D. R. Dunlop & Associates, Inc. is a full-service meeting and event planning and management firm, in the game since 1987. Yup, we've been around awhile...and we're still standing. And, well...sometimes you just do need a seasoned veteran to get the job done right—qualified professionals with specialized expertise.
At the same time, we're very much rooted in the present, always scanning the future.
We provide single-component and full-project planning and management services, from advice, planning, program development, staging and more...through logistics to event delivery and post-event wrap-up.
The foundation of a succesful event is in the logistics—the careful and detailed advance planning, preparation and team building that sets the scene for the actual production.
We do logistics...quite well, actually...and can arrange and coordinate all, or just some of the details of your event program—the what, where, when and how of a meeting or event.
Effective protocol smoothes the way and polishes the performance, providing a strategic environment for the business at hand.
Simply put, protocol is the efficient and seamless stage management of all functions, official or otherwise, and an accepted and established procedure to guide how a specialized activity should be performed; it is involved at some level at all meetings, conferences and events.
Our protocol expertise, especially ceremonial and diplomatic protocol, is one of our specialities and comes in very handy quite often... more often than not, in fact.
We build and deliver customized meeting and event training workshops for non-meeting planners who need to learn how to do it. And, we offer coaching sessions if you need an emergency tutorial or individual support.
Really, we just want to dance. Our workshop and coaching enterprise is an outlet for all that hard-earned knowledge and experience. Seemed a shame to waste it.
All events have a look and feel. Even nothing is a look and feel.
Effective and cohesive events are branded with an appropriate and consistent identity that engages the eye, adds visual interest and impact, embodies your value proposition, gives your event an individual and instantly recognizable presence, and systematically reinforces the significance of the whole.
RedTable Design is our in-house graphic design and web development solution to your event project's identity and communications needs—a design and production capability that enables the seamless integration of branding, digital media, promotion, and communications collateral essentials into the overall production.
