Creating Corporate & Personal Events
DunCam Services President & Creative Director Donna Smith has gained the knowledge and expertise in the event management industry, through social interaction and the presence of social prowess, which have taken her events to the next level. From Monaco to the Mayan Riviera, Donna has seen it all, her desire to travel the world has inspired her by various cultures, the behavior of people, and the notion that it’s never too late to follow your dreams.
Never wanting to be that person who said they wish they did it, Donna lived in the moment and launched her career. Having a wide variety of friends who were entrepreneurs, who wanted to venture with others, she was constantly being asked for help to network and bring people together with her creative ideas, a grasp on stress management and a keenness for organization & planning which stemmed from her travels abroad. With much thought and some visualization Donna founded DunCam Services. (A combination of both of her sons’ names)
DunCam's signature event, Pamperfest™, a gathering of unique experiences, was formed and the concept was brought to Donna's ad agency, who in turn introduced and branded Pamperfest™ with the theme of the 1920’s where women had secret gatherings to discuss ambitions and business ideas but knew that society would not accept women entrepreneurs. This concept spoke to Donna’s world but in the modern day form, with entrepreneurs showcasing their exclusive products and merchandise through Pamperfest™ events and in turn exposing their business models and concepts to consumers throughout their region. Beyond being a signature event Pamperfest™ is truly a revolution bridging the gap between high-end exclusive merchandise and its consumers, creating one of the first ever private shopping experiences of this capacity within North America with over 40 unique businesses, an estimated 250 guests on average, and media and press coverage.
A large driving factor in Donna's business venture's stemmed from life experiences, most notably her personal life, which allowed Donna to believe in the person she holds closest to her, appreciating that with reward comes risk, by knowing to believe in something fully by trusting in your instincts can take you from point A to B and ultimately achieve true business success. Knowledge through experience is DunCam's philosophy and having real world experience and knowledge through world travels has lead Donna to not only fully understand her industry but apply her knowledge to everything she does from event and corporate planning, to developing and hosting Pamperfest™ all around the globe.
With our many years of event planning experience, we're with you every step of the way, from the initial planning until the last guest goes home. Whether it's a corporate event or an intimate gathering of family and friends, our focus is on creating a memorable experience for you and all of your guests.
From concept to execution, we look after it all. Not only will we book the venue, we can also arrange travel and transportation, find accommodation, and organize catering. We can even design and co-ordinate any communication pieces you might need, from invitations to programs, posters and banners.

I worked with Donna on the Mississauga Board of Trade - Annual Gala Committee. We worked together to ensure the annual event recognizing outstanding business citizens and volunteers was a success. It was refreshing to have Donna on the team as I admired her obvious commitment to ensuring the event was planned and executed flawlessly. I hope next year she has more of a leadership role and hence even a more positive impact on the outcome.
Donna organized a wonderful event to connect business owners to each other and possibly to individuals. Good use of the venue, created a wonderful atmosphere for networking. I think she thought of every detail. Good job Donna!

Donna Smith is one of the most organized, dedicated, wonderful people I've had the pleasure to work with. I recently attended her Pamperfest event and was simply blown away. Every detail was just right. Everything was planned and organized. This left the guests, vendors, and sponsors able to relax and enjoy the event stress-free. Everyone had an incredible time.
