Mandy Bianchi: Bianchi Productions

In five years, I’d like Bianchi Productions to be recognized as one of the go-to event deign and activation agencies for clients in the entertainment, marketing and high-end social worlds.


Alejandro Davila: BAVARU Events and Catering

I emigrated to Canada 8 years ago from Ecuador and previously lived in Argentina. My inspiration is to be able to share and create new experiences for other people through food and events.


Scott Foertch: Ovation Events

I can say that my “why” of bringing creativity and fun continues to morph as the business grows. Our first major purchase was investing in a mobile culinary kitchen so we could add culinary aspects into our design! “


Adriana Luevano: Floral Wild LLC

It may sound crazy but I love planning and executing the event and the obstacles at the end of it all. I get the big satisfaction of those are my designs and the client doesn’t know I stayed up all night working on this!”
