Creative and Branding

There are many services that fall into “creative and branding.”  Perhaps you need a great photographer and videographer for the week, or you want to create a gifting suite featuring local products upon arrival, or you want to source a fantastic local speaker.  CTC is well connected in our community and can help piece together the final touches.

Event Décor

CTC loves to play with décor.  Whether you need something as simple as linen and centerpieces, want to recreate the city skyline in a ballroom, or find a way to make your company logo the star of the show, we’ll coordinate your vision to a mood board and finished product.  Collaborate with us to create ways to recognize sponsors, VIPs, or change the tempo of the event through lighting.  We will work with you to execute from start to finish with the team.
