The talent behind the scenes at Getting Eventive
Getting Eventive is owned and operated by Claire, with help from an amazing team of people that step in to help with fabrication and for larger events.
Claire was born into the event world. Her grandparents owned a jewelry business that participated in gem & mineral shows throughout the Southwestern United States. She began helping at these shows almost as soon as she could walk and talk. It is at these shows that Claire learned the ins and outs of what goes into putting on and vending at trade shows of varying sizes.
In school, Claire studied molecular and cellular biology and then later studied elementary education. She had dreams of being a pediatrician or a teacher. But, the event life kept calling to her. At worked she was the one tasked to organize the baby showers, retirement parties, and birthdays. She was asked to help plan inservice activities and field trips.
After a few years Claire realized that the dreams she had were not where her passions laid, but she hadn't quite discovered what she wanted to do when she grew up. So, she continued to work and volunteer for trade shows and conventions. It was at one of the conventions that Claire had been volunteering that she ran into a few people who would really help her see what it was she wanted and needed to do. They encouraged her to start her own business, and after awhile (with a proverbial kick in the butt from a friend) she took the plunge.
In June 2011 Getting Eventive was born!
