CIG Open House

In true Colorado fashion, CIG hosted a Colorado-themed open house in November 2015 to showcase our new digs and our new brand. And in true CIG fashion, this party was not short on libations and tasty cuisine. The mixologist from Ste. Elle’s was the belle of the ball concocting the signature whiskey-based cocktail – the“CIG New-fashioned” – that included a little arson to spice things up.

The menu – from cocktails to cuisine – included everything locally grown: a “do-it-yourself’ green chili bar stocked with jalapeño cheddar corn bread croutons and cilantro onion relish; a slider bar where guests chose from a trout, buffalo or portabella mushroom slider with home-style chips; and a Little Man Ice Cream station whose most popular flavor was the “Space Junkie” full of chocolate chunks and marshmallow swirl.

Fitting four food stations, two bars, a photo booth, along with cocktail tables and seating room for guests was no easy task, but the CIG team’s creative use of space provided a very welcoming and fun environment for nearly 300 guests.

Speaking of fun, the photo booth room was a popular one. CIG-ers stocked the room with a variety of Colorado props. Guests struck a pose with anything from Broncos gear and funky glasses to a bull riding cutout and “Colorado Native” bumper stickers. And for many, one photo wasn’t enough; they had to try out the mustache and pig nose too.

CIG didn’t skip a beat when it came to the small details, hand-making each bouquet, creating a construction-themed directional sign and making a playlist of all local artists.

“The entire party was on-point.”

“The CIG open house was loads of fun and offered a terrific opportunity for networking,” said Tina Jaquez, RTD Public Relations Manager. “The entire party was on-point – from the interactive food stations and cocktail bars, right down to the color coordination of the CIG brand carried throughout the event. That attention to detail made for a perfect festive affair!”

Our fellow clients and friends did not go home empty handed; everyone was gifted a glass depicting the new and improved CIG brand. Those who have known CIG for years have seen how we have evolved over the past decade – and our new brand symbolizes our company’s growth. We are not just in the transportation and infrastructure realm but have added some new “triangles” including hospitality, tourism, non-profit, event planning, graphic design and training.
