The 2023 Vertech Christmas party was a night of celebration that still lingers in our memories, even though the holidays have come and gone. Each year, Vertech gathers our team members from across the country to celebrate one another and our collective accomplishments as a company. It's an event everyone enjoys and looks forward to all year.
We held the party at the luxurious Havana-themed Scott Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. The resort was the perfect venue, with its lavish amenities, elegant atmosphere, and gracious hospitality that made everyone feel pampered. The event space was beautifully decorated for the holidays, adding to the festive atmosphere. The assortment of elegant spaces within the resort provided different settings for our guests to connect and enjoy themselves throughout the evening - from cocktail hour on the patio to the awards ceremony in the dining room to partying on the dance floor.
The food, beverages, and service at the party were impeccable. We kicked-off the event with an open bar, serving classic and creative drinks crafted by expert bartenders. Appetizers circulated among guests as they mixed and mingled. Dinner and dessert were a feast for both the palate and the eyes.
One of the highlights of the evening was the awards ceremony. Over 20 of our talented employees received recognition for their contributions throughout the year, and it was amazing to see the looks of pride and joy on their faces. We truly value each of our employees and all they bring to the team - they are the heart and soul of Vertech!

The Christmas party was also a chance for our team to simply hang out and have fun together. Once the night's formalities ended, the dance floor and patio quickly filled up. Those who had only met virtually were able to connect in-person and strengthen relationships through shared stories and laughter. The barriers of distance and job titles melted away as we forged new friendships and made unforgettable memories.
The 2023 Vertech Christmas Party was a great way for our company to celebrate our collective accomplishments and just have a good time together. The elegant Scott Resort & Spa, with their fabulous food, drinks, and service, was the perfect backdrop for a spectacular night. But the real stars of the evening were our amazing employees. This annual event is just one way Vertech acknowledges and celebrates our team.
Thank you to everyone who attended and all those who worked behind the scenes to make the evening such a success!
