Event Date: November 17, 2007
Attendance: 400 guests

As active members of Meeting Professionals, International, Grand Events jumped at the chance to sponsor an event with party planner to the stars, lifestyle expert and living legend, Colin Cowie. The lobby of the Tampa Convention Center was transformed into a chic black and white lounge with furniture, draping and modern floral arrangements. The silent auction area was brought to life with fresh floral arrangements and interesting table displays helping to bring people to the bidding and raise money for the organization.

“Grand Events took a bland lobby and transformed it into a chic, stylish lounge – the exact look we were hoping for – you “Colin-ized” it! I am convinced the reason our silent auction so greatly exceeded our expectations was your unique design of this area! You totally captured our Elegant. Edgy. Extraordinary. theme in your decor!”
