OUR STORY

We do whatever it takes to ensure your success

Combining creative, human-centered design with technology, fabrication, and production expertise, Hargrove globally delivers focused event experiences and solutions that have the power to connect, engage, and transform audiences.

Founded as a retail-display company in the 1940s, Hargrove expanded to become a world-class experience production company. We are now a leading producer of high-profile, complex, and simply extraordinary B2B and B2C events for some of the most recognized organizations.

Located just 10 miles from Washington, DC, our campus includes a 365,000 square-foot production facility that houses a state-of-the-art creative studio, high-capacity graphics capabilities, and multiple fabrication shops. A talented team of designers, producers, craftsmen, technicians, engineers, and client experience executives and managers work under one roof to seamlessly execute our clients’ projects and bring their vision to life.

In early 2018, we proudly joined the PSAV family of brands, now known as Encore. In addition to our expertise in live, virtual and hybrid event production, we now also offer leading technology solutions with unparalleled reach and value for our partners.

We are different by design. With multi-disciplinary expertise, we turn physical presence into emotional engagement through live and virtual events that we design and deliver.
