SOCIALLY IMMERSIVE
With the onset of the pandemic in 2020, dkkevents began to look for a better way for people to gather online for both personal and commercial applications, collaborating and co-creating with a variety of international artist groups experimenting with virtual parties, festivals, conferences, and immersive adventures.

Using technology-enhanced social interaction by leveraging a deep understanding in experience production, dkkevents launched dkkexperiences, where we continue to co-create on multiple platforms. We love to create meaningful experiences that increase understanding, connect people, and build communities.

OUR
CONVICTIONS

Every effort can make a difference.

At 
dkkevents, we strongly believe even the smallest effort can make the world a better place. We think considering the Earth in our actions is our responsibility as global citizens and it's one of our favorite things to do on our clients' behalf.


In fact, when dkkevents produced our first green experience in 2006, we were ahead of the trend. Today, we remain committed to being at the forefront of this progressive movement by producing the lowest-impact events possible.  The "green" in green event planning is still a relatively new idea and we are continually looking for ways to extend our commitment — from choosing plant-based cutlery that break down quickly, to sourcing organic produce grown within a 20-mile radius for our catering, to donating or recycling excess food and décor.  We’ve even begun a new endeavor we’re calling “Recenterpieces” that reimagines what one can mean when creating a centerpiece, utilizing re-useable objects and food that can later be donated to those in need rather than one-time-use disposable florals.  We’ve managed to keep our prices comparable with other event-planning companies, yet our products and services have a significantly reduced demand on the natural environment.

 

Being environmentally conscientious doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. We want you to relish in your fun and beautiful party, and smile knowing how earth-friendly it is.  Your event is sure to leave a lasting imprint in your guests’ memories, but a small footprint on the world.

OUR
CAPABILITIES

Your event would look great in green. 


Imagine if your celebration were not only unforgettable but also left the world a little better in the process. At dkkevents, we’ve made it our specialty to create stylish and sustainable events that are as extraordinary as they are eco-friendly. As Los Angeles’ first green event-planning business, dkkevents has developed to examine all event facets in order to produce a best-case scenario for environmental impact, financial efficiency, and sophistication. We guarantee your celebration will be so fabulous that your guests won’t realize they’re leaving virtually no footprint.

All – Here is the Vision Statement for your digital records. We have been doing an in depth rethinking of our Purpose, Mission, and Big Goals. Going back to 2012 when a “green” consultant, Deborah Kattler Kupetz, took an interest in us and  flew up from LA and met with our Board . . . .with lots of Skype calls before and after. This happened because John Valentino heard an interview with DKK “the leading green consultant of LA” on the radio and suggested I call her – he had to remind me a couple of times – but I did call her; a whirlwind of activity resulted in a more thorough sense of our strategic direction . Her mantra – everything you do (as an organization) must relate to a Big Goal – otherwise – do not do it. And for a venture to be worthy of being a Big Goal – it must have the potential of high visibility. And we should be ready to answer the questions “What do you do? “  and “what do you stand for?” in a compelling way. Thus the mantras “We create special places” and others which are included in the Vision Statement. We refine the Vision Statement at least  twice a year in an effort to keep our strategic direction clear.  Suspect your insights will generate further refinement! Thanks, Lee
