Meet The Face Behind IMESevents

By IMESevents |


I’m Carol Lathrop, proud Founder and Chief Event Officer of IMESevents.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

Event planning has been something that always excited me, so back in 2006, I started working on large conferences as Independent Meeting & Event Services. In 2011, I took a sabbatical to help some family members through medical issues. In 2016, I came back with a new calling to help people celebrate any event. I re-branded the firm to “IMES”, using the initials of the original company so we could keep the history. That’s when we became IMESevents, and our focus was firmly fixed on making special events all the more special.

With over twenty years of experience under my belt, I have grown my business from the ground up, building a network of quality vendors who can make anything happen, while creating memories of a lifetime for others.

I believe that IMESevents is meant to be a resource to people and of service to them. With that in mind, we create your vision and stay within your budget, while taking care of everyone who attends the event so that they have the best experience possible while producing a memorable event.

Seeing my clients’ vision and objectives come to life is the most gratifying part of my job and being able to deliver my best work without constraints is immensely rewarding.

At IMESevents, we never stop learning. I surround myself with quality professionals, and we work as a team with our clients. We also respect others for their contributions to the event. For us, responsive customer service is our highest priority, and we strive to ensure our high qualities of service are always met.

When I am not at work or planning events, I enjoy spending time with family, attending church, scrapbooking, traveling, watching movies, and supporting my boyfriend’s interest in German Folk Dancing.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
