A Brief History of Bright Ideas Events Agency
Coming from an entrepreneurial family, running her own business was in Sharon Bonner’s blood. So, in the fall of 1988, she took the plunge into self-employment and opened the doors of Bright Ideas Events. In the earliest days of the company, many events from a wide range of clients were successfully produced. But, after 18 months of being in business, it was clear the company had to find a focus in order to deliver the best possible product to every client – specialization would be the key. Sharon took a long look at her client roster to get a better sense of what direction to take. In the end, it was corporate events that stood out as the most stable event market. Recall that she came from a lineage of business-owners, so she could talk the talk, something her previous corporate clients noticed and an aspect that Sharon realized could be her strongsuit. She had her vision and she began implementing it.
In 1991, she incorporated Bright Ideas Event Agency and concentrated solely on corporate events. For the next 3 years, despite countless opportunities to go back to private or small events such as weddings and birthday parties, Sharon stuck to her guns. Bright Ideas was to be first and foremost a corporate event production company. But there was a long road to travel. She knew that becoming an expert in the field would require hundreds, even thousands of hours of event coordination experience. And that’s exactly what she did…
Today, with over three thousand successful events and happy customers in her archives, not to mention a long list of industry awards to be proud of, Bright Ideas is a successful, Canadian event production company with a reputation for attention to detail, innovative ideas, and a meticulous approach to staging events. Over 3 decades later, our approach – client-focused, cost-conscious, and committed to delivering a ROI for our clients – has proven to be a successful formula.
