The services Foundry offers fall under three event-related categories: strategy and pre-production, logistics management, and execution. Every client and event Foundry works with is different but no matter the size or scale, attention to detail and achieving success is the highest priority.
With over 15 years of experience in event design, creation, and management, Erin is the master behind Foundry’s biggest events.

Her favourite events create space for meaningful interactions to happen where guests create memories and are inspired. Daily, Erin oversees numerous little details while walking clients through the process of planning and executing all levels of events: small, internally focused brand launches to multi-day off-site conferences and festivals.
