Despite the 5 inches of snow that covered Cincinnati yesterday, Team Simply Events ventured out for its first quarterly business meeting for West Capital Advisors! Looking to move away from the standard restaurant “private party room” space, Tonic on Fourth provided the perfect quiet, private atmosphere for our client had been searching for. Comfy couches and chairs along with bright walls made the room feel warm and inviting. Cocktail tables in the rear of the meeting space encouraged networking during breaks, as well as provided a standing option for guests.

With a majority of the A/V included in the rental, this allowed us to stay within the client’s desired budget. A large screen ensured the client’s visual presentation could be seen from every seat in the house! When the generic analog conference phone didn’t work with the digital phone line in the space, Team Simply Events put their brains together and came up with a perfect solution. A blue tooth speaker sound system, provide by Simply Events, enabled the use of the client’s conference call services provided by Join Me.

What’s a meeting without food and drinks?! Savor Catering provided a fully stocked bar for guests to enjoy, as well as an array of garnished hors d’oeuvres. Twice baked roasted red potato bites and cocktail meatballs were a huge hit with guests! Meeting guests also enjoyed fried mac n’ cheese bites, crab stuffed mushrooms, eggs rolls and fried green tomato sliders!

No matter the weather; rain, shine, or in this case SNOW, Team Simply Events will do what it takes to make sure its client’s event goes off without hitch!

Olay Product Launch at P&G!

This morning, the Simply Events team had the opportunity to participate in the Olay Fresh Effects
product launch at the Procter & Gamble headquarters downtown Cincinnati!

Less than two weeks ago, a company in New York City contacted Simply Events to assist in the execution of a product launch for a Cincinnati based company. Not knowing whom the launch was for, we quickly responded to the inquiry. It wasn’t long after that we found out we would be hiring a model to hand deliver a tray of tea, pastries, and Olay Fresh Effects products to the planning/strategy meeting for the beauty and skin care lines at Procter & Gamble!

What a fun and exciting request for Simply Events! We had such a blast browsing through several of model portfolios and working with a local modeling agency to find the perfect man for the launch! Tough job, right?!

The model delivered the tray with this one-liner,  “Good Morning! With Olay Fresh Effects new beauty product line, you can be sure to stay looking fresh, even if you’ve been up all night!” 

Take a look at the beautiful tray of Olay products...oh yea, and that handsome model too!

We love event planning!!
