Creating experiential events
with a story to tell

The best events feel like an extension of your voice and point of view. Whether that’s a social soiree full of personality or a corporate gala that’ll get people talking, Claire Durán’s event planning and design specializes in high-production concepts, executed with our meticulous logistical planning and creative eye. 


Claire was an absolute joy to work with on my organization’s annual fundraising gala! She ensured every aspect of the event’s design was aligned with our brand. She activated a unique, DC landmark for our venue, leveraged her network to ensure we were working with the right vendors, and came to every meeting and walkthrough ready with innovative and creative ideas. So many fundraising events can feel stagnant, but Claire breathed life into ours. Her passion comes through in everything she does, making her an asset to any event planning process.”
