The Event Group International (TEGI) one of Washington D.C.’s top event planning companies, has just announced that it is expanding its corporate office locations to five new states: Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Ohio. The announcement comes on the heels of an announcement last fall that TEGI had been selected as the exclusive wedding planners and event planners for several of the area’s most elite country clubs. TEGI’s founder and CEO, Tanya Wilbon, says that their consistently innovative, customer-focused approach has led from one success to another and that this has enabled them to drive their expansion forward into new markets.
According to Wilbon, the corporate expansion into these new areas is a logical next step: “We’ve actually already been working as event and wedding planners in Georgia and all across the country, and even internationally. So geography was never a barrier against us crafting spectacular events, parties and weddings in the first place. These new corporate locations will put more feet on the ground in those places so that customers planning a wedding in Tennessee or Ohio, or wherever will be able to get a closer look at what we do, and we’ll be able to use our skills to develop new relationships with vendors in those areas, which will only increase the level of service we are able to provide as a event designers and planners.”
Wilbon attributes their steady growth and expansion to her company’s beyond-extraordinary event and wedding planner philosophy. “One of the many things that sets us apart is that we really are a one-stop shop when it comes to event planning companies. Through our carefully cultivated relationships, we are able to provide literally every aspect that goes into planning a wedding or any event. From venue, invitations and other event collateral, to catering, photography, entertainment, design and theme, florists, logistics, security, lighting, and everything in between, we’ve got it covered. Whatever our clients need is what we provide, and we fully customize our services to their needs and vision. My goal as an event and wedding planner is to shield my clients from stress while creating spectacular, flawless events that they and their guests will rave about for years to come.”
That drive to go above and beyond is what Wilbon says led to TEGI being chosen by several of the area’s most prestigious country clubs as their exclusive event planners. Aside from the Washington D.C. area, TEGI is also the exclusive event planning company for Life University, a chiropractic college in Georgia. So to Wilbon, the expansion makes good sense. The Testimonials section of the company’s website also features raves from clients for whom TEGI acted as wedding planners and event coordinators all across the country and even in the Caribbean.
Wilbon says that the driving force behind their expansion and success will continue to propel them forward. “We have an unwavering commitment to customer service. The partnerships we build with our clients and the communities where we work mean everything to us. There are a lot of event planning companies out there, but the thing that makes us different from everybody else is that we are event designers. Our passion for designing with a vision, attention to detail, and attentiveness to our customer’s vision for their event, and our ability to transform those ideas into something magical that always exceeds expectations—that’s what sets us apart. As event and wedding planners, we simply cannot rest until we know that our clients are astounded with joy at what we’ve been able to create for them. That’s what drives all of us.”
