About Us


MakeitSpecial Events was founded by Julie Hosson in the summer of 2018. After gaining experience in marketing, trade show management and sales, she realized that her passion lay in event planning and creation. Her future career path was further solidified when she worked as an event planner before she branched out and created her own.


Although Julie’s professional experience may have jumpstarted MakeitSpecial Events, her love of event planning started at a very young age. She fondly remembers the time, love, and effort that her mother would put into her birthday parties growing up. Each event was meticulously planned and executed so that Julie and her friends and family could celebrate in special ways. For one birthday, her mother even went as far as to create an entire casino that was manned by her family members. Julie and her friends spent the day in their own personal Las Vegas, playing games that offered grand prizes of Monopoly money (they were still children, after all). 

Julie wants everyone to experience these kinds of memories. Special events bring everyone together, and they can create some of the best moments that will last a lifetime. Whether it’s a wedding or a corporate event where you make your most important career connection, Julie’s combination of personal and professional experience allows her to provide clients with top-quality services that still feel as though they have been made with a personal touch.


The purpose of MakeitSpecial Events is to take all of the struggles out of planning your own event. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or experience necessary to make an event idea a reality. We want to help you ensure that whatever you are trying to plan, together we can help you make that happen. We work closely with you to establish exactly what you need, then we set out to achieve it.


As a company, MakeitSpecial Events strives to provide individualized and unique services that ensure that every event is special and one-of-a-kind. Whether you are planning an online corporate event, a conference, a wedding, or a baby shower, our team is ready to help. We believe that all events are important, and we provide a high level of support for every situation. We have carefully selected a diverse team with a wide range of skills and capabilities, to ensure that no matter what you need, we can take care of it.
