With the recent shake up of the event industry, there has never been a better time to reimagine corporate experiences - from mundane to marvelous! As more and more people continue to work from home, corporate events need to work double-time.

47 Rental Clients. 11 Event Productions. 15 Days. 1 Epic Festival.

And we crushed it!

After two years apart with no live events, SXSW came back swinging in 2022. The largest festival in the world of its kind, SXSW is a conference that brings together the brightest creative minds in education, film, music, and technology with an array of panels, showcases, keynotes, and opportunities for connection.

For 15 days we were all over town producing events for SXSW EDU and SXSW Film, reimagining a new event for Austin Film Society with the Toast to Texas Film, and staging furniture for numerous keynotes, parties, and brand activations. Austin came alive with the energy SXSW brings to the city each year, reminding us of the magic of live events. We are here for it.

Check out some of our highlights below!

It’s always a good time with Texas Film Awards. We produced this special evening at Troublemaker Studios from ideation, implementation, programming and decor with our friends at the Austin Film Society.

The events industry has seen a lot of change in the past couple of years due to the pandemic. We’re weary of it. We’re ready to dive head first into PARTIES! These past long and isolated months have taught us to be prepared for anything. We’ve been tracking and implementing the changes in trends, and have found some that we would like to keep around coming into 2022.


It’s finally HERE! This year we have picked some of our favorite things for the ultimate Christmas Guide for 2021. There's something here for everyone on your list!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Austin City Limits Music Festival is finally here! Our own Autumn Rich and Lisa Hickey helped kick off the legendary music festival 20 years ago and they’ve come full circle! ACL is definitely not the same as it was in 2002, but there are so many fun changes in the works for this year’s fest despite the ongoing pandemic. To keep us all safe, ACL is requiring a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the festival, or proof of full vaccination. Panacea Collective is outfitting the VIP Grove, Media Lounge, Tito's Lounge, the vrbo Lounge, headliner compounds for acts like Miley Cyrus and George Strait, and more! Come check out our designs and see you at the Park!

In the 18th and 19th centuries, picnics were elaborate social events with complex meals and fancy drinks that sometimes took days to prepare. Picture lords and ladies gathered around sharing stories and watching a variety of entertainment. Though modern picnics are obviously a bit different than this, picnics remain popular — food just tastes better when enjoyed outdoors in a beautiful setting with friends! We love this timeless tradition, and we want to continue to bring small groups together for light bites and fun — what better way than with your very own pop-up picnic from Austin’s very own Panacea Collective?

Brand Activation: Dad 2.0, Mom 2.0

One of our favorite things about event production and design is seeing a space completely transformed. We had the pleasure of working with our new partner for two Best Buy event activations this Spring, Dad 2.0 Summit in San Antonio, TX and Mom 2.0 Summit in Austin, TX.

With Dad 2.0, we started with an empty hotel ballroom and finished with a fully functional man cave. At Mom 2.0 we began with a hotel meeting room that turned into a dream kitchen and lounge. Read on to see how we helped to bring this client’s vision to life.


The first Monday in May is "fashion's biggest night out". We couldn't help but see the resemblance in these iconic looks from last night's Met Gala and some of our favorite pieces. The theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion”, which brought out everyone's inner Queen. We love pulling from art, fashion, architecture, and history to keep our event designs creative and unique. We can't wait to show you some of our new pieces!

 LBJ Presidential Library Summit on Race in America

Event Producers have the luxury of working with many different clients. That’s what makes our jobs so exciting and ever-changing. Every so often an event comes along that you know is going to be meaningful and impact many lives. Such was the LBJ Presidential Library’s Summit on Race in America.

From April 8-10, 2019, we were honored to collaborate with the LBJ Foundation on this Summit. We gathered over 50 speakers to explore the racial divide and inequality we continue to face in our country. Over three days, the LBJ Presidential Library Summit on Race in America included conversations from many participants that included Andrew Young, former UN Ambassador and civil rights legend; Vernon Jordan, Civil Rights Activist and Senior Managing Director of Lazard Frères & Co.; Dolores Huerta, founder and president, Dolores Huerta Foundation and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom; Valerie Jarrett, the longest-serving advisor to President Obama and author of Finding My Voice;...

SXSW Event Company

Wow, just wow Austin. For SXSW we completed 36 events in 15 days. We had 5 trucks running and averaged 17 hour days!

Before the trucks loaded up and hit the streets, our team spent hundreds of hours designing everything from venue transformations to themed lounges. A Panacea specialty service that goes beyond just furniture rentals, we love to collaborate with our clients to bring their grandest visions to life. Custom printing, vinyl wall wraps, floral photo walls, custom art installations - you name it, we deliver what it takes to take your event to the next level.

We were so excited with our new partnerships and prior clients, and proud to see our many activations come to life.

Here is a peak into some highlights from SXSW 2019!


The 61st annual GRAMMY Awards will air this Sunday, February 10th and it has us reminiscing at all of the great artists we have had the honor of working with the past few years. Music is an important part of our lives and is a beautiful way to bring people together, find love, or even let out tears of emotion. If you haven’t noticed, most of our favorite pieces are even named after some of music’s greats!

In the tradition of the new year, we are letting go of some of our beloved inventory to make room for something new. We really love these pieces, but are excited for them to find a new home.

Most of these pieces are one of a kind and, boy, if they could talk, they have seen many great parties and VIP guests. We hope if you see something you enjoy and would fit your space, that you will fill out the form here, and note the piece of interest. Our team will reach out and coordinate pick up and delivery to make the transition stress free.

Given the opportunity to design and decorate a majority of the VIP areas, cocktail lounges, and artist compounds at one of the largest festivals in the nation... can seem like an impossible feat for one team.

With the Panacea Collective mantra to say "yes" to any ask, we've been able to partner with C3 Presents's Lollapalooza for 4 years in a row now, only pushing our limits of how many spaces we take on and the quantity and quality of furniture we drive out. From concept and design to installation and execution, our event stylists partner hand in hand with each of our clients to make their spaces come to life.

Whether you're planning a wedding, a large corporate event, or a formal business gathering, the furniture and event space play a key role in your event's success. It's not just about making room for all of your guests, and giving them a place to sit - rather, furniture rentals can intelligently define your event space, and accommodate attendees desire to mingle, network, and interact. If you’re working with a large event venue, the space might feel too distant and spread out, which hinders the mood that you've been struggling to evoke.

Could event furniture rentals hold the key? Read on to learn more about event furniture rentals, styling, and how they play an important role in event planning.

Happy New Year, friends! One of our favorite things about wrapping up 2017 was slowing down, taking time to appreciate family and friends, and enjoying life.

With big dreams and a lot we want to accomplish in 2018, the overarching questions we often ask are: How can we contribute and how can we make a difference in our community?

For months, we've been adding amazing pieces to our inventory and designing amazing events for old friends and new! Being longtime Austinites and lovers of all things Austin, we thought, what better way to pay homage to Austin than to share our new pieces in front of Austin's best murals on a random day of the week? So we took to the streets and partnered with Autumn Rich & Co., Gypsy Floral, The Southern Influence, Keith Kreeger and The Southern Loom to create an elaborate photoshoot throughout the city. We got a few curious looks to say the least!

For the kick-off of festival season this year, we didn't feel like sweating in large crowds of people at a desert music festival, so we got our festival fix with Nochella, a Palm Springs-festival inspired party. It felt so good to celebrate in a more intimate style, hanging poolside, without the long lines for the bar, and with many of our favorite fest friends.

All decor and styling was provided by Panacea (of course!). From the unforgettable gold lettered balloons spelling Nochella over the pool to the relaxed, festival-style furniture stationed throughout the yard, it was a completely dreamy afternoon.
