      Hello, I’m in need of a name for an event planning company I am starting in Southern CA. I would like it to stand out, but obviously for the right reasons. I am interested in planning for corporate events as well as social events, so I don’t want to pigeonhole myself into the wedding industry only by using overly romantic, flowery or “feminine” words like “blissful,” “chic,” or “elegant.” Now don’t get me wrong, I do want to appeal to the wedding industry, but I also want a name that can be taken seriously by corporate folks as well.

      Some existing event planning company names I like are “Bravo Productions” and “A Perfect Production.”  Both names are neutral, yet instill confidence and can appeal to both social and corporate interests.

      Another name I initially liked was A Splendid Soirée, but I hesitate to use the word “soirée” because corporate events will include non-celebratory events such as trade shows.

      Please Help!

      Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!  Open Season sounds really cool, Quark.  I only hesitate because it bring to mind hunting.  No problem with that–just not what I’m going for.  I like the term Ovation, Franny.  Maybe I can incorporate that somehow….

        Sure, but Virgin, etc. bring to mind things other than airplanes, etc.

        Re-contextualizing a word or term is a way to stand out (to brand ). These days people are quite used to it and Snark has written manifestos about this (beginning before people were used to it). He’s better suited to explain. If the brand name has a bit of panache and is not disgusting or disturbing, it’s really not a problem, but a positive. In this case, Open Season will no longer mean hunting in as far as event planning is concerned.

        …that’s my speech 🙂

        Franny’s Ovation and especially Three Cheers are strong for sure, but may be saturated in the EP-space upon investigation.

        Pro tip – I often find the best brand is contained in people’s initial entry (been playing that game here for some years). In this case, the best brand for your business is – Pigeonhole!
        …tho maybe Hunting Squab is better 😉

        Cheers

      (You’re welcome; thanks for your feedback. A few more to consider along the lines of Ovation. Good luck.)

      Kudos

      Three Cheers

      Superlative

      Ocean Season (an attempt to follow up on Quark’s “Open Season,” which I agree sounds cool.)

      With a nod to the great Velvet Underground:

      All Tomorrow’s Parties

      Thanks to OCAdMan for that, over on the Bucket List website name project thread.
