Vendor Highlight – Kevin Hamdan

For this week’s blog post, The Debonair Team decided to turn our focus to highlighting some of the vendors that we have partnered with. These people and companies have consistently helped us achieve event excellence over the years and we feel that it is important to showcase  their skills and talents. As a corporate events company , we have built a strong team of reliable vendors that specialize in various event assets such as entertainment, food, beverage, decoration and so much more. There are so many details needed to create a successful event that having reliable vendors that will always deliver to complete all of our event goals is something that we  place of utmost importance in at Debonair.  This week we will be highlighting Kevin Hamdan, one of our exciting and awe inspiring entertainment vendors. Let’s get started!

Kevin Hamdan is officially titled a ‘Mentalist and Psychological Illusionist’. He has been working within the magic and entertainment industry since the young age of 6 when his father first peaked his interest. This moment propelled Kevin into a lifelong journey of perfecting the art of magic. Pairing his magic skills with his ability to connect with his audiences through humour and conversation, Kevin has become one of Toronto’s biggest magic performers. His popularity is rapidly growing through social media as well. 

When understanding Kevin’s style of magic, his goal is to make his audience members feel that he is in their head, identifying all of their thoughts and ideas. He does this by guessing audience member’s answers to various questions, correctly identifying a person’s birth sign and so on. During one of our past events, Kevin performed and created electric energy amongst the company retreat crowd. At one point, he asked audience members to correctly pick which bag to slam his hand down on with a single sharp spike in one of these bags. As someone working the event, I was on the edge of my seat as well!

Kevin has been an amazing connection working with Debonair for both in person and online events. . We found him through his strong social media presence and knew that we’d have to work together. He has now become one of our go-to entertainment vendors in the industry. Whenever we work with Kevin, we know that our audiences will leave with a story to tell their friends and family. 

Over the life of Debonair Corporate Events, our team has perfected a list of notable, trustworthy vendors of all different types that we can always rely on to deliver perfect experiences to all of our clients and their attendees. Whether it’s the perfect decorations for your gala, a delicious dinner menu for your company work retreat, or exhilarating entertainment like our friend Kevin, we always push to create something unique that suits our client’s needs. If you have any event questions Debonair is always here to answer. Please follow Kevin Hamdan on Instagram @kevinhamden to have your mind BLOWN.

It’s a new week, so that means a new blog post! Today, The Debonair Team decided that it would be valuable to focus on the importance of having experienced staff and vendors working your events.Putting an event seems simple enough sometimes, however we can confirm there is a lot more going on behind the scenes than meets the eye. Two overlooked aspects of event planning are 1) who works the event, and how they must have experience, and 2) The importance of vendors – vendor relationships are built over time and properly managed, collaborated and mastered to help clients create unique experiences, custom to their needs through food, beverage, entertainment and more. So, let’s get started!

Why is staffing important at events?

When working with an events team like Debonair, you get access to a team of event staff that are professional, knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to event execution. Staff like ours will appropriately represent your company, brand or organization while also allowing you, the client, to enjoy the event and leave the work to us! On top of this, event staff must be reliable and flexible. Because our team deals with various types of organizations and companies, that means our events are completely different every time. Because of this, it’s crucial that our team is flexible and  knowledgeable so they can help attendees with any questions that arise. Having reliable staff is  detrimental to an event’s success. When hiring staff that is outside of an events team or agency, they may not know exactly what is needed from the event planner or the event itself. Having reliable staff can reduce the workload on a planner and allow them to oversee the entire event. 

What about vendors?

Reliable vendors are a key part of events. Having a reliable network of vendors  that has access to exactly what you need to create your vision can make or break an event.  There is no way we can create an event without the help of many, we have worked hard over the year building and strengthening relationships with a plethora of vendors all over the world. Mistakes happen all the time at events, but even if it may be the mistake of a hired vendor, it’s a reflection on the event management team. It is important to go in as a team mentality, we never point blame, if one aspect fails, we all do. Which is why we strive for success in ALL aspects of an event. Whether it’s finding the perfect cuisines for your gala, or trying to find appropriate entertainment for your company’s work retreat, our team goes beyond just Debonair. We’ve built everlasting relationships over the years that help us continue to grow as a company. 

No matter the event type, it’s always important to identify the importance of having great staff and vendors. Whether it’s simply having someone to help your attendees with any questions or concerns or creating experiences through food or entertainment, properly managed and hosted events always push the envelope for a great moment.
