  • Location – Portola Hotel & Spa, 2 Portola Plaza, Monterey, CA 93940

  • Attire – Business Casual
  • Audience – 350-400 attendees. Elected Directors of Public Water Agencies in CA, General Managers of Public Water Agencies in CA, Senior Level Staff of Public Water Agencies in CA, and others. ACWA is not itself government. They are a trade association however the Directors of these agencies are elected. The political split is more 50/50. They have a lot of agricultural folks and those in northern CA tend to lean more on the right. And then you have southern CA where you see more of the left leaning folks. Middle of the road would be safe.

Production Suggestions (Not Required)

  • Keep the appearance a surprise -- only let the attendees know that a special guest/s will be addressing the group;
  • Have a few "Secret Service Agents" casing the room prior to the appearance to create ambiance and anticipation -- we use actors or local security guards dressed in dark suits, white shirts, dark ties, and ear pieces;
    • At larger budget events, we have actually had "Secret Service Agents" stationed at the doors to the meeting room to pat down, scan with metal detectors, and use "Bomb Sniffing Dogs" on attendees;
    • At other events, we have slipped "Top Secret Questionnaires" under attendees' hotel room doors on the evening before the performance; and
  • If having an in-character post-performance meet & greet photo session, we recommend a designated "Photo Booth" with either a "Presidential Set" including blue velvet drape, American flags, and Presidential seal, or a "Red Carpet Set" with association/sponsor logo wall backdrop, red carpet, red velvet rope, and gold stanchions.

NOTE: We can help with all of the above, if you need our help.
