Quicken Loans Arena Bridal Show

Posted on March 27, 2014 in All Posts

Rock The Q!

The last bridal show of the season took place at the Q Arena this March. Each year, Quicken Loans Arena provides its concourse for over fifty vendors to display their expertise.

Trade show events are always a great experience for us. We spent the afternoon talking with couples about ideas for their weddings, plans for the reception, and everything related to the big day. Jeff and Travis had a great time connecting with other vendors in the arena. Bridal shows like this are a great opportunity to make connections with the brides and industry professionals.

In addition to the vendor showcase, Rock The House put on an elegant runway show. All types of wedding apparel strutted down the stage while guests could take a glimpse of their future wedding day.

Rock The House can transform any wedding venue into your ideal setting. Visit our website for more info – RTHGroup.com

#ThisIsCLE

Posted on in All Posts

This Is Cleveland (And We Still Rock!)

Cleveland has a new branding campaign and we are on board! As a company that started in Cleveland fifteen years ago, we could not be more ecstatic with the people who live, thrive, work, and visit Northeastern Ohio each year.

When Positively Cleveland asked us to help with the new tourism marketing approach, we jumped right on! Being able to partner with Colortone made this event even better! #ThisIsCLE is about celebrating all things that make the city special. World renowned chefs, a burgeoning theatre district, 20,000 acres of wildlife, major sports facilities, music venues, plus tons more unique features were all celebrated.

Held in the new Cleveland Convention Center, we had space to add our own Cleveland flair. Our warehouse manager Ben brought his tank-of-a-truck decked out with Cleveland Browns gear. During the season you can find this monster truck near the stadium tailgating with fans and celebrating the city’s football team.

The event was full with citizens, food trucks, past/future maps, and a new slogan that shows who we really are. Rock The House handled the production of the event – draping the white façade in colorful uplights, screens displaying slide shows and videos, and sound for all the speakers at the event. All of those in attendance were able to follow along with the event on social media as our projectors displayed a waterfall feed of anyone using the hashtag #ThisIsCLE.

If you were not able to attend the event, here is Positively Cleveland’s video that sums up who we are, and why we are proud to be part of the city:

Team Member of the Month: Nate Williams

Posted on March 21, 2014 in All Posts

Nate Can Do It All!

Within the last several months Nate has become our go-to-guy for not just one department, but the company as a whole. All of the different jobs Nate is able to complete makes him very valuable to our managers. Until you have worked a 20 hour day in the production industry and know that you have another 10 to go, its hard to explain why Nate is important to the entire team. He is the guy that keeps your spirits up and keeps you motivated. He’s the one that doesn’t stop working but understands if you have hit your “brick wall” and won’t say a word.

Nate was a huge part of our success during this year’s bridal show season. Nate connected with couples and made the whole experience that much more fun for our sales staff. He made himself a real asset on some of the most important days for our company. Nate is easily one of the most unique members of our staff. Besides being a Certified Journeyman Electrician and a bar karaoke host, Nate spent his high school and college years as a competitive baseball pitcher.

Creative and Talent Director, Ryan Konikoff stated some of the reasons Nate is no invaluable to Rock The House: I will find myself in a meeting and someone will suggest Nate to MC a show, and then a production manager will mention that they really needed him in the office to assist in leading the shop team, while another manager will say that there is a challenging load in going on that day and they were hoping he could be on that team. Everyone wants Nate on their team.

Nate’s favorite Rock The House memory give you a real look into what makes him special:

My favorite memory would probably be the wedding we did for Kirkbrides at St. Josaphat’s Art Hall, a converted old church. They had a nightmare before christmas themed wedding and we had them dancing all night long. Our DJ, MC, Lighting Designer, and Photo Booth Technician were all stars. We all killed it that night and Valerie said it was one of the best weddings that year! I always want to see the client happy and that they got more than what they paid for.

We always get more than we pay for with Nate too!

Brides Take On The City

Posted on March 10, 2014 in All Posts

All Aboard The Bride Bus!

Personal Touch by Covesa put on this one of a kind event for brides to be. Instead of spending weeks driving around town, going from venue, to bakery, to entertainment facility, Covesa handles it all in one day.

The bus started out with thirty brides enjoying mimosas on as they headed out to Rock The House to see what we call the Demo Room. Part of our facility is dressed as a drab wedding hall where we show you how pipe and drape, uplighting, and monogrammed GOBO lights change any venue into an enchanted dream. Our Creative Director Ryan was on hand to get the brides into the reception spirit while teaching about all of our services.

The day continued onto multiple venues, bakeries, and even a stationary shop.  Covesa really takes the guesswork out of who to trust in the wedding world. The brides on the bus all had a great time discussing wedding plans and sharing ideas.

Personal Touch by Covesa puts on multiple weddings each year. They are a company we truly enjoy working with and know we can trust. For wedding planning check them out and for top of the line production work, check out our website RTHGroup.com

Cleveland Business Connects – Connectors Choice Awards

Posted on March 1, 2014 in All Posts

And The Winner is…

Rock The House! This past February we were honored once again by Cleveland Business Connects. Their annual Connectors Choice Award ceremony honors all those in the event industry each year by recognizing outstanding work and dedication to events in Northeastern Ohio.

Rock The House is proud to announce our team won awards for Best Trade Show Company and Best Production Company. In addition to the team awards, the Cleveland’s chapter of the International Special Events Society (ISES) won two awards – Best Networking Event and Best Networking Organization. Rock The House proudly represents ISES with two members on the board.

This was the first time we won the award for Best Trade Show Company. Working with the COSE Small Business Convention last October is what helped us reach the summit as a trade show company. Held at the exceptional Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, the convention included a Shark Tank style pitch contest, multiple keynote speakers, and a trade show floor where many businesses presented their craft. In addition to the production for the main stage, the pitch event, and trade show floor, we provided everything from microphones to photobooths (most notably production for the 80’s dance party held for all attendees).

Our award for Best Production Company is one of the highest honors we could ever receive. Although it is not the first win of its kind, we are truly humbled by the credit CBC has given us. In 2013, our company grew exponential amount, and both these awards reflect our adoration for the event industry.

Working with event partners is where a lot of our success originates. Participating in ISES with industry leaders has been a benefit in and of itself, and being included with them for two awards is the highest honor. The award for Best Networking Event comes from a visit to Catan Fashions in Strongsville with Event Visionary, David Tutera. The event held 170 guests while David spoke about turning events into a lifestyle.

The Best Networking Organization award is one we are personally very proud of.  Rock The House has been with ISES Cleveland since the beginning and we give a lot of our time in order to grow the prestige of this group. With two Rock The House members being committed to this volunteer organization,  we could not be more proud of the successes of both organizations.

Thanks again to Cleveland Business Connect and ISES Cleveland.  Congratulations to all the nominees and winners this year. To find out what puts Rock The House the best production company, visit our website – RTHGroup.com
