Event management business opens

Tracy Brinkman

Tracy Brinkmann has launched Plan Ahead Events-Western Colorado, a full-service meeting and event management business based in Grand Junction.

Brinkmann brings to her venture more than 25 years of experience in the insurance industry, including corporate positions in sales, marketing management and training. During that time, she planned regional incentive trips, sales meetings and conferences. One event involved three agency partners and local high schools in increasing the awareness of the dangers of drinking and texting while driving.

Brinkmann holds a degree in business administration from Regis University in Denver. She’s a member of Meeting Professionals International, the Event Leadership Institute and Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce.

“I enjoy event planning and appreciate the value of face-to-face marketing,” she said. “As a Western Colorado event planner, I really want to service our community’s unique needs. Event marketing has proven to have the highest (return on investment) over other marketing platforms.”

Brinkmann said she decided to go with a Plan Ahead Events franchise because of the resources the company offers.

“It’s an international company with a network of industry experts, and we can provide our clients with an extensive scope of services.”
