“Plans are nothing; planning is everything.”
– Dwight D. Eisenhower
Whether planning a corporate event, be it a grand affair or an intimate gathering, a conference, or looking to promote your next big initiative, Tycoon Event Planning & Promotions is an award winning corporate event planning, special events, and conference management company in Edmonton, Alberta that works to create your perfect event, conference, and/or event promotions campaign! Not just your average event planner, we’re here, by your side, as your event partner.
We work to align events and/or promotional initiatives with marketing and outreach strategies. Generating greater awareness; creating greater outreach and engagement; education; recognizing and rewarding excellence; generating an increase in revenue or customer base; or providing a means by which to give back to the community, clients, and customers.
Events tell a story and it’s Tycoon’s goal to create a narrative to each event that we work on. Events are a vehicle for people to connect to one another and it’s important to appreciate how emotions, memories, dialogue, and conversation all need to be accounted for and a part of the event framework. We create an opportunity for people to gather, to provoke thoughts, and ultimately curate moments to connect people with one another and engage in a common dialogue. Ultimately the conversation ties back to the over-arching story that our client wants to tell so that we can better understand and identity with them.

We are dedicated to following through on every aspect so that you don’t have to, because to us, it really is all in the details! We believe success resides in both the customer’s and guests’ experience – whether that be a gala for 1,000 people or a company retreat for 5 employees.
