INFO:

The Creative Finds event planning company was established in 2007 by Nicci Battilana.

After working in the Hospitality Industry for over 14 years (specializing in group travel allotment sales for a few of those years) and having been a part of many different public and private venues selling her own creations since 2002, she decided to jump in with both feet and begin organizing her own events. Nicci has learned over the years what helps make a show a success in terms of advertising, location, selecting of vendors/product , and having those extra little treats for your customers and vendors alike to make them feel welcome and appreciated.

The Creative Finds Winter Artisan Marketplace is now heading into it’s 8th successful year taking place on Nov 15 & 16, 2014.

During our 7th year (lucky number 7), we are introducing our first annual “Into the heART” Art Retreat!  Located in a naturally beautiful Rainforests on the West Coast of CANADA! Join her on this artful journey/pilgrimage!

To make sure that she knew all that she needed to know before taking another big step with organizing 4 day Art Retreats, Nicci attended the 13th Artfest held in Port Townsend, Washington in March of 2012 to see an Art Retreat from the perspective of the Student. She then attended night school to obtain her Event Planning certificates (level 1 & 2), which she received in October of 2012 (level 1) & December 2013 (level 2).

We look forward to seeing you!

To show you the respect she has for both Teesha & Tracy Moore and what they created with Artfest, Nicci would like to share with you a message she sent them on Jan 17, 2013 (Teesha’s birthday):

Hi Teesha & Tracy,

#1 ~ Happy Birthday Teesha & I hope you feel better soon.

#2 ~ I just wanted to let both of you know how much I appreciate the work you have done in the past and am so very glad I attended Artfest last Spring. It was an absolutely amazing experience. I have wanted to bring something similar to western Canada for the last few years. I asked many art friends who had attended retreats, which one I should visit to see it from a students perspective and they all said to attend one of yours. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am now happy to say that I have my first retreat underway & wanted to thank you for some added inspiration and a great deal of insight.

Nicci
