A native of South Florida, Vella grew up surrounded by cruise lines, resorts and among some of the largest hospitality management firms in the country. In college, he studied Hospitality and Tourism before eventually landing a job with NCL Cruise Line in Miami.
In 2003, after nearly two decades of gaining invaluable experience, Vella struck out on his own to create C2 Eventz. Since that time, he has acquired accounts with numerous fortune 500 companies—managing conventions, corporate events, festivals, and trade shows.
In his spare time, he regularly supports the American Red Cross, participates in the annual Relay for Life, and donates to various other charities. Joseph Vella is an active member of Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) as well as the Meeting Professionals International Georgia Chapter (GaMPI).
