I assisted the event director with planning and executing events based on client needs. Planning included designing invitations, making table arrangement and ensuring the fine details of corporate events and weddings were exactly as the client requested. Part of my assignment was also to research other venues and events the my company could take part in and assisted in networking with others to make those connections. I was provided the opportunity to travel to various events and network with other people within the tri-state area.
