Accomplished Under 40
Idaho Business Review
The Accomplished Under 40 event recognizes 40 individuals under the age of 40 for their accomplishes in work, life and philantrophy. Again, our attendance grew and have set new standards for Corporate Award Shows.
This event targets the young professional age demographic and encourages a networking environment. One of the problems we have faced in the past with this event and for us many like this, is reaching the "young professional" demographic and truly engaging them. Traditionally, we invite this group to a formal sit down dinner and then make them painfully watch an hour long presentation. No matter how well executed the on stage production might be, this demographic is ADHD! We want excitment, new things, people to talk to, great drinks and atmosphere.
Solution: We created an event in a unique setting, the Zoo. Zoo Boise has a newly renovated African Plains area, with Giraffes and Lions and really great natural decor. We created a reception style, food stations with different styles of dinner, walk around event. We brought in a new technology called SlideKlowd to engage our younger audience via smart phone and tablet to gain feedback, twitter like responses for our honorees and most importantly engagement. The technology allows us to get to know our audience better, find out what they are interested in the moment and capture their emotional responses.
Outcome: We had an overwhelming response from our "young professional!" They loved the style of event we brought to them. They were engaged, overheard conversation saying how great this event was. We basically had to kick them out at the end of the night. The networking was priceless, and people loved the food! I'd have to say that we set a high standard for this demographic and can't wait to continue to wow them.
A Few Good Words:
"Great event, unique, innovative, fun, rewarding and the best I've been to all year, I've been reflecting all day what a great time I had, you and your team did a great job organizing this fantastic event"
