What fun we had designing an epic Gothic themed event for a corporate client from Colorado - AdAction. This event was the GALA EVENT for the entire corporate staff on their four day trip to Palm Springs. The bar was set high and TheBank Director Patrick Bartlett assembled an outstanding team of creatives to turn our blank canvas into an amazing Gothic inspired mansion.

This is a quick overview of the team of creatives involved. Subsequent blog posts will follow highlighting each vendor individually. Let's start with lighting; it is essential to make an event pop with lighting. We are lucky to have one of the best: Shine Lighting

Shine came in and lit the building inside and out. They also installed the stage, audio for the performers and DJ. 

The film clips playing randomly throughout the night created such an amazing added element

The furniture is of course just as critical and we are lucky to have an amazing local division of AFR Furniture Rentals in Palm Springs.

Decorations bring in so many details to enhance the event - Charlotte Groves of Floral Design effortlessly captured the vision right down to the smallest details.

The performance troupe FlowBox created the perfect balance of eerie energy throughout the night.

The bar and late night sweets were executed with precision thanks to our in-house bar service Liquid Catering. They pulled out all the stops to create perfect mad scientist drinks complete with dry ice, and a display of sweets for later in the evening.

The DJ for the evening also associated with Flowbox was the one and only C3ASARE

This was an event that tapped into all the elements offered at TheBank. Large open space, high ceilings with rigging for lights and aerial performances, and architectural elements that soak up light and transform the space into anything you can imagine it being.

Most importantly, the guests had an amazing time!
