Last Wednesday Mabel Palomino stepped onto the stage at The Carlu in Toronto to accept the Notable Award for Best Event Planner in Canada. The Notable Awards, which highlight the achievements of young millennial entrepreneurs and professionals, shone a public light on a Montreal woman accustomed to working behind the scenes to create outstanding events for some of the most prestigious brands in the world.

"It is an honour to receive this award on behalf of myself and the Manina team, and for Manina Productions to be recognized for the work that we do," said Mabel. "We help brands stand out in creative ways. What sets Manina apart is that we are really meticulous when it comes to understanding the needs of our clients and what clicks for their brands. Our strength is our thinking. At Manina, we bring to the table a truly unique cocktail of expertise from the fields of dance, music, cinema, fashion, food, and advertising, which allows us to approach events from unusual perspectives, incorporating elements of fantasy with our signature glamour."

Over the past decade, Mabel has amassed a powerhouse portfolio, filled with spectacular events for a who's-who of leading brands, including Bentley Montreal, Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot, Guerlain, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal, Montblanc, TD Bank, IRIS the Visual Group, Muscular Dystrophy Canada and many more. She has had the pleasure of entertaining numerous celebrities and influential individuals, such as Sir Richard Branson and Prince Albert of Monaco. Her artistry has made her the go-to, trusted entertainment designer for luxury and innovative brands. "My grandfather called me 'Manina' when I was little girl," explained Mabel. "I kept the name as a reminder to never lose our childlike creativity."

In an age of fragmented media, numerous companies have redirected marketing dollars to events. "Brands can't just buy ads anymore and expect to reach people in a meaningful way," noted Mabel. "This is where our background as entertainers and our expertise in events is becoming invaluable. Our events have become a form of advertising, where consumer experiences can lead to sales."

With her talents being recognized at the national level by the Notable Awards, Mabel is excited about taking her mission beyond Quebec. "We are now producing events across Canada and are looking forward to expanding internationally," concluded Mabel.
