As owners of Velocity Event & Destination Management, Marina Atwell and Michel (Mike) Maillet are known for creating intimate, memorable experiences for local clients to clients from around the world.

They have combined decades of experience in the hospitality industry as premier event and destination management specialists. Their ability to create unforgettable experiences for small intimate gatherings to large scale events and conferences, have gained them success, respect and accolades in their industry.

Their strengths lie in establishing creative ways to achieve client objectives, regardless of complexity.  Their continued success of “making potential happen” comes from their love of entertaining and the joy of creating unique experiences.

With a dynamic, dedicated team of locals by their side, they are the best-of-the-best in this region in all of their service offerings.

As local event professionals, Marina and Mike have expanded their offerings by opening their home to exclusive clients. The aptly named Halifax Lake House takes local hospitality to a new level as they embrace and invite special guests to enjoy the simple, world-class pleasures of the place they call home.

With one originating from the heart of the beautiful farm and wine country of the Annapolis Valley, and the other with deep French Acadian family roots in the rugged coastline of the South Shore of the province, together we have an an extreme passion for our Nova Scotia home and take east coast hospitality to heart.  It gives us tremendous joy to be able to provide world-class experiences here in Halifax that demonstrate first-hand why we love both where we live and what we do!

At a time when the world is in such turmoil we want our clients to know that we understand just how important the warmth of social interaction is, virtually or otherwise.  Rest assured, we can provide you with an amazing experience, anywhere, where you will feel both carefree and safe.

We look forward to the ongoing expansion of our family of new friends and who that will include!
