20 years in the event industry, including on retainer to a wedding celebrity brand name, travels, speaking engagements and specializing in Santa Barbara events, I created an opportunity for an industry to come together to "Define. Design. Evolve." Presenting the latest research nationally and then focusing locally, I built an educational experience that allowed event & hospitality professionals to come together and relax, understand what was going on, collaborate, network, be entertained and build community. The results exceeded what I'd ever expected. You can read about the 2018 Summit here. 2019 is currently being imagined and taken to a whole new level.
