When this large annual conference wanted an eye-catching offsite, while still keeping an eye on the budget, 360DG built out an evening of unexpected experiences just steps from McCormick Place.
Hotel or Venue:
When you’re the last DMC to present venue options to the client, and the first stop is a walkable option directly adjacent to the front door of the convention center that no one else had shown them, you know you’re starting off on the right foot.YOUR NEXT DESTINATION EVENT STARTS HERE
Understanding a large-scale association can sometimes encounter budget challenges, we also selected this venue to save valuable dollars on transportation costs which were then reincorporated back into the guest experience via games, soft seating, and elements more memorable than motor coaches.
Although the venue was walkable from McCormick Place, the route included quite a few turns. We struck up an actual marching band to get everyone moving in the right direction, and then strategically placed professional sign spinners (it’s a thing!) along the way to help guide guests and build energy as they traversed toward the main event.
Hiring the right DMC will not only raise the quality and creativity of your program – it can also make it more affordable. Our team knows our venues inside and out and we understand where to spend and where to save for the most lasting impact. In addition, we collaborated with this client to design strategic sponsorship packages and present creative fundraising ideas which helped drive dollars directly back to their bottom line.REQUEST YOUR CUSTOMIZED EVENT PROPOSAL
