There’s a New Face in #DowntownVernon
The DVA is thrilled to welcome their new Events and Promotions Coordinator, Heather Sharpe to the team! She has already hit the ground running with plans well underway for the up-coming Free Parking Days and of course all the performer applications for this summer’s Civic Sounds and the Sunshine Festival.
Heather is a multi-award-winning event producer with many years of experience leading corporate and community strategic initiatives. She has twice produced the largest public event in BC (Honda Celebration of Light 2014 & 2015) as well as the largest New Year's Eve event in Canada (Vancouver 2015). Now, she is bringing all that talent and expertise to the DVA to elevate the engagement at our signature events, while re-energizing promotions and marketing for the local businesses. “I love to think outside of the box and come up with creative solutions that meet the objectives.”, said Heather Sharpe, “There isn’t much I haven’t experienced in the world of events and marketing and I can’t wait to bring all that knowledge to benefit my local community and the DVA members.” Heather taught Events and Promotions Management at the Centre for Arts and Technology in Kelowna and is often asked to speak on sponsorship best practices around the world. With a passion for all things event marketing and an infectious, positive outlook we know that you will love working with Heather as we move forward together to make the DVA’s Events and Promotions program the best yet.
