Our Approach

We’re all about big dreams, big goals, and big paper! Our 4-phase event planning approach is an effective way to produce an experience that captivates your guests while inviting them to become part of your story.

Cue the Confetti! Virtual Non-Profit Events

At Palmer Event Solutions, our mission is to help good people plan great events. While the personal connections that can result from live events carry tremendous value, there are times when going virtual (or planning a hybrid of the two) is necessary for your program. When done well, virtual non-profit events have great potential for engaging broader audiences across the region — and around the globe.

Learn how we’ve helped non-profit organizations rethink and successfully develop engaging, mission-advancing events.

One of the Best Events I've Attended – Virtually or Otherwise

It was one of the best events I've attended, virtually or otherwise. I felt more engaged in this event than others that were in person! Thank you for creating such an incredible experience. It was professional without being artificial. The staff encouraging the chat function was lovely. It was truly the best Zoom event I've attended. You masterfully created a welcoming environment and I'm incredibly impressed. The positive impression left on me of your employees, donors, and clients will remain with me for a long time. Congratulations!!

HUGE thank you to PES for taking over all logistics for this event. Every gala should have a PES Team managing logistics. The strategy of letting our awesome partners do what they do best has paid off. Your recommendations have been invaluable. Katie has kept us informed and is extremely knowledgeable.

Thank you for your help over the course of the past couple months in the planning, and execution of the American Heart Association’s Heart & Stroke Ball. It was great to work with you in partnership with them. Your attention to detail and event production knowledge truly showed in the planning process, as well as the event itself. You all were great to work with, and we hope to see you back in the future!

Liz Naylor, Huntington Convention Center of ClevelandAHA Heart & Stroke Ball 2016

Thank you so much for running such a fantastic festival in Cleveland. Our whole team really had a wonderful experience. I was so proud to share "A Kingdom, A Chasm" in Public Square, and be a part of the audience that gathered there. Many thanks to you and the whole BorderLight crew for all your work, for creating such an incredible festival, and for including us this year. It was really an honor and a delight to work with you all.

Jenny Sargent, "A Kingdom, A Chasm"Borderlight 2019 (artist)

Gail is a star and will make the most out of your event. She manages volunteers wonderfully and will tackle any issues that may arise during your event like a true pro. From technical issues to aesthetic adjustments, Gail jumps in and gets things on track. Plus, she is a blast to hang out with and gets it done. I highly recommend her.
