About

A “glint” is a reflection of light, if only for a brief moment. The same can be said for events, which bring people together fleetingly. We here at Glint Events feel strongly that these moments should be completely reflective of those that are hosting.

At Glint Events, we’re about much more than event planning. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide practical solutions to achieve extraordinary results. We believe in working within the limits of your budget to realize an event that has no limits at all.

While planning an event may seem overwhelming to some, it’s what we do every day. Our detail-oriented nature helps ensure that everything moves along exactly as it should. From behind the scenes to front-and-center with your guests, we work tirelessly to give everyone an ideal and unforgettable experience.

This event is yours. We’re simply here to help make it a reality.

Glint Events is a Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certified company.
