Event Solutions/Catersource Wrap Up! Another Fabulous CORT Success!!!

Hello Sassies!

I had a fabulous time working with CORT last week at the 2010 Event Solutions and Catersource Conference and Tradeshow. I was so proud of my friends at CORT – they won the 2010 Spotlight Award for Rental Company of the year! Congrats!! And the awards show was held at the Las Vegas Mandarin Oriental Hotel – simply stunning!

I hope some of y’all had a chance to catch the State of the Industry panel that I participated with in with CORT’s Kevin Dana and Laura Schwartz, former White House event director during the Clinton administration. Our take? 2010 is looking brighter, although budgets may still be tight. It’s time to get creative with smaller budgets! Check out CORT’s free space planning tool – it will help you plan efficiently and get the most bang for your event.

My favorite part of the show was the Furniture Fashion Police! As promised, we had so much fun sharing ideas about what’s hot in event furnishings rental this year and which celebrities are paying attention! Check out a video and some photos from the event now!

See Me LIVE in Vegas next week with CORT Event Furnishings!

Hello, Sassies!

Look for me at the 2010 Event Solutions & Catersource Conference and Tradeshow in Las Vegas at 4 p.m. on March 9 and 11 a.m. on March 10. I’ll be at the CORT Gamer Lounge, booth #1705, serving as top cop for the Furniture Fashion Police to dish about what’s hot (and so not hot) in event furniture design.

What type of furniture was used at a certain Yankee’s birthday party? What couches completed a dressing room tailor-made for two unbelievable singer/actresses? These pieces have been everywhere from the Grammys to NBA All Star Game parties to the soap opera screen, and you don’t want to miss this if you’re wondering what furniture will make celebrity events sizzle this year!

Oh and y’all simply must hear about the two collections CORT Event Furnishings will be featuring at the show. I don’t want to spoil the whole surprise, but The Gamer Collection will certainly be on the hot list for video gaming and technology events!
