THE ART OF EVENT PLANNING...
 
Planning a great event is an art and at FSA we’ve mastered our technique. We’ve been creating unbelievable events with our clients for over 45 years. That’s right, our experience as event planners is old enough to have a mortgage, two kids, and a possible mid-life crisis. We have a reputation for excellence built on a foundation of more than four decades of superior planning and professional production. Our promise to clients is to work with you, side-by-side, to deliver one hell of an event.

Let’s get this party started. Contact Peg Plaut, VP Event Services, and find out how FSA can take your event to the next level at pplaut@hqtrs.com or 502-574-9945.
