Avnet Partner Summit
Harbor Entertainment worked with Avnet’s IBM division to create a special welcome dinner for the opening night of the 2016 Partner Summit. We occupied the French restaurant Zinc in Scottsdale, AZ, and created a champagne infused French carnival theme for guests.
The event started with a themed walk from the hotel to Zinc. Stilt walkers, candy striper hosts, and a live traveling brass band led the group over dancing. Upon arrival guests were greeted by dueling pianos, a blue champagne tower, wine and beer pairings, and French appetizers. The restaurant’s sommelier guided guests through a unique wine and champagne selection while the Harbor Entertainment custom record bar greeted guests by the pianos with local craft beers. Outside on the patio guests could let loose at the photo booth and enjoy the warm weather.
Harbor coordinated multiple branded items and giveaways to enhance this event including champagne bubbles, champagne gummy bears, IBM Business Partner napkins, light up bracelets, champagne glasses, beer glasses, and stir sticks. For gift bags at the event we created gift wrapped and branded macaroons, customized blue-tooth speakers, and IBM Business Partner tote bags.
We also created graphics for a custom e-vite to the event as well as specialty signage throughout the conference space.
