In 2022, corporations will continue to lean toward live events that have a mindful, health-conscious vibe. This is very true in California as corporations dip their proverbial toe back in the water of live events. I know that rules differ from state to state and I appreciate those that California has in place, as do my clients. By following them, these companies are sending an important message that they care about their guests by paying attention to mask mandates, rules on social distancing, number of invitees and vaccination requirements.
In line with taking a compassionate stance is the interest to hold events that are authentic to the venue and the locale. They are keeping the design and the flavors fresh and clean. To this end, the Ojai Valley Inn is a perfect venue with its gorgeous grounds, farmhouse and ranch settings and spa overview.
At this multi-day corporate event, we splashed natural designs — with no sharp edges — created with light on the exterior of the space, added modern, clean lighting, and a color palette designed to bring joy. At the reception event, we amplified the modern serenity of the space and on the final night, the farm-to-table look was a fun, light way to create a stress-free environment.
