“After every party we’re always left with an inventory of amazing things; finally with Event Leftovers, instead of packing them up and storing them in our warehouse, someone else can enjoy them at their party”, explains Hollywood planner Colin Cowie.

Party planning just got a bit easier and greener for your pocket and for the environment with the launch of EventLeftovers.com, a new website that offers an online marketplace to buy and sell gently used and new party supplies that are left over from events rather than throwing items away that often are not recyclable products. It is completely FREE to register and post items. There is a small transaction fee charged to the seller when an item is sold.
World-renowned event production and design company, Colin Cowie Lifestyle, is a registered seller on the site making available to people all across the country amazing items from its high-profile events. “After every party we’re always left with an inventory of amazing things; finally with Event Leftovers, instead of packing them up and storing them in our warehouse, someone else can enjoy them at their party”, explains Colin Cowie.
Event Leftovers is for both event professionals (event planners, florists, venues, party stores, nonprofit organizations, rental companies, corporate planners, etc.) and nonprofessionals (anyone that organizes a party for themselves, family or friends). Event Leftovers is appropriate for all types of events, parties, productions, trade shows, expos and conventions and so much more.
There is tremendous waste in the event industry; whether it’s items bought but never used, used but are still in excellent condition, or merchandise from past seasons sitting in warehouses, garages, offices or stores. Event Leftovers was created to take advantage of this excess by making these items available for secondary events. Event Leftovers is particularly timely in today’s down economy when people are looking for the best possible deals as well as ways to recoup event-related expenses and find the best deals available.
The concept and site was created by Allison Krumholz, a seasoned event planner in the Los Angeles nonprofit community. “I was tired of seeing so much incredible stuff go to waste after events I produced and attended”, explains Allison. “I knew there was a market for these items, but there was not a good delivery system with which to distribute them so I created this website for the event industry.”
Whether selling, buying or both, Event Leftovers offers its users a multitude of benefits including, but not limited to an additional revenue source, access to hundreds of event-related items at the best prices available, a way to help the environment through recycling and repurposing materials, a risk free opportunity, free registration and listing, a rating system on sellers, a secure site for all payments, access to potential buyers and products from all over the country, event planning tips from event professionals, increased company exposure for professionals with the option to promote their business with each posting and on their user profile, and the opportunity to find amazing items from the warehouses of event professionals and homes of America.
