Corporate Event Management
Special events are the perfect answer to the question: How do I get my customers and prospects all to myself? Special events provide the best way to connect with customers, prospects, colleagues and even your own employees and partners. At Idea International, our goal is to make your event memorable and provide the environment that will help all attendees focus on your company and your goals—all in an unforgettable situation. We stand apart from other corporate event management companies.
The term “event” covers a broad spectrum of meanings. For some people, an event may be an adjunct to a trade show. For others, an event can be a stand-alone entity. For example, when the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania did a world tour to connect with alumni, Idea International managed the event in the APAC region. Still others might put educational sessions—seminars, speaker series, or key opinion leader dinners—in the event category.
Planning an event in the APAC region takes a significant knowledge of cultural sensitives. What works in one country may be offensive in another. Food and beverage choices are dictated by culture; many countries in the APAC region frown on alcohol consumption. Everything from cutlery to preferential seating needs to be filtered through the keen eyes of event managers who know the specific country or region (as is the case in China). Event managers like those you will find at Idea International. Because we are based in the APAC region we must be absolutely aware of cultural, religious, and political issues that influence the success of events.
Idea International is also skilled in facilitating business meetings. If you plan to have a meeting in an APAC country, you want to make sure that you are not only getting the best facilities and arrangements possible—you also want to make sure that pricing is transparent and that your meeting managers know how to negotiate effectively. Quoting for meeting services in the APAC region is not always as line-item driven as it is, say, in the U.S. Having an event manager that knows the nuances of the negotiation process is critical.
Each event that we plan is unique, and no event is too big or too small. Events, particularly in the APAC region including countries such as Japan, Korea, China, Malaysia, Thailand, are significant occasions, an opportunity for guests to network, to deepen personal bonds, to recognize achievements, to celebrate milestones and to create lasting impressions. Idea International designs and orchestrates your events from start to finish, leaving your guests with a one of a kind experience. Idea International’s event management and meeting planning will bring your vision to life with style and class, no matter where you hold it, no matter who your guests are.
As we put our heads to pillow after a long and productive day at Gastech Japan 2017, I would like to tell you how proud I am of each and every one of you who gave 110% and what an honor it is to work beside the best of the best!”
