Her professional consulting and designer instincts reflect her commitment to providing service beyond expectations. In 2002, Cyndi took a leap of faith and created The Main Event Company, a full-service event production company. The Main Event Company was born through what she believes is fate. Failure was not an option. Months were spent researching the industry and researching the competitors. She didn’t want to be like everyone else and was determined to be one step ahead. Her perseverance paid off. Today, The Main Event Company is one of the top Casino/Entertainment companies in Georgia. 96% of our business is repeat clients and referrals. As a full-service Event Production Company, we can provide services from A to Z. With so many years in the event industry and so much success, the next step was a no-brainer.

What makes us different? Occasionally, Cyndi will get a phone call from someone asking how they can become an Event Planner or Designer and her answer is always the same. Creativity cannot be taught. It’s either in you or it’s not. She loves what she does and wakes up every morning excited about what lays before her. It’s her passion and it was her fate. She has spent 30 years cultivating relationships with support vendors in the industry and can assure reliability, professionalism, and satisfaction with every special event. Each and every client requires an equal amount of care, creativity, and attention to detail. From ideation to creation to execution, she makes sure her clients expectations are surpassed and she has created an amazing team to bring it all to fruition.
