Made it, Ma! Top of the world!
Welcome to Les Pages, the first and only entirely merit-based list of the nation’s best event companies, most talented event professionals, and top event venues. To determine who would be listed in Les Pages, our editorial team spent 10 months conducting research and interviewing members of The Salonniere 100, our annual list of America’s 100 best party hosts, as well as event experts and local influencers who attend events regularly. Many honorees were also queried, so there is a peer component to Les Pages as well.

Anyone planning an event—or simply wishing to send a breathtaking floral arrangement or delicious treat to a friend or colleague—will find Les Pages to be a welcome resource. Unlike existing event-vendor directories that include most any business willing to pay a fee, Les Pages is completely merit-based—companies cannot pay to be included. In addition, to keep Les Pages current, companies are reevaluated for inclusion on an annual basis, and new companies are added as merited.
“In a world of pay-to-play vendor directories, Les Pages is a refreshing departure,” said David Pressman of David Pressman Events, an event planning company listed on the Los Angeles page of the directory. “As an event professional, it’s a meaningful honor to be listed, and for people planning important events, it’s a much-needed and trustworthy resource.”

Les Pages is a natural follow-up to The Salonniere 100, a best-of-the-best list also based on months of research and interviews. Together, The Salonniere 100 and Les Pages shine a light on the people in America who are exceptional at leveraging the power of social gatherings to enrich the lives of others. The Salonniere 100 celebrates the gifted connectors who host parties, and Les Pages honors the exceptional professionals who bring events to life.
