The SIBOS international banking conference in Toronto( Sept. 19-23) had precipitous timing – a crisis looming in international markets with the world’s banking community already scheduled to meet. While teams of ‘financial leaders gathered to do business and shape the future of the financial industry’; teamwork was the order of the day as TK Events produced Clearstream – Deutsche Börse Group’s executive event. As the ‘must attend event’ of the conference, the bar was set high from previous events in Amsterdam, Hong Kong and Australia.
Impeccable teamwork involving constant communication between our crew on the ground at the Convention Centre coordinating transportation, and the event managers at the venue; allowed the evening to remain on a sharp schedule. We faced the challenges of a traffic strapped downtown core and navigated flow around the strict marshalling area; while minutes away, the rest of the event team was in action and poised to greet guests upon arrival.
The weather cooperated as over 160 banking executives took to the patio of the event venue on the shores of Lake Ontario. Toronto and Canada impressed the global audience! From stunning lake views, a local organic menu specially prepared by the Chef and a well-orchestrated, highly polished, custom production never seen before; the demonstration of teamwork was at play. Together with the client and Chef we designed a custom menu to appeal to the international audience and showcase a Taste of Canada. The coup d’état was the completely transformed patio waiting for guests following dinner. We love it when talented people come together!
