Bettina Hahn Osborne

Bettina Hahn Osborne is the owner and designer of Bettina Hahn Events, a full service design studio creating stylized boutique events that are elegant, fun, and engaging.  

After earning her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from the acclaimed Parson's School of Design in New York City, Bettina worked as a head fashion designer for several top Fortune 500 companies in the fashion industry.  She has a natural eye for design, style, and trends that were refined in the years she spent planning fashion shows as well as coordinating VIP events for the world renowned Carnegie Hall.  Through those experiences she found her style and passion for event planning.  Mixing the two worlds was a natural evolution.  After twelve years living in New York City, she has returned to her hometown of San Diego and built her own event planning company.

Bettina designs and produces innovative events for private, corporate and non profits clients.  She listens to her clients and develops original concepts that are on trend and ahead of the times, while still meeting their individual budget and financial goals.  She only works with high quality vendors and is dedicated to delivering one-of-a-kind events that are remembered and admired.

In 2013 Bettina was honored to be nominated for San Diego Magazine’s, “Women Who Move the City."  Bettina’s innovative and successful events have been featured in San Diego Magazine, Ranch & Coast, UT San Diego, San Diego Business Journal, Riviera/Modern Luxury Magazine, Fine Magazine, and Giving Back Magazine.

2013 San Diego Magazine Nominee "Women Who Move San Diego"


Michelle Pius

Director of Major Gifts at Fresh Start Surgical Gifts

"I recently held a major concert/gala/fundraiser on the USS Midway in San Diego. Bettina designed and art-directed all the lighting and decor. As a budget conscious non-profit we were speechless when we saw the finished product. From the registration area to the tabletops and centerpieces to food stations to the lighting of the stage and ship, everything was incredible.

Not one detail was overlooked. 

Bettina was on site for load-in and set-up and personally stood at every table to make sure all guests would have a perfect view of the stage. 

I will look no further than Bettina Hahn Osborne for my next event!"

Scotty Wagner

CEO at Synerchi

"Bettina is nothing short of an amazing event designer with an extraordinary aptitude for bringing together the most talented event team and leading them through a detailed development stage that blossoms in to fluid planning and flawless execution. Any event coordinator can carry a clipboard and point . . . Bettina's leadership speaks in harmonic tones of unlimited possibilities just as her refined style ensures that the clients vision is delivered with the utmost confidence, punctual to the minute and ultimately in sync with reality (such as budgets, location limitations, etc) 

I have personally catered over 4,000 events in my lifetime and I am honored to say that Bettina Hahn Osborne is one of the top three event designers in Southern California. Any company or person can rest at easy with Bettina at the helm and know that their voices will be heard, their expectations will be met and their event will be snapshot perfect from the beginning to the end!"
