with you.  And you give us the peace of mind that we usually don’t get when planning events.”  These are the two comments we hear over and over again.

This philosophy has been stayed the same- from event #1 over 15 years ago to event #7,000, 15 years later.

We offer cost effective and revenue generating consulting programs designed to increase the revenue stream of your event.  It is our passion to orchestrate flawless events!  Whether it is a small part of your puzzle or full scale Event Coordination/Production, it is our job to make sure your event receives a “Standing Ovation”.

How do you take your next event, gala, reception, or meeting to the next level? There are many different ways to answer that, but here’s the question we ask (and can answer)…How do you take it to the next level and keep it profitable, memorable, and sustainable for future years? For 15 years, we have been helping companies and organizations do just that. Our experience, commitment to making sure all the details are handled and contacts give our clients the peace of mind that their events will be taken care of and make money as well as memories.
It starts with an idea, theme and maybe even a committee. How these items grow requires planning, leadership, team building and creativity. Being a part of thousands of events over the years including major galas, grand openings, national induction parties, etc. have given us the experience to put these ideas and teams together and to keep them on task and on budget.

Is your event tired, stagnant and just like everyone else’s? With the right creativity, marketing and promotion, your event can stand out. Give your team the ability to think outside the event box. And be innovative to think how to attract new people and sponsors to your event, other than the lists that everyone else has.

Food and beverage can make or break your event. The quality plays a major part, but so does the service, creativity and price. We have the experience to take this part and make it shine.

Your goal is the “Standing Ovation” for your event. Our goal for you is that too, but we strive for the long-term applause. Your event may be breathtaking and unforgettable, but if it didn’t make the money, was unorganized, was delayed or just didn’t have the right team in place, it may not be deemed a success.
