Events and Gatherings
Journey of Eight specializes in event marketing, awareness campaigning, friend and fundraising, conferences and educational projects. The events we design and coordinate are typically part of a Development Initiative. We focus on small-medium business, educational associations, service industry, hospitality, specialty retail and non-profit clients. JOE designs events that are meaningful and beneficial to all who participate. Some examples of our past and current events;
- NASSCFL (North American Society for Seventeenth Century French Literature) 2016 Conference hosted by Rollins College. This international highly prestigious academic conference is designed to engage not only the academic community but the local and philanthropic community. For the first time this year the banquet awards event will raise funds for local charity.
- The Paris Journey is an annual community based cultural awareness and event marketing campaign hosted by business partners. A percentage of sales campaign raises support for the arts. The events all have a Paris Theme and information is provided encouraging travel experiences to Paris. These gatherings provide attendees with a fun, interactive, network of like minded community members! Local gatherings take place from September – April. This event marketing program has generated over $100,000.00 in annual sales and contributed almost $25,000.00 in donations for the cultural arts.
- Masquerade Ball, a costume and black tie gala raised support for much needed healthcare services on behalf of Catholic Charities of Central Florida. The gala event featured student performances partnering with Rollins College School of Music and Orlando Ballet School. This gala raised over $35,000.00 in funding to support free medical and dental clinics.
