Event management is more than managing a series of checklists.  

It is knowing how to create and source and six different types of fish that will also satisfy the strict culinary standards and expectations at a sustainable seafood dinner hosted in partnership with the James Beard House.  

It is the expertise to manage the needs of complex challenges presented by unique venues such as the Hearst Castle, The 90th Floor of the Freedom Tower or the Grauman’s Chinese Theater.  

It is the intuition to know how to handle the needs of guests at the at the Golden Globes and next week manage a diplomatic cocktail party at the home of Consulate General.  

Whether your gathering is in the intimacy of your home or in ours, our events team brings the experience, knowledge and care from managing the above events to your help you plan and execute the event you dream of in your mind’s eye.  

Whether the gathering is large or small, at Calissa or your home, we bring the care, attention and experience drawn from these events to every aspect of our event management for our clients.
