Eventique - April 2022

Like Father, Like Daughter MEET ANGELA Eventique’s Logistical Mastermind “I called my dad and said, ‘I have a tarp, if I use it to cover the dance floor, will that be fine?’ He said, ‘No, you have to put something in the middle, and you have to sandbag it …’” With her dad’s help, Angela pulled off a logistical miracle and saved the dance party. It was just one of many moments of her internship that impressed the Eventique team. After finishing her stint as an intern and graduating with a major in communication and a minor in emerging media, Angela worked as a freelancer for Eventique. She earned her MBA and joined the company full time in 2021 as a production assistant, and her research and communication skills continued to impress.

[When she graduated] I took over as event lead, planning this massive thousand-person Relay For Life in my town,” Angela says. “I loved the craziness of planning the logistics of this massive one-day event. It was 12 hours, and there were so many components involved in it. I was on-site working 24 hours straight,

She’s part of the team handling a high-powered IPSoft event at sea that includes a dance floor on the roof of a yacht. The prep work is smooth sailing (pun intended) — but then, challenge strikes. “All of a sudden, the weather forecast changed, and they said it was going to rain,” Angela recalls. “Amelia [Eventique’s production coordinator] looked at me and said, ‘Okay, it’s your job to figure out what to do so that the dance floor won’t get wet.’” Angela sped off to the hardware store and bought the biggest tarp she could find. Then, on the way back, she used her trump card. She called the best logistical mind she knew: her dad.
