About the Event – With Love From Paris
The pandemic was ending & employees had the travel bug. Trip itineraries were top of mind and it was time to explore the world. NorLand Limited, a Familial group of specialized businesses, recognized the need to create the feeling for their employees of having travelled to a sought-after destination. This was also the first time they were able to host this annual event post-pandemic and they knew it was important to bring their employees together in a spectacular setting.
Upon arrival at the venue, guests were transported to the heart of Paris, with the Eiffel Tower as the focal point surrounded by historic monuments such as the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe and famous Parisian cafés flanking a snow-covered park. Bright Ideas Events partnered with Grant Harasyn, Benoit Waller and Tedd Kuchera from Vancouver Art Department for their creative design services, strategic event solutions and artistic theme development. The production and installation of realistic Parisan landmarks and shops provided the perfect backdrop for an immersive guest experience.
The streets of Paris were bustling with activity, as guests explored the iconic monuments, savoured the delicious French cuisine, and mingled around the cafés, soaking up the relaxed Parisian way of life. The event was a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of the event team behind it, who never lost sight of their client’s key objective – “design an event that transports guests to an iconic destination”.
A myriad of uniquely, engaging activities were provided for guests to enjoy. A Paint-by-Numbers activation encouraged guests to work together to complete a stunning mural of Paris, which now hangs in the client’s office, creating a lasting event memory of this Parisian experience.
