Space that Rocks for Association of Registered Interior Designers (ARIDO)

Space that Rocks for Association of Registered Interior Designers (ARIDO)

Esteemed Events was hired to rejuvenate the annual awards gala for ARIDO .  “Space that Rocks” was designed to bring back the glamour and excitement of awards galas from the ‘80s.  Esteemed Events recruited media personality Anne Mroczkowski to host the event which attracted 800 guests to the Direct Energy Centre’s Heritage Court.  Esteemed Events managed an event committee comprised of leading designers in Ontario, to transform the cavernous Heritage Court into a hip dance club.  With a dance troupe recruited to entertain guests in between the awards presentation, a VIP area and a DJ spinning tunes, Space that Rocks infused a youthful, of-the-moment vibe to a staid breakfast program of previous years. The following year, Esteemed Events returned to Heritage Court, and orchestrated a more formal gala dinner with a keynote speaker, Craig Kielberger.

In subsequent years, ARIDO has taken the event design and planning in-house and has hired Esteemed Events to manage their event team and execute the event on the day of the awards program so that internal team members can network, and enjoy the evening’s festivities.
