MEET Marina Luri-Clark
Event planner & designer
Marina is a true citizen of the world. Raised in New York and Geneva by Italian parents, she has traveled extensively and speaks four languages fluently. After graduating from Syracuse University, Marina started her public relations career with Donna Karan as Director of International Public Relations in Milan, Italy. That experience led her back to New York, where she became Director of Communications for Hermes USA. She then established her own public relations firm, 24/7 Communications, and traveled the world working with some of the most exclusive fashion brands. Her clients included Rene Caovilla, Alessandro dell'Acqua, Loro Piana, and Brioni. Never satisfied with the status quo, Marina also put her talents to work in an executive role at a Fortune 100 Financial Services company. But when the opportunity to start Marina Luri Events came about, she jumped at the chance and has never looked back.
Marina Luri Events has planned and produced social, corporate & non profit events throughout Europe & the United States for over 10 years. We are a hard working and enthusiastic group of creative people that love what they do. We have planned and produced events as small as an intimate wedding for two - to as large as a sit down dinner for 900 with a private concert by Andrea Bocelli. We have worked in venues such as the NY Metropolitan Museum of American Art, (where we produced a private concert by Beyoncé) – and the Central Park Zoo, (where we were entertained by Charlie the sea lion). Our overseas events include a party in a palazzo and a polo championship on a private island. We understand and appreciate the venues that we work in, the people that we work with and the team effort needed for an event to be successful. We also don’t give up until we have exhausted all possibilities. We work tirelessly to find solutions for our clients. Whether it’s transporting a wedding cake to the island of Capri or ushering VIPs on small boats through the narrow Venice waterways – no task is too small, no challenge too great.
