Thank you for your consideration and investment into your event with MarQuel’s. We are a new events and experience company formed in 2020 by Mark & Raquel Babcock.
Raquel has over 20+ years’ experience in the events industry, working with nonprofit organizations, corporate clients, and network groups throughout the Seattle area. Currently, Raquel is the Hospitality and Events Manager for a large corporate company that provides senior housing across the United States. She manages all corporate events, retreats, and conferences for the executive team, general managers, and directors of the company. This includes design concept, marketing, event branding, vendor negotiations, travel coordination, budget management, food and beverage development and on-site coordination.
These experiences have inspired Mark and Raquel to start their own business offering clients their knowledge and hospitable service to you. Often you can find Mark at friends and family events helping right alongside Raquel and now as a partner assisting her at your event.
Raquel is a current member of several national and local chapters in the event industry, including NACE, ILEA, MPI and the Concierge Guild of Seattle. She has also earned her CMP certification through MPI, a rigorous testing of best practices in the event industry and is a Nationally recognized award.
In 2020 Raquel also earned the “Best Corporate Event under 50K” with ILEA at the Emerald City Applause Awards for an annual event that took place in downtown Seattle.
