Mike Bruines － DME.events的创始人兼总监 － Founder & Director, DME.events, GZ, HK, SZ & Bali.
DB: 你什么时候成立了DME.events ？为什么？When did you start DME.events and why?
DME.events 在2015年时成立－在意识到华南区需要许多高端专业的活动策划的机遇后。DME.events 想突破现有的活动策划市场的局限，以提供客户更精心优质、美轮美奂的活动派对。
DME.events was established in 2015 – after noticing opportunities for specialised and high-quality events in South China. DME.events wants to push the boundaries of the established event market, by delivering beautiful events for our clients and taking private events to the next level.
DB: 您的客户群都来自哪里？Where does your customer base come from?
Our Customers mainly come from the Hospitality and F&B industry – which is where we started. Now in our 3rd year of operations, we grew our customer base to include the corporate and private sector (e.g. real-estate, finance, technology, etc.), as well as non-profit NGO’s and consulates that are trusting DME with their event needs. Contact us for our latest credentials (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit our website for more information (www.dme.events)!
DB: DME.events如何满足不同客户的不同需求？How does DME.events deal with a wide range of demands from your different customers?
DME.events is essentially a full-service event management agency and take our customers from brainstorm to proposal using our in-house expertise of events (e.g. Creativity & Design). Then, it is our Event Team that takes over and ensures high-quality productions and detailed event execution. Our customers love to work with us because of our team’s service orientation, our (local) network and event know-how. Being able to cater to even the last-minute requests is what allows us to truly deliver on our customer’s event needs.
DB: 在准备活动期间，您曾遇到过最大的困难是什么？您是如何解决的？What was the biggest difficulty you have encountered when preparing an event? How did you solve it?
When it comes to events, you only have one shot at impressing your client and guests. It is essential that the event is delivered with precision and eye for detail. That said, based on years of event experience, we could tell you about countless ‘difficulties’ during event preparations. At DME we believe it is flexibility, creative & out-of-the-box thinking that will assist with fast and effective problem-solving (should the need arise). But you can use the same skills to look for, prepare and eliminate possible difficulties. And we push our team to do exactly that. From preparing minute-to-minute rundowns to calculating the electricity usage maximums, or even something as simple as bringing extra golden marker pens for the signing backdrops – we are trained to deal with the general pressures and any other difficulties of organising events.
DB: DME.events已经举办过许多不同的活动，哪一场让您最印象深刻？为什么？ DME.events has organised a lot of different types of events. Which one is the most impressive to you and why?
在DME.events 的每一天都是缤纷不同的，其源于我们喜欢活动类型与地点的多样性。无论是舞会、公司晚宴、别样的餐饮项目或是私人活动，我们都十分乐意并享受筹划它们－挑战与回报并存。即便如此，DME的本质就是乐于挑战稀有或独特的地点－它们让我们走得更远。无论是地下空间、屋顶、阁楼或是空旷的泳池－这些都是我们活动地点的必挑清单。有两场活动仍让我们印象深刻，一个是在香港W酒店的此时‘静默’Disco 派对（在76楼屋顶的泳池里），另一个是广州皇冠假日酒店63楼楼顶的直升机场派对。为什么会挑着两个呢？因为大家都对这两场活动都异常兴奋、好评如潮－当日结束后，我们的客户十分认可这两场活动，因为他们都从来未见过活动可以这么玩，对于他们而言，这是人生中必不可缺的独特经历！
Every day at DME.events is different and we love the diversity in type and location of events. Whether our Team is planning ballroom corporate dinners, unique F&B projects or Private events, we enjoy them all for different reasons – they all have their challenges and rewards. That said, rare or unique locations are a part of the DME ‘DNA’ – they make us go the extra mile. Underground, Rooftops, Penthouses, or empty Swimming pools – all have a special place on our location lists. Two events that really stood out for us were the W Hotel Hong Kong’s Silent Disco Party (76th rooftop in their empty swimming pool), and The Helipad party, on Guangzhou’s Crowne Plaza Guangzhou City Centre’s 63rd Floor Helipad. Why? The public’s response to these two events were so positively overwhelming – and at the end of the day, we didn’t organise these events for ourselves… but for our guests/clients – so that they take away, never-seen-before, life-long unique experiences!
