Founder story

 

An experienced leader and innovator in the hospitality and event management field, this Dominican Republic native is the solution you are seeking.  Combining her degrees in Hospitality and Hotel Management with a tenacious desire to create and succeed, Emilia was quick to establish her presence in the hospitality services industry of South Florida - one of the most competitive markets on the planet.

 

During her tenure as the Conference Services Manager at the Koven Center, Emilia reinvented the way the Koven Center executes events and redefined the phrase "successful event,"all while expanding their meeting and catering services through new client acquisitions.

 

Leveraging her successes, Emilia earned a position with the iconic Miami Beach hotel, The Fontainebleau. She viewed this as an opportunity to improve her logistical skills, while mastering the hotel side of the industry and fine-tuning her gifts for client relations and account retention.

 

With accolades piling up and a reputation for "thinking outside the box," Emilia's talent soon caught the attention of world renowned restaurateur and events impresario Barton G. Weiss.  Emilia was named Program Manager over Barton G's prized "High End" events team and placed in charge of a team of over 50 field staff, corporate events, conferences, and incentive and association programs. She surpassed all expectations, earning both rave reviews and the respect of her industry peers, as she successfully orchestrated over 100 programs and countless major events.

 

After taking some time off to welcome her first child into the world, Emilia set her sites on her homeland, the Dominican Republic, and she hasn't looked back!  Comprised of some of the industry's most talented and savvy partners, EP Events is a virtual dream team of sparkling personalities, sharp minds, and logistical geniuses. Boasting unparalleled expertise and combined years of experience, the EP Events team is the premier choice when planning your next event or program in the Dominican Republic!
