I attended the Northwest Events Show last year for the first time. I was impressed! The booth areas were full, and the booths themselves were expertly decorated and fun to peruse. The caterers who provided samples of their wares was over the top!!! I hired one of the exhibitors I met there (Nutty Squirrel Gelato) and they were FABULOUS to work with!! I highly recommend this event to any and all event planners who want to learn more about the various venues, caterers, and plethora of event support vendors in our area. It’s soooo worth it, and you’ll have tons of fun!

I decided I needed fresh ideas and new events/caterers, restaurants, fun things, locations, etc. So I hopped on the bus. This was, hands down, the BEST decision I made this week.
