“It all started in 2003, when I left France and came to Dar es Salaam to work in the hospitality industry putting on events.
By 2007 I found an opportunity to manage and develop a new entertainment company in town, and I jumped at the chance to turn a dream into my day-to-day job.
A year later, I realized I wanted to create my own events from the vision right through to the living breathing creation. I just knew it was the only way I was going be able to realize the fantastic events I was envisioning. That’s how SMK events was born.
My approach to creating events is rooted in the vision that all events are art – living art. You’ve got to be fearless to be able to carry on an event that has elements no one has ever tried to fabricate or produce in this city.
I feel passionately about developing not only my own skills in this very unique and diverse market but also that of my team. Event planning and production is all about details, timing and working with what you’ve got and that takes a certain comfort with working in a high degree of uncertainty. After all is said and done – if we didn’t put an event together with grace, we didn’t succeed. It’s my motto. It’s my mantra.
Welcome to SMK Events.”
