September 22nd/23rd, 2017 - Vicenza and Venice
We celebrated FIS's 60th anniversary among Damien Hirst's works at Punta della Dogana, an icon of contemporary art in Venice, with an event characterized by elegance and refinement.
FIS is a company that expresses the style and culture of a family that has owned and run it for generations and its values shape and inspire every aspect of the organization: from feasibility study to the creation of cultural programs, from the choice of locations to hospitality services for the guests, up to the organization of the logistics.
To celebrate 60 years of activity, this leading company in the production of chemicals invited international clients and corporate executives of affiliated companies worldwide to Venice to celebrate its anniversary on September 22-23.
It was a 2-day corporate event packed with unforgettable experiences, where the institutional moments gave way to cultural programs, team-building activities and international exchanges.
Coordinated by our logistics staff, the guests arrived in private water taxis from the airport and the city terminals, and were welcomed at the hospitality desk prepared for the event at the Hilton Molino Stucky hotel. That same evening we organized a meet and greet dinner on the rooftop terrace of the hotel, to give guests an opportunity to mix and mingle. The following day was dedicated to the cultural activities designed for the spouse program in Venice, while corporate guests were in Vicenza, with a visit to the factory and conference conducted by a prominent key note speaker.
The evening was the highlight of the event, the memory that everyone brought with them. At Punta Dogana, in the old salt warehouses restored by Japanese star-architect Tadao Ando, among Damien Hirst's pieces , we set up tables for the gala dinner. Soft lights, candles and centerpieces created in white, red and purple coral, turned the tablescapes into a work of art in themselves, making them one with the exhibition.
We feel that the result was very positive, as was the feedback we received from the company. As stated in the FIS concept - " Passion and innovation along the same line" - we once again succeeded in creating a tailor-made event thanks to our passion, commitment and ability to rise to the occasion.
