Every year the owners of the burger chain, In n Out, host massive family picnics for their employees.  Over the course of two days, we hosted over 10,000 people for a carnival-themed event at the interior field of the Santa Anita Race Track.  Thirteen In n Out food trucks, carnival games with prizes, all of the big rides (including a massive ferris wheel), concessions, entertainment, and we even had puppies!

When the Intercontinental Hotel Los Angeles Downtown opened its doors, it changed the LA Skyline.  The grand opening event hosted more than 800 guests, including city and state officials, dignitaries, business leaders, influences and tastemakers in a progressive event that took place on 5 separate levels, spanning 73 floors. 

The festivities were hosted by LA radio show host, Ellen Kay.  Entertainment included a variety of interactive performance pieces across several satellite stages.  Aerial, dance, and contortion performances kept guests entertained throughout the event.  The evening ended poolside for a glowing dance party.
