Shawn Shapiro
Event Planner

Shawn has always had a passion for creating innovative events. No matter the industry, Shawn has learnt to plan and execute projects in high-volume, fast-paced settings where attention to detail, organization and flexibility were key to success.

Shawn has a Post Graduate Certificate in Festival, Event and Conference Management from Centennial College. While in the program, he was one of two event management students selected to join a research study to analyze risk factors and risk mitigation in Canadian and Toronto mass events with the paper and findings submitted to the Toronto 2015 Pan-Am Games committee.

Shawn has planned and executed numerous small to large events from meetings, conferences, fundraisers, tradeshows and cocktail parties. His ability to see the bigger picture and carefully put together “puzzle pieces” in the event management process has helped in developing and maintaining strong client relationships and discovering unique ways to engage attendees.

When not creating “event magic”, Shawn loves practicing his cooking and plating skills for the day he invited to be on “MasterChef Canada” and enjoys exploring the smaller lesser-known events and festivals Ontario has to offer.
