Recap of The Special Event Show

Hello Sassies!

I have had a wild couple of weeks – Golden Globes and the Super Bowl!!! But I have been meaning to tell y’all about a wonderfully and SASSY! event industry conference I attended last month and look forward to EVERY year – The Special Event!!!! It is a wonderful way to start every year and learn about the next hot trends in events.

This year I was particularly excited about three great collections from CORT, LED Luna Lighting, Endless Seating and the Gamer Collection. CORT’s booth featured the modular Endless Seating collection with photos and samples illustrating the many possible configurations – this seating system is truly flexible enough to create spaces for 20 or 200 people. CORT’s Gamer Collection was on display at the conference’s Performance Stage Lounge and drew many event planners excited about a new product for the growing number of events focused on technology and video gaming. It seems nearly every event now includes video gaming sections and this product is perfect for setting up gaming stations!

Attendees at the TSE Starts Here party got to experience the Luna Lighting collection first-hand, as the entrance, dance floor and balcony area were ringed with an impressive display of Luna café and bar tables. I always say that the best way to learn and improve your own events is to attend and experience them as often as possible! The highlight of the conference was when I joined my friends Kevin Dana and Michael Cerbelli for the “What’s Hot” session, where we got to share CORT’s new Modern Glamour collection, along with the Endless Seating and Gamer Collections. Michael was right – these new collections are both timely and innovative.

We all had a blast and I couldn’t wait to share with my Sassies! Check out photos from the show below.
