Although many people know Dayla for her outstanding event planning work (especially in the non-profit space) and her leadership with Boston Women in Media and Entertainment, I had the pleasure of working with her from a Communications/PR standpoint during a time of multiple changes following my acquisition of the firm. My concern was that some of clients (especially our older clients of the acquired firm), might be overwhelmed by too many changes at one time and potentially move elsewhere. Dayla was able to talk through my concerns and then articulate an effective communications strategy that was easy for our team to implement. I highly recommend Dayla for her media strategy consulting services for businesses and non-profit organizations of all sizes!

Dayla Arabella has produced several terrific events for my non-profit organization. She brings the same skill and high quality to small events with tight budgets that she brings to larger scale clients. We have been so impressed by her creativity with unusual spaces/circumstances, patience with the inevitable undulations of event and client needs, and clear understanding of the client’s goals. We can’t help but recommend the indefatigable Dayla Arabella very highly for your important events, large and small.

Dayla Arabella has transformed Emmanuel Music’s PR strategy in the five years that she has been working with us. Her knowledge of the Boston media and her incredible contacts have raised Emmanuel Music’s visibility in the very crowded Boston arts / music scene. She has arranged special advertising opportunities with both print and on-line media, and interviews with radio hosts that we would not otherwise have had access, thereby extending our relatively modest advertising budget. Dayla always delivers!”
JazzBoston depends on Dayla’s start-early-and-leave-nothing-to-chance approach to planning for all our special events, from intimate receptions to larger concerts and gatherings, but perhaps her most impressive feat has been organizing and leading our annual VIP tours to the Panama Jazz Festival. Besides assisting with sponsorship packages and promotion, Dayla takes charge of all the travel logistics, in English and Spanish, and co-leads the group. Her enthusiastic, warm personality helps the group to bond and makes her a pleasure to work with.”
For 27 years, our annual Steppin’ Out for Dimock gala, has become one of Boston’s most anticipated events of the year. With over 80 artists taking to our six stages last year, Dayla Arabella once again delivered a line-up of entertainers that exceeded the expectations of our sponsors and engaged a whole new audience for us. As a media strategist and talent buyer, she was able to leverage the roster of talent into local and national media exposure for our event, which helped our fundraising drives as well. Can’t wait to see what she’ll cook up for this year!”

Dayla was the Project Coordinator of NEC’s “Hot & Cool” festivals that took place over 14 days in Boston and New York City. Dayla worked with our team for 18 months in all phases of planning and execution. Her leadership and expertise were invaluable to NEC and integral to the success of the project. We are looking forward to working with her again.”
