About Us

We are a diverse and fun-loving group of event junkies committed to securing the best talent and resources to ensure successful activations. Our goal is to make our clients feel good throughout the recruitment process and look good in the field.

Our proprietary software with extensive search criteria allows us to select the best staff for the specific needs of each event. Staff profiles include bios, resumes, photos and the event industry’s only rating system, which features an overall rating along with performance within specific event categories.

All programs are serviced by an experienced Account Team. And since we all know how unpredictable the event industry can be, our 24/7 emergency hotline ensures you have support around the clock for both existing programs and new requests.
