URBAN PLAYGROUND

On January 9-12, 2017, over 4000 event professionals from around the world coverged in Long Beach for The Special Event conference and tradeshow. Urban Playground was the concept for the final night event and reflected the "where the STREET meets the BEACH" culture that Long Beach is known for. 


Included were references to iconic Long Beach landmarks such as Grand Prix, The Pike, downtown, Aquarium of The Pacific & Shoreline Park however with a distinct EDM (electric dance music) influence.


INSPIRE THE WORLD

The Peace Gala and Fundraiser is a time honored tradition at Soka University. All proceeds from the gala benefit the Soka University Scholarship Endowment fund. 

Infinity Events was selected to produce this year's gala which took place on October 8, 2016. and used the beauty of the SUA campus and Soka's core values of Hope and Peace as the inspiration for design which focused on transforming the SUA Recreation Center into a utopian landscape of a lush green field beneath a sky of blue and white clouds.

LA VIE EN COULEUR

What is La Vie en Couleur?

La Vie en Couleur "Life In Color" was designed to be an evening where not only did guests experience Life In Color, but also where "Color Came To Life"!

This evening celebrated the Avant Garde, the Artistic Visionaries and those willing to take risks and unafraid to push the envelope.

There was an unapologetic rush of sensory overload from the moment the guests arrived as they experienced Parisian "Punk" Couture and over the top opulence all while sipping cocktails The garden of Crystals and Color cocktail Lounge.

Inspired by Andy Warhol, this event celebrated those who were willing to "think different, be unique and to live "La Vie en Couleur"!


OC STYLE

On January 6, 2015,  IEI president, Robb Thornsberry produced the opening night event for 1200 attendees of The Special Event Conference & Tradeshow.  Although this is a typical event for many Anaheim conventions, these were not your typical convention attendees and this was not your typical welcome reception.

Attendees of this event were other event professionals from around the world who have seen it all, so impressing them would not be an easy task.  This would require a venue that no one has ever seen before and building a new venue was not an option.

The Anaheim Garden Walk, is a nearby outdoor shopping mall that had plenty of space and was within walking distance of the Anaheim Convention Center.  The challenge was to create an event that had to impress in a venue that has never been used as an event venue before.

Utilizing two levels, in the back portion of the shopping center that sees very little foot traffic was transformed into a multi-level, multi-sensory experience that depicted the culture and style of the OC.  

As guests traveled along the event's "freeway to fun" they encountered 5 iconic cities and environments that best depict the Orange County lifestyle and culture.
