From Kenny G in a Clock Tower to Parties in Pac Heights Castles, These 11 Event Planners Create Experiences Throughout San Francisco

On numerous occasions, poorly planned events have turned into public spectacles. Lest we forget the comedic tragedy of Fyre Festival or the much more grave outcome of the Altamonte Festival of 1969, the importance of hiring experienced and well-prepared event planners can make or break your day.

The staff at SFist is regularly invited to events throughout the SF Bay Area. From product launch parties to restaurant openings to the occasional socialite gathering held in a rich guy's Pacific Heights castle (if that's your thing), we've seen events range from grungy to 'Kenny G at the top of a clock tower.' Regardless, of the purpose or intended aesthetic, the best events are always managed by one of SF's many talented event planners.

Besides the obvious, there is a multitude of reasons that events with experienced planners turn out better than their amateur equivalents.

  1. Budget Management
  2. Vision Mapping
  3. Cost Savings
  4. Risk (And Disaster) Mitigation
  5. Aesthetic Attainment
  6. Day-of Relaxation
