I am lucky enough to emcee and attend a lot of community events so I’ve seen it all! I’ve hosted events with Casey and attended others that she’s thrown and I am always impressed. She is hands down one of the best event planners around. She is organized, creative and fun- and so easy to work with. She makes sure every detail is handled- and handled well. When I know she’s associated with an event, I jump at the chance to be there because I know it’s going to be something good!
GROW SMART CLT
As Charlotte grows (44 people move here each day), it’s critical that we grow smarter. To help, we worked with Sustain Charlotte to launch a new monthly event series called Grow Smart CLT. These fun, yet informative events will dive into the multiple sustainability challenges that Charlotte faces due to our rapid growth. These events will be the second Wednesday of each month.

Partnering with Carben Events + Marketing for the Party Like a Mother CLT event was a great experience. Casey and her team are true professionals and went above and beyond the call of duty ensuring a successful event for us and our retailers. We look forward to partnering with them on future events.
I loved working with this company. Very organized and pays close attention to detail. I have only positive things to say about working with Carben Events + Marketing on the Party Like a Mother CLT event.
Perfect Fit Placement
Casey knows how to plan and execute fantastic events and help clients get the best results from a marketing campaign. Throughout the 5+ years we worked together, she grew Charlotte magazine’s Best of the Best event from a small gathering at a local mall with no sponsors to the party of the year in Charlotte with 800+ attendees and several major sponsors. She excels at turning turning an idea into a true representation of the significance behind the occasion. Casey thinks of every detail to go along with an event theme, anticipates the little things that you don’t realize are needed until you need them, and effectively communicates with clients and vendors alike. I wholeheartedly recommend Casey and Carben Events + Marketing.
I’ve worked with Casey for 4 years and have photographed over 40 of her events. We’ve worked together on everything from grand opening events to award ceremonies to pop-up shop events. She is always super organized and her events are always flawless.
