Craig Smith, President
Craig Smith left a successful law practice in San Francisco to follow his dream – the dream of creating extraordinary travel experiences for the mind, body & spirit with and for like-minded friends. Through conversations with some of these friends, and a shared vision of crafting unique and inspiring experiences, Source Events was born in 2001. Over the past 19 years, Source Events has become a recognized leader in luxury gay travel, producing all-gay cruises and adventures around the world.
Craig has assembled a team of professionals with expertise in every facet of travel and event production. He brings to Source Events his years of experience as Director of Events for the Winter Party Festival and as an elected public official. Under Craig’s leadership, Source Events has continued to make a difference in the community by supporting LGBT organizations such as the National LGBTQ Task Force, Pridelines, StandUp Foundation, Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. In 2014, Craig was honored with the Morgan Stanley Business Person of the Year Award by the Miami Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.
