With every event we produce, we set the bar higher. Over the years we have produced complex events that involved secret service for heads of state, lighting, audio and visual for national groups along with events for tens to tens of thousands. We stay on the leading edge of trend and design so our early adopter clients continue to love our work. We create custom-designed unique pieces for our clients such as backdrops, chandeliers, bars, tables and sculptural pieces to enhance events. For over 15 years we have dazzled clients with technical know-how, creative insights, a commitment to safety, and impeccable planning.

Culture -  Our culture starts with teamwork that creates a quality, happy environment that translates to our clients. At Shumaker, we strive to provide our team members with a balanced life, financial security, education and career advancement while promoting a culture of integrity and respect with open and honest communication in the workplace. We also value giving back to our community and provide staff with paid-time-off so they can volunteer in the community.

Accountability - Fiscal responsibility is important to us at Shumaker and we aim to be transparent in how we set and manage our client’s budgets. Shumaker partners with community businesses and organizations to provide event expertise and support and strive to be an environmentally, socially and ethically responsible business. We use the best products available and execute jobs to the highest standards.
