Lead Event Planner 

Bridget Dawson


Proudly from Upstate NY, Bridget found her passion for events while interning at a film festival. In one year, she went from working as an intern to the festival operations manager and from then on chased every unique opportunity the event industry has to offer.

Bridget's work in events has taken her from coast to coast and to 42 states. She has coordinated the building of multi-million dollar conventions, wrangled reality TV stars, produced festival brand activations and has led the stadium logistics for an international soccer tournament. 

Upon moving to Austin, Bridget found the city's “Keep It Weird” energy paired with some of the country's biggest events a perfect fit.

She enjoys being hands on with every event load in, and working closely with vendors to develop the logistics that lead to executing a flawless event. Outside of work, you will find Bridget exploring the outdoors with her dog or trying a new recipe at home.
