The team at Caravents completed their most ambitious project yet this March, with the Caesar’s Entertainment Group, Total Rewards Launch. It took place in four cities with 8 A List Musical artists, 3 hosts, and hundreds of crew, simultaneously, with Cara at the tip of it all. Cara Kleinhaut offers her rich experience in planning and design artistry from beginning to end with personal management and precise execution.
