Award honors excellence in special event planning.

Impact Unlimited, a leading provider of brand communications for events, exhibits, and meetings worldwide, took home the gold for the Special Event Planning - Seminar/Workshop category at the 33rd Annual Jasper Awards on October 5, 2007. The awards dinner was hosted by the Jersey Shore Public Relations and Advertising Association (JSPRAA) and was held at the Robert Meyner Reception Center in Holmdel, N.J. Impact Unlimited won the award for their Re:Think Convention 06 entitled "Food for Thought… Inspiration for Action" seminar.

Gold Jasper Awards are presented for entries with the highest score in its category.

"This award is a great honor for us," said President of Impact Unlimited, Ken Payne. "It gives testament to our innovative approach as well as to our strong commitment to our clients and the industry."

Impact Unlimited invited clients to take a step back from the hectic day-to-day routine and brainstorm some big picture issues facing today's event industry. Impact named the event Re:Think and the theme extended across every aspect of the event. From the venue's design to the unconventional speakers to the technologies on display, everything about Re:Think was designed to inspire attendees to find new, creative ways to approach their jobs.
"We developed a visual campaign that captured the spirit of thinking outside the box," said Mr. Payne. "Our visual strategy set the stage for creative thought by transforming the normally staid and corporate meeting facilities into an environment reminiscent of a new age circus set/tent."

Re:Think 06 was as much about substance as it was about style. The day's agenda included:

  • Thought provoking presentations from fairly unconventional speakers, each of whom has virtually redefined their profession through innovation and creative thought.
  • A technology showcase highlighting the newest products and technologies for meeting and event professionals.
  • A presentation on the results of a focus group offering valuable insights into physicians' views of major medical conferences.

The event also featured the internationally renowned chef and leader in the culinary field of molecular gastronomy, Homaro Cantu, who gave a presentation on how defying convention is essential to his endeavors, such as his invention of edible paper and interactive dining utensils. Also, Lyn Heward, the former president of creative content for Cirque du Soleil and author of The Spark, spoke about finding and exploiting the creative energy and zeal for innovation that lies within each of us.

Impact Unlimited's Re:Think 06 seminar was a tremendous success. Everyone who attended the event left feeling refreshed, re-energized and eager to take their own creativity to new heights.

This past July, Impacted Unlimited hosted more than 80 clients at their Fourth Annual Summer Symposium entitled Re:Think Convention 07 "Leading People, Leading Brands" at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, N.J.

"Re:Think 07 once again set the tone for continued creative thinking throughout the year," added Mr. Payne. "Re:Think is bigger than the event itself; it is really a strategic philosophy that should inspire our approach to business every day."
