This is a testimonial regarding the creative, nimble, reliable, and successful work Vagabond Creative did creating a virtual experience for Progress
Lakeshore's annual awards celebration.
When it became apparent this fall that an in-person awards celebration wasn't prudent, Progress Lakeshore partnered with Vagabond Creative to develop a virtual method of recognizing the great nominees and award winners in our community. The project was complex: recognize 42 nominees, 5 award winners, 10 sponsors and Progress Lakeshore itself in a way that would be accessible to an external audience, would engage nominees, would maintain the element of surprise, would provide value to sponsors and would adhere to safety protocols brought on by the pandemic.
Vagabond Creative evaluated a variety of options and ultimately developed a model for our awards celebration that combined pre-recorded commercials for sponsors, a Zoom meeting with breakout rooms for
nominees/potential winners, and a live component for award sponsors, all livestreamed for an external audience to view in real time or at a later date. The result was an hour-long virtual event that was exciting, engaging, accessible and generated the buzz our awards celebration is known for. We consider this a highly successful event and one that we are proud of. Progress Lakeshore highly recommends Vagabond Creative, for creating, developing, and hosting virtual events and meetings. "
