A few words about making the most of winter then enjoying the Spring!

Posted on: March 8th, 2017 by Dan Hixon

Everyone knows how hard the Chicago winters are. What helps us get through them, besides the pioneer spirit? You should embrace what you can’t change! That can mean getting yourself good, sensible winter gear & go ice skating, skiing, shovel your elderly neighbors driveway or go for walks in the many parks. There is also a wealth of fabulous entertainment to choose from, with seasons that focus on the cold months: Chicago Shakespeare Theater, the Joffrey Ballet, Broadway in Chicago, Chicago Symphony, Civic Opera Company, to name just a few. Outdoor activities help you physically & live theater tends the inner spirit.

All that being said, by the end of the long winter, we can’t wait for spring! If you’re planning an event, spring is a great time to schedule it. It’s easier & more dependable for guests to travel & people are ready to get out. For Corporate Sales Meetings, it’s a great time to motivate. You get a feeling of renewal & new enthusiasm.

Combining work with fun is also important. If Chicago is a destination for your company or corporate meeting, please consider providing entertainment, to enhance your goals & networking. Make that next Convention memorable for everyone attending by making it entertaining as well as informative!

Having the Blues can be fun!

Posted on: January 23rd, 2014 by Dan Hixon

Every big city has something that distinguishes it. What do people think of & want to experience when they come to Chicago? Deep dish pizza. Italian Beef. The Cubs. & of course, Blues. In fact, having the Cubs as our team has made us really understand the Blues! We have such a wealth of great Blues Bands here & they can be the core of a great party.

One very popular Corporate Networking Event, is to recreate a Blues Club. This can be done with an openhouse type of feel, where guests are drawn in by food & beverage stations & the promise of some great entertainment. This is accomplished with a club type atmosphere, which can be made even more enticing with something like Close Up Magicians working the room, along with perhaps Caricature Artists or Psychics. Then, the Main Stage entertainment performance takes over with short shows or vignettes, after which your guest can mingle again, but are encouraged to stick around “for the next set”.

This format is really effective & gives your people the Chicago feel, while still staying in your Hotel or facility & getting to know each other or making new contacts!
