Love Struck, A Select Wedding Show

This weekend was Love Struck, A Select Wedding Show! PJ Hummel & Company took it on as the designers of the show, and the event was truly stunning! Instead of 8' tall banjo cloth stalls at normal trade shows, we made our walls 16' tall with white satin drape - and the room was filled with gorgeous canopies! Under the canopies, vendors could be found along with an attendee lounge with our kick-back line of furniture, vintage Persian rugs and rustic charm. We provided the stage treatment in our new blueberry satin drape along with black spandex chair covers with peacock ties. Out in the foyer we embellished the space with over-sized birdcages (to match the logo of the show!) and provided a "Grooms Lounge" with our brown leather furniture.

2012 ECA Award Winners!

Last night was The Emerald City Applause Awards by ISES, and what a night! We won not one but THREE awards!

Best Event Marketing Campaign
for GOG at PAX Prime

With marketing goals such as sharing the concept of their company on a brand new platform, creating mass media attention, and cutting even with the cost of the event; was able to exceed these goals and steal the show at the largest gaming tradeshow in the United States. This was accomplished not by the traditional gamer aesthetic of bright, large, and loud; but through two very different approaches rarely used at gamer tradeshows: scent and nostalgia. Our team played a key role in this exciting achievement.

Best Event for a Corporation Budget $25,001-$100,000
for Night At The Museum

‘A Night at the Museum’ in the Museum of Natural Mystery was a progressive Halloween event designed for multi-age guests at the Microsoft Commons. The event started two weeks before Halloween, gradually morphing The Commons into a haunted Museum of Natural Mystery. The climax occurred on Halloween day with ‘A Night at the Museum’ inspired Haunted House built inside a four room meeting space. As attendees wandered through thematic galleries, displays came to life (with actors from Clowns Unlimited)while sensory accents created an ambience of suspense. Our goal was to create & deliver an exciting and unexpected experience following a believable yet enchanted storyline to an anticipated 15,000 guests.

• Best Industry Organization Team Effort Budget $25,001-$100,000
for Wizard of Oz

A combination of Hollywood Lighting, Blue Danube Productions, & PJ Hummel & Company transformed St. Joesph School's auditorium intro a magical Wizard of Oz Fantasy world for their annual fundraiser!

2012 Cascadia in Tacoma!

Big news for Tacoma, the 2012 MPI Cascadia Educational Conference is coming! March 4th - 6th "The HeART Of Your Meeting" themed event will offer: 60 hours of quality education, hands-on experience with cutting edge technology, a tradeshow that combines new technology tools, a Hosted Buyer program, & the best networking of the year with over 250 meeting professionals in the Northwest area at one meeting!

Of course PJ Hummel & Company is getting in on the action by designing a one-of-a-kind spectacle ~ the "Night at the Museum Progressive Gala!" We expect attendees of the Cascadia Conference to have never attended an event this wild and intriguing as the gala develops around them from gallery to gallery ending with "A Naughty Night on the Nile!"

Here's the back story...

A Night At The Museum
A Progressive Gala Dinner

A magical exhibit from the “Museum of Natural Mystery” has just arrived! Installation of the exhibits has begun and will culminate on the night of March 5th with a special costume gala called, “A Night at the Museum.”

As the story goes, an Egyptian tomb was discovered and brought to Tacoma to showcase the curiosity of this ancient world. In doing so, the excavators and moving team have stirred up much more trouble than they had bargained for! The mummies have been disturbed, and a crate has been tipped over – unleashing a ghostly spell on the rest of the museum!

Come see The Museum & all it’s attractions: The Hall of Statues, The Ancient Rome Collection, The Hall of the Exotic Jungle, The Wild Wild West Collection, The Lewis & Clark Expedition Gallery, & The Ancient Egyptian Exhibit!

Hope to see you there!
