Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 29, 2010
Kennedy Creative, a leading DMC, wedding and event production company, announced today that it has moved its corporate headquarters to a new space in South Austin. The decision to move to a location that doubles the size of the current office was made to accommodate growth of Kennedy Creative’s décor and furniture business along with its nationwide corporate and non-profit event management and recently launched Destinations by Kennedy (DMC) & Weddings by Kennedy.
The new location includes space for local workshops and design activities, with a specific focus on providing a place to brainstorm and create for the various Austin non-profit organizations that Kennedy Creative supports, such as Leadership Austin and LifeWorks.
“We’ve loved working with Kennedy Creative on our annual signature fundraising event, Best Party Ever. The team is sharp, creative and very generous of their time,” said Hannah Nokes, Vice President of Development and Marketing for non-profit Leadership Austin. “We look forward to participating in the creative process at the new Kennedy Creative offices.”
Located at 5810 Trade Center Drive, the new headquarters includes over 6,000 square feet to house the Kennedy Creative offices, storage space for event design elements available for rent and a showroom area. The showroom will feature event color and design trends as well as function as a creative space where visitors can experiment with different design elements and tools to create anything from centerpieces to entire room designs.
“At Kennedy Creative, we put a lot of effort into really getting to know our clients so we can design events that match their personality and style,” said Natalie Kennedy, founder of Kennedy Creative. “Most people would think the recent economy would take its toll on the event business, but we’ve experienced quite the opposite. We’ve been eager to find a spot that will allow us to be more interactive and hands on with our clients in the office.”
Kennedy Creative will also begin providing various workshops at the new location, for event planners, brides to be or anyone interested in learning about the different aspects of event planning and design. These workshops will cover anything from creating a flower arrangement to developing a checklist to pull off an event without a hitch. The workshops will be led by experts from the Kennedy Creative team and include guest speakers and presenters from the industry.
“Sometimes brides and planners aren’t looking to hire a company to take care of every detail, they just need a little guidance along the way,” continued Kennedy. “Our workshops will provide people with best practices and specific tactics to help build their dream wedding or event.”
The Kennedy team moved into the new location on September first and plan to open the space to visitors sometime in October.
