As one of the Boston area’s premier event design and event management companies, our clients can expect to work with some of the most creative, energetic, and inspired individuals in the business. With that said, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the design and planning aspect without actually understanding where those brilliant design ideas are coming from.
In an effort to get our clients more acquainted with our amazing team, AOTE is tracking down our employees in their natural habitat (the design and planning room, or warehouse) and asking them everything from what inspires them to what makes working at AOTE so special.
