Saphier Events recently helped launch the event space at the More Than Words bookstore on Berkeley St in Boston. This was our third venue launch where we created the systems, guides and processes for all steps from event inquiries to event day and wrap up. After a successful 6 month build out and over 25 event rentals completed with many more on the books, More Than Words is ready to manage the space internally. We have also helped the Lynn Museum and Camp Cedar Hill successfully launch. We are also on our 9th year of running the sales department at the Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts.

The Saphier Events team recently wrapped up the 9th annual National Mentoring Summit at the Renaissance DC Downtown, our 7th Summit! Over 1,300 attendees were able to enjoy over 100 presentations, three main stage plenaries, a VIP dinner at the Library of Congress and an advocacy day to promote MENTOR and the mentoring field on Capitol Hill. We also arranged for a staff retreat with a nighttime trolley tour of the monuments, created and managed the registration site in CVENT and handled all of the logistics for the many fabulous pop up meetings that happened along with the Summit. Planning is already underway for the 10th annual National Summit next year on January 29-31, 2020!

About MENTOR The National Mentoring Partnership

The National Mentoring Partnership's (MENTOR) goal is to provide young people with the support they need to become thriving, productive, and engaged adults as they move through various stages of their life. Only one in three young people will have a mentor in their lifetime. MENTOR's focus is closing that gap starting at a young age. For more information, visit www.mentoring.org.

“Saphier Events has been an integral partner for the National Mentoring Summit for years, taking our annual event to new heights through a strategic, thoughtful, and personalized approach... [Saphier Events has] broken attendance records year over year and... [have become an] authentic extension of our organization and the people we serve.”

Hosted at the Cyclorama on Tremont St. in Boston, the BCA orchestrated a fundraiser event to support their artists in residence. PRISM was an immersive experience that featured a captivating light show, live painting, live fashion photography, an art installation, and dancing. Saphier Events jumped in to offer support in the month leading up to the event. We worked with their in kind sponsors: Lolita's, Elephant Walk, Roxy's Grilled Cheese, Bombay Sapphire, Lord Hobo and Polar Seltzer, finalized details with vendors, secured donations for the PRISM Pick and lead the event onsite. The successful event exceeded their fundraising goal and was attended by over 400 guests. See more at theprismparty.com.
