New events company sees opportunities in Cork’s rising

Wednesday, 3rd July, 2019 4:02pm

A new company was launched in Cork recently that hopes to offer services with a particular expertise in the cultural and events sectors.

Eventi Management is an events and marketing company founded by two well-known Cork figures in the arts and business worlds, former festival director of Guinness Cork Jazz Festival Sinéad Dunphy and Cork Business Association Chief Executive Lawrence Owens.

The new venture was launched in St Peter’s on North Main St last Thursday to serve numerous industries including the cultural sector in Cork and beyond.

Eventi may be new, but its founders boast a wealth of experience across numerous sectors. The company provides individual service or full end to end event planning and management services across all manner of occasions, like festivals, arts events, conferences, product launches or special occasions.

Besides understanding what’s involved in setting up and managing an event, they also have access to an extensive network of industry partners which enables them to bring in new services as required.

Eventi is offering a wide array of services including marketing, PR, strategic reviews, and artistic programming as well as a whole host of other services.

The duo’s clients already include Triskel Christchurch, Cork LGBT+ Pride Festival, Cork Community Art Link, Ballydehob Jazz Festival and the New Irish Jazz Orchestra with more in the pipeline already, they say.

Lawrence Owens said of the new venture: “I’m delighted to have this opportunity of working with Sinéad as our styles and experience complement each other and I look forward to bringing our innovative ideas to life through Eventi Management.

“Now that we are officially launched, we can move forward and start delivering for our clients, both existing and new.”

“Eventi Management is and has been a dream of mine to bring to fruition and having Lawrence as a business partner is ensuring that this dream is fast becoming a reality and a new way of life! Our interest in working with the cultural and corporate sectors in a creative manner is exciting to us and allows us the opportunity to bring all facets of our skill sets to the fore,” Sinéad added.

Sinéad Dunphy has been involved in the arts for over twenty years as a performer, producer, director and event organiser of many prestigious arts festivals, shows and events.

Before she worked on the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival in 2018, she was the festival manager of the Cork International Choral Festival, where she saw the festival double in size while also increasing its international profile through its artistic programme.

Sinéad was the recipient of awards through her work for both festivals and was named Cork Business Woman of the Year with Network Cork.

Lawrence Owens is a highly experienced business professional who has worked in many sectors but specialises in retail.

He has significant project management experience, as well as strategic planning ability.

As Chief Executive of the Cork Business Association, Lawrence works regularly with all major stakeholders in Cork city.

He has also worked extensively in business development and consultancy within the SME sector.
