Valentino – Paris Fashion Week 2019

Paris Fashion Week, for several years now, has become one of Balsamo's regular events. Three fashion shows for three different Maisons: the 2019 edition was particularly challenging. 
The most demanding event in terms of resources and number of vehicles involved was the Valentino show.
The Italian Maison decided to commission us the entire mobility planning for their guests. The team managed the people's mobility during the fashion show and on some personalized experiences planned in the following days.
In this way, the guests could enjoy their experience in Paris while doing their favourite activities, in punctuality with their packed schedule.
Sixty couples of VIP and VIC guests, coming from all five continents to spend three days in the French capital between events and re-see. When you have such packed schedules to respect, constant active coordination is the key to success.

New York

Fashion Brand – 2018

It is always great taking part in New York Fashion Week, its schedule is always packed with many glamorous events such as the fashion's biggest night out, the Met Gala.
In 2018 Balsamo's team moved to the Big Apple with a mission: to better coordinate the services for the Cruise Collection show of one of the most iconic Italian high fashion brands.
For an entire week, the team integrated with the client's staff that was in charge of the event, united by the shared value of paying attention to every small detail.

In the 3 days that the guests spent in the city, everything needed to be foreseen and planned.
It could be defined as a "turnkey" mobility project: the client did not give many guidelines or limits, but they expected nothing less than a perfect result.
Approximately three hundred guests were flying from over the world.
They were VICs, celebrities and press professionals. 
For all of them, Balsamo provided door to door services and airport greeters.

Once in NYC, each of them had dedicated vehicles and drivers at disposal, special welcome kits onboard, everything customized.
Many service managers were needed to manage the large fleet of Cadillac Escalades in the different venues, hotels and restaurants, both remotely and on-site. In the meanwhile, they also had to track each movement of guests and keep the client updated.
Besides us, another much more well-known Bergamasco had been involved for the catering of the event: Chef Cerea and his crew from "Da Vittorio" Restaurant. On that night in May, when all the spotlights went out, the teams crossed paths while leaving the venue.

Among the clients that Balsamo supported in this unprecedented scenario, ENI stands out for the number of activated services in four different continents.
Balsamo's specialists promptly redacted a strict safety protocol that includes strict procedures that every driver needs to follow, starting from personal protective equipment to the sanitation of the vehicles and the optimization of the operations to avoid risks of infection.
Anywhere in the world, the drivers must comply with the measures and fill in a checklist that can be shared with the clients.

2015 - a breakout year for Milan and Balsamo

2015 was a year to remember for Milan, host of the World Expo and countless other events.
Such relevant occasions always attract many high-profile personalities from all over the world, i.e. diplomats, politicians, scholars and celebrities.
As always, Balsamo took care of the ground mobility of many of them, providing impeccable service: any vehicle they needed, and 24/7 support.
Since the hectic scenario, it was difficult for the guests to keep up with their schedules, and last-minute requests were constantly around the corner.
Nothing that Balsamo Service Managers could not handle: in fact, everything was under control, and the guests were happily satisfied.

One of the many other memorable events that Milan hosted in 2015 was the MTV Europe Musc Awards, celebrated in two different locations: Piazza del Duomo, the city main's square, and the Mediolanum Forum sports arena.
It was one of the first times that the Balsamo team managed more than a hundred vehicles for a single event.
Despite the tireless week of hard work, everyone at Balsamo remembers it as the unforgettable and exciting experience that it was!
