Clubs, parties, beaches. These are all words that are usually synonymous with the CITY OF MIAMI. But the city of Miami has been garnering a different kind of attention lately…and as a locally based TOTAL EVENT MANAGEMENT AND EXPERIENTIAL BRAND MARKETING AGENCY; KONCEPT EVENTS could not be more proud to call this city home.
The latest explosion that has thrust Miami center stage in the global spotlight, is the CREATIVE ARTS MOVEMENT. While our young city has great roots in artistry, Miami has become the modern equivalent of such cities as New York, Paris and Hong Kong. Thanks to recent investments from the likes of theNEW WORLD SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA to the PEREZ ART MUSEUM MIAMI (PAMM), Miami is demonstrating that it is more than just a party town. On the heels of one of the art world’s most illustrious events, ART BASEL MIAMI, KE wanted to recognize our fair city and share with you the top reasons why you should not only bring your next event to Miami, but showcase some of the elements that you can thread throughout your next corporate meeting. These will WOW your guests and create a memorable and unique experience that they will distinguish from all of the other incentive trips and corporate functions they’ve attended. Here is our Art Basel Miami HIT LIST from 2014:
With the neighborhood of Wynwood recognized as home to Miami’s hot and trendy art scene, we’d be remiss not to point out one of our tried and true favorites and really the foundation of this eclectic artist’s hub. Since the movement of graffiti art’s inception, Wynwood Walls has found a way to educate and inspire people from all over the world and turn what was previously considered a vandal’s past time, into a way to beautify a neighborhood and inspire Miamians and tourists on a daily basis. “The Walls” commissioned artists are constantly changing the face of the city and provide a FRESH experience with every visit. During Basel ’14 the walls experienced over 14 transitions from a variety of respected artists.
In a city heavily influenced by the beaches and close proximity to island life, rum is a staple spirit in specialty beverages. Fortunately Miami is home to an AWARD WINNING RUM DISTILLERY that not only can offer tours and tastings, but is also in the heart of the art and design district. During Basel ’14 “Club Rum” hosted local artists in a benefit for “Art 4 Apes.” This space served as part gallery, part charitable effort, and total corporate event inspiration!
Interactive art has become an incredible source of entertainment and is also an opportunity to share a meaningful message. This can be used in any corporate event to really capture your attendee’s attention and get their creative juices flowing. Basel ’14 demonstrated everything from dance, interactive fine arts, technology, and music…sometimes all at once! The PAMM and the New World Center are both excellent venues that are easily amenable to a variety of functions.
