Executive Producers


Toronto, ON. 5th Element Events has always taken pride in their involvement within the community. Whether it be the Sunnybrook Foundation, Wellspring or helping kids go to summer camp, it’s always been a vision to give back to foundations and causes that mean something to their employees. 5th Element Events is extremely proud and honoured to be a part of a project that has garnered worldwide recognition for its incredible vision and story telling. Joining event power house and friends at POP Kollaborative and many other incredible organizations, 5th Element Events has assumed a role as Executive Producer of the Documentary ‘Legends of The Knight,’ a film directed by Brett Culp that inspires change.

Legends of The Knight is a feature length, not-for-profit documentary film about the power of storytelling to create positive change in our lives and in the world around us. What makes this story incredibly unique, is that it’s expressed through the lens of one of the most popular stories of all time – THE BATMAN! This documentary follows the most inspiring people who have used the story of Batman to create positive change in their own lives and the lives of others. It’s not a historical tale of the beloved character, but the power of the human spirit to invoke change! The stories captured in this documentary are told by true fans who have showed strength in extreme adversity. View trailer here

“To be a part of this project is an inspiration in itself. Everyone loves the story of Batman, but the power of story telling for social change is very important. After viewing the trailer for this documentary, you will see Batman in a whole new light! It’s literally the most heart warming three and a half minutes you’ll ever see. We truly support Brett Culp with admiration for what he has created – And it’s not even done just yet!” Says Creative Director and owner of 5th Element Events, Aaron Kaufman.

Although this project has been recognized across the web and news portals, it’s not completed. There’s still time for YOU and many others to be a part of the movement! Fully funded online through web apps like Kickstarter, Brett Culp and his team want anyone and everyone who has a love for story telling and Batman to donate and help bring this project to fruition. Follow the movement online using the hashtag #WEareBATMAN and by following the handle @BatmanFilm. Donate on Kickstarter via

WINNER! Star Awards!

On Friday, March 23rd, 2013, the Canadian Event Industry Star Awards took place at the Hyatt Regency in Toronto, ON. Bringing together the entire industry to celebrate Canadian talent and creativity, it was a spectacular evening featuring performances by Chantal Kreviazuk, Susie O’Neil and burlesque mischief wrapped up in a Cabaret theme. It’s only once a year where we get to hang out with our peers and aside from the awards, it’s just a great evening to mingle and network.

When all was said and done, our team at 5th and the Canadian Hospitality Foundation took home hardware for MOST OUTSTANDING EVENT UNDER $100,000 for the Canadian Hospitality Foundation Gala back in October 2012 at the Westin Harbour Castle! We could not have done this without the creative efforts of our partner in crime, Katrin Zeuner from the CHF who continues to be a leading force and inspiration for this event! It is always amazing to be recognized for hard work, dedication and creativity, but to be surrounded by peers who ALL have put their heart and soul into their craft is the real winning spirit of the night! We are so honoured to be a part of such a tight  knit industry.

Thanks to Canadian Special Events for providing everyone a platform to celebrate, educate and cooperate!

5 Nominations!


On the heels of our Special Event Gala Award we received in Chicago about 6 weeks ago, the Canadian “Star Awards” have been announced and I am so excited to be a finalist for the Event Professional of the Year’ award. It has been nearly ten years since I opened 5th Element Events and the last year has been so satisfying in terms of my growth and education in the industry and the expansion of 5th Element Events. I am in this category with three other amazing professionals and am proud to be considered in such great company! I am excited for whoever takes this honourable award home… Good Luck!

Aside from that, 5th Element Events has been nominated for another 4 Star Awards, which we are extremely proud of. They are as follows:

BEST THEME DECOR UNDER $25,000 – Diamonds Are Forever

BEST THEME DECOR $25,000 – $40,000 – Industrial Chic

BEST WEDDING OVER $75,000 – Josh & Courtney’s Wedding

MOST OUTSTANDING EVENT UNDER $100,000 – Canadian Hospitality Association

AND FINALLY (i’m almost done, I promise!), 5th Element Events is up for “Favourite Canadian Event Planner” in this years Readers Choice Awards.  This award would be especially great as it would mean to us that all the work we do for our friends, clients and industry has paid off in a network that we can count on to support us going forward.  I’m hoping I can ask for a quick minute of your time and a vote for us.  I know you must get a number of emails about voting for various things but this would mean a lot to us and you help would be appreciated.

Thanks again for being a part of our journey!
