Creative Events & Meetings

20 Years of Excellence


Laura Jordan, Founder

After working in the special event and entertainment industry, complemented by corporate and non-profit meeting planning experience, Laura Jordan founded Creative Events & Meetings in 2001. Referrals and recommendations drive growth year after year.

A solid network of contacts provides a key strength—experience. Over a decade’s corporate and association meeting planning has given me first-hand experience that overcomes event challenges. Success, I’ve learned, comes down to experience, partnerships and teamwork. Having someone who works with you when challenging circumstances arise is a huge benefit as is versatility. Knowledge, perseverance, and creativity benefit my clients because event planning can include non-traditional activities.

I would highly recommend Ms. Jordan to anyone looking to outsource their Annual Meeting or any other type meeting.

I worked with Laura as our event manager for 4 years, when I was the CMO of Sapiens, a global provider of insurance software solutions. Laura helped me with the planning and execution of Sapiens annual client summit, a 3 days corporate event for over 400 insurance executives.  Laura operated as a one-stop shop for our event management and helped me with all aspects of the event planning: the venue selection, contract negotiation, DMC and suppliers selection, program planning, evening and offsite events and most importantly on-site coordination.

Laura was creative, diligent, extremely detailed oriented and always within reach despite our time zone difference. She possesses the level of professional etiquette that is hard to match and always going beyond the call of duty. She understood our clients and our corporate requirements and helped us organized top quality events.

I have worked with her on many different events from tradeshows, to customer appreciation and an annual sales meeting. She works to keep the team on budget and collaborates well with vendors at hotels and venues. She is a great scalable resource to any marketing team or a perfect outsourced event management leader – her personality allows her to be agile for what the business needs.
