Top 50 Event Designers 2019: André Wells

The Washington-based Wells on designing an experience beyond beauty.

“From concept to conclusion, it’s about the vision, the journey, the aesthetic, and the end goal. If the vision is ethereal it must make sense and the end user must get the vision and the feeling. The event is not only captured in the beauty but also in the experience, the flow, and the follow-through.” Pictured: Alvin Ailey’s 20th annual Opening Night Gala Benefit
