POP
Believes

We believe events need less sequins and more purpose.

Attendees aren’t simply interested in a shimmery party with chic linens and pretty invites, they want to be seen, understood and know that someone ‘gets them’. Our clients don’t just want a pat on the back at the finale of an event for a job well done, they want to know that they’ve created something remarkable.

And our vendors don’t just want us to cut them a cheque, they want to contribute to something epic, revolutionary, a first. You see, events aren’t just things that you get dressed up, wound up and liquored up for, they’re an opportunity to touch people, change their way of thinking, express gratitude and move the dial. Life is too short to do work that doesn’t matter to you or anyone else.

That’s why we don’t shrink back when challenged on our way of thinking, we stand with conviction. We believe that success favours the brave. We blaze our own path. And, we incessantly ask the question, “Why?”. It’s our duty to purge the conformities of our industry. You don’t earn delight from serving room temperature rubber chickens. And you don’t earn repeat business by wastefully spending money on things that lack connection to the attendee or the brand.

We stand for what matters. Because we know when we do, the result is rooted in prehistoric biology. People’s pupils dilate, their hairs stand up on end, their ears burn with excitement and their hearts beat faster.

We create events that don’t only look different, they ‘feel’ different…kind of like the feeling of anticipation before lightening strikes. You don’t know why you feel a reaction…but we do. We disrupt the status quo.
