We’ve busy with a myriad of events the past few weeks. Today we thought we’d share one of the programs with you!
For a custom program for a client who invited fifteen of their top international clients to the Winter Music Conference in Miami we put together a trip of fun, memorable experiences, great food and relaxation. Their main objective was to highlight Miami and all that it has to offer within the winter months. In addition, the guests were large nightclub owners, so you can imagine their excitement at being in Miami during the Winter Music Conference.
We know designing a winter program in Miami while everyone else is buried knee deep in chilly winter weather is a tough job…but someone’s gotta do it. *smile* We designed a program filled with more fun than should be legal. The object was to showcase the best of the best in Miami while providing unexpected and memorable experiences.
Guest arrival and check in at the beautiful Delano Hotel started off the trip. This urban treat is located in the heart of South Beach and directly on the ocean. Delano is the ultimate world-class urban resort hotel and self-contained destination. In a completely original manipulation of space that blurs all “normal” distinctions, Delano boasts the first indoor/outdoor lobby, offering a seamless flow between a series of unique environments. Philippe Starck has assembled a stunning international collection of furniture and objects, including works from such renowned artists as Antonio Gaudi, Man Ray, Charles and Ray Eames, Salvador Dali and Mark Newson. It’s a stunning hotel and a must see when you are in Miami!
Why not start off a fun filled trip with a dine around at some of the most upscale restaurants in Miami. The Blue Door…Asia d Cuba, Prime 112, and the VITA. Can you say delicious? Trust us, it was. And, more importantly the guests thought so too!
The next day we took them off for a few days in Key West in a convoy of convertible cars. We dropped the tops, let our hair down and enjoyed the beautiful drive down to the Keys.
When the convertible convoy arrived in Key West, we checked them into the Casa Marina hotel. Built in 1920, Casa Marina, is a flawless merging of old Key West ambiance and contemporary luxury. Immerse yourself in a restful haven where emerald lawns meet a blue Atlantic – welcoming stunning sunrises each day.
It is the “house by the sea” enveloped in breezy elegance and shaded by graceful palms. Again, if you haven’t been there, it’s a bucket list experience.
That evening, it was off for a sail and then dinner on the beach. Guests were soaking up every moment of the warm weather and beautiful views.
The next day it was back to Miami for a night of club crawling at some of Miami’s hottest night clubs – Mansion, Mynt, Mokai, Set…all of them. During the Winter Music Conference there’s a party on every corner and since they were night club owners themselves, they were in their element. Every year in March, Miami becomes the global platform of electronica music. Any artist or DJ Electro, beginner or advanced, must be in Miami for this explosion of festivals. And this, to the delight of fans of Electro House, Ambient, Trance and Techno, and our clients were! It’s a busy time in Miami as nearly 2,000 artists and DJs are invited to perform, approximately 500 journalists from around the world present to cover the event, industry professionals descend upon the city from all over the world. Professionals are discovering new talent, DJs are trying to make themselves known and the public enjoys. And, enjoy our guests did!
We’d shown the guests Miami by car, by hotel, by food and entertainment as well as the history and rich Art Deco District architecture …what better way to add a wow than to showcase the city by air. And, we did…with a 30 minute helicopter tour of the city.
And, of course what trip to the United States would be complete without some free time to shop…and shop they did. With a quick trip to the Aventura Mall in Miami Beach!
The next day was departure day, and guests headed to the beach for some rest and relaxation before leaving for Miami International Airport to catch their flights home.
With all the fun that we had, we think we FINALLY wore them out. Let it not be said that these guests wouldn’t keep going until they dropped. We barely outlasted them, but we were still standing at the end of this whirlwind, jam packed trip!
