Who We Are

At TEK, we help our clients communicate.

Event production is fun. We produce highly effective and efficient meetings with maximum customer service and minimal stress. We clearly deliver our clients’ messages while teaming with them to achieve a shared goal—success.

The messages may change, but the necessity to share ideas remains constant.

We have found that our clients plan events for three main reasons:

Inspiration

For the corporate chairman delivering words of guidance and encouragement to employees...

Celebration

For the loyal staff who have earned accolades and the reward of a celebratory gala…

Education

For the members of an engaged workforce attending classes to maintain and update skills…

Testimonials

What our clients say.

By far, you and your team have been one of the best to work with! I hope to work with you all again as well.

I also wanted to thank you for solving all the little things throughout the day of set-up. It would have taken me all day to figure out that CD issue and you were able to solve it for me with a burned disc in just 20 mins! Those are the little things that TEK does for me that makes it almost impossible to run an event without you and your team.

Just wanted to send a note thanking you for all your efforts last week. The program ran flawlessly and I know the kids had a great time. You all were a pleasure to be on site with and I really look forward to working with you again in the future! Thanks for all your hard work.
