Why throw a Gala Event
There are many reasons why an organisation might choose to throw a large gala event.
Perhaps you are looking to reward employees for their hard work in recent months? Or impress stakeholders and attract future investment?
For particularly large organisations, it might be a matter of looking to launch a new product or service.
Sometimes it is simply a matter of celebrating an excellent result or a major milestone.
Marriott – Club 2000 Gala
Recently, the Marriott Hotel Group in Austria decided to throw a major gala event in order to thank its most valued customers. And organisations in Australia may want to take note of the decorations and audiovisual technology that they used.
The annual event – now in its ninth year – was held on January 26, and only those event and travel planners who had booked 2,000 or more nights in a single year with Marriott Hotel Group hotels were invited to join.
Over 170 guests journeyed to the Vienna Marriott Hotel in order to celebrate and take part in the Club 2000 Gala.
This year, the theme was “Carnival in Venice”, and opulent decorations were used to create a colourful festival-like atmosphere in the venue.
A number of notable Austrian celebrities were present, including 2012 Olympic Hurdler Beate Schrott, and live music was provided by Austrian band SMASH.
The special dinner for this gala event consisted of a range of fantastic Italian specialities and Venetian wine. Plus, an authentic Carnival mask door prize was offered to all who attended.
This event serves as a great example of how an organisation might look to throw a large scale gala event in order to set themselves apart from the competition and really capture the attention of valued customers.
