About Selvis Morales

I’ve been an event planner and experiential strategist serving corporate and nonprofit clients for over a decade, having planned everything from association business meetings to VIP receptions to trade shows. My career as an events professional has taken me around the globe and I love each and every second of it because it's one of the few jobs where being nit-picky pays off. I have worked with Professional Conference Organizers (PCOs) and third-party Destination Management Companies (DMCs) serving as the business event's client liaison to streamline project management and reduce headaches. It’s safe to say, it takes a lot to catch me off my game.

What Makes Devil's in the Details Special?

Devil’s in the Details spends every planning moment thinking of bold and innovative ways our clients can carry out their corporate or nonprofit events with a fresh perspective. As your event planner, Selvis Morales, CMP dares to dream big so your business events can embrace risk with little to no hesitation. Devil’s in the Details is not afraid of the unconventional and neither are our clients.


The goal at Devil’s in the Details is to help our corporate and nonprofit clients achieve high-impact business events in an ecologically sustainable manner without depleting wallets. We want you to feel good hosting an event, guilt-free.


We're all here to have fun! Planning business events is one of the most fulfilling careers out there. Event planning is our passion and Devil’s in the Details loves sharing that enthusiasm with clients. #eventsarefun
