Our Clients

What We do

Venue Sourcing & Management

We know how important it is to select the best venue for an event. Let us manage the process for you by going on venue tours, evaluating which venue is the best fit and ultimately handling all contract negotiations and communication.

Event Management

A great event starts with great management, and because we own and operate our own, we know what it takes to see an event through to execution. We are experienced in every type of event; everything from fundraisers to festivals. There is no event too big or small!


Having trouble navigating the vague world of marketing? You're not alone. After getting to know your event or brand, we will help you establish goals and objectives that will guide us through the creation of a comprehensive marketing plan, including anything from traditional media outlets to the newest trends in digital media.

Ticketing / Registration

The management of ticket sales and/or registration for any event can be time consuming and daunting. Through our experience and the relationships we’ve made with some of the top ticketing and registration sites, we have established best practices for setting up pricing structures, determining refund policies and navigating financials.

Social Media Management

Our team knows how important social media is when talking about promoting a brand and/or event. We also know that not everyone is a social media guru. That’s where we come in. Our specialists are educated on the latest trends and are here to walk you through the best plan of action for setting up new accounts, or reviving old accounts. Whether you want a full social takeover with a detailed strategic plan or just some suggestions on how to leverage your current followers, we’ve got you covered.

Advertising & Media Buys

Does your budget allow for traditional out of home and/or digital advertising opportunities? Let us help negotiate rates through our media partners to help determine what makes the most sense for your brand or event. Don’t worry, we won’t stop there – we will help build out a full advertising and media buy schedule to take another task off of your plate.

Budget Management

Some of us actually enjoy creating and tracking budgets, so let us become your event’s money manager! Not only will we work with you up front to determine the best allocation of funds, but we will stay with you every step of the way to make sure you and your event stay on track.

Public Relations

Writing press releases, scheduling interviews and establishing promotional pitches is no easy task, but our team is up for the challenge. Whether you need help with connecting to local media outlets or designing a full-fledged promotional plan, we’re here for you.

Creative Services

With offered services including photography, videography, logo development, graphic design and video editing, it’s safe to say we can handle any of your creative needs. Our creative team is one of the best in the biz and is constantly developing new techniques to keep up with the latest trends.
