Deborah Porter was born in San Francisco, California and spent half her life in Fairbanks, Alaska and the other half in the Haight-Ashbury of San Francisco.

As an event marketer and emerging business mogul, Deborah has a passion for creating ingenious event concepts, designs and viral marketing campaigns. With almost 18 years experience, her travels have taken her to Australia; Bermuda; Rio de Janeiro, London, Paris, Rome, Athens, Hong Kong, Dublin, and Barcelona, managing special events for high powered execs and a diverse list of clientele. Deborah began her event planning career in the late '80's working for Safaris & Tours and Creative Incentive Marketing (a subsidiary of Carlson Marketing). In the early '90's she won service and creative awards for her contributions to the Apple USA Sales Development Conference as well as with AmeriCorps.

Most recently Deborah formed, Creativity Made Fresh, an Event Marketing enterprise as an outlet for her insanely creative energy. "My expertise really is in blending together brands, products and entertainment elements that provides clients with eye-popping, thought-provoking, full-immersion brand experiences...". Her team recently created and produced, "Manolos & Martinis" a fan based event in anticipation of the 2008 Sex and The City movie release; working exclusively with Wynn Las Vegas' Manolo Blahnik brand. The event was a successful marriage of brands that created a WOM buzz and media attention of the Las Vegas Review Journal, the Las Vegas Weekly, the Hollywood Weekly, 944 and Ebony Magazines.

Deborah now studies Kabbalah and makes her home in Henderson, Nevada with her dog, Bobby Brown and 200+ pairs of designer shoes.

Event Planning

Category: Event / Party Planning
As event an ‘experience’ marketing consultant, I create and design spectacular and flamboyant event ideas using absurdly imaginative ingredients. No. I'm not just event or party planner; like a master chef, I blend together brands, products and entertainment elements that provide your customers with eye-popping, thought-provoking, full-immersion brand experiences. I thrive on developing promotional buzz ideas around your product or service. With over 18-years experience, I genuinely understand that you may have just one shot to deliver an unforgettable touch point.
