We are super excited to be producing an event this coming Sunday, September 22nd, for Khazanah Nasional! They will be opening up a new office in beautiful downtown San Francisco. The event is Malaysian themed and they will be welcoming their Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak!
Khazanah Nasional Berhad is the Government of Malaysia’s strategic investment fund. They promote economic growth and make strategic investments on behalf of the Government. They have invested in over 50 major companies around the world which range over a broad spectrum of work.
ABCey was hired to manage all aspects of event planning and production including, AV, lighting, catering, decor, florals, entertainment, videography and photography, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
How many hours have you spent online, researching a local service? What if, instead of finding a few possible places, looking up their numbers, calling and leaving a few messages and hopefully hearing back from them in a few days, you could get up to 5 quotes from interested, qualified professionals within 24 hours?! Cue Thumbtack.
