Introduction: Take the guesswork out of hosting an event. The Blackbird nonprofit and corporate events team works hand-in-hand with clients to conceptualize and customize a living experience. Each event tells a story through a variety of touchpoints and details designed to engage the senses from the venue to curated entertainment, venue, and culinary selections. With an extraordinary eye for detail, Blackbird works closely with clients to make sure your corporate or nonprofit event is a smashing success from conception to wrap up. Our pulse on the competition, market trends, logistical production, timing, and budgeting, and a deep understanding of guest experience will catapult your event to be one for the ages.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We charge for three tiers of service: consultation (to get you on the right path to DIY), day-of service (which includes on-site coordination and meetings before the event), and full-service which is all-inclusive management and coordination, the most hands-off option for you. No two events are the same, however, with a one hour consultation, we will sit down with you and talk to you about your goals. From there, we will make recommendations and point you in the right direction to either hire staff, re-allocate staff, or do it yourself. For a little extra, we can create a custom task list and budget for your event. On-site day-of large event coordination starts at $1,200 for the day. We arrive two hours early and stay until two hours after the event ends. Usually, business events last around three hours and longer galas last around five hours. When considering the cost of hiring a planner to management your event, you have to take into account the time it will take you to coordinate and plan, how that drags you away from your normal work duties, takes you out of your expertise which causes even more stress and dissatisfaction, and then you have to factor in your lost productivity. Suddenly, hiring a professional isn’t too expensive after all… and the results are much better.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We have a qualified event designer and day-of-event staff to help you with your events! Depending on the availability and the needs of your event, you will be paired with the corresponding event planner. Everyone at Blackbird has over ten years’ experience working on events of all sizes and copes and are wonderful to work with. We are all obsessed with customer service and making sure your guests and team feel like they are treated like gold.
- What types of customers have you worked with?We work with nonprofit and corporate clients on a wide range of events that tend to be mission-focused or related to philanthropy or volunteerism. These types of events have included: Corporate Events Fundraisers Cocktail Parties Golf Outings Private Events Open Houses Launches Grand Openings Receptions Staff Outings Holiday Parties Entertainment Social Events Appreciation Dinners
