founder, CEO

We wanted to share the story of our very own co-founder and CEO Terry Vogel. Terry, along with her husband Steven Vogel, founded Event Kings in 2008 but has been an event planner and producer since 1994. Below is her story. 

I was living in Florida and came back to Long Island to work at my family's event business. I was always in sales so I felt comfortable working with clients. What was different in the event industry is how working relationship often evolved into a friendship. I was with clients who had so much at stake for one event and were emotionally involved in the success of the event. I became motivated to make it perfect for not only me and my company but for my client as well. I cherish the relationships I have with my clients and consider it one of the best parts of my job. 
I take care of them like I would a loved one.

Throughout my career, one of the most memorable events I ever produced was for the Northrop Grumman. It was a picnic for over 2,000 guests with a circus theme. I had various acts performing throughout the day, including a live elephant! I won an international gala award for the best corporate picnic in the world! It was such an incredible opportunity and an amazing experience.

More recently I had the opportunity to produce and run a 3 day conference for Taboola. We managed the conference, implemented team building break outs and produced and decorated their dinner. The theme for the entire weekend was Superhero and my team and I collaborated to create amazing results!

I am so grateful for my team! Everyone from my amazing assistant to the other sales executives to the warehouse manager works together to represent Event Kings in the best light! I know I couldn't do half of what I accomplish without them and so Steven and I try to make EK and great company to work for. We have beach day and have taken the entire office on four trips for reaching sales goals. 
 I always say I am blessed, and I truly believe I am!

weight training, fitness, Terry Vogel

When I'm not working or spending time with my family I am training. I have recently become dedicated to fitness and weight training and even placed second in a competition. I love being physically active and striving to reach a goal, it keeps me motivated and focused. 

family, love, marriage

Working in the event industry has given me so much and has made me grow as a person. I met my husband at work when he came in to discuss printing fun money for casinos. It was love at first sight and he has been my best friend and partner for the last 23 years. He understands and supports me and we work together to create a beautiful life for our two children.
