About me
With more than 15 years’ experience in events in Spain and Europe, I started out with the basics, learning about every aspect of event planning, gradually working towards leadership roles. I now organise and manage corporate and creative events with hundreds of attendees. I oversee all areas of the event planning and creative production, which ensures that fewer mistakes are made and every decision carried out compiles with a comprehensive overview. So what does “A tu Vera” mean? This popular phrase in Spanish means “By Your Side”. This is how we roll. We’re by your side throughout the entire process. We guide and lead your company, searching for outstanding solutions, crafting creative events to suit your needs.
