Arrangers Destination Management Company has been selected as one of the top three finalists in the category of Best Achievement in Logistics by Special Event Magazine for the annual Gala Awards. The awards will be held January 30, 2009 in San Diego, California.
Arrangers submitted their award entry for a program that was operated in conjunction with the Democratic National Convention, held August 2008 in Denver, Colorado. The award category, Best Achievement in Logistics, is based on the program’s objectives, complexity and noteworthy challenges and how those were overcome during execution. Here is a short synopsis of the award entry:
On August 25, 2008 during the Democratic National Convention our client hosted an event for 3,300 guests including dignitaries, Senators and celebrities which featured the launch of their “green” products followed by an intimate concert with Willie Nelson. The event went off without a hitch however, eleven days before the program, our client was asked to move their event because of logistical conflicts with Barack Obama’s acceptance speech the following day. Working tirelessly around the clock, we were forced to scrap a year’s worth of planning and start from scratch.
