Imagination Entertainment is proud to announce a milestone: 20 amazingly successful years of producing dazzling live entertainment productions at events around the world.
Two of their hit shows have played for nearly two decades globally.
- For 16 years, their award-winning production “Cirque de la Mer” has played to over 14 million audience members worldwide.
- Their travelling production “Viaggio – by iL CiRCo” has been featured at two major Olympic Games (Sydney in 2000 and Salt Lake City in 2002), toured 17 countries on 5 continents and has enjoyed rave reviews and sold out theaters worldwide.
Over the span of 20 years, it becomes almost impossible to count the thousands of special events where Imagination Entertainment has inspired corporate audiences throughout the world, entertaining at incentive programs, opening General Sessions, and performing at Awards Galas that have earned praise from Industry leaders and numerous industry awards.
Their work garnered them several prestigious industry awards:
- Two Special Events Gala Awards,
- A Spotlight Award for Best Producer and
- Firestone’s “Q” award… the first time in the history of their company that they ever awarded one to a supplier.
Sam Trego: “Looking back to 20 years ago, I had no idea of the tsunami that was to hit us by creating these production shows. I will always have a special place in my heart for an industry that has supported our artistic vision and has believed in us enough to entrust us their most valued employees, clients and audiences year after year. I will never forget the words of my very first client, the late Pat Pagliuco of CNA Insurance Company, at the start of my career: “The value you bring to our organization is even more important than the golf programs at our outings with clients… you set the atmosphere where great business transactions happen for us, and that is an invaluable resource for our company.”
Andrea Michaels from Extraordinary Events said: “Twenty years of imaginative, professionally produced entertainment is a huge achievement, especially when combined with the genuine talent of the man who founded and is the chief innovator of this wonderful company. I have worked with Sam Trego for many years. Thoughtful, gracious, collaborative and generous, he leads his team by example and thus the performers replicate his attitude. Talent always shines, but the differentiator is when they always do more than asked. Standing ovations, thunderous applause, and a lot of thank you letters always follow one of his creations. I am grateful that he is a part of my life.”
Janet Elkins from Eventworks added: “Congratulations Sam Trego on a successful 20-year run and here’s to 20 more and beyond! We love working with Sam and his incredibly talented team. Sam and his staff of producers and choreographers bring unparalleled creativity and passion to each and every project. Their attention to detail is unrivaled. We love reaching out to Sam to find imaginative and unique acts. From Timber Brown to the Wheel of Death, the variety of acts accessible is sensational. The talent for his customized numerous theatrical productions and breathtaking costumes along with Sam’s knowledge of music makes each IE event a memorable experience for the guests — and the event producer.”
