—About Us

MNG Event Collective

MNG Event Collective was first conceptualized by MNG's sister company -- Mangia Catering Co. Through Mangia's 10 years of event industry experience and design expertise, MNG was born. We found it only fitting that MNG pull its name from its original source, MaNGia.  
MNG Event Collective is a creative studio for all your event needs. Collectively, we offer full-scale event planning, high-end design services and specialty rentals.
The best thing about us? We offer in-house planning and in-house design meaning that our team works together to ensure fluidity, functionality and a show-stopping, cohesive design throughout every event detail.
