What does Everyone’s Invited have that others don’t?
Production EXPERIENCE paired with an EXPERTISE in accessibility!
Laura Grunfeld, founder and owner of Everyone's Invited, has worked in event planning since 1983 and since 1999 has focused on improving event accessibility. Laura worked for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for 10 years. As the festival's Human Resources Director, both patrons and festival staff came to her with questions regarding access to the festival for people with disabilities. Seeing the need, Laura established the Access Program, which received national recognition, and awards from the State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans. The Jazz Festival's Access Program became a model for event access planning.
After moving from New Orleans back to her hometown in Massachusetts, Laura founded Everyone's Invited and her first big client was Bonnaroo in 2004. Since then Everyone's Invited has put together Access Programs for Governors Ball, Outside Lands, Electric Forest, TomorrowWorld, Firefly and many more. She and her team have helped the following events and companies improve their accessibility by providing these services. View a list of trainings and presentations.
