Melissa Forziat Events and Marketing is an internationally-experienced small business and nonprofit event manager, working with you to deliver smooth events on budget that meet your goals and make your donors, sponsors, and attendees happy.

A great event does not come together in a day.  It takes months, sometimes years of planning.  You start with the big details and suddenly you escalate to little details and deadlines coming from every direction!  Our objective is to work with you to solidify your ideas into a cohesive event plan.  Then we work with you to implement your event so you can rest easy that your event is on track.  And when you need to be on the ground to network on the day-of, we are behind the scenes making sure everything is being managed for you.

Every business has different event management needs and budget.  If you are looking for an event manager, see below for a list of services that could be relevant for your event.
