Our team

As a high risk family impacted by COVID we came up with Connection Kits as a way to infuse joy and connection into virtual events.

We bring decades of experince in event marketing, design and relationships. And we're not just some promotional products company. We're designers of branded experience, and community builders that care.

We created this because we saw a disconnect betwee event organizers, attendees and sponsors brought on by the shift to virtual events. Before too long we saw this was actually a golden opportunity to drive even more engagement than in person had previously offered.

Elevate your next event by leveraging our unique insight, built on decades of experience in event marketing, production design and nurturing relationships. Together with our clients we seeing increased conversions and enrollments. By fulfilling our shared need for connection engagements go up and fun ensues.

Connection Kits is a service of Hornsby Creative.

Testimonials

What our community is saying.

“John and Anilia were exceptionally helpful in curating Connection Kits for an event that I hosted virtually at my company. Together, we brainstormed the overall feeling we wanted recipients to have and they orchestrated the ordering, wrapping and shipping of all the materials. Highly recommend!”
