    • 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.

      When our show got popular in a hurry, growing from a cozy neighborhood venue to a symphony hall, we realized we needed an event pro. Once we began working with Kennedy Events, it became impossible to imagine working without them. Now the show has expanded to Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and beyond.

      The Kennedy Events team asks perceptive questions, draws up smart plans, has a knack for anticipating problems, and keeps track of a million tiny details, never letting anything drop.

      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.
