At VDA, our clients – and their goals – drive our designs, allowing us to craft memorable events, catered to client objectives, that build connections and drive responses in attendees.

To make your vision a reality, VDA employs a full-time team of executive staff, creative designers, producers, and production managers with areas of expertise in lighting, audiovisual, theatrical set design, and event technology. Our Massachusetts headquarters is home to a workshop of exceedingly skilled, educated, and efficient craftspeople, each trained to produce a high caliber of work.

Experiential Marketing Strategy

In today’s consumer culture, our lives are bombarded by all different types of brand messaging – from social media, to online ads specifically catered to our cookies and browsing history, our inboxes are spammed with marketing emails that many of us decide to send straight to the junk box. Brands are trying to speak louder to break through the noise, yet how effective is raising your voice when everybody else is doing the same? Therein lies the key differentiator between experiential, live events, and any other marketing effort or strategy.

Set your brand apart by letting your customers experience your brand in real life. We do your research, generate original ideas, and together with you, create and deliver experiential strategy concepts, aligned with your marketing goals, that transform consumers into fans who can’t wait to tell the world about your brand. Instead of shouting, let your community do it for you.

Creative and Event Design

At VDA, we know that brand is so much more than a logo placed statically on a product or a website. Your brand is an ephemeral feeling – a constantly evolving message – and the way your brand is perceived by your clients, customers, and employees is a reflection of your product or company. Together we will create and activate, visually eye-catching, customized designs, that incorporate your strategic vision to build innovative, engaging experiences, where people connect seamlessly to your brand.

Consumers enjoy and desire interactivity, and as your event partner, we endeavor to create the ultimate engagement factor that will bring your brand to life, re-enforcing your brand identity in the 3D world. Your goals drive our design; we consider how we can create a connection, a memory, and a lasting impression in your consumers that will help you reach your goals and metrics. Therefore, we don’t create events for you, but with you, focused on your attendees.
