SkillSurvey Enjoys the Eiteljorg

by User Not Found | Aug 15, 2012

It’s been a dry, hot American summer, which has really put a damper on outdoor events. Yet the excruciating heat doesn’t stop the Eiteljorg from hosting a spectacular event. On Tuesday, July 24, a group from SkillSurvey, Inc., based out of Philadelphia, had planned on hosting a corporate cocktail reception that was to be in the beautiful lower gardens of the Eiteljorg along the canal. But on Monday the 23rd, the temperature was expected to be over 97 degrees on the day of the event, which makes for a miserable 5 hours outside. Thanks to the Eiteljorg policy that a client can decide by noon the day of the event whether they want it to be indoors or outdoors, the members of SkillSurvey were more than ready to alter the plans and move everything inside. By 6pm on Tuesday everything was in place for the event. The large SkillSurvey logo was shining down in lights on the floor of the entrance, beautiful blue up lights were placed around the ballroom, and Sinatra was flowing from the DJ’s speakers. All the guests were grateful for the air conditioning and extremely pleased with the beautiful ballroom that was utilized for their event.  With cocktails in Eagle Commons Hall followed by a delicious array of food stations provided by Kahn’s Catering in the ballroom, the guests were extremely satisfied with the reception.

The Eiteljorg is a wonderful venue to hold corporate events, such as the one SkillSurvey had, and not only because the JW Marriott is conveniently located just across the road. With so many different areas of the museum to utilize, it creates a unique and memorable atmosphere to host an event. One of the aspects of the event the SkillSurvey guests greatly enjoyed was the guided tours through the museum exhibits. Since the majority of guests were from Pennsylvania, they were unfamiliar with the Eiteljorg and the type of museum it is. Thanks to three very kind volunteers at the museum, the guests of SkillSurvey were offered tours through the exhibits. They loved this portion of the event and were impressed with the array of exhibits. After a few hours of eating, drinking, touring the museum, and listening to the great music provided by Jeremy from DJ’s Direct, the guests of SkillSurvey walked back across the street to the JW Marriott filled with new knowledge of American Indians and Western Art, as well as delicious Kahn’s Catering food.
