Breaking Bread & Building Business
We also partner with associations to develop business-building programs that leverage food and drink to appreciate, reward and motivate the most important individuals in your ecosystem. We can set your business apart with an exceptional sponsor or member appreciation program, achievement award program and other unique strategies.
Your Partner in Corporate Hospitality
We also draw on our experiences across thousands of successful corporate meetings, conferences, events and culinary festivals to deliver high-value consulting and advisory services related to corporate hospitality, food and drink investments. We work with member-based associations to ensure that food and drink are used as strategic tools to achieve organizational goals.
The Right Level of Service for You
Whether you’re an event management professional looking for new ideas or corporate event planning support – or a frazzled director who needs someone to take event planning completely off your hands – Groovy Grapes has a service model to suit you.
We’ll work with you to design the event concept, format and menu, and we’ll be on standby to provide you with coaching as you manage the event logistics.
In addition to designing the event and providing you with coaching, we’ll send Groovy Grapes staff to the event to facilitate wine tastings and other activities.
We’ll work closely with you but we’ll do ALL the work – from concept design to onsite facilitation and complete event management.
