CaRE EB-5 Fund & Regional Center (“CaRE”) sought to host a premium EB-5 event in Shanghai to showcase the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills. Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger would be the special guest, so the event required an event management partner with expertise in VIP logistics and security, cross-border communications and international production quality.
Dragon Group worked closely with CaRE, AIIC and Austar throughout planning process to choose the optimal venue, define the event rundown and staffing plan, provide government permitting, budgeting, design, sourcing, VIP transportation and security management services.
We met with China-based partners AIIC and Austar on a daily basis and held regular calls with CaRE to ensure all stakeholders approved of each aspect of the event production, and most importantly shared the same vision for a successful event and final result.
On the event day we hosted over 1,000 attendees and 100 VIP guests for a half-day session with high level speakers, videos, presentations, and photo session with our VIP. We executed all VIP logistics, security and transportation from Schwarzenegger’s private jet arrival, rider, vehicles, event briefing and executive protection agents on site. The entire on site registration, production and audio-visual execution was seamless. Both client and attending investors were pleased with the outcome as one of the largest EB-5 events of its kind.
