My name is Meaghan Jameson and I am the Event Manager for
Events North…and the newest addition to the staff! I just moved to Traverse City,
Michigan from Tampa, Florida in January to pursue my dream career, which is
exactly what I am getting the opportunity to do here at Events North. I enjoy
all things wedding, long-distance running, drinking copious amounts of coffee,
and The Beatles.I also love social media, event coordination,
and Traverse City…which is where I am now lucky enough to call home!
the first hypothetical question I proposed: What/who
is ‘Events North?’
Excellent question. Events North is a full service event
management agency located in Traverse City, Michigan that specializes in corporate
and social events. Allison Beers, owner and founder (and also my wonderful
boss), has over 15 years of experience in event management and prides herself
in working hard to save clients money while still making every detail of their event
extra special. Events North is happy to help you with as many or as few aspects
of the planning process you require- we cater to your needs exactly. We will
host the event of your dreams, exceed your expectations and WOW your guests by
creating an experience that will never be forgotten!
And who are we? Well, you’ve already been introduced to me, but the
rest of the Events North family is made up of Allison Beers, owner and founder,
and our summer event coordinator, Macaila. I’ll allow them to introduce
While living on the East Coast, Allison planned and executed a
40,000 guest carnival fundraiser for the opening of the Philadelphia Eagles new
stadium, and also planned a two-week
regional road show for America Online.
In 2010, Beers was named the Top 10 in '10 from Albion College.
Top 10 in 10 awards were created to recognize noteworthy and distinctive
achievements made by ten alumni who have graduated within the past ten years.
Allison is also a freelance writer for Michigan Meetings +
Events Magazine and serves on their editorial advisory board.
Allison, originally from the Detroit area, moved to Traverse
City 7 years ago with her husband, Adam, a Traverse City native.She has two children, Anna (4) and Jake (10
(Allison also really enjoys Oldies music, watching Punky
Brewster with Anna after a long day, and indulging in some tea from MORSELS on
occasion. She verified that all of this information is accurate, except that she enjoys tea from MORSELS more than just occasionally...)
Hi! My name is Macaila Schlaff and I am the new Event
Coordinator at Events North! I am an undergraduate senior at the University of
Michigan and have been given the opportunity to intern in Traverse City for the
summer to gain experience towards my future career in social, corporate and
non-profit events. My favorite things are boating, weddings, watching
romantic-comedies and Michigan football! As a Michigan native from the Detroit
area I am thrilled to be living and working in Traverse City for the summer!
Question #2: Why does
an Event Management company want to start a blog?
Well, honestly…Events North has
a lot to blog about. We are located in an amazing town, get the opportunity to
work with fantastic clients, are surrounded by superb local vendors, and have
some excellent tips and tricks of the trade to share.
Which brings me to our final question: What do they feel the need to blog about?
North plans on using this blog to share highlights from past events we’ve
managed, shed light on some outstanding local vendors and venues, spread the
Traverse City happenings to our readers, give you some insight into our
Event-coordinating brains, provide wedding tips and money saving tricks…the
list goes on and on. Mainly, I just want to keep you updated and entertained
and also allow you to see how wonderful Traverse City really is (yes, even in
the winter season).
that about covers it as far as introductions go. I will be updating the blog at
least once a week and also providing consistent updates- and sometimes even
giveaways!- on our Facebook page.In the
meantime, have a wonderful week- hope it’s eventful (So punny, I know. I
