Corporate Anniversary – location & planning
Recently, Instinct Events and Entertainment were asked to assist our client in celebrating their 20th Corporate Anniversary at the iconic local Melbourne venue, Bobby McGees. The venue was one of the hottest after work clubs in the 80’s and was the perfect backdrop for the night.
Titled “20 years and Still Glowing”, the brief was to give the staff a night to remember with continuous entertainment and engagement.
