We were busy bees last week as we were preparing to throw a party (its what we do best!)
Last Thursday we hosted EEVA’s (Eastern Event Vendors Association) Launch Social. EEVA was a group that formed at the beginning of 2011. It is dedicated to promoting the event industry, enhancing the professionalism and quality of member’s businesses and providing opportunities for learning and networking within our industry.
EEVA President Andrea Knapp stated “”We are excited about the opportunity to connect with a talented and diverse group of vendors that offer quality services in our field. We all see a number of small businesses going out of business in this economy. It is so difficult to focus on what you do best and manage the business side of the equation too. We are entering this non-profit arena to work together help businesses in our industry not only survive, but thrive.””
EEVA gave away two valuable prizes. Scotty G won an EEVA membership for the rest of the year. The grand prize, a year membership, went to Veronica Law from Your Sacred Moments.
It was a great evening of networking, laughter and excitement for a new group filled with fabulous vendors. If EEVA is a group that you are interested in, find out more on their website EEVA or on FACEBOOK .
