From the 10th to the 12th of January, PLANIT Events attended the amazing Special Events Show in California. The show was certainly an eye opening experience for PLANIT and provided the team with lots of insights into upcoming event trends for 2017.

The two days consisted of over 200+ sessions and over 200+ amazing speakers. Over 5000+ event attendees attended the show. PLANIT Events are so lucky to have been a part of such a successful show.

Speaking to many industry leaders and exhibitors PLANIT gained some great insights and ideas. Many of our ideas have inspired some of our current events and future planned events to come.

It was exciting to get to listen to Mr. Brain Acheson President of VIP Events Inc. as well as David Anderson Founding Partner of The Eventive Group. These industry leaders are an inspiration to any event planner or event company.

The product showcase hall was definitely one of PLANIT Events favourites. The well-dressed tables by Arena Americas provided us with endless amounts of inspiration for all of our tabletop events to come. The surprise box by Flutter Fetti was certainly something we had never seen before. It was confetti taken to the next level! The Giant Led Foosball with 12 people was a very good idea by Party Pals, especially for corporate events.

These are just some of the many things PLANIT saw at the show. We can’t wait to share our ideas and inspiration with our clients and we especially can’t wait for next years Special Event Show 2018.
