Today we’d like to introduce you to Laurent Meler.
Laurent, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born in cape town south Africa ( February 5th, 1987) and grew up in south of France in city called MARSEILLE. I graduated Business school in Marseille, France in 2008.
I start organizing events during my internship in Ireland ( gold tournament, weddings, and business meetings) when I was 19th.
Then when I graduated business school, I decided to organize a yacht event in south of France ( marseille, st tropez). Aalways been passionate about the entertainment business and new challenges, I decided to travel to Los Angeles by myself. I found an internship in real estate company and work in french restaurant. Then work as a personal assistant to a lawyer. I work also in a bar. Then decided to get back to doing what I love: Event planning and connecting people.
While I was working bartending I meet my future business partner, she was organizing law conferences between China and USA. We share a passion for fashion and event planning and this is how we started in L.A.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has been good, because of the way we organize our work and manage our team, we like to give free actions to our staff, we trust and like creative employees. Getting sponsors has been not easy because we are a new company.
That’s why My main focus is to connect with brands and represent my company, I always prefer to meet face to face, my potential clients.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Meler Productions – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Meler Productions is an event & marketing company that we have offices in Los Angeles and Hong Kong. We produce events like LUMIERE (international fashion event), Halloween Party, tech events and professional conferences. Besides producing events, we manage events for our clients.
As of now, Meler Productions is known for the international fashion event, we launched it this year in July in Hong Kong and it was a success. I had 11 designers from Hong Kong, China, Sweden, New Zealand, https://melerproductions.com/lumiere/.
We are a multicultural company, my co-founder is from Hong Kong and I am from France, we bring in different culture to our events. Besides, our target for each event is to have everyone no matter if they are our partners, sponsors, audience, get something (knowledge, potential business opportunities, new contacts) out of it.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
