Who We Are
Think of us as your
behind-the-scenes dream team.
Settings change, technologies evolve, and zeitgeists shift, but If there’s an experience to be imagined, shaped, and realized, OneWest is there. Through partnership and collaboration and with community always at the heart, we design and produce innovative in-person, hybrid, and virtual events and experiences.
We’ve collaborated with many of Canada’s flagship corporations, impactful non-profit organizations, and world-renowned shows, building a reputation as both creative risk takers and safety and production aces. For over a decade and on thousands of projects across Canada, OneWest has used design to transform spaces into something entirely new, concepts to transport guests somewhere they never imagined and will never forget, and foresight and planning to pull it all off behind the scenes.
From the grand concept to the smallest detail, we put our heads and our hearts into realizing your vision, driven by our belief in the importance of community, connections, and bringing people together. We value the process as much as the end result. Our ultimate satisfaction in a job well-done comes from true collaboration, stress-free execution, and the lasting impact of the final result.
What We Do
We listen, collaborate, and imagine.
Then we hustle, create, and execute.
Beginning, middle, and end, your goals are our goals. Your input is key throughout our process, and the first step is always a conversation. Along with your ideas and vision, we’ll talk about your brand, objectives, and practical considerations, then we’ll design, plan, and execute a solution that will work within any limitations, while exceeding your expectations.
Whether we’re custom-building an environment or pulling from our extensive exclusive rental collection, we’ll hand-pick exactly what your experience needs. Our friends are your friends, and our positive, long-term relationships with the very best vendors, suppliers, and contractors allow us to build the perfect team. Together, we’ll sculpt and shape your event, and in the end deliver the very best experience for you and your guests.
Each step along the way, we focus our boundless energy, professionalism, and creativity on your event, ensuring that every t is crossed, every i is dotted, and the ultimate vision is realized.
We’re proud to work behind-the-scenes to shine the spotlight exactly where it should be – on you.
How We Do It
We create the best results by
starting with the best people.
Across our diverse educational backgrounds and professional skill sets, each member of our team approaches your project with a positive, creative mindset that is backed by experience and training. We truly believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and that means that each of our skills, talents, and abilities is made stronger when we collaborate – not just with each other, but with our clients and partners as well. We are many, but together, we’re one.
