Passion, creativity, and wonder go into every event planned by our newly award-winning event planner extraordinaire Alison Owers-Graham.
Tourism Toronto superstar Alison Owers-Graham was the very deserving recipient of the “Planner of the Year” award at the PCMA Canadian Innovation Conference in St. John’s, Newfoundland last week.
Ever humble about her win, Alison says, “It was pretty special because I was in such fantastic company.”
Masterminding nearly 20 major events each year, she always aims to up the ante.
Of her dedicated event planner, Julie Holmen, Director of Sales, Corporate and Incentive at Tourism Toronto, says, “Whether it’s tracking down artists and performers, working with our members for news ideas, or bringing her own love of Toronto to life, Alison’s passion always shows!”
Where does she get her endless inspiration for her work?
“It comes from loving what I do. I get to create something different every single day, whether it’s a theme, a menu, or décor. Each and every thing makes me happy!” she says.
And planning events in Canada’s Downtown makes her job a little easier: “There is so much diversity in everything that is Toronto, you could easily have an event every day of the week and each one would be completely unique.”
Congratulations to Alison from everyone at Tourism Toronto!
