Marketing Services for Event Management
All the graphics design needs were met with great designs for the program books, ticket sales, and event signage. Changing the design year-to-year yet maintaining tone, message, and brand consistency of the organization are included in the event management services Joanne Klee provides.
Graphic Design Services for your Event
Graphic design is just the beginning of great event management content. We develop the invitation design and eloquence in the wording. On the interior of your program book, we include all copywriting needs. Message from the co-chairs = check. The evening program and event agenda = check. And behind the scenes we stick on the timelines to your agenda to make sure that all the planned events will fit into a solid timeline.

Joanne Klee Marketing and Events will develop the committee structure and manage the committee meetings. We ensure that everyone understands their committee member role, and the goals of the group. We attend the meetings, scribe the notes and report back to management, while keeping track of the details to make sure it all gets done.
