The Purpose of gathering
Gathering has been designed as a place where meeting and event planners can gather ideas and information to help us in our everyday lives – both personally and professionally.

I have always felt that the word “gather” was a kinder, gentler way to say “meet”. I like that it can mean to collect people or things. Meeting planners do both we gather the needs, wants, desires, and wishes of our clients, and we create events out of those concepts so that people can gather in a meaningful way.

Come back often to see what new information I’ve gathered to help us live, work, and plan better!
