The world-class event stylist, Gideon Hermosa took top personalities in the African events industry on a creative exploration of the best global events trends and techniques.
It was a two-day of mastering the very best techniques in events creation and decor, coupled with high octane networking, fine dining and happiness.
The exclusive masterclass which took place at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos from the 21 to 22 of August 2018, reeled out Hermosa’s winning tips on event styling, floral arrangement, and the secrets to his amazing transformation process.
In attendance were celebrated event planners and designers in the industry and some of the participants couldn’t help but express their excitements.
CEO of the Luxe Rose Event Rosemary Inegbese said, “I’m so glad I attended and I am definitely looking forward to more events like this. I met some of the most amazing people in my industry these past two days and I feel even more inspired and focused.”
For CEO of the Event Hive, Elaine Pappoe, who came all the way from Ghana, “It was so worth it. I learnt a lot and made new friends. Gideon was fantastic and very patient with us all.”
It was a hands-on for the attendees who were also assigned tasks, which they presented the next day to the class.
“You are never too old to learn new tricks that will set your business apart, especially if it’s with the renowned event designer Gideon Hermosa. These past two days was truly something, we created magic!
“I also met amazing people and made new friends but most of all learnt that together we can achieve more”, said CEO of Platinum Signature Luxury event, Margaret Mordi.
On the second day of the masterclass, a unique design was unveiled by Gideon Hermosa and Adenike Balogun the CEO of Diamond Ink Events, and the brain behind the master-class, to the excitement of all attendees.
“I am very passionate about event styling, building partnerships and bringing people together and I’m so glad that this masterclass was a huge success, this is the first of many more to come, I’m going to push till the event industry in Nigeria becomes above par like the rest of the world”, said Balogun.
Hermosa, who is outstandingly only 30-years-old, has racked up an impressive resume in the event styling scene. His success has been attributed to his ability to quickly adapt to any situation and blossom with the challenge that every unique event brings.
For him, a different wedding means different people, characters and ideas. As one of the most influential and sought after event stylists across the globe, it is hoped that his visit to Nigeria will spark a lot of interest in the event and wedding planning sector.
