Setting the Stage to Engage

When we were asked by the founders of the Engage Summits to design their Engage! Luxury Wedding Business Summit taking place here in Cabo San Lucas, we JUMPED ON BOARD without hesitation! Of course! Serving as Creative Directors, we knew it was the perfect opportunity to showcase our company’s abilities to design and produce high-style and logistically complex events. But we also knew designing the Engage! conference would give us the chance to highlight the modern artistry and traditional craftsmanship of our beloved Mexico!

Beginning with the Stage

Where to start? Well, where the magic of continuing education and creative inspiration would take place. The stage! Most particularly, the set design to serve as an amazing backdrop for the speakers. For the stage design, Team Elena Damy took inspiration from the Huichol people of Jalisco, Durango, Zacatecas, and Nayarit, Mexico, who are known for their intricate, spiritually significant, and colorful bead and string folk art. Bringing the traditional Huichol art into a modern, purposeful style using 7,000 pieces of colorful PVC pipe was due to the brilliant collaboration of Elena and Interior Designer, Mary Romero. Combined with custom-made fabric cacti props, luxurious settees and stylish furniture, LED screens, soft lighting, and other carefully curated decorative elements placed on the stage, the set design was absolutely stunning!

It was a spectacular backdrop that served as a welcoming, warm, artistic expression of Mexico. Exactly what we hoped for, so please, take a look at the whole stage project from rendering to reality! As well as how the speakers appeared in the stage environment.
