Filled with the desire to shine a spotlight on this region and its resident talent, The Erie Agency was born to do just that.  


Fate is a funny thing.

For almost 15 years, fate has continually been throwing Angela and Allyson together in different capacities. Life has taken them both on different paths, to different states and even different countries, but in the end their shared passions and interests always seemed to bring them back together. On countless occasions, Angela and Allyson have wondered 'what if’? What if we partnered up to take on the world?

As the saying goes, ‘fate loves the fearless’.

Keeping this close to their hearts the two ladies of Cleveland decided it was time to put their passions to the foreground of their lives and thus The Erie Agency was born.

What was meant as a simple event agency evolved into so much more.

We wanted to bring our passion for this region, its people and its businesses to the forefront of our potential clients’ minds. What we found was a deluge of local, talented people eager to bring new ideas and unique perspectives to events. We were positively overwhelmed with the abundance of quality vendors from start-ups to well-established businesses just within our own personal rolodexes ready to make their impressions on this ever-growing industry.

Our end goal here at The Erie Agency is to not only be a one-stop-shop for all our clients’ needs, but to also be a spotlight for other up-and-comers or established vendors to share their talents with a broader audience.
