Our History

For nearly 30 years, Ted Rubis has played a role in life’s most poignant moments. The first dance between a newlywed couple. Friends reuniting to share decades-old memories. A political hopeful launching a career. Colleagues uniting toward a shared mission. Volunteers raising money for a cause dear to their hearts. Through it all, Ampa has relied on great service as a founding principle: working with you, listening for needs and then delivering solutions to meet them.

Ted Rubis launched Ampa in 1985 as an entertainment-booking agency, building on his experiences with special events and his affinity for bringing people together. Responding to demand, Ampa expanded its services becoming a full service event producer.

By the 1990s the company offered complete designs including construction of stage sets, custom props and scenery, was invested in a warehouse full of lighting, rigging and audiovisual effects and developed a staggering inventory of theme decor. More importantly, we built a team… a team of creative theater professionals and artisans who know how to pull all the parts together, at any budget, to serve client’s needs. Ampa can dazzle a large audience, bring crowds to their feet or discreetly fade into the background for those special moments…

As a Virginia-based company, Ampa serves local, regional, and national clients. Hire Ampa and you are hiring a direct source of equipment, technical, and design services – a masterful company to orchestrate a total solutions or serve a specific need. Let us help you start celebrating, commemorating, and bringing people together.

Why is the amphitheater
in your logo?

In ancient Greece, the Amphitheater was much more than performances of comedy and tragedy. Yes, it was a place for entertainment but also a center for the exchange of ideas, expression of philosophies from the greatest minds, a place for orators and politics. In a like manner, Ampa Events creates environments to interact, spread information, achieve business goals, teach, campaign, celebrate life special moments and have fun!
