Ampa Events, a complete source of production services and equipment for entertaining, branding, supporting a message, heightening awareness of a cause, political campaigns and gathering people for purpose and fun.
Design & Management
Stage productions – corporate, worthy cause and conferences – are huge undertakings with hundreds of details to track. For over 20 years, the Ampa team has helped clients tackle all the details. As an event planning, design and production services company, Ampa possesses the technical knowledge, equipment, design skills and planning skills in house. Traditional planners often spend much of their time on product inquiry and gathering information. As a direct source of equipment and technical personnel, this knowledge is innate to our experience. Rather than expending time on “research” of vendors and equipment, our “on the clock time” is focused on creatively achieving goals through visual designs and the flow of the program – Design Services; Concept Development; Technical Services; Time Line Management; Branding; Logistical Interface with Venues and Others; Engineering; Building Code Approvals; Fabrication.
The perfect stage offers strength, confidence and flexibility without overshadowing your presentation. It can also become a design element in itself. Ampa has experience with both approaches — and everything in between. We have the professional equipment and training to give you the support you need.
Successful audio-visual services disappear into the background, allowing your audience to see and hear the action. We supply best-in-class equipment and technical knowledge to serve any venue, from the most intimate settings to convention centers and coliseums. Our lighting options can brighten the largest stages, enhance the look of presenters and wake up the most tired spaces with decorative lighting designs.
Print & Graphics
Ampa’s in-house graphics team designs custom elements and manages large-format printing. With print and digital expertise, our team creates key marketing and creative designs that set the foundation for branding.
We do more than help your event look beautiful. We help you tell stories and bring your message to life. We’ll work with you to create the perfect combinations of colors, shapes, image, and design elements resulting in stunning visual impact.
Example Event: Ground Breaking Ceremony
Larger-than-life shopping bags complete with bursts of confetti highlight new stores coming to town with the groundbreaking of Stony Point Fashion Park. Ampa also provided planning for support systems in remote, freshly cleared woods at the mall site: power, tents, hospitality, VIP reception, lighting and cleanup.
Example Event: Driving Messages
The Department of Defense wanted to “do something different” for the Freedom Award Gala, which honors large employers who support the Reserves & National Guard. The Reagan Center referred Ampa stating “they do different things”. After meeting, asking questions and listening, discovery determined the event revolved around the prestigious award manufactured by Tiffany’s. We suggested an 8ft. sculpture of the award manufactured by our scene shop in addition to desgining an elegant room and stage of sheer drape and lighting.
Inspiration comes from many sources, but always starts with probing questions. For NVTC, a graphic element used in save-the-date e-mails inspired a 3D stage set with dynamic lighting cues resulting in oohs and aahs as guests entered the ballroom at the Tyson’s Ritz Carlton.
