It is hard to believe it has been 12 years since I moved back to my hometown of Omaha, NE and started Turner Events and Marketing! It has been an amazing journey of working with great organizations and making friends along the way.
Our Event Management Company Through the Years
Our first event was a Metropolitan Hospitality Association meeting for 30 attendees.
We’ve also produced the Tachikara event at the NCAA Volleyball Championships, conferences and conventions from women’s events to software as a service (SAAS) for more than 2,500 attendees, worked with the USA Swimming Foundation on the Olympic Swim Trials, as well as planned the first BaconFest for the Salvation Army.
We have produced events from our own backyard to Chicago, San Antonio, Los Angeles, Kansas City, and Colorado Springs.
Recent Certificates and Awards
We’re proud to announce that Turner Events has won some recent awards and recognition’s.
- Lisa earned her Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP) designation this year. This certificate recognizes event professionals who have successfully demonstrated the knowledge, skills and ability essential to perform all components of a special event.
- Lisa also earned her Hubspot Inbound Certification. The Inbound Certification helps marketing professionals stay on top of the latest trends in the inbound world. This, in turn, will help Lisa offer better digital events services and more strategic meeting planning.
