Founded by Kim Sharp and Donna Humphrey, Rendezvous Collective, connects communities with commercial destinations to create a lifestyle engagement.  

 

We met in the trenches of the renowned Abbot Kinney Festival, working side by side for eight years. Through our events we discovered we have a rare ability to connect people with each other and build community.  We felt a need to fill this void in the marketplace. We decided to take our combined 20+ years of large scale event production, expand our scope and form Rendezvous Collective. 

We're the dream team.  Working together over the years on various projects and now all under one roof. Each of us brings a unique talent, expertise and community building experience. Event production, entrepreneurship, marketing/PR and graphic/web design are all in-house at Rendezvous Collective.  We love collaborating (we're known to finish each others sentences).  We're certain our enthusiasm for our work will come through in the engagements we create for our clients.

 
 
 

Kim Sharp, Co-Founder of Rendezvous Collective, began producing festivals and corporate events over 12 years ago. Ranging from small intimate gatherings to large scale multi-block productions. She has produced events in multiple cities coordinating with a variety of municipal agencies; police, fire, health, transportation, permitting, street closures, etc. Over the years, Kim has developed loyal cadre of vendors; equipment, artisan, food, staff, security, etc. and takes great care fostering these key relationships.

Kim loves the challenge of crafting events and infuses her infectious energy into each new project. She still gets butterflies before each Rendezvous and is filled with awe and satisfaction when the last guest leaves.  

Before she was bitten with the production bug, Kim spent over 15 years in the customer service world of retail, which she loved!  Her years with GAP not only honed her management skills, it fostered lifelong friendships and afforded her amazing travel opportunities.  On the sunset of her GAP career, Kim found herself working in Japan, training managers and opening stores.  This incredible cultural experience would turn out to be just the first of many global encounters.  If you know Kim, then you know that traveling with friends and family is her favorite thing on Earth. She'll dash out of town at a moments notice and is always planning her next great adventure.  

 

Donna Humphrey, Co-Founder of Rendezvous Collective, shares the helm with Kim and brings extensive large scale event production and entrepreneurial experience to Rendezvous.  For the past eight years, as Chair of the Abbot Kinney Festival Association (the nonprofit behind the festival), she rolled up her sleeves and worked with Kim on all aspects of the event. She is particularly proud of raising awareness that the festival is a fundraiser and benefits many local charities and organizations.  As a Venice stakeholder, Donna is very involved in her local community.  

Early on Donna planned numerous large scale events, including earning her chops managing hospitality for seven corporate sponsors of the 1984 L.A. Olympics. Other large events include themed Super Bowl VIP tailgate parties for NFL Properties, CBS Affiliates at the Hollywood Bowl, and POW WOW at the L.A. Zoo.  

She's committed to conscious living and promoting Fair Trade principles. She can while away her days wandering through flea markets, junk shops, (curbs & alleyways), hunting for treasure. Happiest outdoors, Donna enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking and exploring off-the-beaten-pathways - always keeping a curious eye open for potential Rendezvous venues.  Oh - and did we mention her devotion to the LA Kings.
