Tigris Personnel Proudly Hosts an Event Staff Party for the Holiday
Our team of temporary staff work hard for us all year round, so what better way to thank them than with an event staff party. This year, we decided to throw the bash at the brand new and beautiful Fiction Nightclub on Dec. 9.
Tigris arranged for line by-pass and free entry for each person attending the event staff party along with 2 complimentary drink tickets. Although our entire roster wasn’t able to make it, those who did, had a blast!
An Event Staff Party to Remember
Tigris doesn’t want to be known for all work and no play, so we love this time of year. We appreciate the efforts of our roster, who work hard for us, event in and event out. We love being able to give them the opportunity to let loose and get to know other event staff on the roster – outside of our events and programs.
Over the past 9 years, Tigris Personnel has been happy to host an event staff party annually in Toronto including:
Il Fornello Dinner in Dec/04
Lot 332 in Dec/05
Embassy in Dec/06 (the first year we went national!). We rented out the nightclub from 7-10pm and featured a magician, hypnotist and catering prior to the nightclub opening up for regular party go-ers
The Swimming Pool casino themed Christmas Party in Dec/07 complete with an inflatable money machine, casino entertainment, raffle tickets and prizing
Backyard BBQ in Aug/08
Mystery Entertainment Northern Lights Boat Cruise in Aug/09
Bar 1812 at the Thompson Hotel Dec/10
Easy & the Fifth Dec/11
Fiction Nightclub Dec/12
Who knows what next years event staff party will look like – BUT, we want to hear from you! If you have any idea for an amazing event staff party that will guarantee maximum attendance, we’d love to hear your idea.
Event Logistics for a VIP Experience!
Tigris Personnel teamed up with PR & publicity powerhouse Terrain Marketing to coordinate the event logistics for two impressive VIP Thank You Nights on Nov. 8 & 15. Tigris was contacted in August to lend their event planning expertise to the production value of the Moulin Rouge themed corporate dinners.
Over the course of three months, Tigris sourced all of the elements relating to staging, lighting and decor, as well as procuring singers, musicians, DJ’s and Burlesque troupes in both Calgary and Toronto. Although not formally hired for venue coordination, Tigris was heavily involved with this aspect of the contract as well, willingly taking on extra event logistics to transfer the Calgary function to a new location when the original date proved problematic for the client.
In addition to show production, Tigris was also responsible for such event logistics as sourcing memorable giveaways, photographers with onsite printing capabilities of branded souvenir photos, hiring and costuming Moulin Rouge themed promotional models. Tigris Personnel also booked event management in both cities to further assist with any onsite responsibilities such as checking in guests, providing their table numbers, cuing performers and distributing photos and giveaways at the end of the evening.
Enjoying the Execution of the Event Logistics
These two events were thrown for RONA’s most valuable contractors who spend $50,000 per year or more. This included 40 contractors and their guests from each city as well as RONA managers and head office executives. Guests got to enjoy a cocktail party, themed photo shoot, 4 course meal with an open bar complimented by ambient dinner music and the grand finale – the Moulin Rouge show! All of the guests who participated in the event were genuinely impressed with the event(s) and were touched by RONA’s gratitude for their business.
Both evenings were tremendous to be a part of – and Tigris relished the opportunity to lend their expertise to Terrain and RONA! For more photos highlighting elements from the contribution of our event logistics check out the photo gallery of our website.
Scientists predict that we may lose half of all species on Earth by the end of this century. Our oceans will be affected most profoundly, losing five times more species than will be lost on land. As we go about our daily lives, the sixth mass extinction in Earth’s history is taking place – but it’s the first caused by a single species: humans.
Pollution, habitat loss, overfishing, global climate change and ocean acidification all contribute to this catastrophic loss. These non-discriminating forces threaten extraordinary and irreplaceable species, from the microscopic plankton responsible for most of the oxygen we breathe, to the great singing humpback whales. Although thousands of species of plants, animals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and arthropods are lost every year, the Holocene Extinction is notable for the disappearance of large mammals, also known as megafauna, which have dominated the top of the food chain.
I don’t disagree that human issues are important but in spite of the organizations that exist to protect animals, it’s still not enough to give a voice to creatures that otherwise have none. With a global population approaching 7 billion, the planet cannot keep up with the demands of human consumption. Animals are used, abused, exploited and eaten every day, all around the world. They almost always take a backburner to human wants and needs that are motivated by greed, money or entertainment. I truly believe that not nearly enough is done to respect and protect the other life forms we inhabit this world with.
As Earth Day approaches, I can only hope that it brings some much needed attention to some human habits that need to change. Most of the issues are so critical and overwhelming, it is easy for some people to turn a blind eye and ignore them rather than face them – but if we, as a species, work together we can make the changes necessary to save the planet – and ourselves.
