Event Planning & Management

Merkato specializes in planning and executing events that capture media attention and engage consumers.  Our team has planned and executed events ranging from the largest rally on Parliament Hill, to the Grate Canadian Grilled Cheese Cook–off and four Guinness World Records.

We create tailored events that are always on strategy.  We start by working with clients to develop a detailed event brief that thoroughly explores, defines and coordinates every aspect of an event, including:

  • Catering
  • Celebrities
  • Charity involvement
  • Lighting
  • Media management
  • Permits
  • Photography
  • Promotion
  • Propping
  • RSVP management
  • Safety and security
  • Sampling
  • Social media integration
  • Sound
  • Staging
  • Venue
  • Videography
  • Web streaming

To ensure every event is flawlessly delivered, we offer senior on-site support and make sure every detail is taken care of.

We develop creative options for the perfect photo opportunity to ensure our clients’ brands, products and people are front and centre.

Whether it’s a product launch, a large public event, stunt, news conference or workshop, Merkato’s experience and our attention to detail ensures your event, large or small, will be a resounding success.
