About Us

Our passion for event planning, production, and destination management services derives from the qualities of our founder and president, Diane Hamilton. Her determination, focus, and fortitude are the qualities that won her a coveted “Top 10” ranking in the demanding sport of the Triathlon. Those same qualities provided the foundation from which Diane built her own “soft adventure” company, Pathfinder Tours.

In the early 1990’s, Pathfinder Tours provided leisure and corporate groups with bicycling and hiking tour experiences throughout Santa Barbara wine country, evolving in 1995 into a full-service destination management company (DMC): Business Executives Travel Association, Inc. – BETA, for short.

As BETA grew and delivered exceptional Santa Barbara corporate and incentive events for dozens of Fortune 500 clients, we were asked by those same companies to provide full-service site selection, event planning, production, and destination management services across the globe.

This led to a 2005 re-branding to become Relevé Unlimited, the ultimate in one-stop event planning and production services.

Relevé is the French ballet term for “on your toes” and “reach higher” – and exemplifies the elevated sense of excitement, and dedication to excellence, that the entire Relevé Unlimited team embrace.
