Rendez-vous Canada (RVC) is Canada’s premier international tourism marketplace, which takes place in a different Canadian city each year and features a four-day series of marketplace style events, all culminating in a “host night” finale event. This year, Calgary was awarded the opportunity to play host city and welcome over 1,700 international tourism buyers to the great white north, and Boom was given the opportunity by Travel Alberta and Tourism Calgary to produce the host night event.
Calgary features five star dining, hundreds of musical and cultural stars, and an unparalleled view of the northern hemisphere’s pristine starry skies. With this in mind, our team worked with Daughter (another Calgary star) to come up with the event identity “All the Stars”. Over the next few months, this identity was slowly brought to life as we envisioned the experience guests would have as they travelled through The National Music Centre, exploring seven floors, each themed and decorated by One West to mimic Alberta’s varying scenery.
86 separate contractors, vendors, suppliers, entertainers, and event partners came together to show the world the best of Calgary, and the result was a delight to witness. Gorgeous lighting highlighted the stunning architecture of the building; Albertan-inspired cocktails and canapés captivated; incredible local talent entertained on every floor, and ambient video of our province’s natural offerings met guests at every turn. Take a look at the photos below for a glimpse into the evening!
