Spring is just around the corner and there are a lot of fresh things happening at Eventus! But before we hop ahead, we wanted to share what we’ve been up to lately.
At our Riverside space we hosted YouTube Avenues, an exclusive event for YouTube’s content creators. It was very exciting to partner with a large company like YouTube! We worked with them to utilize the space in a unique way that leveraged technology. Working with AVL Creative, we added amazing LED video walls to the space. YouTube also brought in several filming sets for guests to test out making video shorts in, and the presentation was live streamed in other rooms in the space for guest overflow.
We were honored to sponsor and host an event for the non-profit organization Beyond Basics at our Riverside space. Beyond Basics works to achieve literacy for everyone, transforming the lives of students and creating stronger communities through an intensive tutoring program that helps students achieve grade-level movement and beyond in reading.
Ground broke on our second space at 211 W. Fort Street! Located in the heart of Detroit this space boasts floor to ceiling windows, views of downtown Detroit, refinished concrete floors, and Industrial finishes. As we go into 2023, we will continue to make improvements in the space and look forward to hosting events there in the months to come!
E3 Detroit recorded one of their bands, Free Lance, in the Riverside space. We love seeing how versatile the space can be! E3 Detroit is an events and entertainment company specializing in weddings, corporate events, and manages a handful of bands as well.
We attended the National Association of Catering and Events (NACE) Holiday party! The event brought together individuals from NACE and the International Live Events Association (ILEA) to celebrate both organizations 2022 accomplishments. Eventus founder, Kalie Zerbst, sat on the board of NACE in 2022 and was proud to play a role in bringing the event to life.
