Our mission at SRES is to produce quality events that generate business for all participants and foster community. Each member of the SRES team knows and understands the level of quality that is expected when working on any of  our events. We genuinely have one of the most qualified teams in the business.

SRES is also absolutely flexible in the way we work. If you have preferred outside suppliers/vendors and they are  competitive with our suppliers, we are completely willing to work with them. This also applies to staffing. If you have people that you know and trust and have worked with in the past, we would be willing to have them work at the events. We prefer to give local suppliers the first right to work on the events and keep the business in the community.

We understand how much time and energy it takes to produce a quality festival and we are always willing to do  whatever it takes to make the event happen. When we take on a new project, we devote huge blocks of time to  researching all the elements that are involved.

SRES is committed to working together with our clients to make the events unique, high quality and profitable.

We will do everything we can to make the event a huge success for everyone involved.

Please contact us if you are interested in working with Steven Restivo Event Services, LLC for your next big event.
