  • Inspire Productions is great! I've used Inspire to coordinate our company's annual picnic two years in a row and both events were a smashing success. Jud and his team take the stress and guesswork out of everything, from the pre-planning to the coordination on the day of the event. Thanks to them, I've been able to be actually be a guest at the picnics instead of running around all day! The vendors they choose for catering, team games and entertainment are just fantastic. Best of all, Inspire makes the whole thing seem effortless so that after the picnic, everyone in my company was commenting on what a great job I did on the event!

  • We contracted Inspire Productions to host our employee summer picnic and they really knocked it out of the park. Inspire put on a fun picnic with great team building activities for the adults and fun activities for the children! They also made sure that the catered food was up our high standards being that we are a luxury hotel here in The Bay Area.  I would use Inspire again and recommend that companies use them to host their employee events.

  • Thank you for the amazing event your team pulled together for us, in what I am sure was record time.  You graciously helped me through every step of the planning process.  You rolled with the increasing head count punches.  You had a fabulous team on the ground all day to make our event a TRUE JOY!
