Are you tired of going to the same old networking events? Mingle. A cocktail. Repeat. - Us too. That is why we created the Emerge Event Collective.

We know that networking seems daunting. You are a busy and successful event pro who wants to be challenged with in depth education and conversations, innovative networking events, and more than the everyday meetups. One that helps you raise the bar not only in our industry, but in your business.

We've combined innovative and inspiring networking events, industry leading education and speakers, industry leading designers for our events, and online advertising to create a new kind of event collective. One that feels like family. Where we spend time getting to know one another on a personal level doing interactive activities that allow you to experience things as humans.

We believe that authentic personal relationships lead to authentic business relationships.

"Being part of Emerge is like having a family of professional supporters all around you! I have throughly enjoyed making the connections I have and working on opportunities I would have otherwise not been privy to! As an entrepreneur, it is nice being able to surround yourself with people who care about their professions and the work they put out there. Proud to be a part of such a great group!"

~Cristy Fernandez, Lucky Onion

"This amazing group graciously gave me a warm welcome when I decided to join their family! Over the last year, they continuously treats me like family, as if their own. They care. They support. They love. They are a great community to be a part of and I am so glad I am part of theirs and can be family to others as well. They have taught me so much as a person and as a business owner, but the support I receive from them surpasses all. They value community over competition and serve others with love, kindness and respect. I love this family!" 

~Rachel Schrepel, Rachel Schrepel Wedding Photographer

"We are coming up on our one year anniversary and I know it has been one of the best investments I've made for my business. The vendor relationships we've grown over the last year are worth their weight in gold! We love being able to warm-refer clients to people we know personally, who operate at the same standards that we do, and provide top-notch services. It truly is a family environment for the crazy chaotic industry we work in which provides a safe place to grow personally and professionally."

~Aimee Palifroni, Prisma Events
