PHILADELPHIA, May 9, 2016 - Perfection Events and Stockton & Partners announce that they have been selected to produce the Delegates Welcome Reception during the convention. They will be responsible for event conception and execution, and for ensuring that the 6,000 delegates and their families attending the DNC are properly welcomed to the City of Brotherly Love.
“As two small business owners, we are honored and excited to produce one of the most important events taking place during the 2016 DNC,” said Mazda Miles, President and Chief Event Strategist of Perfection Events. “Together, we will create a memorable experience for the delegates at what is sure to be a historic convention. As proud Philadelphians, we are truly honored to play a role in showcasing our amazing region,” added Kate Stockton, President of Stockton & Partners.
Mazda Miles and Kate Stockton each have more than 20 years’ experience producing and managing high impact events and meetings. Though they operate separate businesses, these powerhouse women entrepreneurs formed a dynamic partnership to offer the DNC Host Committee a unique approach to planning the Delegates Welcome Reception.
Perfection Events and Stockton & Partners have a decade-long track record of successfully producing events jointly, including partnering on the grand opening events for the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority expansion in 2012. It is this spirit of collaboration that helped them win the bid for the DNC Delegates Welcome Reception.
“It is refreshing to see two independent firms, who would appear to be competitors, willingly come together to collaborate on a piece of business.” Stockton said. “And the fact that we’ve done this more than once speaks volumes about how we truly value each others’ talents and experience, and what an important business strategy it is to combine forces to go after an opportunity like this. We have distinguished ourselves, collaboratively and individually, by utilizing this approach to best serve our customers.”
Perfection Events produces a number of large-scale and community-based events, such as the Susquehanna Health Tower unveiling and Art Sanctuary’s Celebration of Black Arts Festival. Miles’ firm has also been selected to produce the first Better Bike Share Partnership Conference in Philadelphia this coming June. Similarly, Stockton & Partners is known for their expertise and creativity in producing high profile events such as Einstein Healthcare Network’s 150th Anniversary kickoff gala, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney’s Inauguration Celebration, and the Philadelphia Science Festival Carnival.
“When we realized the convention was coming to Philadelphia, we knew we’d have a distinct opportunity to showcase the spirit of our city. Through our partnership, we want to be an example to other business owners and show that sometimes we are more powerful together,” said Miles.
