Kevin Cohee, CEO
Finding the meeting and event planning industry now seems to have been my destiny. I cleaned and organized my Matchbox cars when I was a child and so it comes natural to me to pay extra attention to the details. A serial entrepreneur since 1971, I approached this career with a resume that reflects my entrepreneurialism, hospitality and publishing industry experience and I am a certified Graphic Designer from the University of California, Davis. I mentor others and am active in professional organizations within this industry. I excel at meeting challenges, like those that come with planning and executing meetings, contract negotiations, sponsor and exhibitor development, food & beverage details, and speaker and attendee management. Challenges drive me to deliver a truly unique experiential environment at each and every event.
I served on the Department of General Service’s Small Business Opportunity Program for the State of California, have been a guest lecturer at California State University, Sacramento [CSUS] for a Certified Meeting and Event Planning [MEP] course, at Sacramento Job Corps, Florin High Schools’ Culinary Arts program, the Sacramento League of Theatres, and Arts Business Council in Sacramento, CA. I’ve published industry articles in the Sacramento Business Journal, CA Meetings + Events magazine, Event Planners Association newsletters and Smart Meetings magazine. I’ve volunteered for several local agencies like the Non-profit Resource Center and March of Dimes. For more than a decade, I offered an internship program for college seniors and currently, I have a leadership role with the Independent Meeting Professionals, Sacramento [IMPS] group.
