Event teams on demand


Executing events better than they were planned



The idea for Happily actually came out of a conference. Our founder, Sarah Shewey, was one of the first people to work at TED after they took their talks online. While there, she co-founded TEDActive, an experiential retreat that brought together the next generation of TEDsters to develop new ways of engaging with ideas worth spreading like TEDx and TEDEd.

Unhappy with the inflexible and unreliable options to assemble production support staff that met her standards, while also inspired by the ways technology could improve the way we meet people, she left her position at TED to start Happily - the first marketplace of freelance event planners. Our screening process is designed directly from Sarah's experience at TED, ensuring that your team will be some of the best in the business.
