Your target customer is continually bombarded by television, print, radio and digital advertisements. Skillfully designed and executed events can help you stand out. No ad can compare to putting your product in the hands of your target customers and providing them an opportunity to interact with your team members. Corporate events positively reinforce your brand, generate word-of-mouth excitement and get you noticed by the media.

Show your gratitude by hosting that summer picnic, holiday party or company milestone event. Let us create an event that is tailored to your needs and budget and will keep your internal customers happy.



Producing a film or television show can test your determination and willpower. It takes months, if not years, of thankless work to bring your vision to the screen, including countless hours in planning, drawn-out days on set, and late nights in post-production. Now it’s time to distribute your creation and generate excitement. Kim Ruggles Events can help create buzz for your project, get the press or investment exposure you want and ultimately drive sales at the box office.



With the hard work behind you, it’s time to celebrate and kick back. Kim Ruggles Events can give your dedicated cast and crew a much-deserved break, creating the perfect space to unwind, let out steam, and retell those knee-slapping OMG moments from the set.



Make a splash and unveil your passion project with a big extravaganza. Premiere and red carpet events are all about building online and word-of-mouth chatter and grabbing the media’s attention. Kim Ruggles Events will help you create the right kind of impression, gaining maximum press exposure and driving more traffic to the box office.


Kim went above and beyond to ensure that our event would be a success. Her attention to detail, dedication, calm demeanor, and impressive pre-event organizational skills make her such a pleasure to work with and a true party planning asset.
