    • Stress Free

      We’re more calming than a martini, but with fewer calories. We know there’s a lot riding on this event. We’ve been called decisive, organized and fun. Maybe it’s because we’ve made creating your event nearly as exciting as the big day itself.

    • One-Stop Shop

      From videographers to caterers, every detail is taken care of. For more than a decade, Kennedy Events has supplied and managed a trusted stable of professionals. We’ll solve problems you didn’t even know you had.

    • Strategic

      Why are you hosting this event, anyway? Before the first invite goes out, we’ll have you do some serious navel-gazing. By asking the right questions early on, we help you create an event that meets your organization’s needs and goals.

    • Engaged Attendees

      A Half Moon Bay festival for kids better have pony rides.  A Manhattan black tie reception really shouldn’t. We customize each event to engage, delight and inform your audience. Even during mandatory educational conferences, you won’t have to worry about anyone skipping out early. They’ll be having too much fun.

    • Flexible

      What’s your favorite part of your corporate event? Do you love coming up with the décor and theme, but hate dealing with the red tape of registration? Our à la carte event planning services let you hand us the things you don’t like to do and keep the fun bits for yourself.

    • We created Pop-Up Magazine for a cozy neighborhood venue, but it got popular in a hurry, and suddenly we found ourselves at the symphony hall. We’re a small team of writers, editors, and designers. Organizing a performance and party for 2500 people, we realized we needed an event pro. Once we began working with Paige, it became impossible to imagine working without her. She got our show—and our culture—right away. She asked really perceptive questions, and drew up smart plans. I was struck by her knack for anticipating problems, and keeping track of a million tiny details, and never letting anything drop. Then the night of the event, she seems to be everywhere at once. And she makes it seem effortless. I can be a reluctant delegator, but if Paige is in charge of something, it doesn’t even occur to me to worry about it. She’s on it, that’s all I need to know. And that is a gift.

    • I’ve learned so much from Kennedy Events. They have creative ideas on how to get things done, and were behind everything that made our event a success.

    • Ari Derfel

      Producing our thousand-person conference was a high stress, no-room-for-error situation and the Kennedy Events team nailed it. Without question this was the best event team I’ve ever worked with.

    • JDR

      Kennedy Events is much more than your average event planner. They are so much to us — the anchor, captain, driver, chief, CEO, CFO, cheerleader, therapist…Yoda. They have driven us to success over 5 years of Youth Resource Fairs.
