Event Planner: Luis Cabrera

Number of Guests: 200

“To kick start a new year and decade, we wanted to welcome planners and industry professionals to an incredible event that would set the bar for 2020, and it did just that. In order to create a truly magical evening, our team came up with the theme of ‘Elements’. We wanted to focus on earth, air, fire and water; something that was also a play on ‘the Globe’. The event was dark and moody and all of our incredible planners and clients showed up to a space that was completely transformed. The result? A once in a lifetime event experience that created lots of buzz and inspired our guests to make magic in 2020.”

“From the very second the elevators opened, we were lured into a visually ground-breaking realm, which had the power to make anyone completely forget that they were in downtown Toronto. Let's just say the Garden of Eden is an understatement. Greeted by blissful sounds of crickets and glass jars full of twinkly lights that resembled fireflies, the enchanted garden set up was truly a wow! A new surprise was waiting for us with every step we took. A cello player and violinist welcomed us to the main room which was surrounded by some of the best food tasting. The impressive margarita cocktail literally resembled a lava lamp, the mouth-watering mushroom flat bread was heavenly, and the lobster creations and ice cream sundaes looked to be straight out of Michelin star restaurant. The huge lit garden backdrop behind the bar sealed the deal on this magical event. Hats off to the AV company and all the teams involved with giving life to this extraordinary event.”
