Ring of Stars Recognition Event
Corporate Events Management and Production
The people who make up a company are its “Heart and Soul”. Without talented human beings to carry out visionary strategy on the front lines…success is simply theoretical. Being one of the world’s leading service companies, no one understands that more than Aramark. With survival dependent on its more than 270,000 employees, the company is keenly focused on developing the talents of every team member…and rewarding their accomplishments.
Recognition events are a cornerstone of Aramark and EVI’s event production strategy, and the annual “Ring of Stars” is the ultimate expression. Honoring Aramark’s top 250 employees, the 2015 Ring of Stars traveled to the beautiful Arizona desert for a week of recognition, celebration and relaxation.
As with every Aramark event, EVI took full production accountability…from strategic development and project management, to program design and creative media production, to staging and technical, to complete on-site execution.
Honorees were treated to a full complement of activities.
A motivational session provided executive leadership and a guest keynote the opportunity to address the group as one, acknowledging their heroic efforts and encouraging them to climb even higher. To open the session, EVI’s creative team produced a short film titled “Heart and Soul”, a cinematic portrayal and celebration of what it means to make it to the ring.
Pouring fuel on the fire, an imaginative set of live interstitials featuring “The Passing Zone” delivered mind-blowing entertainment and punctuated key messages.
The Ring of Stars Gala and Dinner, complete with a red carpet walk, marked the official induction ceremony. Each recipient took the stage to receive his ring, enveloped by the fervent ovation of fellow honorees. A collection of original media was produced to support each business segment being awarded. With all of the sights and sounds of an Academy Awards night, honorees were recognized with a celebration that will hopefully resonate in their hearts for years to come.
Of course, being in a world-class resort destination, there was plenty of fun-filled recreation to be had as well, and the group opened their imagination to everything the desert had to offer.
Aramark’s Ring of Stars…a fitting tribute to the best of the best…one of the company’s most important events executed with creative and technical excellence by the Aramark and EVI team.
