Meet Denise Mariani

A native of Pennsylvania, Denise’s expertise is creating and managing PR strategies and special events for business owners and not for profits. Her objective is to identify the client’s unique event, talent, or product, target the appropriate guest or customer, create an impactful PR campaign, plan the details, alert the media, manage the staff and troubleshoot the inevitable.

Denise is proud to be a member of the 2017 class of Leadership Palm Beach County. She is a previous Board Member of Executive Women of the Palm Beaches and co-chairs its Membership Committee. She serves on the Women in Business Council for the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce. Denise is a former Board Member of Friends of Jupiter Beach and co-founded the Friends of Jupiter Beach Food & Wine Festival, its major fund raiser. She has been working with Share Our Strength, a national children’s hunger charity, for the past 12 years and serves as Co-Chair for its annual “No Kids Hungry” event. She is a member in good standing of the Palm Beach Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, the Gold Coast PR Council and the Association of Fund raising Professionals.

Denise lives in Jupiter with her husband Rick and enjoys walking to the Juno Beach Pier, trying new restaurants and wines, traveling near and far, and entertaining.

  • When we were planning our 10-year anniversary Gala at the Theatre, Denise was the only person to call! We wanted it to be a perfect tribute to a decade of our Theatre’s success and Denise made it just that. Not one detail was overlooked. We set very high expectations for this event and Denise and her team exceeded them on every level. Denise is extremely talented and was able to bring ideas and concepts to fruition with style and pizazz! She creates innovative and exquisite events that keep her customers coming back time after time. Her professional and upbeat demeanor are consistent with her integrity and passion to deliver excellence.

  • Mariani Marketing & Events was integral to the planning and execution of the Port of Palm Beach’s Centennial Anniversary. Denise went far above and beyond in her role as an event planner for our gala. She helped us with fundraising, bringing to light companies and organizations not originally on the port’s radar which resulted in additional sponsorships, partnerships and even publicity. From day one, she took on a project that had limited funding and helped find more. She happily took on multiple-entity oversight and detailed security and logistical requirements, navigating approvals for all. She conquered all of these without one slip the entire event. We had a beautiful Centennial Gala, thanks to Mariani Marketing & Events. The event received awards amongst our industry communications and events programs, and continues to be applauded by guests all around town.

She is especially skilled when it comes to event planning and execution, attention to detail and communication among many different partners collaborating on a single event; acting as the gatekeeper for us.
