JODI MORARU brings over 25 years of event design, production and management expertise to the SPACEZ platform. Producing top level luxury events and the firm belief of the value of team, is what has made Jodi’s event company, EVOKE, stand out in the events industry. Jodi is known as one of the pre-eminent luxury event planners in the US. Venues, caterers, production companies and other event planning firms have sought out Jodi’s advice as a means of enhancing their own business models and relevancy within the market. Her company EVOKE is one of the most in-demand event production companies in the DC Metropolitan area due to its high level relationships, ability to navigate the industry needs and create trend setting experiences. Jodi’s understanding of the market, client needs, and longstanding vendor relationships allows her to see what is relevant and what is needed in the marketplace. To that end, her vision for the need for a venue management, marketing and sales company led her to create SPACEZ, the first company of its kind. SPACEZ is not only a company that owners of unique spaces can turn to when looking to maximize revenue but also “the” company that clients can turn to when looking to find just the right venue for their event.
Suzi Molak is events director at the Long View Gallery, where clients capitalize on her dynamic background and long list of successes in the art and events industry. Suzi brings to Long View a unique perspective gained through years of high-profile activity in New York City. Suzi moved to DC in 2007, and began helping individual and corporate clients with unique event ideas and planning. Through these pursuits, it quickly became clear that the DC area was missing something so many of her clients and others desired - a modern venue for exciting, inspired events. Suzi's vision built Long View Gallery to become the leading event space in the DC area, currently hosting over 150 corporate events and 40 social events per year. Getting a space on the Long View Gallery calendar is quite possibly the only complaint a client may have.
Branding, marketing and targeted client outreach were the key ingredients Suzi implemented to break the mold of the DC Venue Market when Long View Opened in 2009. Suzi's attention to detail, impeccable client relations, and knowledge of the DC events market keep new and returning clients raving about all things events at the Long View Gallery.
