When it comes to planning events, it doesn’t matter if you’re a Fortune 500 company or emerging small business, everyone wants the wow-factor that will leave attendees in awe and send them home marveling at what they experienced.
Enter planit inc.: the wow-experts.
“Wow can be anything from being on-time, on-budget, or on-point,” said Madison Arrowsmith, Event Production Director. “Our version of wow brings the best products and practices to the event planning process and ultimately to the attendee’s overall experience.”
Planit Inc. is a women-owned, client-centric firm that provides unmatched service and professionalism. Their event expertise, creativity, work ethic, and event producers are second to none.
But in order to deliver the ‘wow,’ planit inc. focuses on deeper, more thoughtful aspects of their client’s requests.
“We get to know and understand their objectives and corporate culture,” said Arrowsmith. “We work tirelessly on their behalf, and act as an extension of their team. Their goals become our goals.”
While their portfolio and current client list has them jet setting from New York to Los Angeles and everywhere in between, planit inc. proudly keeps their headquarters right here in Omaha because the Midwestern work ethic is in so many ways their competitive advantage.
“Clients and vendors alike claim our levels of customer service, polished competence, and event execution are unmatched. We plan events of all sizes, in all budgets, and in all business silos. Our industry reputation is exemplary.”
As proud benefactors of that deep reservoir of Midwestern creativity and determined spirit, planit inc. repays that privilege through countless good works and charitable endeavors throughout the Omaha area.
“We provide our event production services to local non-profit organizations, and in 2020 alone assisted them in raising over $1.9 million for their important causes. Our co-owner Lesley Brandt is passionate about The Lane Thomas Foundation, and we provide complementary event services to produce their annual Lane’s Light Gala, which raises funds to support families of children needing life-saving transplants.”
“People come first in all that we do,” said Arrowsmith. “We pride ourselves on exemplary customer service both with our clients and our vendors.”
With an outlook like that, what else can be said, but “wow.”
