Welcome NYC Event Professionals!

This is an group geared towards event/meeting professionals and suppliers in the wide world of event planning... private, public, corporate, non-profit, college/university, you name it!

I have adopted the name 'SKETCH' as it pertains to our planning prerogative... to map out, to outline, to draft... Hence going forward you will simply say that you're "here for the SKETCH event" :)

We are a resource, a place to network with others, to gain information and keep up on the latest trends in the business. NYC Event Professionals will be your "One-Stop-Shop" for everything you need to create that "one-of-a-kind" event.

At least once a month we will meet to network with one another and hear from professionals in the industry who have succeeded in creating thriving businesses. Continued learning is essential in our business, so whether you are an independent planner, a veteran of the industry or a meeting aficionado there is always something to learn and always something to share. We have a loose mentorship program that pairs seasoned pros with those just starting out.

We invite all event and meeting planners, whether for profit or non-profit, caterers, florists, photographers, venue managers, designers, cake decorators, graphic designers and more to join us at our events!

See you soon!
