Community Festivals

 

You might catch us whizzing by on our golf carts.  Hundreds of vendors,  multiple beer gardens and music stages and a whole Kids festival within the festival - all along a mile long street with about 100,000 attendees - no problem!  Not all festivals are as large as the world famous Abbot Kinney Festival (Venice, California), but they all have one ultimate goal in mind, driving business. There are too many moving parts to count, but that's our specialty, implementing seamless productions that look effortless. We're equipped to handle all aspects; logistics, staffing, design, entertainment, vendors, marketing and community liaison.

Festivals and Indie Craft Markets are a fun and an extremely effective way to bridge organizations (businesses or nonprofits) with the community.  We've planned other purposeful uses of community spaces.

People came from throughout the neighborhood to enjoy the food, music and interesting retail booths. It was a very authentic neighborhood experience. We wish it would have been an ongoing event each summer.

Creative Engagements

We'll zero in on your target!  Rendezvous Collective will design and implement an event or series of events targeted to attract and maintain a loyal following for our clients. Our scope covers logistics and implementation, in addition to overseeing collateral design and promotion.

We love creating activations that are engaging and fun!

 
 

ABBOT KINNEY MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION - Annual Snow Day & HOliday stroll

 

Abbot Kinney Snow Day is now a Holiday mainstay along Abbot Kinney Boulevard and is a beloved Holiday kick-off event for local merchants and the community. What began as a sweet holiday "gift" to the neighbors of bustling Abbot Kinney has grown into a greatly anticipated tradition for adults and kids alike.  Building on the tons of snow delivered to cheers from one and all, local high school choirs carol along the street adding joyful cheer to the Boulevard's Holiday Stroll.  Rendezvous Marketing weaves this winning combination of snow, singing and Santa, creating a festive shopping spirit, music to any brick and mortar's ears. 

 

Reiss Co - crawfest & stoli spot

Lifestyle branding is just one of the many things that sets Reiss Co apart from other Venice based restaurants. Crawfest, now a Memorial Day staple at the widely famous Brig Bar in Venice, gathers locals and newcomers alike for a crawfish boil, the traditional way: 600lbs of crawfish, Andouille sausage, seasoning, and a pot. Poured directly onto the table. Not to be outdown by the sister property, Sunny Spot, claimed Fourth of July weekend as it's moment in the spotlight to step outside it's doors and create a Stoli Spot beachside cocktail picnic, complete with beach chairs and sand. 

Both experiences have afforded owner David Reiss a way to expand his clientele base while enhancing his brand identity.  

 

Your Lifestyle Defined

We're storytellers, we're your storytellers. While crafting a Rendezvous Collective event, the devil is in the details.  Concisely conveying your lifestyle is considered every step along the way.  It's seamlessly woven into the story.  The look and feel is consistent across all media channels. Graphics are compelling.  We thoughtfully design appropriate collateral; postcards, door hangers, posters, brochures, and more. Interactive strategies of consumer engagement; prize drawings, Instagram contests, scavenger hunts, or even video simultaneous conferencing are custom tailored to engage your community.

 
 

Abbot Kinney Festival merchant engagement

Beachy, bright and sunny light pole banners pepper Abbot Kinney Boulevard during the warm, tourist laden summer months.  These fun bursts of color create synergy between the Abbot Kinney Festival brand and the resident brick and mortar businesses. Merchant focused collateral is designed to drive shopper interaction, creating a cohesive brand identity that resonates with consumers.

To stimulate shopping along the mile long street, interactive marketing strategies resulted in increased consumer engagement.  An Instagram scavenger hunt worth a shopping spree drawing of over $4000 worth of local merchant donations was promoted through clever and whimsical banners, window posters and postcards promoting the event.  Local merchants compounded the fun with in-store events and promotions shared on the blvd's website and social media outlets.  Success was measured from social media growth and robust store receipts representing $65,000 in sales within just a few hours.

Destination Driven Partnerships

 

Each Rendezvous Artisan Market is a destination event of hand-picked local artisans. Our Festivals are perfectly executed personal experiences. They're relevant, wholesome and always FUN!  There's no shortage of  great craft markets. To separate ourselves from the pack we realize that the key to our markets is the location. We seek out the most interesting local venues to create the perfect environment for our markets.


In this fast-paced, mass produced world, we recognize the importance of quality craftsmanship and are proud to create an authentic community for our talented vendors to offer their unique goods. We feel we're part of the solution. Equally important to our core values is giving back.  That's why our markets are also fundraisers for our partner venues or local non-profits.  We put our hearts and souls into creating a truly memorable event.

We welcome you to Rendezvous with family & friends and experience a Life Well Crafted.
