It was this time last year that our team was in New York City at The Museum of Natural History to produce the FIT Foundation Gala hosted by Amber Valletta. We are thinking of all our friends in New York and across the country unable to come together to celebrate their incredible organizations. The FIT foundation creates such valuable opportunities for students to learn and gain experience from industry experts. ⁣

When Coronavirus Brought the Events Industry to a Full Stop, Local Pros Launched a Coalition to Help Navigate the Sitaution Together

The Dufour Collaborative is so proud to be a founding member of the Dc Events Coalition. What started as a small group of concerned event producers has emerged as a network of consultants, vendors, producers, planners, venues, and business owners coming together to lift the DMV live events industry up despite its recent challenges. Check out this spotlight from Washingtonian and join us at dceventcoalition.com.

Back in early March, eight event industry leaders came together to figure out how they were going to handle the effects of Covid-19 on not just weddings,

Today we look back on the National Museum of American History Great Americans Medal recipients who have had an incredible cultural and philanthropic impact on this country 🇺🇸 ⁣

As we reflect on the ways these Great Americans have used their platforms to support their fellow citizens, we are thankful for those who lend a helping hand to their communities now and everyday. ⁣

May we take this time to look for the Great American within ourselves and those around us.⁣

The REACH at the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts was designed with collaboration at the forefront of its mission. The Dufour Collaborative is always thrilled to work in this venue.⁣

It is in times like these that we are reminded how important it is to think of others. ⁣

Our friends at Special Olympics International have long been champions of these ideals. Last summer in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts we celebrated the revolution Eunice Kennedy Shriver started 50 years ago with a weekend of fun, games, and festivities. Special Olympics carries on her legacy with compassion, kindness, and inclusion at the core of its mission.⁣

We are proud to partner with organizations that have long worked to unite us all. #BeEventful #StayHome #TheRevolutionIsInclusion

We produce each event at The Dufour Collaborative with a team of incredible vendors who help us bring our ideas to life. Many of the vendors in our industry were hit hardest by COVID-19; we want to say thank you for all they do to support and execute every event. ⁣

How Ridgewells Catering's Erin Go Glam Event in Washington, D.C. Pivoted to Become a Roundtable Discussion on COVID-19

Last Friday, we had the opportunity to sit down with other DC industry leaders to discuss what COVID-19 may mean for events. Philip Dufour, our President and Creative Director, spoke words of hope saying, "We'll come out of this in a different place; I think everybody will. As a community and as an industry, we're going to be stronger for this because we are going to have to lean on each other."

This is an opportunity to grow closer as an industry. Thank you Roger Whyte for bringing the Coalition of DC event professionals together. This coalition includes Bond Events, BRAVO! Events by Design, Andre Wells, Linder Global Events, RJ Whyte Event Production, and The Dufour Collaborative. We look forward to the meaningful gatherings that will take place following this time apart.

Ridgewells Catering's "Erin Go Glam" event in Washington, D.C., took a turn amid the coronavirus outbreak, shifting from a playful affair to a panel discussion regarding COVID-19's effect on the event industry and beyond.

This week we had the opportunity to celebrate Netflix's new series, Gentefied—the story of a Latinx family banding together to save their grandfather's restaurant as their Los Angeles neighborhood continues to gentrify. La Cosecha at Union Market DC provided the perfect backdrop to the event, matching the authentic representation fans love in Gentefied. Gracias to the writers, producers and cast for joining us in Washington. If you're looking for something to do this weekend, check out Gentefied, now streaming on Netflix and support La Cosecha, a contemporary marketplace celebrating Latin American heritage. #BeEventful CVW Event Productions, Lucy Black Entertainment, Pixelme Studio, Atmosphere, Inc., Revolution Event Design and Production, Occasions Caterers, Peruvian Brothers, Serenata, Cafe Unido Usa, Grand Cata, Latin Wine Shop
