The Evolution of a Brand
After independently building the Bates Events brand in Northwest Arkansas and the surrounding areas, I realized that part of my passion was identifying and mentoring the next generation of event professionals who possessed the natural gift of hospitality. There comes a time in every entrepreneur’s journey that you realize in order to continue succeeding, you need to build a team that can help you take your business to the next level. In my opinion, strong leaders hire and develop team members and empower them to become stronger in some areas than the leaders themselves.
This growth in the company took place five years ago with the addition of Amanda Reed and Stephanie Benton. We all have fun stories about how we came to be a team, but we will share those with you another day! Stephanie’s corporate planning and destination meeting skills are second to none and Amanda Reed’s design talents and her eye for detail have taken the Northwest Arkansas wedding industry to heights I never imagined.
By creating separate brands tailored to the difference in services we offer, we have focused our skill sets to best meet the growing needs of our clients. Amanda Reed has taken the wedding industry by storm and will continue to grow the wedding planning and design industry with the rebrand of Bates~Reed Brides to Amanda Reed Weddings. In the same vein, Bates Events continues to grow and expand in the Meetings and Special Events industry in the Northwest Arkansas area and beyond.
I’m proud of our entire team, our success and our journey to this point and eagerly anticipate the success of Bates Events in the Meeting and Events Industry and Amanda Reed Weddings in the Wedding Planning and Design Industry as both brands continue to be the standard of excellence in our respective industries.
