Home page of Sheinin & Company’s new website.

We recently launched a new website for our client, Sheinin & Company, a tax-specialty firm in downtown Vancouver.

We started working with Sheinin & Company back in 2017 and assisted the company through its relaunch and rebrand. Since then, a fresh new website has always been next on the to-do list! 

We’re so pleased with how this website turned out. Not only does it incorporate Sheinin & Company’s brand, but it also encompasses the West Coast / Vancouver feel that they were going for and many key features that can be found in their bright and vibrant office today!

Show Your Tenants Some Love

Elettra regularly organizes tenant appreciation events for our commercial property management clients. These events are a great way for property managers to show gratitude to their tenants. These events foster a sense of community and allow tenants to get to know each other.

If you’re considering hosting an event for your tenants, here’s our primer on how to get started.

Choose a theme

A theme is a great way to tie an event together. We love brainstorming and coming up with fun and creative ideas. Event theme will often correspond with a time of year or holiday. 

Most recently, we organized an event called Winterfest (Canadian style). Tenants were invited to enjoy classic Canadian treats, including Cabane a Sucre (maple sugar rolled on ice), Beaver Tails, and hot chocolate. Oh, and I must not forget the Canadian-themed photo booth and props!  

Photobooth fun at the WinterFest tenant event!

And repeat

It will depend on your budget, but seasonally is optimal. An event is a fun way to launch into or say goodbye to a season.

It sounds expensive

We’ve worked with a wide range of budgets. It’s really up to the client on how big or small they want to go. Tenant appreciation events might seem like a big out-of-pocket expense in the short-term but maintaining good tenant relationships are important in the long-term.

Occasionally bring the event to your tenants

Sometimes it’s nice to surprise tenants in their office. One way to do this is to get a mobile coffee cart and visit each office with freshly baked pastries and hot coffee? Or keep it even simpler and deliver a basket of goodies to each office. Tenants will appreciate even the smallest acts of kindness.

Don’t forget to let everyone know

It’s really important to start promoting your event a couple weeks in advance. With the event theme in mind, create an eye-catching collateral design. Next, develop posters, invitations, and digital graphics for email, TV and elevator screens, touchscreen directories, etc.  Try and communicate your event at every touchpoint possible.

The Best Hike in Downtown Vancouver is Back for its Fifth Year
Screenshot 2019-05-30 10.32.00.png

Every Tuesday in March, thousands of Vancouverites await their chance to take on the best hike in downtown Vancouver, the Harbour Centre Urban Grind.  

The Urban Grind is a 633-step stair climbing challenge that takes participants to the top of the Vancouver Lookout. At the top, 'Grinders' are rewarded with a stunning view of Vancouver, DJ entertainment, and a refreshing Steamworks beer. Additionally, every participant received a $5 Food Court voucher to redeem at any of the Food Court vendors downstairs. 

On the last night, participants are invited to pick up a chip-timer and set a personal record or compete for the fastest time. Outstandingly, the fastest male and female completed the circuit in under four and a half minutes and won the grand prize of two tickets for the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, BC. 

Anyone who used the hashtag #urbangrindyvr on social media had a chance to win some weekly prizes.

Check out Harbour Centre’s new Urban Grind Instagram page @urbangrindyvr and watch this year’s event video here:

We love working with Harbour Centre and the Vancouver Lookout on this annual event. It’s one you don’t want to miss!

Helping One Another: Tsleil-Waututh Nation Annual Report

Elettra had the honour of working with Tsleil-Waututh Nation on the Nation’s most recent annual report. The theme of the report was the legacy of Leonard George, late Chief of the Nation and inspiration to countless people locally, nationally, and internationally.

Elettra provided project management, copywriting and design services. Our Art Director, Lisa Edward, conceived of the stunning timeline that graces the cover and inside front leaf. We are very proud of this work!
