Join us for a dynamic evening of networking, trends, dining and fun with THE DESIGN EXPERIENCE with KATE PATAY! This exciting, interactive event will send you home with new ideas on décor, updates on what colors and design elements can give you the leading edge, and fresh concepts on incorporating décor design with food and beverage design elements.

Our host for the evening is the energetic Ms. Kate Patay, an award-winning leader in the event and hospitality industry in North America. Kate will be sharing her eye for detail from decor, flower arrangements, signage and all the details that it takes to create a memorable design experience, as well as all the latest trends and what there is to come in the future.

The event wouldn’t be complete without actual design! Come see the top San Antonio décor companies create inspiring displays of color and design expertise! Our presentation will incorporate these designs, PLUS they will be featured in our social media takeover by Insta-Queen Kate Patay!

The evening will be hosted in the lovely Crystal Ballroom with a beautiful meal by Absolutely Delicious Catering. Sophisticated table décor will feature Great Event Rentals to complete the look in an evening of deliciousness and design. Get your ticket today for this event!
