Erin Branham
Apartment Two Events

Erin Branham is the owner of Apartment Two Events. She began planning events volunteering on committees and student government all the way back in high school, and continued to do so throughout college. It wasn’t until she began working as the Event Coordinator for Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, though, that she developed a love for large scale events. It was at that point that she was able to connect her degree in marketing to event planning. As Coral Ridge underwent a rebrand and new direction, the non-profit’s events were a tangible representation of the new Coral Ridge. The events that she worked to plan at Coral Ridge included festivals, retreats, banquets, and national conferences.


After over five years as Coral Ridge's event planner, Erin founded Apartment Two Events to continue pursuing her passion for corporate events. She loves to leverage her events to carry out marketing goals and strategies for an organization. Apartment Two Events’ mission is to create “Brand-Crafted Events.” Erin is married to Jimmy Branham, and they think the world of their two daughters, Isabelle (6) and Evelyn (3). She is a Palm Beach County native, and a graduate of the University of Miami where she was a Hurricane cheerleader.

Leaders Gather Thursday for Innovation and Holiday Cheer

Business leaders will gather at the second annual South Florida Innovation Awards (SFIA) presented by Florida Power and Light at the Galleria at Fort Lauderdale this Thursday, 4:00 pm, second floor near the Children's Theater.

Our competition moves South Florida forward and is first and foremost a civic activity done out of love and respect for our region.  We believe innovation creates competitive advantages and directly fuels our economy.

This is not a one day celebration but a sustainable effort of  identification and stimulation.  That is why we are looking for companies in all forms--big and small, for-profit and non-profit, high tech to low tech or no tech, across all industries and sectors.  We are especially interested in those in manufacturing, international trade, transportation, technology, and healthcare.

For innovation to flourish we must seek collaboration across a wide range of constituencies, including corporate leaders, start-up entrepreneurs, university leaders, faculty members and students, investors, and public officials.   (read more)
