Los Angeles Event Spotlight: Space Shuttles and Silver Screens

It’s time for another event spotlight from your friends at The Event Team destination management company! Today we feature a multi-day, multi-function global summit event held for an association comprised of some of the world’s leading real estate professionals, service providers and economic developers. The Los Angeles program was based out of the luxurious J.W. Marriott LA Live. As destination experts, we loved this event because it allowed us to execute offsite and onsite events that were uniquely Los Angeles. Here are several highlights:

Chairman’s Reception and Dinner – California Science Center

First up was a night of décor and entertainment in the California Science Center’s Samuel Oschin Pavilion, where guests were able to dine directly underneath the historic Space Shuttle Endeavour. The Event Team did some shuttling of our own, moving 250 guests from the J.W. Marriott to the museum via six motorcoaches. Along the way, our professional uniformed guides provided a brief overview regarding the shuttle’s fascinating history. Starting with a pre-dinner reception featuring DJ entertainment, guests were then seated for plated dinner service. Special guest and former NASA astronaut Garrett Reisman addressed the group, showing a video about his previous missions and speaking about his career highlights. After dinner, guests mingled over coffee and dessert, which included a trendy Nespresso bar, miniature pastries, and liquid nitrogen ice cream stations.

Exhibit Hall Decor and Entertainment – Los Angeles Convention Center

The next day, The Event Team provided exhibit hall entertainment at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which included branded ice bars, chair massage therapists, neon stilt walkers, and neon jugglers.

Recognition Dinner – J.W. Marriott Diamond Ballroom

For the final evening, guests stayed onsite at the J.W. Marriott for an Old Hollywood-themed recognition dinner hosted in the hotel’s Diamond ballroom. Décor included a red carpet entrance, glamorous white linens and florals, and oversized framed images of silver screen stars. Music and entertainment was provided by Sinatra-style crooner Sergio Vellatti and his band.
