The weather is warming up and everyone is looking for any opportunity to leave their house. This season, especially in Chicago, is crucial for in person interactions for clients. And while your team is running around promoting and getting the word out about your brand, you need to put together events that will engage and entertain your guests.
The Biggest Holiday of the Year: 4/20
It seems like every year 4/20 celebrations get bigger and bigger. More and more companies are getting into the celebrations, and customers have their choice of where to celebrate.
Still, this 4/20 season, HME received a ton of calls from flustered teams about making sure their event runs smoothly. Things like having enough staff, handling consumption, and just the overall experience for guests. It takes a real effort and toll to put something together that your guests will enjoy and remember. Your marketing department probably has very big dreams, but sometimes you just need more hands on deck.

Navigating the Laws in Illinois
One of the biggest confusions when throwing an event in Illinois and Chicago is handling the consumption. All of these unclear laws and regulations can seem confusing and overwhelming, especially when you’re on a time crunch. Turning your happy event into a total nightmare.
Did you know you cannot legally transport over 1 ounce of flower a day?
This could be a problem if you need to transport cannabis from dispensaries to your event. You might have to do multiple trips, depending on how much you’ll need. These are just some of the nuances that your team would have to prepare for. You want to make sure to check in with the local authorities if you plan on doing anything outdoors. It’s especially important that you’re mindful of fire prevention and are on top of proper ventilation.
These details can easily fall in between the cracks when your primary focus is to promote the event. One appearance from the local authorities is enough to put a damper on any party, so preparing ahead is vital. High-minded Events has a track record for throwing consumption friendly events, taking care of those small details that make a big difference.

The Guest Experience
Who should be front and center in greeting and engaging with your clients? You and your team.
