In April, CLI Groups was able to help pharmaceutical group, One Retail, Inc., amaze their top sales representatives with an unforgettable Las Vegas event experience.
The group was challenged with guests arriving from all parts of the country, including areas of extreme snow storms causing flight delays. Additionally, the group’s wide range of preferred Las Vegas activities and entertainment in Las Vegas presented One Retail’s Vice President and Creative Director with challenges appealing to all guests. Luckily, they hired our team at CLI Groups to help.
When flights were delayed due to unexpected Spring snow storms, CLI’s transportation event management team knew just what to do. Our extended dispatch teams tracked flights and adjusted arrival manifests in real-time to ensure our greeters were at the right place at the right time.
All-New McCarran Airport Arrival Experience
McCarran Airport has had several changes within the past 10 years, with more improvements planned beyond 2018. CLI’s on-site Las Vegas transportation experts knew how to work between multiple terminals to greet all guests at the correct baggage claim areas. To complete the VIP Las Vegas arrival experience, CLI had an arrival photographer ready at the hotel to take check-in and ambiance photos.
Unique Las Vegas Activities
While coordinating and offering multiple Las Vegas activities can be a challenge, our team has planned thousands of Las Vegas excursions and creative activities since 2004 for corporate incentive programs, corporate conferences and various types of corporate special events. The result? Our clients benefit from the freedom to focus on guests, not coordinating a wide range of activities and logistics. One Retail’s guests enjoyed all types of Las Vegas activities from ATV tours, Hoover Dam tours, scavenger hunts, and more.
The final touch before departing Las Vegas was to host a sales award ceremony and reception to recognize top performers. Our client knew they needed to make a memorable impression and asked CLI’s creative team to share ideas. The group decided an interactive event complete with a paparazzi-style photo station, live band for entertainment, engraved awards, and gorgeous decor would take the awards reception to the next level.
One major objective with any Las Vegas event is timing. Just as flights don’t always arrive on time, award ceremony schedules often have on-site changes that require an experienced event planner to manage. Our CLI Groups event manager, Shanel, was able to utilize her experience executing more than 200 events to adjust the band’s performance time when award acceptance speeches ran longer than expected.
It’s our Las Vegas event planner expertise such as the ability to adjust when the unplanned happens that sets CLI Groups apart from other event planners. If you are considering a local destination management company for your next corporate event, contact our team at CLI Groups today to learn how we may be able to help. You won’t regret it!
