Corinthian Events

What better way to enjoy a 90 degree day than touring Boston Harbor in a mini speedboat?!

Lucky for Tamara and Jill, earlier this week they were able to do just that!  Boston Harbor Mini Speedboats gives renters  the opportunity to captain their own F-13 mini speedboat while navigating Boston Harbor and viewing historical sites along the way.  After learning a few safety and basic operation tips, Tamara and Jill were off!  They followed a knowledgeable staff member through the harbor who used a walky-talky to point out places like the JFK Library, Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, USS Constitution, and Zakim Bridge.  Both Tamara and Jill returned to the office very impressed with their experience.  What a unique and fun way to explore Boston!


Tamara's ready to ride!

An Evening Fit for the President

Harbor Colombia Point JFK Event Planning DMC

Planning a company’s entire week of activities when they visit Boston for a conference can be a daunting task, but Corinthian Events is always up for the challenge!  Recently we gave a group visiting Boston from all over the country and world the full Beantown experience.

Throughout the week guests enjoyed private tours of our city’s highlights!  From the scenic waterfront to the rich history of the Back Bay to famous Fenway Park they took in the sites of one of America’s oldest cities (and our favorite).

To top off the week, guests attended a gala dinner at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum; an I.M Pei designed building that serves as a vibrant tribute to the life and times of the 35th President of the United States.  Guests were escorted by a troop of motorcycle equipped state police to Colombia Point (what an entrance!) and greeted by a solo bagpiper playing tunes adjacent to a red carpet entrance.  After arriving they viewed a film on JFK’s life then explored the museum which follows the 1960 campaign travel and his formative White House years.

Upon exiting the exhibits, guests were met in the Pavilion with cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres, and an amazing view!  You really can’t beat an 80-foot glass wall that looks out over the harbor at the stunning Boston Skyline!

After cocktail hour guests moved upstairs to Smith Hall for an elegant three course dinner and another amazing view of Boston.  Rich linens and elegant seasonal floral arrangements gave the room a regal look and echoed the evenings presidential feel.  The finale to the night was a performance by the famous Harvard Krokodiloes.  Harvard University’s oldest and most prestigious a cappella singing group, the “Kroks”, were a big hit and even receiving a standing ovation from all the attendees.  Of course, that meant for the ultimate finale, an encore!

Hot Tip: Human Signage

Event Planning Massachusetts

Use your on-site staff in more ways than one!  While planning the events you are producing perhaps you will come across the need to use your staff as Human Signs.  They can share direction with guests (see our “air traffic controllers” above), wear clothing that matches the event decor, or even wear a sign that explains what they are serving.

A friendly face and the personal touch will go a long way!

We are very excited to introduce you to the two newest members of the Corinthian Events Team – Jamie and Megan!  With 13 staff we are currently the largest CE has ever been!


Jamie Hellesen joined Corinthian Events in April 2013 with more than ten years’ experience in the event planning industry.  Her background encompasses wedding planning, restaurant management, and destination management, and she spent over six years as an account manager at a large Florida-based DMC.  Jamie is a New Englander at heart – she grew up in Southern New Hampshire – and is excited to be continuing her work in destination management here in Boston.  Clients will notice her impeccable organization and detail, and she makes multi-tasking under pressure look like a breeze.  When she’s taking a break from the logistics of your event, Jamie enjoys CrossFit, spending time with her new nephew, and capturing the world through a lens.

Massachusetts native Megan Woonton joined Corinthian Events in April 2013 with a passion for events and experience spanning private, social, and non-profit event planning.  She graduated from Endicott College in 2011 with a B.S. in Hospitality Management, and spent a year studying in Madrid, Spain and Sydney, Australia.  Megan’s vivacious personality and keen attention to detail make her a pleasure to work with, and stress can’t get this girl down; she thrives on adrenaline and has been found skydiving over the Great Barrier Reef and bungee jumping in the rain forest!  Megan loves being part of the entire planning process, from meeting the clients right down to closing the door after another successful event.  When she isn’t designing stunning events, Megan also loves traveling, trying new restaurants, and hiking with her two Golden Retrievers.
