2022, What a Year!
2022, what a year! Like many of you, I can hardly believe it’s come and gone and all that happened in between. This year was a whirlwind of returning events that came back bigger and better from their long slumber and flood of new events that brought fresh energy to Alaskans.
As we close out the year, I find myself truly grateful for our dedicated staff who worked over 100 event days, the hard-working vendors who supported us in creating unique experiences for every event, and our amazing clients! Without them, we could not be where we are today and I’m proud to say that is stronger than ever.
This last year our team doubled the number of event days from the year prior, producing more events than ever before! How did we do it? By maintaining and continuing to grow our fantastic team of event professionals. In the last 12 months, we brought on four new staff members, and all of them with their own specialized set of skills. With 47 clients in our roster, that’s what was needed in order to make sure everyone was able to get the attention they needed for their projects to be successful.
2022 also took us to new places. We were able to serve rural communities all around Alaska which was truly impactful & satisfying work. Producing events in more than 10 cities in this state alone was an exciting opportunity for our team who were all but willing to go and support our clients in those areas.
And we had a lot of fun along the way too! From introducing our clients to new virtual event tech, to using LED screens to tell an event’s story, or interactive entertainment that immersed attendees into a theme, the Toast of the Town team was able to delight clients and attendees alike with unique experiences!
We are blessed to be a part of so many wonderful and important events that support Alaskans. Whether it was supporting our nonprofit clients as they raised a cumulative $2 million this year, launching new events that sparked conversations about Alaska’s environmental future, or celebrating 50 years of ANCSA, our team was extremely proud of the impact that we had in our community.
As we look towards 2023, we are excited to see what new events are in store! This next year is booking up fast so be sure to contact us for support. We are continuing to grow our team in order to make sure we can keep up with the demand. Keep them coming, Alaska!
