Don Sumner, Sr. and Don Sumner, Jr, A.K.A. "The Dons", have been serving the “Special Event” industry for over 50 years. As father and son, they combined their creative abilities and artistry and formed what is now called Events Plus, Inc. (EPI) It started with a realization that there was a great need in Nashville to create event space in existing locations, since there were no facilities to house special events. They decided they could serve Nashville well in this area and in doing so more and more companies started choosing “The Dons” to create their events.
Their decorating abilities are far reaching and have enabled them to decorate venues from the east coast to the west coast. Such as Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, National Conventions in San Antonio, Conventions in Baltimore and as far away as Saudi Arabia. Along with their design teams, EPI has produced events for several Tennessee governors, numerous Presidential candidates, the Country Music Industry, Tennessee State University, Fisk University, Vanderbilt University and many other Institutions. EPI considers it a privilege and an opportunity to work in prestigious hotels and event venues across middle Tennessee to design decorative ballroom settings, entrances, backdrops, meeting spaces, and much more.
EPI ultimately believes what people have cherished most is the kindness they have shown all their clients and the ability to work with each individual to provide them exactly what they need. This continues to be the core of the business today and why all of us here at EPI love what we do!
