We have all been there. It's concept time and we are dreaming. We have amazing ideas, wonderful drawings, great renderings .... and then reality hits. Something gets in the way of that original vision.That's why Kate Brack and Katie Rogers came back so happy from a recent production at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas! For once, all elements fell into place! Their dreams turned into reality.
Kate Brack: “The client went to extraordinary lengths to give us creative freedom for this event. Whatever it took to make the vision into a reality, they were behind us 100%. From the beginning they supported and trusted our direction. As a result, our process gave them the confidence that from concept to opening night we would achieve their dream. It truly was the extraordinary working partnership between our team, our client and our vendors that made this event an overall success!”
Here the images that tell the story:
Bubble, the center bar.
Al Dente, Italian Restaurant
Katie Rogers: "This evening was an important event for our clients, and with this in mind they really gave us the right tools to make this happen. Once the overall design and “theme” was agreed upon, we had close to nine months to make this happen. The bulk of this was spent in the planning stages, so it really afforded us the opportunity to “get it right”. Numerous renderings and floor plans were created, and we were able to really research and source our materials and we weren’t forced to use “Plan B product” because of wait times caused by unavailability."
Chocolat, the dessert restaurant.
Rare: the steakhouse.
Rendering (named Prime):
(we renamed it because we learned that a competing venue actually has a restaurant named Prime)
