Like French dip sandwiches and putting “the” in front of freeway names, Wise Guys Events got its start in Los Angeles. Here are four reasons why we’re still the best when it comes to planning Los Angeles events and corporate team building programs in Southern California.
- Street-level smarts: Whether your Los Angeles event is for a group is visiting from all over, or you each have a parking place somewhere in the city with your name on it, or it’s a mix, when you come to LA you want event planners with an insider’s intelligence. We know what Dodgers traffic means for travel on the east side; we know which parks in mid-city are shady (as in, tree cover) and which ones are shady (as in, don’t go there); and we understand what a realistic commute time means, so if you’re doing lunch in Orange County and you want to play your team building game on the beach in Malibu, we’re going to give you the tough truth about how long you’re going to be on a coach for. There’s no mystery our Los Angeles production staff can’t crack – we know the city so well, we never go to Hollywood and Highland! But if that’s where you want to play your game, we’ll meet you there. We’d make an exception, but just for you, person reading this blog post.
- We’re experts in team building so…: We built an incredible team! Los Angeles is world-renowned as the entertainment capital of the earth, and there’s a level of talent around here that isn’t rivaled anywhere. There ought to be a reality show for most talented property manager, because there’s so many talented people here, and not all of them are waiters and bartenders, though many of them are, and they’re incredible. What does that mean for you? You’re getting top-shelf level talent on site for your event. Our clients regularly tell us that the Game Masters and game runners who facilitate the games are their very favorite part of the experience. You might even want to take them home with you! But you cannot. They have their own homes, and we don’t run that kind of business. It’s an understandable impulse, though. Schedule a team building game with us, it’s the next best thing to taking our talent home.
- Putting it all out there: Outdoors, that is. This isn’t one we can technically take credit for, but the weather make Los Angeles a primo destination for incentive travel, offsites, and retreats, and we know how to make the most of it. From our sightseeing-heavy offering Snapshot Safari, to throwing a Frisbee around in the park as part of Play Stations or the Decathlon (and say, is that a clue on the underside of the Frisbee?) you’ll be so pleased with our fun, outdoor frolics, you may never want to go back inside again! Years ago, LA Weekly did a bracket where readers could cast votes for the best thing about LA. The weather narrowly beat out Hollywood Bowl, but the weather causes fewer traffic jams, so we suggest getting outside. Plus, we’ll give you sunscreen if you forgot your own, and the brands we use are environmentally friendly. Remember, we’re Californians, we care about the environment! Speaking of which:
- Changes to the climate. Are you looking for a beach activity with sand castles? A Hollywood scavenger hunt on the Walk of Fame? A more sedate ice breaker game that won’t get you kicked out of a wrap-up lunch indoors at one of the city’s insanely high number of bonkers good, posh restaurants? Los Angeles has forests, coastline, cityscapes, quiet neighborhoods, frenzied street scenes – the whole gamut! Based on what you’re looking for, we can help you pair the best environment and the best game to your group. There are so many choices, and we know how to play a fun team building game in all of them.
And one bonus reason: Los Angeles events is our bread and butter, where we got our start. We were first to the post, and we’re still proud as punch of our LA bonafides. It’s like seeing your favorite indie band at the Troubadour. You’d get that reference if you were from LA, like we are.
Planning a team building program or corporate event in Southern California? Look no further: Wise Guys Events can give you the red carpet experience you’re looking for, without that pesky paparazzi. They stayed home with mamarazzi and all the little baby razzies.
