Event Production

Events, from weddings to trade shows, it’s all theater. We can bring your ideas to life.

Production Management

 You have everything ready, you just need someone to get it there.

Consultation

You had no idea how much is involved. What steps are you missing?

EVENT PRODUCTION

What makes a great production? It is live, it is collaborative, it is a visual and auditory experience, it is a learning experience, it is a social experience, it can be a transformative experience. Whether an event, a conference, a show… it is theater. 

PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT

Production management takes an assortment of skills, foremost is organization and attention to details. Good management entails the ability to communicate with all sorts of people involved in the project, to provide leadership and create a team. A good production manager is adept at anticipating situations and able to solve problems as they happen quickly and efficiently.

CONSULTATION

Perhaps the best attribute that one can have when planning an event is experience. From concept to staging, considerations include everything from budgets to catering, transportation to security, knowing how to interact with venue management and often, unions. Putting together a large event necessitates a multitude of considerations.

About Me

Like many young people, I came to New York City from the Midwest dreaming of an acting career. Between theatrical and the occasional film roles, I worked part time for one of the leading event companies in the city, quickly becoming the on site manager. At the same time I became manager of a small theater company, the two experiences eventually leading to my establishing my own producing company “Julie & Friends”. Producing both theater and events, I had a list of “friends” (performers, musicians, designers, builders, etc.) who helped turn vision into reality. At some point, I was contracted to create the “Sports and Fitness Summit” at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (the largest trade show in the U.S.) From nothing, we grew the summit into one of the largest and well attended of the entire show. That success led us to take on as producers the “Wearable Tech Summit” as wearable technology quickly exploded onto the scene. Not only did we produce the summit, but we introduced a “Wearable Tech Fashion Show” which we produced not only in Las Vegas, but New York and Shanghai as well.
