Wondering how to make your event stand out in the crowd? Maybe a little improv is the way to go. When Anna Clarke, Regional Field Marketing Manager at LUNA Bar, was planning her event, she knew Greenhouse Loft was the perfect place to hold it. With a ton of natural light streaming in and the adaptability of the indoor and outdoor space, she had been wanting to plan an event here for quite some time and now she had the perfect opportunity.
Anna’s “Empowerment through Improv” event hosted roughly 40 women - thought leaders, business owners, anyone who could benefit from getting away from their daily routine and out of their comfort zone. She worked with Second City and brought in a couple of their trainers to work with this group of women and show them a lighter approach to life.
The group took advantage of Greenhouse Loft’s mid-century furniture and set up comfortable chairs in a circle to promote collaboration. The Second City trainers did a combination of improv acting and written activities. Everyone was moving around, up and out of their seats, and collaborating with others. The energy of the day was undeniable.
With Greenhouse Loft's on-site venue manager handling all of the details, Anna could enjoy the day with the rest of her team. They hosted the first part of their event on one side of the loft and part two was already staged and set for them to easily transition when the time was right. With Arbor right next door, it was easy for them to plan a post-event happy hour to keep the fun going.
They took advantage of our in-house photo services and stepped into our Ultimate Photo Booth to capture the fun of the day. During breaks they took individual portraits and got to take prints home right from the event. They took a dynamic group photo at the end, pictured above, which was a great way to capture the excitement and energy of the day.
“Even though it took place almost two years ago, I still remember the venue, the event and the group of women who were gathered together like it was yesterday. I feel like I left with a whole bunch of new friends”
- Anna Clarke
