Opening Reception: The Power of Human Connection January 2023
Hunter Events — one of the top ten Corporate Event planners in San Francisco — hosted an opening night Cocktail Reception in The Lobby Bar of The Claremont Club and Spa, Berkeley, CA
The Reception was the first night of a 3-day annual Conference. What made this reception even more special was this was the first time attendees have all gathered together since January of 2020 when the pandemic hit. Needless to say, it was indeed a joyous and much anticipated occasion. It gave credence to the Power and importance of Human Connection — and — re-connecting. Excited guests from all parts of the United States eagerly joined a group of local attendees for this emotional and heartwarming occasion — the night before their annual Conference was to begin.
COCKTAIL AND MEAL COORDINATION
Guests enjoyed an array of hors d’oeuvres and a selection of fine cocktails throughout the evening. As with all corporate events planned by Hunter, the menu for this reception was carefully crafted and tailored to the Client’s specific needs.
VENUE SEARCH AND PRODUCTION
As one of the best Event Planning companies in San Francisco, Hunter Events puts experience and skill to the test to search and select the finest venues around the world — appropriate to the Client’s unique and specific needs. Located just a few miles from downtown San Francisco, the Claremont Hotel offers large, flexible meeting rooms high atop the scenic Berkeley/Oakland Hills. The hotel’s larger spaces comfortably accommodated all guests during the day-long meetings, and smaller-breakout rooms were offered for more intimate discussions and team building activities. Specialty reception rooms were also available to host guests at the Opening and Closing night Receptions.
At this Opening Night Reception, the guests were greeted at The Claremont Hotel Lobby Lounge & Bar by Conference staff and the Hunter Events team. There, they confirmed their attendance at the Conference, connected with fellow Colleagues and indulged in delicious refreshments.
The guests were also welcome to gather in the The Claremont Hotel Hillary Tenzing Room. Tucked just off the main lobby, this uniquely designed space celebrates the legacies of Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, the first climbers to summit Mt. Everest on May 29, 1953, with one-of-a-kind artifacts and artwork, as well as stunning Bay Views. This finely decorated space was a sophisticated place for guests to relax and mingle, as they prepared for the upcoming Conference Meetings.
Guests at the Opening Night Reception were welcomed to the Conference in a casual and carefree environment, where they were given the opportunity to network and get excited for the Conference Events that lie ahead. Everyone enjoyed the sumptuous appetizers and refreshing beverages, and the chance to network with new and old work acquaintances. But — the best part was being able to reconnect one one one — the way it should be. The Client was pleased with the venue’s hospitality, as well as the outstanding service and Event Planning provided by Hunter Events.
