Made in Israel Events – Event Planners, Tel – Aviv, Israel
We are Lior and Elad and we own a boutique event planning business called “Made in Israel Events”. We are also husband and wife. We specialize in planning events in Israel for people from overseas (Weddings, Bar/ Bat mitzvah’s, Parties etc.). We offer full planning event services, partial or day of event planning.
We live in the center of Tel Aviv where it all happens and we offer style and up to date services besides the traditional Jewish event, making the experience even better!
How and why did we start our events business?
We got married last year, and planned our own wedding from start to finish. We both really enjoyed the process and also were good at it! People are talking about how special our wedding was until today. We both planned our own wedding within a budget and managed to get everything we wanted within budget limits.
What do we specialize in?
I (Elad) have a vast experience in the restaurants and night life industries, fulfilling different managerial positions. A big part of my job was to plan and produce events (birthday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, anniversaries, corporate events etc. Doing so I worked with top industry vendors.
I (Lior) used to be a lawyer and am the best negotiator.I also have a vast background in the online marketing industry therefore I’m very skilled in finding excellent vendors who fit a certain profile we are looking for and negotiate prices which enables us to give the couples what they want at a price that is reasonable. I also love design – and designed Elad and mines wedding myself.
So together, we make a perfect team for this demanding market: Young Jewish modern couples who are looking to have a special wedding in Israel!
What’s our working process, and the inspirations for our work?
First thing we do is meet with the couple if possible, and if they are not in Israel we have a Skype meeting. We understand what their dream wedding looks like and what their budget limits are. We find the best vendors for them to choose from and we take care of everything so they can have a stress-less event. Also, they usually are not familiar with the Israeli vendors and culture and have a language barrier and that’s really where we come in and take over. We’re available for the couple almost 24 hours on email, skype, phone or whatsapp.
We inspire each other as we have a similar way of thinking but very different approach to things, so that enables us to challenge each other and always come up with new innovative ideas and ways to solve problems.
