University of South Dakota Foundation

How do you honor the legacy + long-lasting impact of one of the University of South Dakota's most influential presidents? A 68 foot LED video wall should do the trick, right? It most certainly did! What a privilege is was to showcase the legacy + celebrate the retirement of President James Abbott. The event featured a large video wall in the form of the iconic USD building, Old Main as well as signature cocktails + hors d'oeuvres + a celebration with many notable South Dakotans. 

They live up to the hype. They possess a level of excellence in service from the first phone call to the event wrap-up meeting. Addie has a 5* standard for her company, + her team models it in practice. I’d recommend The Event Company to anyone, without hesitation.

I had the privilege of working with The Event Company at Crossroads Summit. The Event Company was instrumental in guiding our team through the planning process. I cannot recommend them enough. They were incredible. They took our concepts + ideas, brought them to life + took them to the next level. They helped us design an amazing experience for all of our attendees. The Event Company thought of every detail, worked with vendors, helped with theme development, negotiated pricing, helped with the cadence of the day + kept everything running smoothly. If you want to transform an event into an experience, hire the experts at The Event Company.

I have the honor of working at hundreds of private events per year + it’s always an absolute privilege to work with the amazing team at The Event Company. I can honestly say they are the most organized, detailed + caring planner I have ever worked with. It may be selfish, but our team LOVES working with them because it makes our lives so much easier…they always have everything planned for us down to the minute. They do an incredible job of unifying all vendors to ensure the client always has an outstanding event.

My team + I have had the privilege of working with Addie + The Event Company on USD's annual Calling All Coyotes auction for the last three years + hopefully, many more to come! From the second you connect with Addie + her team, you know something great is about to happen. The team is incredibly committed to staying current with event fundraising + social media trends which has made the biggest impact in our event. They are truly a team of event magicians who are dedicated to creating the best event possible for all parties involved. Cheers to you for another amazing event + of course, lots of laughs along the way!
