Capabilities that rival NYC's top creative agencies.
The CooperKatz Creative Services practice designs, develops and executes a wide range of visual and multi-media creative elements – including business presentations, videos, exhibits and collateral materials. Our direct experience across a broad array of sectors fuels our ability to bring fresh perspectives and innovative creative solutions to client challenges.
Expertise in high-end events and corporate meeting production / staging.
CooperKatz Productions, a sub-set of our Creative Services practice, specializes in the production of high-end events and corporate meetings. These range from large scale business conferences and product launches, to specialized, high-end custom experiences. We work on a global scale, and engage with partners throughout the world to ensure a memorable, impactful experience for our clients.
This team drives the process from start to finish – collaborating with clients to conceive a meeting or event: develop themes and content; identify and prepare speakers; design and execute staging; and handle all aspects of on-site management. This team also oversees other complex, creative projects such as exhibits and permanent installations.
We’ve developed key partnerships with various specialty groups including Davis + Jaffe, LLC, which designs and implements highly specialized events for clients who demand unique experiences for themselves and their clients and DePalma Production, which specializes in staging and technical development.
Davis + Jaffe
Principals Ralph Katz of CooperKatz and Nancy Davis of Davis + Jaffe, have a 30 plus year relationship dating back to their time working together at Burson-Marsterller.
Global Wellness Summit
Davis + Jaffe produces the Global Wellness Summit, an annual, international, invitation-only event for 450 C-suite delegates from over 50 countries.
Since 2013, Davis + Jaffe has been fully responsible for this 3-day event in New Delhi, Marrakech, Mexico City, and this year in Kitzbühel, Austria.
Davis + Jaffe has responsibility for:
- Graphic design
- Printed and digital collateral
- Promotional campaigns
- Agenda, including keynote speakers, panels, breakouts
- Unique and memorable evening activities, including a Gala Event
- Staging and production
- Onsite management of all personnel, including local staff and DMCs
When MetLife wanted to take their senior executives and top institutional clients to Europe, as a thank you for their continued support, Davis + Jaffe created a memorable ten day excursion in Vienna and Prague. Every aspect of this project was in Davis + Jaffe's hands, from the invitations to the travel arrangements to the events and activities on site. A performance by the Vienna Boys Choir, private dinners in palaces and museums, a show with Lipizzaner stallions, private train cars on the Orient Express to transport the group between locations, and more.
Every event executed at the highest level. And since spouses were invited, Davis + Jaffe created a separate program for them if they chose not to attend the business sessions.
One aspect of these events that sets us apart is our commitment to making a positive difference in each location. Leaving a mark—on behalf of our clients—has proven to be a differentiating factor. It may be as simple as donating to a local shelter the leftover food from a dinner, or donating the floral centerpieces to a local hospital or nursing home. These “small acts” have left “great impressions” and we are aware of the value this holds for our clients.
For nearly 20 years, CooperKatz and DePalma Production have worked closely together, orchestrating major meetings and events for a wide array of corporate clients. Prior to the founding of each company, the principals had an 11-year relationship at Burson-Marsteller.
DePalma Production, together with CooperKatz, has conceived, produced and staged shows for a broad spectrum of clients, including The Association of National Advertisers, Discovery Networks, Amway, MPA-The Association of Magazine Media, Nielsen, New York Women in Communications (NYWICI), Wendy’s, VNU and Reader’s Digest.
