Sphere of influence

Bonjour, dear friends.

It is with great anticipation and excitement we share a labour of love with you, a digital preview of The Social Concierge. Since our conception, we’ve grown immensely, but it was truly as of recently where we took leaps and bounds professionally, logistically and creatively. We’ve expanded not only in size of company, but more so importantly, in experiences. Specializing in generating unrivalled anticipation, moments of happiness and lifelong memories.

The past calendar cycle has set the stage for 300+ days of inspired and creative events, innovative celebrations and refreshing soirees expanding across Western Canada. From hosting over four thousand co-creators at one of Vancouver’s most iconic (and logistically difficult) Dîner en Blanc locations yet,

doubling our autumn festival, Harvest Haus, in just one year,

to expanding the architecturally composed event Monogram Dinner by Design nationally across Canada.

We’ve seen it all. There have been sword fights, candlelight dinners, circus acts, pop-up opera performances and derby day’s like the Deighton Cup and Packwood Grand, rivalling those overseas.

Expanding beyond that, there have even been incredible TEDxVancouver talks that have completely captivated 3000+ people.

These events may be worlds apart in design, but all have one commonality, our reason d’être, our central purpose: Bringing people together.

Our experiential boutique events continue to be our bread and butter, however, we have been extremely fortunate to take on more client events, redefining ourselves away from a traditional event company. Working with influential brands like lululemon athletica, Porsche, Wesgroup Developments, and Nike, among many others, has groomed us into what we believe to be the ultimate in creative agencies. 

Throughout those client events we’ve developed and executed experiential celebrations for employee appreciations and global brand launches,

worked with luxury brands to design and execute incomparable release parties,

and above all, have conceived events that immerse guests into the identity and true reason of the brand’s being.

Not only have we worked with globally recognized brands, we have been able to create with non-profit organizations to most ultimately raise awareness to their cause. Since inception of The Social Concierge, we’ve worked with charitable organizations such as Arts Umbrella, the Scotiabank Dance Centre, and Vancouver Public Library Foundation. We believe deeply in philanthropy and social impact as part of our regular routine.

Some of these organizations events have gone under complete re-design, centring the focus around its very reason for being, like Conquering Oral Cancer.

Refining existing events, or designing new ones, we’re proud to create and produce events for such life-changing foundations.

Trailblazing into the next chapter of The Social Concierge, we’re excited to share what the future has in store for us and this blog will continue to help us do so.

The Social Concierge lifestyle is rooted in creative design, spontaneous moments and spirited by a knowledgeable amount of food and champagne. Over the years we have gotten to know some fascinating people with sophisticated perspectives. If you like a good story with beautiful pictures, read on.
