Amidst the stiff competition in the wedding coordination business, Imagik Events continues to make its mark in the events planning and management industry as it celebrates its 10th year anniversary.
It was 2006 when Kathy Andal-Guillermo or simply Ms. K to her clients, took on the challenge of putting up her own events management company, Imagik Events. The name “IMAGIK” was a combination of the words “imagination” and “magic”- the two essential qualities which gave the company it's distinct signature, with a touch of ‘Kathy’ in the K.
The Magical Formula for Success
“We have wonderfully been making moments magical for 10 years,”Ms.K proudly shares.
Organizing memorable and meaningful weddings, debuts and even corporate and social events has been Imagik’s forte. Reinforcing their core expertise is their strength in events planning and management which has been a vital factor for their success and resilience. The experiences they have acquired have taught them valuable lessons about the assurance of growth in this competitive industry.
Imagik Events always goes for the extra mile. They do not simply comply with what is assigned to them but extend their services over and beyond. They see to it that they are prepared for any eventuality that would happen in every event. In addition to having one solid team, they guarantee quality in every event. They only do one wedding per day. “We focus our attention in making the event worth remembering. What matters most is the quality of the event,” Kat explains.
Sealing their success is the importance they put to their overall appearance. They carefully plan their attire in every event, believing that looking and dressing professionally is a way of demonstrating and gaining respect as well as advertising themselves for repeat and potential clients.
