In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, and Beth Kormanik, editor in chief of BizBash, hear from Jes Gordon, owner of New York-based design and production firm Jes Gordon/Proper Fun. The veteran producer discusses how she masterminds event design to create a stellar first impression, and how she thinks through the entire guest experience.
