CORPORATE PRODUCTION SERVICES

ABOUT AMPA

Personalized service. Stunning designs. Memorable events. Since its launch in 1985, Ampa has evolved into a comprehensive event design, management and production company.

 

Our energetic, experienced and professional team will support you through the creative process from start to finish. We offer an array of services including design, fabrication, lighting, audio-visual, branding, theme decorating and management. With a creative approach, Ampa develops programs to achieve goals.

INVENTORY & SERVICES

 

During the last 20 years, Ampa has amassed one of the most comprehensive inventories in the Mid-Atlantic. If we don’t have it, we’ll find it at one of the dozens of industry shows we attend yearly -- or build it from scratch.

 

With more than 25,000 square feet of inventory, an in-house design team, innovative scene shop and experienced artisans, our team gets the job done -- and done right. Working directly with the source of inventory and services has many benefits including better communications for a more effective translation of desired goals into reality.

EVENT MANAGEMENT

When working with Ampa, you’ll have the support of a team with decades of training and experience. A successful event requires teamwork, precise execution and a focus on details.

 

To get there, we work to understand your goals, asking the questions that inspire creative solutions. We offer management, guidance and consulting to turn your vision into reality.
