about DE&M

Dapper Events & Marketing LLC is the brainchild of Vicky Salazar and Nathan Daugherty – both of which have extensive knowledge and experience with event management, food service, entertainment direction, marketing, and good old fashioned hard work. 

Announcement: We now offer Bingo, Trivia, and Live Band Shows!

Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is simple – coordinating high quality events, entertainment, and expos in the Tampa Bay Area. Our work ethic and vision comes from many years in the food service, entertainment, and marketing industries – we’ve worked in the “trenches” and are now acting as coordinators to make things run smoothly! You can count on Dapper Events & Marketing to plan a structured event from start to finish.

Philosophy & Style

All too often, events have a tendency to be messy with no attention to detail. Our philosophy is this – create a stellar event that will make the venues and vendors ask for more. We want repeat business and consistent events! Our goal is to orchestrate a modern, classy, exciting, and breathtaking event for your venue.

Why Use Us?

Our years of experience speaks for itself! Take a look at what one of our vendors said about a recent event:

I participated in a market that Vicky put together and hosted at a brewery. Through the whole process she was very professional and communicated great with everyone to ensure we all were happy and knew what the plan was throughout the event. During the event she was always around if we needed anything and was extremely personable and easy-going. I would love to do another event hosted and run by Vicky… it was so smooth and easy.
