Total Event Resources Recognized for PepsiCo Event Work
Total Event Resources, a Woman's Business Enterprise certified meeting and events company, has been recognized with the 2014 Best Corporate Event NICE award for their work on the PepsiCo National Fleet/Other Goods & Services Summit & Tradeshow. The NICE awards celebrate accomplishments of Chicago members of NACE (National Association of Catering and Events) and ISES (International Special Events Society).
Total Event Resources has been a PepsiCo strategic partner for the National Fleet/Other Goods & Services Summit & Tradeshow for six years, helping the company keep the event fresh and ensuring quality interactions occur. With 600 PepsiCo employees seeking to increase productivity and improve day-to-day working of their distribution centers, the 600 supplier partners in attendance hoped to sell their trucks, vehicle parts, computer systems, and inform PepsiCo employees about their latest customer initiatives.
Managing everything from event theme concepting and selection to registration and supplier fund management; venue contract negotiations to food and beverage; and general session production to development of a custom mobile app, Total Event Resources helped PepsiCo exceed its networking, learning and selling goals. The mobile app was integrated throughout the event to promote quality networking, gather metrics for the company, and promote green initiatives.
"PepsiCo has leveraged our proven industry expertise to support their corporate initiatives throughout the entire planning process," said Donna Collins, senior account executive, Total Event Resources. "Our team is continually challenged to bring innovative ideas and solutions forward, making the work very rewarding and a great deal of fun."
"Total Event Resources continues to exceed our expectations for this very important PepsiCo event," said Dennis Selle, PepsiCo Global Fleet Procurement. "The mobile app reduced the environmental impact of this event and provided valuable tracking information that will serve as an input when planning future events."
Last year, Total Event Resources received three NICE Awards, one for Best Corporate Event Over $75,000, Best Entertainment Over $15,000, and the ISES Rising Star Award given to Lauren Bettcher. An active member of ISES since 1992, the Total Event Resources team has been producing innovative events for Fortune 1000 companies, major trade associations and not-for-profit organizations since 1995.
