We were so thrilled when we were asked to help with Lake County Partners‘ Big Event again this year. The team at LCP is a blast to work with, and the event has so many interesting components to keep their guests engaged during the early morning meeting.
The Big Event took place in late June at the Marriott Lincolnshire, a wonderful space for a corporate gathering (and social events, too!). We were grateful to work with Brad from Cobalt Photography again this year to capture the event energy and audience engagement.
As guests filtered in throughout the early part of the morning, they were invited to join a networking salon with pastries and coffee. Student musicians from Midwest Young Artists, a proud organization from within Lake County, played a selection of music to complement the coffee and conversation.
Soon it was time for guests to transition into the Grand Marquee Pavilion for breakfast and the speaking portion of the event. Each place setting was set with informative collateral designed by a5 Branding + Digital, who also designed all the signage and marketing pieces surrounding the event. We loved how they incorporated a collection of faces to represent the diversity and talent that exists within Lake County. AVP was there to provide Audio/Visual help for the day; they did a fantastic job!
The speakers chosen for the morning’s program covered a variety of topics, from economic forecasting to the factors that lead to attracting and retaining younger residents to join the community.
This year’s Big Event was a great success, and it’s always inspiring to see how this tight-knit community of business leaders connect to ensure the businesses and residents of Lake County feel supported and inspired to thrive!
