Washington, DC, January 3, 2013 – Hargrove has been selected as the official general services contractor for the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Committee. Hargrove will manage an extensive variety of responsibilities for the inaugural balls including design, fabrication and production as well as management of all technical services (lighting, sound and video). The company will also provide floats for the inaugural parade and the large volume of signage related to the inaugural activities.

“We’re honored and excited to continue Hargrove’s tradition of service to presidential inaugural events. Preparations for the inaugural takes place in a very short time frame and are extremely high-profile.
