As the CEO of April Severson Events, April collaborates with Venture Further Events to co-produce on larger scale events. April has been producing events for more than 15 years and has delighted audiences in London, Honolulu, Chicago, Bombay, Vienna, Portland, San Francisco, New York and Las Vegas. From the moment a client first presents an idea straight through until the last piece of glitz is swept up April is involved, planning, facilitating, managing, implementing, and designing. She brought a 17' lemon-colored snake named Sunshine to a Maharaja's silken harem tent; twirling aerialists to a hotel's lofty exterior; sparkling fireworks to a rooftop conference; and lots of enthusiasm (and precise coordination) to blowing up a nuclear cooling tower.
April is a woman of great range and her events reflect it -- each one unique and tailored to realize the client's vision, every one a distinct and satisfying experience. Before opening ASE April worked as a public relations director, a communications manager for an Oregon state agency, an account executive in Honolulu and at the London International Fashion Shows.
April lives with her glorious daughter and well-behaved poodle in SE Portland where she can be found most often preparing for dinner parties or digging away in her garden.
