Avantia Luxe is a boutique meeting and event planning firm and looking to stay that way. Your meeting will never be a number to us. Every meeting, no matter the size or scope, gets our full attention.
We specialize in events that require a high touch and an elevated experience - where your guests need to understand that their presence is valued and appreciated, and the objective is that the event will stay with them long after they depart.
