Maria & Tim Covell

Maria's passion for events began at age 10, when she organized a charity carnival in her backyard, and that passion grew into a 30 year career rooted in the principle of serving others. Honesty, integrity, and unparalleled organizational skills coupled with the warmth and friendliness of a true "people" person are the hallmarks of Maria's success. Maria is equally as passionate about family. When not planning events for others, you'll find her spending time with her four children, husband and two dogs.

Bringing over 25 years of experience leading organizations in effective revenue growth and market positions, Tim joined Capital City Events in 2003. As President, he is responsible for all sales and marketing activities for the company and can be found passionately promoting our destination management industry and has served multiple leadership roles for the Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI).

Thank you for your attention to detail and providing us with great choices for our guests. I have a feeling we'll be back to DC sometime with another group of executives so I am sure if we do, that I will reach out to you immediately!
