Private beach party


Le Castellet, France

An exclusive event for the top clients

What can you possibly invent or create for 300 top-tier clients that they have not already experienced? Often, brands have the difficult situation of competing for their client’s precious time on evenings and weekends where they could be otherwise doing personal things, which is why when a brand invites a client to a dinner or engagement activity it needs to be worth their while.

This out-of-the-box special event was a way to invite the most senior client to a unique and special experience that was different from all other corporate events they had participated in.

Unique beach party in Côte d’Azur

Genius Progetti created the concept behind this memorable, fun and unique beach party with a location and setting that was impossible to find elsewhere. The public location, one of the most picturesque coasts of Bendor Island with a panoramic view over the Côte d’Azur, was privatized and transformed with custom furnishings, complete audio and visual set-up, custom made dance floor and two-tier stage with dj booth.

It was difficult to find an adequate, luxury location that would house at least 300 clients in a memorable and grandiose setting. We did an extensive location search and invented an impressive concept for this event, which received incredible feedback from the client and guests alike.

The event schedule

Clients parked their luxury vehicles in a privatized public lot along the border of the city of Bendol where they boarded on one of 4 private ferry boats for the brief cruise around the island. They were greeted with a red carpet along the walk to their cocktail. For this casual yet chic evening, we opted-out of the traditional seated meal and a buffet with over 30 gourmet mini-entrées available all evening long and prepared fresh on-site by a chef in an open-air kitchen.

The welcome cocktail blended seamlessly into a casual dinner and the atmosphere dramatically changed as the sun set over the Mediterranean Sea and the live band ended their performance only for the DJ set to begin allowing guests to dance on the custom made dance floor over the sandy beach.
