Here’s what people have said about us.

I've used Boom Goes the Drum for four different events: An awards show (The Hashtag Awards), four conferences (SocialWest) and a smaller networking event, and I'm always amazed at how they can handle anything and everything. Better yet, they do it with ease and grace. I like to think I'm pretty easy to work with, but as the event gets closer and closer, I definitely panic a bit and start going a bit crazy. But nothing that Boom hasn't been able to handle. I recommend them to everyone. Very worthy of a five-star review!

Mike Morrison, Owner: Mike's Bloggity Blog and SocialWest

I hire Boom Goes the Drum whenever I need to elevate an event. Derek and his team are masters of production and planning, but more than that, they understand storytelling, vibe and theatricality. Proud to see that some of the events we've been able to create together have gone on to be included in their portfolio and win awards! They deserve ALL the praise. No ego. All fun. Constant collaboration. I HIGHLY recommend working the Boom Goes The Drum team.

Alex Kingcott, President: Shareworthy Content Lab

The team at Boom are some of top event professionals in the biz. From start to finish, they were a pleasure to work with, stayed within budget and could handle changes on the fly. These guys really take event management to the next level. Creative ideas, impeccable service and value for money spent.

Boom Goes the Drum is one of those rare companies that really understands how to be the best. They don't just put exceptional events together, they think about the entire guest experience from before the event even starts, to well after it's over. They have impeccable taste, perfect attention to detail, and a passionate creative team who clearly love their jobs and are a blast to work with. I recommend Boom Goes the Drum to every person I know planning an event.

Scott Westby, Strategic Film & Video Director: Producer at FullSwing Productions

The team at Boom are incredible to work with. They are calm, smart, focused and natural big-picture thinkers. What's even better is they also care about all the little things that ladder up to a great idea AND they are experts at executing those little things. Their events are always incredibly impactful and they are genuinely nice to work with.

I'd give them six stars if I could. You won't meet a team that is kinder, smarter, or more fun to work with. This group is always on point, and they have some of the coolest office space in the city.

I always know when I'm at an event that is put together by Derek and his team. Each event is unique in its own way, but is consistent with flawless execution. Boom Goes the Drum not only makes the client feel at ease every step of the planning and execution process, but they are able to elevate the overall guest experience by adding a level of personal and professional charm.

Lana Rogers, President: Lana Rogers PR

We feel very fortunate at Beakerhead to work with Boom Goes the Drum year after year. We trust them with some of our biggest projects and they deliver! The fantastic attitude, attention to detail, professionalism, and grace under pressure -- we see them as a true partner in bringing to life this lovable beast called Beakerhead.

Mary Anne Moser, Co-Founder: Beakerhead

Boom Goes the Drum creates truly unforgettable experiences for their clients and guests alike. Derek and his team are incredibly professional, personable and impossible to forget. Not only does Boom provide detailed, innovative work but they also go the extra mile with client care and communication. On a few occasions Derek has provided industry insight to me personally without requiring anything in return, which is quite telling of his character as a business owner and industry team-player. Whenever I hear that Boom is putting on an event, I make sure I can make it!
