What our customers are saying:

I’ve had some time to reflect on this year’s AFPM event, and I wanted to pass on to you my heartfelt thanks for all the work you did. We always get positive comments from our customers, but we’ve had even more than usual this year. I know we’ve been doing this a long time with you and I have to say that I think this might have been your best one yet. You really outdid yourself. The venue, the decorations, the music, the gift – everything was first class.

I’ve told you before, but I want to say again how happy we are with the service you give us for this event. You “get it” as far as what we want to accomplish and you nail it every time. I hope you realize how gifted you are at this type of thing. I don’t think there are many people out there who could do what you do.

I’m already looking forward to next year. We definitely want to contract with you again if you’re available. Please let me know when you think it’s time to start the venue search. (It’s going to be tough to top the 2016 event!)

Anyway, I just wanted to pass on my congratulations and sincere thanks for another great event. It’s obviously not cheap to do this every year, but the message it communicates to our customers, and the impression it gives people of Magellan is worth every penny.

Stan Rogers,
Vice President of Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P.

Planning a major sporting event or corporate function is exciting, but let's face it – it can also be scary. You want your guests (and your boss!) to feel welcome, comfortable, and impressed, but there are so many details to keep track of and things to plan. How will you pull this off?

That's where Events by Lisa comes in. We take the pain out of event planning by taking care of all the “behind the scenes” needs so that you can relax – and then take the credit when your meeting or event is completed seamlessly and within your budget.

We can help you with all of the following:



Preparing a budget is one of the biggest and most important aspects of event planning. A well-developed financial plan is a tool that will help guide you throughout your event. The last thing you need is to be surprised by unexpected bills after your event is over!


Events by Lisa, LLC, will help you prepare a budget for your special event by researching costs, identifying options and making choices that fit your financial plan and priorities. Having an event budget in place before any contracts are signed provides control and accountability of all revenues and expenses.


Once a budget is established, Events by Lisa will act as a liaison during contract negotiations with vendors so you get the best prices on services. All discussions will be in writing so there are no misunderstandings. All services will be secured and agreed upon based on your budget.
