EVENT: Industry Leaders Gather at Master Plan Communications' New Headquarters

Master Plan Communications threw an Open House Party at its new offices in Rancho Santa Margarita last Thursday, and more than 150 people came out to celebrate and hear a live set by The Futures League.  Those in attendance included many action sports brand leaders, media, skateboarders, snowboarders, surfers, business people, musicians, friends and party crashers.

The Futures League was the first band to play at the Master Plan Communications’ offices!

Prior to breaking in the new Master Plan Communications’ conference room, Los Angeles rock and roll band The Futures League has played at many popular L.A. Venues, including The Troubadour and The Echoplex, as well as music festivals like SXSW in Austin, Texas and Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee.  

“It was hard to believe that so many people made it a priority to come celebrate Master Plan Communications’ continued growth with us,” said Ashton Maxfield, founder and managing director of Master Plan Communications.  “I want to sincerely thank everyone that has believed in Master Plan Communicationsover the last three and a half years.  This is only the beginning.  The agency looks forward to providing strong results through strategic PR programs for many more years!”

ThirtyTwo was Master Plan Communications’ first client back in December 2011 and the brand was well represented at the Open House.  Right to left: Brian Cook, global brand director for ThirtyTwo, Ryan Bachman, sales manager for ThirtyTwo and friend of the brand Michael Paquette.
