Event Season is in Full Swing in Denver and at J. Kent Staffing!
Posted by: Emma Berdanier on August 6th, 2019
We are currently in the heart of Denver’s busy event season, which typically runs from May through October of each year. J. Kent Staffing and its temporary employees love to keep busy with a variety of events – from sporting events to concerts, to fairs, to trade shows, and conventions. J. Kent’s Recruiters are constantly vetting and hiring event staff to help with registration, ticket taking, ushering, bag checking, concourse monitoring, greeting attendees, and the like.
Denver’s Exciting New Convention Center — Perfect for Event Season!
Situated in the heart of Colorado, with both the Rocky Mountains and a vibrant city close by, the new Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center near Denver International Airport (DIA) is a great space for conferences large and small. With more than 486,000 square feet of convention space, this center is perfect for housing multiple conventions at a time. In the height of Denver’s busy event season, this venue is always packed!
The Gaylord, located in Aurora, Colorado, also offers a hotel attached to the convention center, and numerous restaurants, markets, and other amenities. Overall, it’s an exciting new convention venue located near busy DIA that offers a change of scenery and location from Denver’s downtown convention centers.
Our Latest Event – A Cosmetics Sales Conference
Over 4 days in July, J. Kent provided temporary staff for a large cosmetics sales conference at the Gaylord where we hired 40 employees to work upwards of 90 shifts. This was our first event at The Gaylord and it was a huge success! Our staff was tasked with setting up and takedown and greeting and guiding attendees throughout all four days of the conference. Our client had high standards for this conference and knew that J. Kent would be able to meet them given our successful track record with event staffing and our proven ability to not only meet but to exceed our customers’ expectations.
Our Client was thrilled with the quality of the workers we supplied, and our employees, in turn, enjoyed the work and being an important part of a successful conference. Many of our event staff work conferences like these as something to fit into their already busy schedule or something to keep them working while they search for permanent employment. At J. Kent we never have a shortage of seasoned, well-vetted, and exceptional employees ready to staff any need that arises!
