Puerto Vallarta - The premier destination Event Planner in Mexico continues to be EM-Vallarta. EM (Eventful Moments) is a Destination Management Company that specializes in boutique-style events that create unforgettable experiences from weddings, birthday parties to corporate events.
After winding down their second successful season, the economic impact that this burgeoning industry has on Vallarta became clearer; destination weddings and other special events are an integral part of Vallarta's economic success and EM-Vallarta continues to be the industry leader for Banderas Bay.
Last year, the Bay played host to approximately 175 weddings, bringing an estimated 14,000 additional people to the area. When you consider that the average total wedding costs $91,000 USD (including all expenses from airfare, hotels, tours, reception, etc.) and that each attendee spends on the average $300 USD additionally for an average 4-day stay, Banderas Bay alone received over $20,000,000 USD in wedding-generated revenue - and that is for weddings alone, not to mention the destination corporate events, birthdays, anniversaries and other special events that took place throughout the Bay last year.
"Vallarta has quickly become one of the most sought-after destination wedding locations in the world - currently listed as a top 10 favorite among brides according to Bride Magazine. With the wide variety of beautiful locations and professional services to accommodate every taste and budget, Banderas Bay is poised for significant growth as the premier destination in the world for not only weddings, but destination special events of all kinds," stated Zac Campbell, founder of EM-Vallarta. "We are thrilled to be the leader in this growth industry and proud to be part of the economic evolution of Banderas Bay."
From concept to clean-up, EM-Vallarta can realize your dreams for that perfect event. EM-Vallarta defines a new level of customer attention that combines personal experience with the best of local services from around Banderas Bay to create an unforgettable celebration.
For every event, large or small, no request will go unconsidered - from help on legal documentation for your wedding or helping make that business convention "go off without a hitch," to planning a whale watching expedition for your 50th birthday party, if it is possible, EM-Vallarta will strive to make it a reality.
EM invites you to explore their complete list of available services on their website, em-vallarta.com, complete with online questionnaires to ensure that your event is perfectly planned and individually-focused.
With years of experience coordinating Puerto Vallarta weddings and special events for groups of all sizes, EM is the most well-rounded catering and event company in the Banderas Bay area.
