Julie Wong, CMP
Focused. Successful. Confident.
Focused: For as long as she can remember, Julie has always been fascinated with event planning and the hospitality industry. An Arizona native, she attended Northern Arizona University and earned her Bachelor’s degree in hospitality. While at NAU, she was accepted into its prestigious Hospitality Exchange Program which sent her abroad to study in Switzerland. Upon return to the United States, she participated in a work-study internship with the PGA at various golf tournaments including the Phoenix Open and the AT&T National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach.
Successful: With a proven track record working with resorts, private golf clubs, corporations and catering companies, Julie gained the business savvy and the expertise she needed to provide premier event planning and consultation services. Through her personal and professional experiences with numerous events, involvement in the community, passion for planning, and entrepreneurial spirit, Julie opened The Event Concierge, a minority and woman-owned business, in July 2006. In 2010, Julie was accepted into Rotary International’s Group Study Exchange and traveled to Australia to network and educate/learn from other professionals in hospitality in their country.
Confident: From coordinating the colors of the flowers on the tables to making travel arrangements for a group of five hundred, Julie enjoys all the aspects of planning. Her attention to detail is the back bone behind the company’s success. Nothing makes her happier than to see the final event come together, and knowing she’s had a hand in the personal or professional successes of her clients.
