About Us

The Burnside Group, or “TBG” as we sometimes call ourselves, is a top-notch team of thinkers, dreamers, planners and doers who want to help your organization create powerful experiences.

More than 25 years of event planning and time spent in the hospitality industry have taught us that focusing on both the details and the big picture yields the best results. And we have put that expertise to work for a broad cross-section of industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, technology, financial, non-profits, insurance and others. TBG is a woman-owned, diverse supplier who is ready to support all of your local, national and international event planning needs.

We match each client and event to the most compatible event planners and strategists on our team. Together, we’ll help you navigate the complex layers, lingo and legalities of event planning. We identify the gaps and pain points, offer ideas for process improvement and look at ways to save money along the way. Spending a big portion of the budget in a specific area? Let us take a look. We’ll find the efficiencies.

you made it possible!
Our event was in many ways the best ever. It feels like we finally have a rock solid ‘hotel team’ now that you’re on board. You help us sleep at night. This is tough, but you’ve breathed life
into us.
