- Venue sourcing - Third party supplier sourcing (photographer, videographer, hosts) - Production build (a pop-up salon was built in the spa of the hotel venue) - Catering and evening event production - Entertainment sourcing - Transport coordination
In addition, I was very grateful for Reda Akaaboune’s personal attention and counsel on the ground. His approach to problem solving was exceptional, when a confirmed venue unfortunately experienced a fire days before our event, Reda was able to source an alternative venue at no extra cost to us.
