Our Story


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away


Jon Forst and Elle Chan joined forces at Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light + Magic during the heyday of visual effects that revolutionized the filmmaking industry.  We honed our skills on logistics-intense TV commercial and feature film shoots, merging creative tour-de-force with capability.  After several years at the forefront of brand marketing and advertising, we seized the opportunity to bring that same intersection of “technology meets entertainment” to brands outside the film world, and founded Trademark Event Productions, Inc. in 1997.

Our team’s strength comes from its diversity of background and experience: tech start-up marketing, Burning Man camp leaders, sports marketing, team building, brand ambassadors, promotional marketing, PR and the food industry. We bring creative ideas, strategic management and seamlessness to every aspect of your brand experience to make it even better than imagined.

We’ve built our company in collaboration with an incredible roster of clients, and we’re proud of the relationships we’ve forged.  Year after year, our clients rely upon us for their most critical events. We love what we do, and encourage you to join our fan club.

Come see why 95% of our business is repeat and referral.

We’d love to hear from you
