“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.” That was the philosophy Gregg Whittecar and Arron Rimpley adopted when they founded their event space G.O.A.T, acronym of Gallery of Amazing Things. With that mantra at heart, they vowed to create an event space for their clients that would take their breath away, leave guests buzzing for weeks, and linger in their memory for a lifetime.
In order to live up to this promise of leaving their clients speechless, the founders designed a space where event guests can mingle among stunning pieces of art from around the world. One glimpse inside the Gallery of Amazing Things shows that they have achieved this ambitious goal, and their accolades prove that they have exceeded the expectations of their clients.
The Gallery of Amazing Things is a customized approach towards creating a unique venue. Clients can envision and execute almost anything their minds can imagine within the 50,000 square-foot space. It offers the latest in style and innovation, with lighting, sound and a fully modular space that makes the Gallery of Amazing Things a state-of-the-art place. Whether the event lasts one night or one month, it will surely captivate its guests and make it an experience to remember.
We believe,” Rimpley says, “that we are here to give our clients experiences, moments, and treasures that will change their lives for the better and last forever.
Whittecar and Rimpley opened their gallery doors for events in 2013. Since then, they have hosted an array of celebrations ranging from weddings to Mitzvahs to awards galas, proving that their space could be transformed into pretty much anything the client desires. Besides their growing roster of private events, the gallery has also been the venue of choice for several charity organizations including The United Way and The American Red Cross. Most recently the venue joined the fight against breast cancer by partnering with Glam-a-Thon for their annual Lipstick Lounge fundraiser. Other community partners who have made the Gallery of Amazing Things their event destination include ReJEWvenation, International Society of Event Planners, Meeting Planners International, The Aventura Marketing Council, and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. Regardless of the theme, ambition or vision, the Gallery of Amazing Things is a fitting venue to make it happen.
Since it is a haven for fine art and creativity, clients are encouraged to use the venue space as a blank canvas. Throughout the event planning process, clients can choose to move walls, redirect the flow of the space and select from a massive inventory of fine, rare and exquisite decorations. It’s that hard-to-find combination of a distinctive venue, an exemplary creative team, exceptional catering partners and breathtaking décor that make the Gallery of Amazing Things an exceptional venue.
Moreover, as trends and styles evolve, this venue and the creative team that supports it can adapt to stay fresh and of-the-moment, striving to deliver a perfectly-suited package by getting to know their clients, understanding what is most meaningful to them, and incorporating ideas and details that will reflect their personality, taste and unique flair. Whatever the event, the Gallery of Amazing Things staff will ensure that every detail is presented to seek perfection.
When asked for advice at the beginning of the event-planning process, Whittecar and Rimpley suggest that the client take this as an opportunity to show their passion for the project or the love for the person they are celebrating. The gallery team supports that passion with superior customer value and accommodating collaboration with their clients, all to the end of creating events that bring to life their clients’ commitment to a cause, their love for their child or their desire to thrill their guests. “We believe,” Rimpley says, “that we are here to give our clients experiences, moments, and treasures that will change their lives for the better and last forever”.
