Valerie Bihet is an accomplished marketing and special events professional with more than 12 years of experience. Working for companies such as Club Med, Disneyland Paris and Alliance Prestige Group, she was well prepared when she founded Valbihcom in 2004. Bihet has led her agency into what has been regarded as one of the most revolutionary and internationally acclaimed event planning and destination management firms in the country.
Along with her unparalleled charm, ingenious style, and flair for understanding each of her clients’ needs, Bihet produces meticulously planned event strategies and cost-effective solutions. As Vibe Director, she leads her diverse team through hands-on guidance, artistic vision, multicultural panache, and most importantly, commitment to excellence. Working closely with a strong list of top-notch vendors, Bihet and her team have produced more than 40 successful events this year and continue to meet — and surpass—clients’ expectations.
With its name change, The VIBE Agency has been responsible for executing groundbreaking events and public relations initiatives in North America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean. Bihet and her team have created memorable occasions for clients such as Dior, L’Oreal, Alston, Merck, Guerlain, Kenzo, BMI Records and former President Jimmy Carter. From the most elaborate social affair to an exclusive, intimate dinner for top executives, Bihet brings her “je ne sais quoi” style to each of her signature events.
Earlier in her career, Bihet directed the communications and special events department for Club Med North America, where all communications objectives were surpassed. Her creative, results-oriented public relations and events campaigns landed her an acknowledgment in Travel Agent Magazine as a “high-rising hotelier.” Prior to joining Club Med, Bihet managed special events for Disneyland Paris, France, where she notably conceptualized multiple events for Disneyland’s 5th Anniversary. She also managed public relations with the Alliance Prestige Group in France.
Born in Paris, France, Bihet has resided in Miami, Fla. for six years and is a member of SFMPI (South Florida Chapter, Meeting Professionals International). She received several degrees in Management from La Sorbonne in Paris. Bihet is passionate about travel and entertainment but feels right at home when organizing one of her signature events.
