Not only do we love being event professionals, we love being attendees as well! Enjoying an event as an attendee allows us to learn about the industry and have fun at the same time. Here are a few of our personal favorite events:
Opus employees are experts at traveling for business. However, there is one aspect of traveling that never gets easier: being away from family. In honor of National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, we asked the resident Road Warrior moms and dads in the office to share their tips on staying connected to the fam while they’re on the road.
Building a brand depends on every point of contact that each employee has with customers, prospects, and partners. And despite being experts within respective disciplines, everyone is still occasionally bedeviled by a common high school nemesis: GRAMMAR! To help with the challenge, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes,” addressing misspellings, misuses, and misnomers in everyday communication. This quickly became the source of much dialogue around the proverbial water cooler, so we decided to make it a recurring feature on our blog. We hope you find it as useful as we do!
This month we dove into the two (or more) meanings of puns and double entendres, forecast common misuses of whether, hashed out the difficulties of maintaining grammar in hashtags, and made a ruling on the two spellings of judgement/judgment.
Looking at an internship in the events industry? Or maybe you’re interested in learning more about working in a fully integrated agency environment while still earning class credit. Opus is proud to offer multiple academic placements every year to help students get a taste of the working world, as well as some insight into and experience in the world of brand events and marketing.
We recently sat down with two of our summer interns—Jessica Hammock and Stephanie Kolb—to get a sense of their eight-week stint here at Opus.
Opus Agency’s team of event managers operates on the ground and in the moment, creating amazing experiences for our customers’ attendees. We recently managed to get one of them, Event Coordinator Madeline Golden, back in the office long enough to describe the joys, challenges, and mascot-related misadventures involved with being an event management pro.
