The CORT Events team approached the Orlando VIP Event, hosted at the Varsity Club at Camping World Stadium, as an opportunity to be inspired by the spirit of central Florida. By focusing on the effervescence and heart of Orlando’s bustling downtown, the result was a showcase of the urban tropical jungle that is the city of Orlando.
We realized our vision for an event that celebrated the diversity of the semi-tropical city by combining exciting on-trend products with expert design consultation. The result truly captured the multifaceted personality of Orlando. Because Florida is known for its tropical climate, palm trees and year-round sun and fun, we wanted the event to reflect that cool, casual effervescence. This VIP Event showcased the ways that CORT can help create special events using client inspiration and go beyond their expectations.
Evan Carbotti, owner and designer at Carbotti Experiences, spoke to how Florida’s unique aesthetic led to the hip, yet elegant event that included so many hot trends, like mixed materials, and floral and tropical patterned pillows and graphics. Carbotti said, “We’re bringing in the new energy that’s happening downtown. We’re bringing lots of printed elements and modern pieces with eclectic mixes. We’re using all new CORT products that we haven’t used in the past. They’re really on trend. They’re funky. There’s a lot of different textures.” They combined different style furnishings, like the modern Island double sofa with the classical Napoleon collection to surprising and successful effect.
Clients always come to us with an idea for an event. We take that inspiration and through design consultation as well as 2-D and 3-D space planning, create environments that will realize that design vision. Then, of course, we can deliver it anywhere.
Leaning into the whimsical personality of Orlando allowed us to create an unforgettable event that spoke to the spirit of the city.
