Civilized Grows Event Capabilities With New Director of Events and Experiences

Civilized secures former Politicon Producer Alanna Uhrich to develop top-tier events

Los Angeles, CA and Saint John, NB (November 14, 2018) – A driving force in the consumer event space, Alanna Uhrich joins Civilized as Director of Events and Experiences. Uhrich is the former Producer of Democracy Village at Politicon – the heartbeat of the unconventional political convention – and brings her love and experience of creating memorable events to Civilized Events.

“I felt an instant connection with the energy and vibe of the Civilized brand and its people,” says Uhrich. “I like the big thinking, the class and timelessness of the brand and I want to be a part of it. I also want to contribute to Civilized being recognized globally as a sought-after, must-see, must-attend events producer.”

Uhrich is an expert in negotiation, project management, process creation, operations coordination and high-touch customer service. At Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, she was part of a team who brought the world’s best, most innovative artists to events like The World Stage Festival. At officialCOMMUNITY, she scaled and monetized artist brands online; pioneered VIP and fan ticketing programs for touring artists including Elton John, Roger Waters and James Taylor; and worked directly with promoters, agents and venues on over 6,000 shows and events in over 40 countries worldwide.

“Civilized has already established a reputation for delivering world-class events like the World Cannabis Congress and A Civilized Conversation with Chelsea Handler,” says Derek Riedle, Publisher of Civilized. “With an expert like Alanna on our team, we’ll be pursuing partnerships in political and music events with people like legendary concert producer Michael Cohl. Our events are only going to get bigger and better.”

Uhrich will lead a talented, award-winning team of event and experiences specialists in Saint John and Venice. Civilized Events produces exclusive, branded experiences for the cannabis industry and consumers including events held at the famed Montalbán Theatre in Hollywood, the annual World Cannabis Congress in Saint John, and the upcoming Moonlight Bazaar North American tour. Uhrich is based in LA and works in the Civilized Venice office.
