Sit & Sip Event Highlights SitOnIt Seating and IDEON in Pennsylvania
September 05, 2014
SitOnIt Seating and IDEON recently co-hosted a wine and design event with Spectrum, A Certified Herman Miller Dealer based in Pennsylvania. Guests from the A&D community were invited to view and experience products while enjoying wines from Russian River Vineyards, courtesy of Mike Mekjian, Principal and Co-Founder of SitOnIt Seating and IDEON.
The event was held in at Spectrum’s Showroom outside of Philadelphia. The organizers were thoughtful about every detail of the evening from the layout of the space, to the décor and food pairings – nothing was overlooked. Organizers created different stations created that highlighted a SitOnIt Chair or IDEON product, a paired appetizer and a wine from Russian River Vineyards that complemented the bite.
The guest list consisted of more than thirty designers and representatives of A&D firms. Guests were escorted to each station with the tour concluding in the lounge where they were welcomed to mingle while having another taste of their favorite wine. The night was capped with a raffle and three winners took home a selection of wines or their very own SitOnIt Chair.
Mike Mekjian’s accessibility and knowledge about the products and the wine made the night feel personal and created an environment for open dialogue about product and potential opportunities. Since SitOnIt Seating, IDEON and Spectrum see relationship-building as an important part of their business, this event gave them the opportunity to meet and get to know prospective customers in a casual environment.
Peggy Kelly, the President of Spectrum, remarked, “we really enjoyed the opportunity to partner with SitOnIt at this special event. It gave Spectrum the opportunity to spend time with our local design community and help the designers understand the breadth of products SitOnIt has to offer, in a fun, engaging way. Rave reviews after the event.”
The mood of the evening was fun, light and informative. As SOI and IDEON help organize these events across the country and impress attendees, the company is earning a solid reputation not just for value, but for thoughtful products in the A&D community.
