event planners vancouver

Are you planning a big event, but feel lost in a sea of details? Event planning can be overwhelming – especially if it’s not something you do every day. Thankfully, we’re here to help. Curve has planned everything from trade show booths to annual galas for more than 15 years. Let us worry about the logistics so you don’t have to.

Every event has a unique purpose and meaning behind it. Maybe you’re organizing a fundraiser for a cause. Or perhaps you’re holding an annual gala or dinner to recognize the hard work of people in your industry. Or maybe you need to promote your business at a corporate event like a trade show. Or you might need to plan a launch party for a new company or store.

At Curve, we believe event planning is personal. That’s why we act as a member of your team regardless of the type of event you hire us to plan. We get to know your organization, the meaning behind the event, what you hope to achieve, your vision for the big day, and much more. You’re still in the driver’s seat, but think of us as your GPS. We navigate you through the maze of details and logistics.

Our Event Specialties


Trade Shows/Corporate Event Planning

Expos and trade shows are excellent ways to connect with potential customers or clients, as well as competitors. Industry events like this also give companies the opportunity to outshine the competition, so don’t just show up with a few brochures.

Many trade shows have themes and requirements. For example, annual conferences and trade shows run by various mortgage broker associations across Canada always have themes – from movies to dinosaurs to camping and more.

So if you need to get the creative juices flowing, call on Curve. Our team has organized trade show booths for Capital Direct that involve the movie the Hangover, sourcing an indoor campfire, and much more.

Having Curve on your team, means you have someone to

  • liaise with event organizers on your behalf
  • pitch creative ideas to help you stand out from the competition
  • suggest, source and order giveaways
  • design and print creative collateral
  • help run your booth


Galas

Galas are a massive undertaking and can take up to a year to plan. Curve knows every element

that goes into large-scale gala events because we’ve organized the Ma Murray Community

Newspaper Awards for the last 15 years.

This annual awards ceremony recognizes the hard work of journalists, editors, photographers, designers and publishers in British Columbia’s community newspaper industry. Curve plans everything from a scholarship luncheon and annual general meeting to a dinner gala and after party. We also secure sponsorship to cover the cost of the event, negotiate with the venue, run the voting and judging of awards, find hosts, write speeches, select menus, and book entertainment.

No gala is exactly the same, but every event requires stellar organization skills. You can count on Curve to take your next awards dinner or gala from vision to flawless success.

When you work with us, you get

  • a team of event planners, writers, marketers and public relations specialists on your side
  • experienced fundraisers to approach and negotiate with potential sponsors
  • someone to secure a venue on your behalf
  • monthly meetings on the status of the planning process
  • menu, signage, and program designs
  • script and speech writing for hosts and other keynote speakers
  • social media management during the event
  • advertising assistance (if needed)
  • and more


Launches

You only get one chance to launch a business. At Curve, we make sure you do it right. After all, you don’t want to launch your company in an underwhelming way after months or years of developing a business plan, securing financing, and getting ready to open.

We approach every launch differently because no business is the same. We listen to your vision, visit your location, and get to know you. Then we craft a plan that is within your budget, but still meets your wants and needs.

Our team will…

  • have an initial meeting with you
  • get to know your business
  • brainstorm unique ideas to make your launch a success
  • send out invites to business contacts and/or members of the media
  • manage social media for the launch
  • book entertainment (if desired)
  • design creative collateral needed for the event

Curve can launch your business on the track to success. Or we can make your annual gala the event of the year. Just sit back, relax and watch all the pieces fall into place.
