Letter from the President The 2019 North American International Auto Show certainly kept us busy! The Event Planning Team at Star Trax was fortunate enough to work with one of our clients on their fantastic Charity Preview at Aloft Detroit at the David Whitney Building. The Spring 2019 Plan It! Magazine highlights this incredible night and showcases a few of the creative and interactive experiences throughout the evening. We created an event for our client that fully embraced and showcased the excitement surrounding Detroit and the Auto Show. Take a peek inside our magazine and see for yourself. One of our goals throughout the year is to keep you well-informed with current

Companies regularly plan and host events, and it is important to always change things up and introduce new experiences. The need for additional interactive entertainment and activities is quickly growing within the corporate events world. We have done the research and put together a “one-stop-shop” which can be found on the last eight pages of our Spring magazine. If you don’t see what you are looking for – it’s just because we ran out of room. We have it all … just ask! Thank you to those who have become new clients (then friends) through the use of this magazine. We love when we get notes telling us that our staff and service was “game changing” for them. No matter the celebration, meeting, or gathering – we are moment makers! Please reach out and let’s meet for coffee (or sushi) – whatever you prefer! Geoff Kretchmer President, Star Trax Events

mobile party solutions e often come across “the perfect venue” for an event … only to later find out that the site lacks kitchen space and sufficient resources needed for catering. While we are always able to find warmers, utility racks, and other basic catering essentials, we could never find a fully-equipped, rentable kitchen. Until we met Kristin Brochert, owner of Trailer Events. Trailer Events has made it possible for us to bypass what could have been a major event restriction or venue deal breaker and turn the space into a state-of-the-art facility. Originally in the restoration business, Kristin offered a solution for anyone planning a renovation project or an emergency situation that required immediate restoration: a mobile kitchen. Her clients were mostly schools, summer camps, and nursing homes. Word got around about these mobile units and it soon became obvious that the private events world could also utilize her brilliant idea of a mobile kitchen. Thus, Trailer Events was born. We had our solution to hosting events in fantastic venues with little or no kitchen space! Trailer Events offers a state-of-the-art commercial grade, NSF Approved, and fully licensed mobile kitchen. The kitchen has a functional floor plan design and includes the necessary equipment to prepare and serve food in a clean, safe, mobile environment.

As Kristin’s business grew, clients began asking for a specialty trailer for tailgating. State-of-the-art and equipped with a stainless-steel refrigerator, microwave, outside gas grill, generator, and private restroom, these specialty trailers offer a convenient mobile party solution. The trailers are hi-tech with an HDTV monitor, remote, satellite, and Bluetooth capabilities. In response to increased demand for mobile units, Kristin has added executive restroom trailers to her arsenal. We were fascinated by the beauty and functionality of these units. With separate entrances for men and women, the restrooms have private stalls, stainless trim mirrored vanities, hand sinks with warm water, LED lighting, and ventilation complete with heating and cooling systems in place. You never know when you’ll be hosting an event in need of additional restrooms. Kristin and her knowledgeable staff have taken the stumbling blocks out of hosting events. Their mobile kitchens, specialty trailers, and executive restroom trailers can be used for any event, whether it’s a sophisticated corporate gathering, private occasion, tailgate party, or backyard BBQ. Trailer Events is fun to work with and passionate about perfection and customer satisfaction. They have you covered from A to Z and will certainly impress you with their capabilities at your next event!

OUR TEAM IS ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR WHAT IS TRENDING IN THE WORLD OF EVENTS. THE BEST GATHERINGS GIVE GUESTS SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT LONG AFTER THE PARTY IS OVER. There are so many moving parts and elements that can be recreated even if the event’s audience and mission is the same, year after year. From room layout and seating to event theme and design, the goal is to create interest. Active food presentations and interactive entertainment options create energy and excitement throughout your event. It always helps to have dedicated planners on your side. Our Team has put together a list of hot topics for 2019...

WELLNESS

seems to be at the top of many

event goers’ minds. What your guests eat and how they move is a priority. It’s a good thing that vegetables have taken over as a FUN addition to menus. Brussel sprouts can be skewered, cauliflower can be flash fried, and who doesn’t love tomato soup in a shot glass?! Offer activities that get guests out of their seats. Events should allow for movement and interaction. Choose active experiences that encourage participation. Get moving!

EVENT TECHNOLOGY

should make your

guests want to put down their phones. Visual effects can be added anywhere: floors, ceilings, walls, and furniture. Presentations don’t have to be static and bland - keep your guests engaged visually. Lighting, digital technology, and branding add the greatest impact when transforming an event space or creating a visual display.

CREATIVE SEATING DESIGNS can add interaction and conversation. Eight guests can sit at a round dinner table or around a coffee table on couches and occasional chairs. Design your soft-seating with personalized table wraps and customized throw pillows. When the setting you create is more relaxed, your guests will have more fun! Centerpieces don’t have to be placed on the table - they can be hung from above. Food stations do not have to surround the exterior of an event – they can be on moving carts and placed throughout the space.

INSTAGRAM WORTHY PHOTO OPS are a huge draw for millennials who are looking for elements that are far from ordinary. Offer custom photo opportunities, add statement pieces, and be clever! Include a working jukebox to your 50’s Diner-themed party. A graffiti-outfitted event could have someone

SHAKE THINGS UP - BE BOLD Give your guests something to see and talk about! Our team of event planners would love to brainstorm with you to help create an amazing event AND an awesome experience!

decorating on-site! Custom Nike Elite-style socks can be created at your sports-themed celebration. An 80’s party is not complete without an arcade that includes a multi-player giant Pac-Man. A visual statement experience is important – think WOW factor!

PHOTOGRAPHY f e at u r e

Months and months of planning every detail. Millions of emails. Lots of calls. Spreadsheet after spreadsheet. One Pinterest page and then another. The event is finally here – all of your hard work is in front of your eyes. In a blink, it's over. You celebrate the moment as long as you can – and then – your pictures arrive! Our events live on forever through the images taken by creative photographers. Hiring a photographer will be one of your best investments. With a phone, anyone can take pictures. But a schooled photographer knows where to be and when to be there, and will always capture the smallest details that otherwise would have been missed. Choose wisely. Here are some of our favorites.

ERIK ROUSH photography

Erik Roush / roushphotography.com / 248.496.9401 / erikroushphoto@gmail.com Photography is my life. Anyone can point and shoot – I am always looking for the priceless moments that your family will treasure forever. I want you to look back on the images and not just see the event but feel it as well. The best part is that you get to enjoy yourself and I get to capture every little detail.

JUSTIN MUNTER photography

Justin Munter / www.justinmunterphoto.com / 248.245.5925 / justin@justinmunterphoto.com Photographs are a gateway to our past. They tell stories about wonderful moments. Stories about where we have been and with whom. Stories about our loved ones gone too soon – they will be the first things we look to in times of comfort. They are our memories. My role as a photographer is to help create your memories with you. It is a roll I am honored with every day I pick up my camera.

MASSERMAN photography

Brian Masserman / massermanphotography.com / 248.365.4014 / massermanphoto@gmail.com For over a quarter of a century, I have worked in a career that I am deeply passionate about. I enjoy capturing life’s greatest moments, knowing that the pictures I’ve captured make a lasting and positive impression. The greatest compliments I receive, time after time, are: “We are so happy with our pictures and your professionalism that we want to use your services again!” or “I was referred by a friend who told me they were very pleased with your work.”

PAUL STOLOFF photography

Paul Stoloff / www.paulstoloff.photo / 248.207.4678 / paul@paulstoloff.photo The three main considerations when hiring a photographer for your special event are style, price and personality. Of these, the most important, yet most difficult to assess is the personality of your photographer. At Paul Stoloff Photography, we immerse ourselves into your event and celebrate with you, leveraging the technical capabilities of digital photography and creative lighting to create bright and colorful images you’ll cherish for generations, all at a reasonable cost.

RON LIEBERMAN photography

Ron Lieberman / www.liebermanphotography.com / 248.706.0100 / ron@liebermanphotography.com At the age of 14, I began as my father’s photography assistant. I loved every minute of capturing life’s most precious moments and it has been my passion ever since. Throughout the years, I have always stayed true to what is new and on trend. Our clients take so much time perfecting every intimate event detail. It’s my job to capture all the beauty and heartfelt emotions for you to treasure for a lifetime. Most importantly, it’s done with grace and kindness.

On one of the busiest nights in the D – the 2019 Detroit Auto Show– and with many competing charity preview events, it is always a challenge to create new engaging environments to attract attendees. Setting the tone from the very beginning of the event, we transported guests into another realm – Cirque in the City. Greeted at valet with a Flame Show, 300 attendees were led through a VIP tunnel of sparklers directly to a beautiful model in a Champagne Skirt, before arriving at registration.

On the second level of our venue, guests were introduced to a modern, new-age take on Cirque. Black draping and furniture heightened the drama while touches of gold introduced a subtle elegance to the evening. Guests were treated to a unique dinner experience by candlelight with live centerpieces that brought the theme to life! Our ring leader & interactive robot kept the dance floor packed all night, while the custom Vogue photo booth captured the excitement in the air. Custom swag was passed at every corner and the interactive entertainment and experiences left our guests wanting more! EVENT PLANNER : STAR TRAX ADVISORY TEAM SHANNON MCCONNELL & JEN AJLOUNY

frequently asked questions...

answered!

Unless you are a party planning pro, you can count on having an endless amount of questions while planning an event. Should I hire a planner? How do I choose the right photographer? Should I have a seat for every guest? What’s a new fun dessert? How do I know what size linens I need? This is just the beginning. My company, Party Assurance, has been answering questions for our clients since 1994. What began as an extra hand to mothers of the bride, has turned into a full team of on-site, day-of coordinators that have your (the host’s) best interest at heart. Our services begin weeks prior and continues until our van is unloaded at your home at the end of the night! We regularly compliment full service event planners AND are hired by families planning milestone occasions. Our list of services is endless. All of your hard work, up until the big day, will be handed over to a professional who is managing all the moving parts just the way you would expect. Pat Blackwell, Party Assurance

Affairs to Remember / Iva Harrison

Lieberman Photography / Ron Lieberman

What is new, fresh and trendy? By attending the Special Event & Catersource shows and The Knot and Wedding Wire webinars, we stay on top of what's in style. Our clients are choosing less fussy, more organic, natural earth-friendly linens. Matte textures are in, shiny sequins are out.

What are your prices? Every event is unique. We try to create an option that will work with the clients' budget.

Alpha Amusements / Chris Pascaretti How much power do we need to run our games? Each game is the equivalent to running a small computer. We recommend having 3-5 amps available per game, however, we will work with the venues closely to make sure there are no power issues. Dapper Dan Magical Entertainment Dan Sperling When is the best time to offer strolling magic during an event? Strolling magic entertainment works best during cocktails and appetizers. It can be done during dinner, but this is often disruptive to the guests trying to enjoy their meal. Detroit Marriott Troy / Kristin Norris Are you willing to customize a menu? Our Culinary Team would be delighted to customize a menu to fit your wants and needs - from special dietary requests to cultural specialties. Our food and service is absolutely impeccable. DSO / Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center Stephanie McClung How old is Orchestra Hall? We are so excited to say that 2019 is Orchestra Hall’s Centennial! We think she looks pretty good for 100 years, and we are thrilled to have specialty programming for this celebration! Garden Theater / Amy Ancevski Do we have to use in-house catering or are we able to bring in our own caterer? You have the option to utilize our in-house catering company or choose from a list of our preferred catering vendors. There is no fee to bring in one of our preferred catering vendors.

SHE Clothing Company / Sharon Eisenshtadt What makes being styled at SHE unique? Clients shop SHE when they’re looking to achieve a personal sense of style that radiates personal confidence. We believe that you can only find this unique level of personal attention in our boutique environment. Star Trax Events / Shannon McConnell How many dancers should I add to my party? Dancers increase the interaction and energy level on the dance floor, keeping your guests involved in the fun. We recommend one dancer for every 35 children. Star Trax Events / Becca Schlussel Do I need lighting? Lighting is a must. The event ambience and tone are set through the warmth and feel of the lighting. Suburban Collection Showplace / Colleen McGrail How big of a room do we need? Based on your guest count, we have three different ballrooms that can be transformed into various configurations to make your event as unique as your honoree! Top That Event / Cassie Lewis Where do I start in the design process? We like to sit down with each client and develop a timeline for every step of the planning process. These checklists ensure everything is accounted for, ultimately curbing much of the stress that leads up to one’s special day. Together, we make sure every detail is beautiful and perfect. YoMobile / Scott Duncan Do you serve frozen yogurt at private events? Our frozen yogurt truck is perfect for any type of event. With dozens of toppings, we can make the sweetest addition to your next gathering.

stuff we all get ( and love ) Guests are always wondering if there will be a party favor. It’s another fun way to be creative with your event’s slogan or theme. Personalized wearables are always a hit. Guests also love beach towels, blankets and even winter hats. For an added interactive entertainment element, guests can even personalize swag on-site. This year we have seen phone accessories,

socks, ear phones and sneakers! Don’t forget fun food too! From donuts in custom boxes to monogrammed macarons, your guests will be talking about your event’s souvenir for years to come! Nothing beats a good candy station! It is a great take away that is fun and can be personalized to each guests' tastes! Colleen McGrail, Suburban Collection Showplace On-site screen printing is this season’s hottest take-home. We can print on any article of clothing with four customizable screens. Imagine cool, personalized wearables printed in front of your eyes. Harris Van Cleef, Star Trax Events Photo souvenirs that guests can take on site are by far my favorite giveaway. They will remind you of the event for years to come. Ron Lieberman, Lieberman Photography We love anything personalized! Amy Ancevski, Garden Theater I hear from MANY friends and family that the “smiley face” beach towels we gave out for our son’s Bar Mitzvah 12 years ago are STILL enjoyed and in use! Dan Sperling, Dapper Dan Magical Entertainment

Justin Munter Photography

I received a lead crystal heart shaped box that the bride put Hershey’s Kisses in for her female guests. I utilize that box to this day and think of the bride every time I see it. Kristin Norris, Detroit Marriott Troy Create a fun store at your event! At a recent party, we supplied water bottles, basketballs, and shirts to be airbrushed on-site. The guests were able to choose and take home exactly what they wanted.

Blaine Siesser Photography

Jen Ajlouny, Star Trax Events Two favorites that I have seen this year. First, guests were invited to a ‘succulent station’ and given freedom to create individualized plants to be taken home after the party. Then, I attended a wedding where the couple allowed each guest to leave with a pizza in a custom box which could be devoured on the way home. Cassie Lewis, Top That Event
