Last week we had the pleasure of hosting the very first of our FMAV Webinar Series. In this month's webinar, we were joined by Trevor Lui (International Centre), Stefani Dunn (Decor & More), and Jamie Richardson (FMAV) to take everyone through how they can elevate their corporate Holiday party with great eats, decor, and new technology. These are just a few of the top trends in decor, catering, and technology we talked about.
Trade shows can be intimidating events. For both planners and suppliers they bring a unique set of logistical challenges and require an extra level of coordination as you work with all of the exhibitors, fellow suppliers, and the venue to coordinate a very complex event all while staying focused on the attendees experience and making sure that they get the most out of their time on the trade show floor.

Sometimes trends take a while to set in, other times they happen almost overnight. This Summer, Nintendo and Niantic (creators of Ingress) launched their new augmented reality mobile game, Pokemon Go, here in Canada. As I’m sure you’ve learned by now Pokemon Go sends users out into the world to collect and battle cartoon creatures in an effort to “catch them all”. While augmented reality (AR) isn't exactly new the massive success of the game has shown how powerful and engaging a tool it can be.
