special events

We mange national events. Starting with our initial consultation we work together with our clients during the planning phase to review the project budget, event concepts, event location, staff requirements, catering, special live entertainment requests and production & design timelines.


From the sublime to the spectacular, our entertainment division delivers the most sought-after names in the world of music, broadcast, movies, politics, business, and the arts. Our inhouse powerbrokers and entertainment agents provide unapparelled service and global outreach for everything from specialty acts to A-List headliners, and everything in-between.

tours & activities

As industry insiders we are obsessed with finding the best things to do in our home cities and states: we know our markets. From the Pacific Coast to the Southwest Desert to the Atlantic Ocean, from traditional tours to once-in-a-lifetime experiences, we have something for every client. With Connextions™ you receive the royal treatment including behind-the-scenes access, private viewings, VIP tours – with no lines and no crowds!

Our network works with the nation’s largest fleet companies to provide volume pricing and VIP services without the need to source competitors.
