Our Mission and Vision

Bring together Lincoln’s event professionals by providing education and resources to enhance and support professional growth. In doing so, we hope to create a connected event community in Lincoln through the sharing of innovative ideas and practices.

Our Story

In 2012, EventLNK was founded by five local event coordinators. The group was eager to find local educational opportunities for event professionals. After months of searching they discovered there was a need for such an organization. With the financial support of Union Bank, EventLNK held its first meeting in March 2013. EventLNK has grown from 30 members to 200, simply by word-of-mouth. We continue to look for relevant venues, educational topics and networking opportunities to help our members grow professionally.
