TCMPi ChoiceEvents allow gift recipients to pick and choose the reward they want to receive rather than simply accepting the gift you want to give.

“Wait, really?! You’re kidding! This is amazing!”

“I can really pick out which one I want?!”

“This is so much better than what we got last year!”

As the Event Manager at TCMPi, I hear these exclamations and cheers at the start of virtually every ChoiceEvent I host. While these events take me all over the world from Hawaii to Mexico and the Caribbean, and even a quick trip to Monaco, there’s one commonality among them all: people like picking out their own gift. And they love it when the gift is a stylish new pair of  Classic Aviators or a shiny new Tommy Bahama watch.

So what’s a “ChoiceEvent?”

ChoiceEvents allow guests to actually interact with their gift. We all know that pillow gifts and generic tchotchkes can get old after a while. Why not spice things up! Sending your top employees on a tropical vacation? Add some fun by letting them try on an assortment of Ray-Ban sunglasses right on the beach. Hosting a national sales meeting? Have guests take a break from back-to-back meetings with a custom Tommy Bahama watch fitting. Whether you are hosting a meeting, an incentive trip, or a charity golf tournament, a ChoiceEvent adds an element of excitement and surprise. Some of the best events I have hosted are ones in which the guests are not even aware of the gift they are getting until they see a display table of sunglasses or watches – Surprise! Start trying them on!

How It Works

The best part about hosting a ChoiceEvent is that TCMPi takes care of everything. You tell us how many people are attending the event, where and when it’s being held, and we take over from there! Select from Ray-Ban, Oakley, Tommy Bahama, or Alex and Ani and we will provide you a variety of stylish products for your guests to select from. We bring all of the inventory directly to your event so guests can walk away with their new gift right then and there – how easy! No need to worry about having to set-up or tear down – we take care of that too.

Schedule your ChoiceEvent today!

Event Planner, Dianne Brennick is a master at remaining cool, calm and collected when potential disaster looms for the latest event. Here’s how she does it.

I love planning events. And I’m really good at it. In fact, I excel at taking my client’s needs and wishful thinking and turning them into a memory for dozens or even hundreds of guests. But I still get the heebie-jeebies every time the curtain goes up on a conference, sales meeting, seminar or awards ceremony. Continued…
