Big goals. Start-up mentality.
Starting up a business, or an event, from scratch, there are a lot of unknowns. Building something sustainable from the ground up? That’s where Garibaldi Events really steps into our strength.
Our secret? Keep it simple.
Living through the philosophy that simplicity equals success, we’ve created an approach to designing, planning, and implementing events that offers an experience as out of the ordinary as every event we support.
Yet simplicity and sustainability doesn’t mean ordinary. Or boring.
It means using what we’ve got, adding in details that make a difference, and letting the uniqueness of your business or brand do the talking.
By bringing extra focus to areas most event management companies miss (pre- and post-promotion, amplifying the business personality, and building sustainable communities and revenue systems), we help clients see the power of events in telling their story, and building their brand in a whole new, highly engaging way.
While there’s a lot about events that’s unpredictable, here’s one thing we know for sure:
We do what works, so your event works for you.
