Verizon Digital Media Services
Marketing case study
Verizon has created one of the most innovative and recognized brand on the globe, so when we were asked to create their first-ever Customer Advisory Board event, we were pumped. We had a lot to do in a short period of time, and we needed to ensure the inaugural event was every bit as engaging, elegant, fun and impressive as their VIP guests would expect.
The inaugural VDMS Deliver Customer Advisory Board was a three-day experience at the Dream Hotel in Hollywood. Select executives from Fortune 500 companies came together to network, share insights and discuss a roadmap for the future.
The first day began with a cocktail event coupled with an interview with EVP & President of Global Media, Marni Walden. Day two was full of content, honest conversations and presentations, wrapping with a private dinner prepared by Chef Jason Fullilove and his team, hosted by Feastly LA. The final day closed with a farewell appreciation breakfast as the VDMS team and invited guests headed back to their respective destinations.
