Planning

The first step in planning a great event is to listen.  We listen to our clients, ask questions and seek to fully understand their goals first.  With a solid understanding, we can then make great suggestions to achieve those goals.

Site Selections

Each event creates specific goals and challenges which may predicate a certain type of site.  Over 20 years, we have successfully produced events happening in standard and unique locations, from hanging chandeliers in a barn to accenting a castle with lighting.  Our extensive technical knowledge, allows Ampa to open up new and exciting possibilities for clients.

Renderings

Ampa has 2 to 3 graphics artists working on a regular basis.  Some projects, due to their size and complexity, may require renderings, others may not.  At Ampa, we'd prefer to send photos of actual events which will leave nothing to guess work, but, as needed, we are happy to provide this service.

Site Inspections

Site inspections are most effective when used as a final check to make sure everything you want to install at the site can be accomplished.  The first step is to Design the Production for the space and then execute a Technical Site Inspection.  With a TSI you work with the approved design to assist in reviewing, discussing and confirming the installation and placement of items.

Floor Plans

These are great to see how all elements relate to each other, in scale on the floor of the event site.  Ampa puts together general floor plans, routinely after a contract is signed and during the month of the event.  These can also be ordered for a fee prior to the signing of a contract.

 

 

Entertainment

From Dueling Pianos to Giant Video DJ Packages or Impersonators, Ampa has been making suggestions and book acts for clients as a normal course of what we do.

 

Trade Show Services

Complete services, including Drayage and show managements, are available.

 

Design Services

We design props, scenery, drapes, stage sets, theme decor and a bunch of other fun stuff.  Hire us to design a production.  You can take the design and have anyone execute it, or we are happy to execute it for you.

Design Services

 

Special Events 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 information.  As a direct source of equipment and technical personnel, we already have this information and do not need to expend time on "research."  Planning time with Ampa is well spent on creating a final and complete order to fulfill the dream and specifics that require acute attention.  Design and Production Services applies to stage production, corporate events and is equally effective when applied to Weddings and social events.

 

 

 

Scene Shop Fabrication

 

Our scene shop and artisans can design and build anything. Look at the sweep wing eagle we carved for the defense department.  Look at the Hitchcock Bates Motel.

Ampa Advantage

 

We’ve been around since 1994. We have amassed knowledge experience and gear.

 

Choice

 

With huge in-stock inventories of equipment and a well trained team of theater, event, and creative professionals, Ampa’s largest advantage is “choice”. Ampa offers many options, levels of service, and products with our custom in-house scene shop staffed with very talented artisans. We can build any desired prop, stage set or special decorative item. In over 20 years of business, we possess numerous building techniques and abilities with various materials. Why is this important?  It gives us the ability to accomplish just about anything at your budget.

Flexibility

 

Because we have such a vast knowledge in materials & techniques and we own huge inventories of event gear, Ampa can be very flexible.

 

We believe in giving our clients total control of their order if desired. Choose only the products & services desired as needed.

Product Information - It’s Free!

 

Traditional Planners spend a good amount of time merely gathering product information & prices. At Ampa, we not only have the information, we have the products too.  Ampa has the knowledge base, thus allowing us to skip over time consuming gathering of information. We start at the design phase & then move directly to technical site inspections and wrap up a complete approach to your event expediently.
