The Connection Lounge is a monthly or 3-month online event planning program and portal for event planners, property managers, and activity coordinators who want to create meaningful connections with their residential communities.
Easy-to-organize, unique, and fun events are what we want to help you create. Running successful events requires organization, creativity, and the ability to deliver quality experiences to your tenants. Without clear guidelines or structure from building owners or body corporate, event planning can be extremely stressful.
Connection Lounge can fast-track your planning process and save you hours of research and coordination. Luxegiving has an extensive track record of unique and successful events, and we would love to work with you, too.

ENGAGED AND CREATIVE ACTIVITY COORDINATORS
Whether you handle everything from resident safety to having one-on-one meetings with struggling residents, activity coordinators can wear a lot of hats in their residential properties. Connection Lounge can help you develop fun and community building events while helping you create customized marketing materials that let you reach everyone in your building.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN ONE PLACE
You can find all the materials for each monthly session as part of your member dashboard, and some custom items may be emailed to you as well for easy access. All package materials, video tutorials, printables, guides, graphics, and additional resources are within your online member dashboard. You’ll also be able to ask questions and get feedback from program organizers online or through our office hours.
HOW MUCH TIME YOU’LL NEED
Each monthly package includes essential guides, recipes, entertainment sheets and more. These items can be read and worked on at your own pace, as well as video tutorials detailing the steps to make your event a success. Though the videos themselves are short and the recipes are simple and easy to follow, we recommend that you set aside one hour of your time to go through all the materials and follow along with the instructions.
TIMING OF THE PROGRAM
The Connection Lounge will be presented in monthly segments where you will get a full event kit for one event every month, for only $99 a month for the fully customized service. We encourage you to register for this program as early as possible, as space will be limited for our first edition of the Connection Lounge program.
Registration for this upcoming Connection Lounge session is April 16th – April 30th, 2019.
Videos from past months will continue to be available for the duration of your subscription. So if you are working a full-time job, working a part-time job, or dealing with an unpredictable work schedule, you can revisit the material at any time.
It can sometimes be difficult to know the best timing for event activities and create chaos on the day of the event. Our event timelines help you schedule deliveries, team responsibilities, marketing items, and day of event preparation.
Want to know how to set up event decorations, cook healthy and easy to follow recipes, and get quick tips on making your event organizing more efficient? We have created a series of video tutorials that break down what you need to do to prepare for your event. Each event theme has its own series of videos teaching:
- Intro to Event Themes and Digital Tools
- Event Decorations
- Themed Food Recipes and Step by Step Instructions
- Themes Drink Recipes and Step by Step Instructions
- Food Display Techniques
With advances in grocery delivery, grocery shopping has never been so easy. Use our serving guides to determine how much to buy for your expected event size, and schedule your food delivery days or weeks in advance.
Cooking and catering can be the most challenging part of event planning. Managing portion sizes and dietary requirements can be difficult to work with, so let us help you with creating an event menu that brings your communities together. These recipes are easily printable or viewable on your tablet so that you can follow along, and easily convert portion sizes based on your needs.
Do you constantly have people asking “What is this? Is this gluten-free? Do you have any vegetarian options?” during your events, and stopping you from keeping your event on track? We will take our suggested event recipes for each event and make a custom menu tag, with your logo and building name, for each dish and drink. Ingredients will be listed on the back, along with labels for items that are vegan or vegetarian-friendly.
Let us create your event flyer for display in your lobby or on your social media. We will customize your flyer with your personal event details, including your address and event venue. We will also include the complex logo, social media pages and website using creative and eye-catching graphics.
Get the word out to everyone in your building. Physical invitations still hold a certain charm when people receive them, so let’s hit those doors and mailboxes. If your complex is going paperless, no problem! Send these invitations via email or on your website. These invitations show the event date, time, venue and suggested attire.
CUSTOM FACEBOOK EVENT COVER
Share your events with your community on Facebook? We will design a custom event cover photo to help promote engagement with your tenants online. Event Covers will show the event date and theme, so residents can grasp the essentials as soon as they see it.
CUSTOM FACEBOOK FILTER
Another way to promote your events is to create a custom event frame on Facebook. Frames allow people within a certain distance of your building to add your event graphics to their profile picture on Facebook. This has the double effect of creating a sense of community among those sharing the frame, as well as promoting your complex to your resident’s online friends.
CUSTOM SNAPCHAT FILTER
Aiming for a young adult audience? Snapchat is a great way to reach out to a younger crowd, and there’s no better way to promote event attendance and participation than the creation of a Snapchat filter. The filters will be customized for your building for each event.
SOCIAL MEDIA GRAPHICS – 10 PACK
Sharing graphics about your event on social media is a breeze with our 10 pack of social media graphics! Get quotes, jokes, event activities and games, and historical facts to help boost your marketing content.
Carefully curated music playlists are sure to be a hit with your residents. If you already have Spotify, then you can use your paid account for uninterrupted music entertainment.
ENTERTAINMENT & ACTIVITY GUIDE
Want to provide engaging activities and entertainment options for your resident attendees? We will recommend on-theme and family-friendly games, activities, movies, and ice-breakers to help your tenants interact, with themselves and you.
