Events Beyond means taking my clients beyond the typical event and/or business experience. With over 15 years of industry expertise, I have worked closely with some of New York City’s most demanding clients, designing, planning and executing various weddings, social occasions, special events, and corporate events. Paired with this, I also provide creative consulting services, advising established companies and new businesses on strategy, branding, design, social media, product launches, boutique openings and events marketing.
From personal milestones, intimate gatherings and corporate events and conferences to lavish baby showers, modern-chic weddings and galas and fundraisers, I am dedicated to finding new ways to go beyond client expectations. Whatever the reason for the event, my mission is to make your guests – family, friends and industry associates – feel BEYOND welcomed and wowed.
With my keen eye for detail, rest assured, no aspect of your event will be overlooked. I find that it’s the “little things” that create lasting impressions and what guests appreciate most long after the event is over. It’s my towering dessert bars, sweets and treats tables and candy bars or the welcome and swags bags and party favors that guests know and love. And it’s these “sweet” additions that will get your guests talking.
Events Beyond is best known for bringing these unique and thoughtful elements and taking you BEYOND the typical event experience.
