Corporate Event Planners

Everything you need to educate your stakeholders or show appreciation to your employees, families & guests.

  • Gone are boring corporate events with attendees packed into theater-style seating staring at PowerPoint presentations.
  • Gone are “events for the sake of events” that do nothing to fuel brand awareness nor help you make meaningful connections with your target audience.
  • Gone are corporate events that people forget about as soon as they exit the venue.

It’s time to leave behind the mediocre and the status quo.

At Andrew Roby Events, we’re ready to push your corporate events forward and help you create dynamic, trendsetting experiences that forever change the way people view your company.

We’ll bring the expertise. You show up and enjoy!
As a busy professional, you’re pouring your energies into advancing your company and your career. Leave the hassle and fuss of corporate event planning to our expert team. That way, you can focus on what you do best without feeling stressed out or overburdened–or like you suddenly need to become an expert in corporate event planning! We have it covered.

What Sets Our Corporate Planners Apart

Whether you’re interested in an employee training, trade show, community event, business conference, or holiday party, here’s how Andrew Roby Events is transforming corporate event planning in DC, Dallas, Los Angeles, and beyond.

ATTENDEE REGISTRATION

Creating experiences, not just events. When people attend a corporate event as passive observers, they’re less likely to be engaged in the event and to continue engaging with your company over time. We help people immerse themselves in an experience—not simply attend an event.

Rather than listening to a lecture, they’re participating in vibrant Q&As or live polling sessions organized through our business conference planning services. Rather than making mindless small talk with one or two people at a networking event, they’re equipped with a PURL (personalized URL) that leads them to a broad group of people they can make meaningful connections with.

Even before the event, they’re welcomed into a social media group where they can meet movers and shakers in their industry and share insights on trending topics. And for virtual or hybrid events, rather than sitting at a screen watching a talking head, guests are drawn into dynamic, interactive team building activities.

If you’re promoting a charitable initiative, we ensure that attendees aren’t just hearing about it. Our corporate event planners make it hands-on so guests are watching a multi-media presentation or meeting the people it benefits or participating in service activities themselves.

We find ways to get your audience moving and engaging all of their senses, ensuring that they are “in the moment” for a truly memorable experience.

DC Corporate Event Planner

Turning attendees into brand ambassadors. Whether you are planning a community fun run or an employee Christmas party, every guest in attendance has the potential to become a powerful brand ambassador. They can be energized to spread goodwill about your company wherever they go, but ONLY if they associate the event with a great impression of your organization.

That’s why a corporate event is so much more than a single, disconnected occurrence. This event is about your corporate culture and goals so we take time to understand those before we start planning. We learn about your target audience and what resonates with them.

People want to understand the humanity behind your company–your origin story and the way you are making the world a better place. Our corporate event planners help educate people about your mission and draw them into that mission.

This can start long before the event, with social media marketing and consistent messaging through a unified handle and hashtag. This ensures that people are more engaged coming into the event and that they continue engaging–and sharing–long after your corporate event.

Innovating. The same old events won’t capture anyone’s imagination, but people will always remember when they’ve seen or experienced things for the first time. We don’t follow, we lead! With a strong reputation for trendsetting business event planning services, our team knows how to set your company apart from the rest. From the food and entertainment to the design and itinerary, we give your guests something fresh, innovative, and worth gushing about to others.

DC Corporate Event Planner

Connecting you to the best vendors. With over 10 years in corporate events planning, we are well-networked with the best-of-the-best venues and vendors in the Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Dallas areas. Our network of vendors includes caterers, audiovisual technicians, printers, decorators, photographers, security personnel, entertainers, and more.

We know which vendors have special expertise in corporate party and corporate conference planning, as well as which vendors would be the best fit for your goals and corporate culture. After all, even the biggest-name vendors may not be the appropriate choice if they don’t align with your vision or style.

We communicate with the vendors on your behalf, managing timelines and contracts so that you don’t have to get tangled in the details.

Increasing engagement with technology. The pandemic forced us all to up our tech game as we grappled with ways to connect safely. The big takeaway was that we could use tech more and better–not just for social distancing but for reaching a broader audience regardless of health conditions and for improving engagement during live events.

During the pandemic, we became trailblazers in technology, leveraging tech innovations to make every corporate event better. If you are looking to turn your live business conference or business party into a hybrid one, facilitating more guests, we can provide all of the digital expertise to make that happen.

And since the last thing you want is for your virtual guests to feel like detached observers, we’ll take care of that, too. Our corporate event planners will orchestrate production so that they feel like they are right in the middle of the action, participating along with your live guests.

Want a slicker check-in process? We’ll equip your corporate event with QR code technology for a simple and convenient check-in for your guests. How about a digital ecosystem that allows guests to meet before the event, engage during the event, and stay in touch after? We’ve got it covered.

Want digital swag instead of trinkets that end up in the trash? We can create promotional codes for online discounts, access to photos and videos from the event, and more. The technology is here. We’ll help you distinguish yourself by unleashing its full potential to upgrade your next corporate event.

Cultivating a diverse community. You devote a lot of effort to creating a diverse, respectful culture at work. Your event should be a continuation of that.

As a black-owned event planning company, we have unique insight into the importance of promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion at your event. These elements show through in the language surrounding your event, the food that is served, the entertainment and speakers you choose, the accessibility of the venue, and more.

I am the Founder and CEO of the National Events Council, the organization that increases awareness of qualified business owners in the events industry who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). As such, I dare say that few people care as much as I do about supporting your inclusion goals.

My team of corporate event planners and I will ensure that your event reflects the highest level of inclusivity so that every guest feels valued, respected, and welcomed.

Maximizing your budget. Whether you’re working with a small or large budget, you’ll want to make every penny count. We can help you prioritize your budget from the start, ensuring that you’re spending your money in ways that best align with your event goals. We can also leverage our insider industry knowledge, bulk-buying clout, and vendor connections to ensure you’re getting the best rates for products and services.

Client Testimonials

He’s connected with the BEST of the BEST in the area, all of whom are just as professional and attentive. This is the type of one stop shop that a bride should desire, because you end up with the flawless results you’ve dreamed of (and deserved) all without the stress that you hear other brides complain about…don’t be one of them. This will be your best investment.
I have never hired and event planner for previous parties. With this being a milestone birthday for my mother, I wanted to make it extra special. Andrew made the entire process so easy! He has the connections in the DC area to recommend the best caterers, entertainers, and bakeries to make sure that your guests will have a great time. He uses technology to make communication, contracts, payment, and planning very easy. On the day of the party, he did not interrupt our visiting with guests with any issues. He only checked in to make sure we were having a good time! We will definitely be asking him to help us with any future events, and we have been recommending his services to anyone that asks. Thank you, Andrew for all of your work and for making a memorable evening for our family and friends!
Once again Andrew knocked it out of the park. For someone like me who is a bit of a control freak to turn such an important premier event over to someone else is saying something. This is the third event we have done with Andrew and his team and it will not be the last. Quality, attention to detail, sense of humor and dedication are just a few ways to describe Andrew Roby Events. THANK YOU Andrew – you made a it wonderful again and I am grateful to you and your team for removing the stress and making it all beautiful!
Andrew is one of the best Event Planners I’ve worked with. He is responsive, creative and professional. Anyone would be thrilled to work with him on their next event!
Andrew and his team planned my wedding for 100 people in about four months. He left no stone unturned, tried to keep me on task and organized, and assisted with choosing vendors and getting contracts in place. He listened to what I wanted in terms of decor and made great suggestions and created a stunning setting for the ceremony and a gorgeous reception. He was available to handle even the smallest detail. Most importantly, on the day, I was able to relax while he coordinated with the venue, the various vendors, and my wedding party to make sure that things ran smoothly (and that I never found out if things were NOT running smoothly) and according to schedule. I highly recommend him and his team!
This guy saved my life and made my party such a pleasure to plan and allowed me to enjoy it so much better than if I had done this myself. He was prompt, thorough, efficient, and super responsive. He watched my budget and was a pleasure to work with. He really was attentive during the party and thought of everything. I would not hesitate to use him again and I highly recommend him.
Andrew and his staff helped us plan a wedding while my husband was stationed overseas. I’ve never been the kind of girl who “dreamed about her wedding,” and working a high-stress job didn’t leave me a ton of time to sweat the details. Andrew helped us pick a venue, negotiate with vendors, and stage decor, amongst other tasks, and we ended up with an event that looked like it was ripped from the pages of a bridal magazine. Couldn’t have asked for a better result. Extremely reasonable prices to boot!
If you are looking for a wedding planner who will not only listen to your requests but take them above and beyond this is the person for you! Andrew and his team will work with you and any obstacles that arise. He takes your ideas and will give you exactly what you want. If there is something you aren’t fond of, it will be changed. I can express the gratitude I had for Andrew and all his dedication he gave to my husband and I for our 10 year anniversary!!! I highly, highly recommend Andrew and Andrew Roby Events for any needs you may have. If you want everyone talking about your event afterwards there is no better company!!
My organization worked with Andrew for a large corporate event that runs exactly like a wedding (cocktails, dinner, dancing, late-night snack and brunch the next day). Specifically we needed help with creating a look and vision for the event that fit within our small budget. Andrew worked with us and found creative ways to create a beautiful event within our budget. He also took care of all day-of setup which provided a big stress relief leading up to the event. I’d recommend Andrew for any type of event and budget.
Dear Andrew & team! I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work in planning my big 40th birthday bash! From start to finish, you provided excellent service and the utmost professionalism. The venue you recommended was so perfect and your guidance helped me tremendously in staying on budget. Thank you also for bringing such fresh ideas to make my party one to remember. It was one EPIC 80s/90s themed party! God bless you and your flourishing business. You are amazing at what you do! You’ll be hearing from me again for my next big event! XOXO
