My main source of event inspiration comes from social media. I love seeing what event creatives across the world are coming up with. What new event trends are they executing? Who was the planner or event designer? What was on the menu? These are questions I ask myself when I come across events on my feed. I’ve put together a list of 10 sources that inspire me and make me excited about being a part of the event industry. Click on the photos to follow these accounts on Instagram!
