AMPA helped us put on a high school Prom for 800 students last weekend. From the time we decided on a theme until after the decorations were removed, the staff was dedicated to making our event the best! We'll be using them for many Homecoming dances and Proms to come!

I have had the good fortune to work with AMPA on a variety of events, from elegant charity galas to professional convention-style events. For each, AMPA employees went above and beyond, were incredible problem-solvers for complex issues, and truly could have hung the moon. Couldn't recommend them more highly.

AMPA is absolutely amazing. I worked with Ted to throw the American University Washington College of Law's annual Barrister's Ball. AMPA did all of our lighting and sound and the Andrew Mellon Auditorium. I gave Ted a theme to work with and the lighting was stunning. AMPA was extremely professional arriving on time and completing the lighting and sound well before our event began. I look forward to working with AMPA again next year!

AMPA recently provided lighting and decor for a fundraiser/cocktail party at a private residence for Massey Cancer. I can't say enough good things about Ted and the team. Our expectations were far exceeded, but even more importantly, AMPA was wonderful to work with. Each touch point with AMPA was helpful and reassuring. Event planning can be very stressful, and I appreciated the calm and capable assistance of AMPA. I highly recommend them.

AMPA events put on an excellent James Bond themed gala and delivered on everything. The staff was great to work with and decorations were right on the money. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

I manage a military veteran hiring program at Hilton Worldwide and used AMPA to help us host a celebration event at our Global Headquarters in McLean, VA. I had multiple prep calls with Kammy, shared my ideas and pictures of what we wanted. She was so easy to work with and was very understand of my budget. The team that came out to do the set up and break down was very friendly, professional and took pride in their work. The event turned out EXACTLY as we had envisioned. I am a bit of a perfectionist, especially when I have something in my head that I want a certain way and I could not have asked for anything more! I would definitely recommend AMPA Events!

A Big Thanks to Ted and the Ampa Team for a great event. The details of the Carnival Theme decor with black and white stripes tents and side show banners created a fun and family friendly environment for our Family Night. Everyone played the arcade games and enjoyed each others company.

Ampa has a great staff, accommodating, flexible and dependable. We have worked with Ampa for 3 years now. They do a phenomenal job!

The reason we came back year after year is because you have a great staff. You bend over backwards to make us happy.

Ted Rubis and his AMPA team made this year's Richmond Children's Hospital Ball fabulous. From their vast amount of inventory to the extremely helpful and dedicated staff...we could have not asked for a better partner to help create and execute the event. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.

I have worked with Ampa Events for several years. Ampa has provided lighting for our scholarship dance and their work has made the event look fabulous. Ted and the team at Ampa are great to work with. They are easy going, friendly and accommodating. There equipment is great and the lighting designs they execute with the larger fixtures are breathtaking. We have had Stars on the walls and a design that made the room look like fall. It's incredible what they can do with their theatre background. If you need a good lighting company, I highly recommend Ampa. Thank you Ampa Events, Ted, Jordan, Leslie, Kammy and the rest of you, for a job well done.

I have been in the event industry since 1984, the last 2 years with Ampa Events. It has been a rewarding experience to work for a company that was built from scratch 20 years ago and whose focus is always on getting the job done with the perfection and professionalism that sets the company a part. I hope that people will go to the website and see for themselves what has made Ampa the successful event company that it is today.

A big thanks to you for your help in making the event at the Former Residence of the Spanish Ambassadors very special. The Glowing Truss, Farm Tables, LED s in the Courtyard and Rope lights outside looked great! The embassy staff were impressed that with a few strategically placed light fixtures, some contemporary furniture and a large projection of art images the space could get transformed into a cool night club ambiance.
It was a pleasure to work with a single vendor that could provide all the key components for the event--lighting, AV, tech support and furniture.... that is the key to AMPA's unique brand and future. Chase was a real pleasure to work with. We look forward to working together with you on other events.

We recently used AMPA events for our local Italian Festival and couldn't have been more impressed. The service was seamless, polite, efficient and knowledgeable. We worked with Chase on some last minute international items that were a huge hit at the festival. Enjoyed the service he provided and plan to use AMPA at many other events in the future. Thanks for everything!

Ampa Events has shown itself to be the ideal supporter for us in the party and events business. We know we can count on their extensive inventory of special and unique furniture for every sort of affair. Especially valuable is their experience, knowledgeable field staff, and the easy access we have to their personnel.

Three cheers to Ampa Events. We were last minute request to Ampa Events. No one would have guessed that from how well the evening turned out. They took my vision and made it come alive in a way I never would have imagined. The accolades I heard from our attendees and sponsors are still buzzing in my head. Thank you for making us look so good.
