fc.jpg Francesca Campo
Event Planning, Consulting & Design

Newport is known around the globe for spectacular galas. The competition among both corporations and nonprofits is fierce when it comes to creating events that impress and accomplish a range of goals, from raising funds to building clientele. With more than a decade of experience, Francesca shines with a talent for merging organizational and fundraising needs with her trademark creativity and first-rate production and management.

Francesca’s events have not only been the talk of the town but have attracted supporters, garnered media attention, and produced record-breaking fundraising amounts for many clients, such as the Newport Art Museum, Redwood Library, Aquidneck Land Trust, and Child & Family Services.

The ability to visualize events of large scale is born of Francesca’s artistic side, which was inspired by her mother, an artist, and a childhood spent in Italy. But the ability to quickly assess a situation and organize and plan for all factors needed to make the vision spring to life comes from her father, an academic. The hallmark of a expert event planner, Francesca is a pro at layering – adding the touches that make a gala memorable and fun while never losing sight of the larger, strategic execution that makes an event successful.

An effective communicator with outstanding interpersonal skills, Francesca articulates the vision for an event in a clear, concise, and logical way that everyone involved can understand. She controls all aspects of an event from hiring and training staff to managing budgets.

As director of development for Child & Family Services and an event director for Art Unfurled at Newport Art Museum before launching her own business, Francesca knows Newport, its people, and how to move an event from concept to execution. If partnerships can make her event stronger, Francesca forges ties with others in the community, compelling them to be part of something that is vibrant and exciting.

Prior to coming to Newport, Francesca was director of production and operations in Boston for Rafanelli Events.
