News Release

LANHAM, MD — Hargrove, a world-class experience production company, was subcontracted by Rainmakers Strategic Solutions LLC (Rainmakers) to provide event production services for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s first national forum on the COVID-19 vaccine. Rainmakers, a certified 8(a), economically disadvantaged woman-owned small consulting firm was awarded the overall contract to produce and promote the event.

The forum was a three-day, virtual, national event in support of the Biden-Harris administration’s national vaccine strategy for COVID-19 response and pandemic preparedness. In addition to providing our platform solution to power the event, Chime Live, Hargrove provided full event experience production services for the virtual forum. Hargrove, working in concert with the CDC, The White House, and Rainmakers, was responsible for all production deliverables and services, including digital strategy and creative content; internal and external speaker coordination, and management of the pre-event and live production components of the forum.

For the first time, this event brought together federal, state and local governments; corporations; healthcare workers; vaccine experts, non-profits; unions, faith-based organizations and tribal communities to discuss their roles in distributing the vaccines and positively impacting their respective communities.

“The need to engage and connect all with a vested role in vaccine distribution is undeniably critical. It’s both incredibly humbling and satisfying that the full force of our company capabilities aided in this event,” said Tara Higgins, president of Hargrove. “We are proud of the solutions we provided and honored by the trust instilled in us to produce this event for the Administration in their efforts to connect and advance promising practices and practical strategies for the COVID-19 vaccine.”
