WHO WE ARE
President / Sr. Event Producer
Lori is an experienced event producer, but as much as she’s known for being the ultimate party planner and putting on events that thrill and delight guests, her real claim to fame is actually a little less exciting. In the wake of nearly two decades of events ranging from intimate weddings to celebrity concerts, Lori’s most impressive achievement is a lot of relaxed people. Specifically her clients.
To put it succinctly, Lori has a knack for seeing through the clutter and understanding what truly matters. She is adept at managing multiple moving pieces and moving the whole team forward with a calm demeanour that beautifully understates the true amount of work and passion she puts into every moment of every event. From a thoroughly organised approach to pre-event planning to a cool head on the big day, Lori is the perfect mix of professional and creative - just the person you need in your corner.
Lori began her career in the music industry working for Live Nation as a concert promoter, marketing coordinator, talent buyer and publicist working on elements of some of the largest concert productions in Western Canada. With an interest in artist development and artist representation, she moved on to The Feldman Agency in Toronto where she worked directly with touring musicians as an agent, talent representative and project manager. In her tenure at Feldman she worked on live productions and assisted in programming Canadian and International tours for artists ranging from Nelly Furtado, The Tragically Hip, Hedley, The Stills, Matthew Good, and many more. After 10+ years in the music industry and looking for new challenges Lori ventured into the events world working with e=mc2 events and Boom Goes The Drum where she produced national & international award-winning events. She has now launched her own company, Momento events, which offers turnkey event management services and a la carte production & event services.
