ince Joe Cornell
Entertainment has been in
business, its principals have
always guided clients in their event
planning. So it was a natural evolution
10 years ago that owners Steve Jasgur
and Rebecca Schlussel took their
event-planning expertise and made
it bigger — in the form of a day of
entertainment-industry vendors gath-
ered under the Joe Cornell umbrella
so local families could find easy, one-
stop-shopping for their upcoming
celebrations.
The first Expo occurred during
the infamous August 2002 blackout,
without air-conditioning or adequate
lighting, but vendors and patrons still
turned out. That year, Schlussel says
there were 40 vendors and 150 families
at the humid Doubletree Novi.
This year's Expo, set for Sunday,
Sept. 23, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the
Jewish Community Center in West
Bloomfield, is expected to attract
nearly 400 patrons and 60 vendors to
get ideas and books to help plan their
celebrations.
"We created the Expo because our
local event industry partners wanted
to better reach our community:' says
Schlussel. "Joe Cornell has always
had great relationships with other
entertainment industry vendors and
the Jewish community, so we figured
let's bring everyone together for wide
mutual benefit."
The Expo has grown every year
— in number of vendors, number of

patrons and value-added. Now, the
event, which is sponsored by the IN
and Patch.com, packs the lobby and
social hall at the JCC, and Joe Cornell
publishes a bona fide magazine, Plan
It!, twice yearly, full of creative ideas
and trends for all sorts of celebrations.
Twice a year, Jasgur and Schlussel
invite industry vendors to network and
learn how to market, advertise and
better promote their businesses, free-
of-charge. They also have expanded
their business to corporate clients and
schools.
"Joe Cornell has been a hallmark of
the Southeast Michigan entertainment
industry since the 1950s,” says Jasgur,
who with his sister (Schlussel) bought
the business in the early 1990s from
the original Joe Cornell.
"Our company and our clients are
