Event Programming

VGA puts its creative talents and considerable resources to work planning just the right mix of activities, entertainment, vendors and other elements to develop the perfect event plan. From concept development to final reporting, VGA can provide an array of options and recommendations—with respect to the client’s budget—to define and enhance each event with unique and appealing attractions. VGA works closely with each client to design a one-of-a-kind event that fits the theme, occasion or goal of the project from site-specific and seasonal events to commemorative celebrations.

Site and Facilities Planning

VGA staff has considerable experience planning a variety of distinct events with a wide range of logistical and facilities requirements. Everything from tents to portable restrooms and temporary power to full-service stages can be coordinated for a specific site or event. VGA will call on its extensive network of vendors and resources to meet each event’s facility needs without disrupting the event’s carefully crafted atmosphere and ambiance.
