With its breathtaking landscape, rich history and endless sources of adventure, Jasper National Park presents an idealistic canvas to create unforgettable experiences for your next destination event.





The best stories are told around the campfire. As it happens, that’s exactly where our story began.

Surrounded by good friends and bonded by a common background in hospitality, we became pals and eventually launched Jasper Event Management.

In 2016, Brett was bitten by the travel bug and left Gold Coast, Australia, with a working visa and an urge to explore. His curiosity and adventurous spirit led him to  Vancouver, where he experienced his first taste of Canada. After a year on the West Coast refining his Canadian palate with Caesars and double-doubles, it was time to move again—this time for love in the Rocky Mountain town of Jasper. 

By the end of 2017, Brett officially traded sand and beaches for snow and seasons when he made Jasper his new home. 

Here at JEM, Brett rocks a few hats. He skillfully manages everything from client relations and budget management to behind-the-scenes event coordination. Brett’s friendly, reliable and easygoing nature pairs well with his thirst for excitement and ability to thrive under pressure. He’s a true event mastermind. 

Brett loves the strong sense of community that comes with living and working in Jasper—where co-workers are friends and colleagues are neighbours. When he isn’t immersed in events, you’ll find Brett hiking the local trails, biking in the Maligne valley or enjoying a glass of wine with friends.

Jasper is so much more than a beautiful backdrop.

It’s a  feeling  that keeps wanderlusters coming back for more. And it’s a  lifestyle  revered by adoring locals, eager to share it with the world. 

The fresh aroma of pines on a dewy summer morning.  A soft guitar riff accompanied by a crackling fire. Hearty laughter dissipating into a star-filled sky. 

This is the stuff memories are made of. The intangible details that make an event in Jasper so unforgettable.
