CONFERENCES & EVENTS. FROM START TO FINISH.

Minneapolis to New York to London. Annual Conferences to Investor Summits to Tradeshows.

From concept to conference day, from content development to managing detailed logistics – we reflect the standards that are important to your organization.

We have helped build many new events from the ground up as well as assist in re-vamping existing events to bring them to the next level. Does your annual conference need an overhaul to go from good to great? Could some cutting-edge technology or a cool app add a new dimension to your event? Are you ready to change the status quo and try something new? We can manage the entire event or lead your internal team through a successful event for your key stakeholders.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sara on two events. The most recent was the Modus Summit, which is essentially our customer conference. Sara is what you need in an event planner. She thinks all of the details you don’t, she adds some cool flavor to give your event some personality, and she’s charming and cool under pressure. I felt awkward taking compliments for our event knowing she was who should be getting the credit. I’d recommend her 100%.

Sara is an exceptional planner whose attention to detail is second to none. One of the most enduring features of her work is her ability to remain steady and calm when changes and last minute logistical changes occur. Her communication skills from start to finish on a project or event make our life as a partner or vendor less stressful and very much more productive.
