WCEP Rang in the New Year with First Ever Public Event

West Coast Event Productions rang in the New Year by hosting their first ever public event at Pure Space in the Pearl District. The New Years in the Pearl party drew a vivacious and full crowd to the 12,500 square foot event venue.

“When I saw the email from WCEP about the NYE party I knew I had to go…West Coast Events has a reputation for producing the most incredible events in Oregon, so when I saw they were hosting a New Year’s Eve party at Pure Space, I knew it was going to be the event not to miss” said attendee Tam Everard.

Guests enjoyed performances from A-Wol aerial artists, dancers from New York, and many took advantage of the available VIP treatment—sipping cocktails from their perch in ultra-lounge seating areas with personal servers.

WCEP pulled out all the stops for the Studio 54 themed New Year’s Eve party. Lighting played a major role to create the club ambiance executed by the WCEP team. Psychedelic designs flashed on circular truss screens on either side of the venue, while DJ Sovern-T kept guests dancing from his look-out on an elevated stage as the performers entertained guests down below. Two truss palm trees framed the DJ stage, which extended out to create a lit holographic runway for guests to hop aboard and show off their moves.

Despite the fact that West Coast Event Productions has been producing and planning events for affluent corporate, nonprofit, wedding, and private clients, for over 30 years, WCEP is just now beginning to explore the opportunity of hosting fun events open to the public, utilizing Pure Space and Flex Space as venues.

We had a great time and look forward to the next event West Coast hosts” said Everard in anticipation of events to come!

Corporate Holiday Event Looks from Yahoo!, Jive, and Puppet Labs

As family friendly affair, Puppet Labs, an IT Automation Software company in Portland, Oregon created a “Hot Chocolate Chemistry Lab” for children attending to whip up their own concoction using different candies, flavors and condiments while wearing lab coats–a neat spin on the traditional hot chocolate bar.

Jive got jiggy with it at their holiday event, incorporating swanky club-like lighting for an ultra cool wintery ambiance. The warm shades of up lighting helped to incorporate a holiday feel, and break away from the silver, blue, and icy tones commonly used for holiday or winter themed events. Yahoo! followed suit with warm, deep red drapery, though also combined traditional winter wonderland hues with blue lighting.
