At Corinthian Events we love a challenge - and this Gala evening for 700 was just that!

We planned an impeccable evening fit for royalty, perfectly timed, and filled to the brim with decadence, entertainment, history and elegance in the historic Boston theatre district, at the impressive Boch Center - Wang Theatre.

Private luxury motor coaches were staged at hotels throughout the city, transporting all seven hundred guests from their lobbies to the theater. As guests disembarked their coaches, they walked along red carpet into the foyer of the theatre where our professional staff welcomed and checked them in using iPad technology. This ensured we knew exactly how many and which guests were present at a moment's notice.


As guests continued through the foyer into the Grand Lobby, they were guided to photographers who were poised and ready to snap mementoes of the guests in front of the flanking step and repeats.

With photos taken, guests were offered a glass of champagne and had a moment to take in the grandeur of the space while enjoying passed hors-d'oeuvres and ethereal sounds of a classical quartet. After some time spent mingling, trumpeters announced the next portion of the evening and the doors to the theater were opened as guests found a seat for brief program and video. The video was projected onto a screen in front of the stage curtains which were pulled tightly closed.


Once the video was complete, the projection screen rose and the curtains ceremoniously opened, delighting guests with an elaborately set dinner – stage center!


Surprised guests walked onto the stage of the historic Wang Center Theater and found their seats, to the music from a live jazz quartet.


The table décor was elegant; deep navy-blue linens, rich gold colored napkins, gold foil detailed menus, gold mercury glass shimmering votives, and stunning floral centerpieces.

The decadent three-course dinner was accompanied by a variety of entertainment. The first performance during dinner was by the Harvard Krokodiloes, followed by an epic opera duet. The man sang first, followed by a performance by the woman, and finally culminating in an incredible duet ending on a small stage in the center of the guest's tables.


As the evening ended, guests were guided back to the entryway where luxury coaches were staged, ready to whisk them back to their hotels.

It was an event three years in the making. From the venue to the décor and the program, every detail was meticulously culled to ensure an evening like no other. As guests made their way back to their hotels they left with a feeling that they had experienced a very special night, a night to remember.

TouchTomorrow is an annual festival of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math held at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Launched in 2012 as a celebration of WPI's designation as host of NASA's Sample Return Robot Challenge, a NASA Centennial Challenge, TouchTomorrow has now completed its 6th festival!

By design, a Centennial challenge is set to last only 5 years so this marked the first year WPI has hosted TouchTomorrow without the challenge. So, what did that mean for WPI? It meant that they would dig in and focus on an incredible day and ensure there were lots of educational and fun things to explore!


Our Corinthian Events team has worked with WPI for the last 4 years; supporting the festival by handling logistics including tenting and rental needs as well as onsite check-in. For the last two years, we have also designed a free event app for guests.


Last year's TouchTomorrow app was informative; providing schedules and information about exhibitors. But, after reviewing last year's post-event feedback surveys, we learned that the app could be even better with a GPS enabled map. This year – we did just that! Each exhibit, information station, check-in point, shuttle stop, and tent was loaded in the app according to their GPS coordinates.

Not only could guests view where on campus each exhibit was located but they could get walking directions to it!


TouchTomorrow 2017 was an incredible day, hosting 10,000 people including attendees, presenters, staff and volunteers to inspire kids and show educators fun ways to teach STEM. And, without the backing of the NASA Centennial Challenge, the festival has proven to be able to stand on its own – generating excitement and a love of learning.

Corinthian Events is proud to have helped WPI make TouchTomorrow 2017 a success!
