After-work party becomes an art form
The Haze Team, organisers of the popular ‘Milano Da Bere’ after-work parties in Nicosia for the past three years, are continuing with their themed-events, catering to the hundreds of young execs seeking to unwind after a stressful day at work, while also networking with other like-minded professionals in a more relaxed atmosphere, and away from the drab of the office.
Now preparing for the next event at the Patio Lounge and Bar off Ledra Street on Thursday, named “Milano da Bere - Galleria d’Arte”, the organisers believe they have come a long way in creating such a concept that has, admittedly, been imitated by others, often poorly, and never of the same standard.
“Haze Team has been operating in Cyprus for the past five years. Being young professionals in our mid-twenties, we felt the need that Cyprus was lacking when it came to innovative entertainment events that can offer young people quality entertainment,” said one of the co-founders.
“It all started on an amateur basis for event organising among friends, but very soon and due to growing demand it escalated into a fully professional event management team, nowadays being able to fulfil even the most demanding client needs. Currently, we cover a wide variety of event management services, from hosting our signature events to organising external corporate events.”
Looking back to when the after-work party idea was first conceived in 2012, the ‘Hazers’ as they findly call themselves, were influenced from the latest trends in the leading business centres across Europe and the US.
“We felt that something was missing from the Cyprus entertainment market. What was needed was a classy, professionally organised event that could fulfil the entertainment needs of young professionals, giving them the opportunity to network with fellow-professionals, often from rival companies, and bonding with their colleagues from work, while having a more relaxed mid-week entertainment.”
“Inspired from Italy, and more specifically from Milano and the aperitivo concept, we came up with the idea of afterwork events and the name of Milano Da Bere.”
The after-work event has been a phenomenal success “and now we have already reached the third consecutive season of Milano Da Bere. There are many reasons for this success. However, the key is the quality and value for money entertainment we rpovide.”
The Haze Team also incorporate in their events everything that has to do with art and live performances, whether this means music, dancing, acting, painting or any other form of art and expression.
Helping them along the way has been sponsor Cosmos Trading Ltd. that has identified the Milano Da Bere with its premium Chivas Regal. The events are supported by events marketeers MediaPro and the Financial Mirror if the media partner.
