Travel encompasses more than simply getting on a plane or staying at a hotel—and our innovative events division is the culmination. Our team of experts develops one-of-a-kind events for clients across all industries, from annual corporate retreats in exclusive destinations to trade shows in major cities to parties and product launches.
Inspiration Coordination Creativity
How do we make it possible? If you know us well, you know it all comes down to relationships. Our relationships with our key partners mean that we can secure that hard-to-get venue, offer VIP benefits at luxury properties across the world and create itineraries for activities to do while there. Plus, these relationships with prominent vendors means we’re able to take care of everything in between: from planning to set-up to offering those one-of-a-kind touches that will have people talking for years to come.
Whether you’re creating your first event or you’re an industry vet who’s looking to switch things up, our event experts offer the opportunity to put together something truly special.
A One-Stop Shop
With both event planners and travel advisors, First in Service can offer clients something truly unique: The ability to plan every aspect of your event—from booking flights and hotels for all your guests to finding those vendors that will take your party to the next level. Not to mention doing it all quickly and easily: We once planned a 150-person wedding for a TV production in just five days—and that’s just scratching the surface of what we can do.
Attention to Detail
When planning any event—from a birthday party to a corporate bash—the key to our success is our ability to juggle lots of moving parts and pay attention to every detail. From highlighting the unique attributes of the host city (like having a bone reader at a French Quarter fête) to learning what special touches will make the guest-of-honor happy (like wagon rides for a triplet birthday party), we pride ourselves on creating one-of-a-kind events that will leave everyone happy.
Planning a 200-Person Event in Just Two Weeks
One of our favorite “mission impossible” moments went like this: We had just two weeks to plan a blow-out bash for 200 automotive execs, athletes and celebrities—in Las Vegas, during a major convention, over Super Bowl weekend. But we love nothing more than a challenge, so we were all in. And thanks to the amazing relationships we have with our vendors, we were able to pull off a huge win. That night, there was great wine, a fully-stocked cognac bar, hand-rolled cigars, betting games—and even a masseuse on hand to ease aching muscles. We partied till dawn and everyone felt like a true MVP.
Creating an Unforgettable Bash in New Orleans
When First in Service takes on an event, we really take on an event. After an ad agency and an automotive company came to us about planning a joint event in New Orleans, we knew we had to make it special. That night we transformed what was originally going to be just a run-of-the-mill reception in the French Quarter to a “Big Bash in the Big Easy.” And the 300-person event really lived up to its name: There was a band procession—complete with Grand Marshall—that made its way down Bourbon Street and ended at the Wax Museum. That’s where guests were greeted by burlesque dancers, jesters, and even voodoo priestesses. But that wasn’t all: There were voodoo doll makers, a Zydeco band, and lots more. It was truly a party for the ages.
