“Servus Circle Day” – June 20, 2017:
On Tuesday, June 20, 2017 join us as we celebrate Servus Circle Day at Servus Corporate Centre, 151 Karl Clark Road NW – rain or shine!

The event starts at 5:30 pm, with the official kick-off at 6:00 pm. This year, in addition to all of the activities and fun that we have planned, we’re calling on all of #yeg and area to come out and be part of a record breaking secret mission!

Ok, forget it! We’re too excited to keep it under wraps!

At this year’s Servus Circle Day event we’re attempting to break the world record for the Largest Human Currency Symbol – which will mean getting 2,000 people out and standing in the shape of a dollar sign! And we want you to be a part of the moment when Edmonton becomes a part of history! The attempt will take place at 6:00 pm, so we will need everyone to be onsite at that time.

Come out to this all ages event and enjoy music, activities, giveaways, food trucks and of course be part of something that will be one for the books. The Guiness Book of World Records that is!

Event Timings:
5:30 PM – event starts
6:00 PM – official kick off and world record attempt (please make sure you’re here for this time)
8:00 PM – event concludes

We haven’t even gotten to the best part! Servus will donate $1.00* to KidSport for every person that comes out to the event. KidSport a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under. Servus supports KidSport chapters and initiatives throughout the province which ensures young people have the opportunity to participate in sport regardless of the financial positions of their families. This also ensures minor sporting organizations have sufficient participation levels and income to provide their communities with the enrichment that sport brings to children’s lives.

We hope that you’ll …in addition to all of your family and friends… join us on June 20, 2017 at 5:30 pm as we celebrate community, each other, and a new world record! Don’t forget, we need 2,000 people to make this count and we can’t do it without you!

TEC Edmonton’s 15th Annual VenturePrize Awards Event:
And just in case you missed the photos from TEC Edmonton’s 15th Annual VenturePrize event earlier this month, they’re on the website at TEC Edmonton’s 15th Annual VenturePrize Awards.



In case you missed the BIG reveal, last week we were excited to launch “Tycoon Events Presents #YEG & Area Venue Featurettes”, featuring hidden or well-known gems in the City, and highlighting local businesses.

The program, which offers a choice between two packages, has been created to showcase and raise the profile of various venues in and around Edmonton, and to position venues in front of their target audience and provide greater awareness! Whether the general public looking for a fantastic space to host their next event, a bride-to-be, event planners, or companies and organizations in need of venue space. This opportunity not only increases a venue’s visibility online with their target audience, but also provides them with professional photographs that can be used in their marketing material and promotional collateral.

More information, and access to signup to the program, is available at Tycoon Events Presents #YEG & Area Venue Featurettes.

We received an overwhelmingly positive response with the announcement and are excited to start showcasing some of our City’s illustrious event spaces!



Last week we featured some of the podcasts that we liked to follow in order to stay up to date on what the latest and greatest in the industry is and be well versed in best practices.

Professional development, as many of you know, is so important to the Tycoon team.

Some of the podcasts that we like to follow are:
Meetings Podcast
Techsytalk Unscripted
The Event Tech Podcast
The Exposure Podcast
The Savvy Event Planner Podcast
Turn Of Events



Don’t forget to follow up on our various social media platforms as we’re always sending out new tips and tricks, event announcements, or sometimes, just a little Tycoon love!
