Events, Experiences & The Stories They Tell…

Every event is a story created from a live experience, which shape the way that our clients view our value.  It takes a lot of work to ensure that the services that we provide to our clients bring the value THEY are looking for to the table – especially these days.

 No matter what type of event we are doing, at V!BE our approach is the same.  Search out our client’s definition of value and then match it to the experience.  Successfully done, the event provides the story and the conversation that keeps your clients coming back for more, over and over.  And, isn’t that what we want?  Return clients?

 One of the ways that we continually provide value to our client’s is to find a venue or property that is representative of our client’s brand, their objectives and their level of event style.  Then we bring it to life.

 One of our latest discoveries is a perfect location for a client that might looking to provide an extraordinary setting for an exclusive business meeting with a luxury experience attached.  Let’s take a look.

That’s just for starters.

 Along with the stunning views, and the luxurious surroundings, the suite of services that are inclusive in the overall pricing are impressive. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Looking for a Luxurious Blank Canvas for Your Next Event?

Looking for a luxurious, blank canvas in which to create a spectacular event?  Well, V!BE has the perfect venue just for you.  Our featured gem is centrally located in the famous Art Deco District of Miami’s ultra-chic South Beach.

This 16,350 square foot private residence in South Beach sits on two adjacent lots only two blocks from shopping mecca Lincoln Road. The building was originally designed and constructed in 1933 as a single-family residence by world famous Art Deco architect L. Murray Dixon. It was expanded upon in 1942 when it was converted to a synagogue, and expanded again in 1965 to accommodate the growing congregation of 1,000 members.

In March of 2003, the property was purchased by a private party and underwent an extensive 2-year renovation in which all architectural features of the building were painstakingly preserved while still allowing the installation of completely new electrical, plumbing, air conditioning and life safety systems.  Today, it’s available for private events.  Can’t you just see you and your guests in this beautiful space?

 For more information on this and other venues that we have available for corporate and social events, please drop us a line at valerie@thevibeagency.com or give us a jingle at 305.695.7718.

It’s ICY HOT in Orlando!

We always love to share awesome new ideas and cool products with you, but today, we have a venue that we think is just icy cool!  I got to spend some time chatting with the owner of the venue, Patz Turner, and the more we chatted, the more enthusiastic I became.  She has such a clear vision of how the venue can become not just visually stunning, but in delivering the message that you need to communicate to your guests.

There are so many different ideas that we can put into play in this flexible venue, we are out looking for the perfect client to take there.  Let’s tell you a bit about it.

From customized vodka tastings and 27 different varieties and flavors of vodka to choose from, the experience and the variety of drink packages are as flexible as you need them to be.  Even the glasses are created from ice.  As Patz likes to say, “We serve our drinks, in the rocks, not on them.”  What fun!

In addition to a creative beverage package, Patz loves getting creative with the menus they design.  From the wildly exotic to the more traditional menus, food can be as spectacular as you want it to be in a manner that will suit your budget perfectly.  Don’t you just love this place already?

The final sell to us is the many custom branding options to make the venue your own.  From the four flat screens outside the entrance to a projector wall in the venue, the opportunities abound to deliver any message effectively.  With custom ice carving services available in house,  you can really get your company logo and message into the ice.

So, you’re intrigued, but like any great planner out there, you want to know the details.  We understand.  Let’s take a look!

The Big Apple Does It Again…With Moving Imagery!

We are seriously on a mission to expand our catalog of great event locations.  We’ve found another one, this time in New York City.  If you haven’t heard about it, you might want to check it out.  Located in the growing area of Astoria (Queens), Museum of the Moving Image has recently undergone an extensive sixty seven million dollar renovation.

Museum of the Moving Image is the country’s only museum dedicated to the art, history, technique, and technology of the moving image in all its forms. The Museum is a one-of-a-kind destination for audiences of all ages and interests, from connoisseurs of classic cinema to children and families to avid gamers.

Astoria is located in the North-West corner of Queens above Long Island City—and just fifteen minutes from Midtown Manhattan.  It is a thriving and rapidly expanding neighborhood in New York City. Over the last 20 years, Astoria has developed a distinct personality shaped by its culturally diverse residents and rich history.

Flanked by other renowned cultural institutions, such as MoMA PS1, The Noguchi Museum, and the Fisher Landau Center for Art and green spaces such as Socrates Sculpture Park, Astoria Park, and Gantry Plaza State Park, the area around the Museum offers much of interest.

Featuring extraordinary new facilities, the transformed Museum of the Moving Image is a stunning setting to host private events. From small-scale to large parties, the Museum is able to accommodate a large range of events. All event fees help to support the Museum’s collections, services, and programs.

The Museum is available for:

  • Weddings
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvahs
  • Sweet Sixteens
  • Quinceañaras
  • Birthday parties
  • Retirement parties
  • And other private events

Galleries can remain open for guests to view the exhibitions and interactive experiences, including the opportunity to play the Museum’s classic arcade games. Museum educators are available to provide gallery talks and demonstrations.

In addition, the Museum is the perfect destination for corporate meetings and retreats. The Film Theater can host meetings and presentations for up to 267 attendees.

The Celeste and Armand Bartos Screening Room can be used for presentations or break-out meetings. The Digital Learning Suite can be used for meals or configured into two separate classrooms, each with its own projection facilities.

The seminar room offers exceptional executive quarters for up to 25 guests and features a fixed conference table and video capability.

The Museum of Moving Image is just one more exciting event venue we are happy to add to our catalogue.  For more information on this and other unique venues, please contact valerie@thevibeagency.com

You’ve Never Met Las Vegas Like This Before!!!!

As you know, at The VIBE AGENCY, we are always searching for new venues and spaces that we can transform to meet the needs and objectives of our clients and their meetings, conferences and events.  We scour the world for great venues and this week, we want to show you a brand new space. Las Vegas or as we fondly call it,  Sin City has something for everyone and now it even has something that’s just for EVENTS.  MEET Las Vegas.  No, really.  That’s the name.  MEET Las Vegas.  Let us tell you a little about it.  We promise.  You’re gonna LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

WHY?  Because it’s ALL ABOUT YOU!!!!

MEET Las Vegas is a new, unique event site, unlike traditional venues.  MEET was designed with one thing in mind – the success of our client’s events.  We’ve thought of every aspect needed for truly amazing events and built-in solutions for planners, from an innovative infrastructure and easy-to-hang experiential design elements, to customized lighting, cutting-edge technology, and multiple entry points for quick move-in and move-out.   At MEET, clients worry less and focus on branding, design and the other elements that make their event a success.

MEET’s goal is to help every client execute their dream event. MEET has the built-in technology and infrastructure to make it easy for clients to execute any event they can imagine, while removing the obstacles that hinder an event’s success.  The building is a blank canvas that clients can easily and quickly customize.  Clients can print their message directly onto MEET’s walls and floor, or hang a car or stage from myriad rigging points in its infrastructure. Digital signage displays and exterior banners give the client’s brand lasting impact both inside and out.  And, MEET’s lack of ambient light allows planners to use lighting to illuminate the room in any color to easily control their event’s mood and tone. MEET truly is a unique, event-friendly site, flexible enough to ensure a successful corporate or social event, including weddings. Anything the planner can imagine, can accomplished at MEET!

LET’S TAKE A LOOK, THERE’S EVEN MORE BENEFITS!!!!

MEET is designed for one thing and one thing only: events. At MEET, your event will be tailored to your every wish, both inside and outside. MEET is your full and inclusive total branding experience!

Convenient and Accessible

Located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, MEET is easily accessible no matter what part of town you are coming from.

Downtown

Downtown Las Vegas is where the world famous city began. MEET Las Vegas is located on the corner of 4th Street and Bridger Avenue. Just a few short blocks from MEET you will find legendary casinos that first put this city on the map, such as the AAA Four Diamond-Rated Golden Nugget Hotel, which recently completed an extensive $325 million renovation.

Downtown Las Vegas is also known for its famous attractions. Located on the historic Fremont Street is The Fremont St. Experience and The Fremont East. The Fremont St. Experience is an open-air pedestrian mall, equipped with a fixed stage and live entertainment. You can´t miss it. It boasts a four-block long, 12.5 million bulb canopy that produces impeccable imagery to the public, for free, on a nightly basis. Adjacent to the Fremont St. Experience is Fremont East, downtown´s new entertainment district. Capitalizing on the nostalgia of old Las Vegas, Fremont East can be spotted by its lighted gateways and retro neon signs.

Las Vegas Strip

In addition to its amazing location in the heart of downtown, MEET is also only minutes away from the luxury and glamour of the Las Vegas Strip. The Strip is renowned for its accommodations, restaurants, spas, and entertainment.

How could you not LOVE THIS PLACE?  It’s an event planner’s dream. In fact, we can’t WAIT to get to Las Vegas and utilize this venue. Come on, let’s go…

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback. Please don’t hesitate to contact us @valerie@thevibeagency.com with any questions you have about this or any other venue we can help with.

Go Ninja For Your Event!

Earlier this month, we learned about this amazing restaurant in NYC from our friends at The Party Goddess.  We loved it so much that we wanted to share the idea with our readers!  We hope you will like it as much as we did!!!

Looking for an experience for a small group in the Big Apple? Then you might want to consider NINJA New York. With the latest rage being dining experiences ranging from blind dining to extravagant environments, NINJA takes it over the top.

Mystique abounds as guests enter into a re-creation of a 15th century Japanese castle. There are no servers in this restaurant, but only ninjas who guide diners through a series of twists and turns, across a drawbridge, and, finally, to a cave-like table. The dining room is like a Japanese garden or grotto and tables are nicely separated from each other.

The waiters are all “trained ninjas” and perform magic tricks and interact with you throughout the evening. It’s a one of a kind dining experience combined with high-end Japanese cuisine. “Servers” deliver specialty Ninja Art Dishes which all involve some kind of theater as they are served including, smoke, fire and very sharp knives. You’ll want to pay close attention as the theater experience is almost as good as the food.

Though an ala cart menu is available, most diners opt for Chef Michinobu Okamoto’s tasting menu. We think the NINJA New York is great for a small exclusive group that wants to have an adventurous and entertaining evening as well as great food.

Check out this video we found on YouTube. We think you’ll be most pleasantly surprised.    NINJA New York

When you’re ready to experience dining, NINJA style, give the Vibe Agency a call. We think you’ll love  this venue but we also have many others to help you create extraordinary and exciting experiences for your group.

Contact valerie@thevibeagency.com for more information on The Vibe Agency and find out how we can create a custom program for you and your guests.
