RESPONSIBLE MANAGEMENT POLICY
Ikebana is a global corporate events agency that assists brands and companies in their event communication strategy by designing and producing professional events in France and abroad.
To create events with strong experiential potential for brands by implementing creative, technical, human, logistical and financial resources that are the operational reflection of the brand’s identity while promoting the destination in which the event takes place.
Scenography, concept, theme, we develop tailor-made events by enhancing the brand and strategy of our clients, respecting their constraints and their budget and by adding creative, innovative, digital and CSR content to achieve the desired impact.
We design and implement events with the support of a network of experts (our partners) covering all phases of the projects. We make proposals and recommendations for the choice of destination and service providers with a global vision of raising awareness about the eco-responsibility of the event.
We have 3 departments within the agency:
- A receptive department: hosting events in France for foreign clients
- A generalist department: following French clients for their event operations, whether in France or abroad
- An event production department: Scenography, design and technical.
Every day we strive to respect the values that define us: inventiveness, adaptability, team spirit and commitment.
We integrate into the entire event organisation process, and therefore into each of our decisions and approaches, duty of care (preventing risks on all our events and controlling the impact of our activities), inclusion (regular consultations with our stakeholders and taking their expectations into account), integrity (adherence to the ethical principles of the professional sector and the ISO20121 standard) and transparency (objective, regular and accessible information on the progress made with our approach).

We are also committed to passing on our know-how by sharing our knowledge and experience with future event professionals and within the industry.
