la vie – vip after pary


The DC Public Education Fund hosts a VIP after party following their annual awards ceremony. We needed to offer a new venue and evening that guests and sponsors would be excited about. We introduced new benefits for sponsors and incorporated them at La Vie, the year’s new venue.


Creating new sponsor benefits to keep them involved. We worked with the client to come up with some new benefits for their highest level sponsors. Those sponsors received exclusive access to the VIP after party, as well as private vignette lounge seating with personal waiter and bartender, champagne tubs, oysters and caviar.

Getting guests out of the ceremony in a timely fashion to move around the corner for the reception. Our staff was stationed at venue exits of the ceremony that took place beforehand. Those guests with specific color wristbands (who were also emailed ahead of time of their route), were directed to La Vie. We also positioned staff outside the two venues to help lead guests.


Our client loved the change of venue and was so excited to introduce it to guests. They received rave reviews all night for F&B, decor and ease of moving from one venue to the next.
