Event Production & Management
You only get one shot with a live event. It must be right the first time. No mistakes. No issues.
Anything less than 100% is obvious to all, and a few seconds on stage can feel like a lifetime if something goes wrong. Audiences have high expectations. Their lives are filled with quality productions that they experience every single day.
We take our production responsibilities very seriously; our production managers work closely with our directors, producers, writers and creatives as well as internal client teams and preferred partners that we know and trust.
With 30+ years of technical production experience, EMP has a strong pedigree of producing live and hybrid events – conferences, exhibitions, launches, gala evenings. It all adds up to one thing: you can trust us to deliver. As live events go, there aren’t many situations we haven’t come across during this time. We’re never complacent and work tirelessly to support our projects with the best productions we can – always on the lookout for new techniques, creative ideas and fresh thinking.
EMP balances innovation and cost to deliver great value for our clients. Our production managers ensure the whole show runs as planned, managing every on-site aspect.

EMP can help your third-party (3P) events come to life. For some clients, we manage every aspect of their 3P events and for others, we provide more targeted support as extension of their internal team. Our team has decades of hands-on experience managing trade show activations at events of all sizes from RSA and CES to KubeCon and many others. Our expertise runs the gamut from brainstorming creative activation strategies to full-service project management, and every aspect of on-site management.
Need to be at SXSW next year? Creating a partner zone at a major tech event? EMP helps clients create, manage and execute activations at outdoor events of all kinds and sizes. One all-time favorite of ours is the Data Therapy Dog Park EMP created for one client outside Moscone during VMworld. Not only did the activation help their brand shine in a crowded marketplace and blow past their event goals; it brought genuine smiles to the faces of attendees and help clear a local shelter. We call that a win for everyone.
