Cecchetto is the founder of Sequoia Productions and has been the event planner for the Academy Awards Governor’s Ball for 22 consecutive years. She will be sharing her experiences as keynote speaker of the event.

“This is an incredible ‘coup’ to have landed such a high profile event producer,” said FVEPA board director Lynn O’Brien.

“Cheryl is the ultimate in Hollywood events. We’re absolutely thrilled and know she will draw a huge audience from across the entire Lower Mainland.”

Cecchetto will be joined by guest speakers Richard Belcham, former footman to the Queen and royal press officer at Buckingham Palace, Deanna McIntyre, event coordinator with the MS Society Fraser Valley chapter, and Guy Steeves, social media marketing specialist for Constant Contact.

“We’re absolutely thrilled and in awe that we can get someone of this status and quality at our event,” said McIntyre. “It will be a really good opportunity for everyone involved in the event industry.”

The trade show and conference is being held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the gala and keynote speaker with Chery Cecchetto is from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
