We live in a connected world – today’s fast-paced economy requires mutually beneficial partnerships to leverage expertise, experience and resources to optimize business success. With the goal of making Celebrity Fan Fest the most exciting 3-day interactive pop-culture fan festival, The PM Group, as well as all of our sister agencies and organizations, worked together to support PMX Events through advertising, customer service, media outreach, and event coordination. This required harnessing our contacts, best practices, developing a strategy and plan, and most importantly, strong and open communication.  By pulling together all of our resources and collaborating as a team, this event gave us the opportunity to connect and execute an event of large magnitude and reach.

These volunteers represented all aspects of customer experience from admission, security, food service, photo-ops and autographs, plus much more.
