Contact: Sean Gibbons Company: TOCA Events Web Address: Established in 2010, TOCA is a privately owned company that delivers services related to event planning, production, catering, and logistics. From thematic environments and immersive receptions to exquisite tablescapes, custom fabrication, and unique performances, TOCA provides conceptual solutions that are designed to engage, celebrate, and inspire. Initially, TOCA was created to fulfil the increasing demands of US-based clients for a company that provides a superior level of service for the production of overseas events. Its first project involved the provision of comprehensive destination management services for a highprofile global conference in San Paulo, Brazil, which hosted renowned dignitaries like former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and several Latin American industry leaders. Whilst it has offices on three continents, the majority of TOCA’s projects are still produced in the US or internationally for US-based clients. In every project it works on, TOCA takes the same approach, which is based on passion, creativity, and detail. It considers the success of all its projects equally important, but the requirements of each client and destination are varied. For this reason, it listens to their requests and caters to their needs. Over the years, TOCA has become recognised across the world for its creative design and custom fabrication. It has worked with an incredible portfolio of clients, including Fortune 100 corporations, major sporting events, and high-profile non-profit organisations. Impressively, TOCA has served some of the world’s most well-known Fortune 500 corporations for more than 15 years. This includes Boston Consulting Group, JP Morgan Chase, Ameriprise Financial, NFL Super Bowl, INTA, TelevisaUnivision, HISTORY Channel, Banco Itau, IMG, Masters Golf Championship, LiV Golf Championship, Siemens, Visa, AT&T, Endeavor, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, and Citibank. TOCA believes that it has earned its reputation due to its unique way of doing things. Unlike those who operate based on the traditional DMC model, the company is equipped with an award-winning team of in-house designers and architects who produce original designs, toscale floor plans, construction elevations, and working drawings. Then, its excellent carpenters bring these conceptualised illustrations to life. Its Miami team even have an in-house floral design and production team. TOCA’s use of internal resources eliminates the need for third-party outsourcing, effectively saving money for clients. Leveraging this wealth of in-house expertise as well as that of a select global network, TOCA produces unique and memorable experiences that enable clients to achieve their event objectives. The company’s creatively produced projects are guaranteed to function smoothly and are designed to meet the client’s distinct requirements. In every aspect of the events it delivers, the visual and performing arts experience of its senior management shines through in an abundance of creativity and originality. Through the work it does, TOCA touches the dreams and emotions of its clients, providing the highest standards of design and production services to create events that are unlike any other. For this reason, the company has been awarded Best Event Planning & Logistics Company in the Global Excellence Awards 2023.
