What My Clients Say

“Our signature event at Safe Horizon, The Champion Awards, has numerous moving parts and objectives. Chris works with our in-house staff to pull all the elements of production and messaging together to create a dynamic and extraordinary event for the 1,000 plus guests who attend each year. We are looking forward to working with Chris once again on our 2020 event!”

Bideawee has enjoyed partnering with event specialist Chris Lipari for over nine years. Since Chris has come on board, our annual Bideawee Ball Gala has seen a substantial increase of in-room revenue, due largely to the way he structures the event and his suggestions for managing our auctions and program. We value the relationship for the many benefits it brings to Bideawee and the animals we rescue. We’d be hard pressed to find a better event producer and we look forward to working with Chris for many years to come.”

Leslie Granger, President & CEO, Bideawee

“Chris is a wonderful event producer and I always recommend him to friends and colleagues. I hired Chris when I worked at Safe Horizon as well as Services for the UnderServed. Chris ran the show (and beyond) for events of 400 to 1,200 that had multiple speakers, videos, performances, stages, lighting cues, etc., … He is a wonderful partner to plan and produce events with. I trust him to run an event flawlessly.”

Kate Krug, Director of Development, Services for the UnderServed

Working with Chris removes the stress of ensuring all the logistics and technical set up and run of show requirements are perfect and problem free, especially the night of the event. “

“Chris’ guidance and direction enabled the PR Council’s signature events to run flawlessly over the past four years. For both our Annual Dinner and Critical Issues Forum, he takes care of details so our senior staff had more time to spend with members and guests. His planning and handling of the technology was terrific; he made all presenters feel relaxed knowing they were in good hands. We look forward to working with Chris each year.” 

Renee Wilson, President, PR Council

MCC Theater has worked with Chris and his team on our annual gala, “Miscast”, for nine years and counting. Every year, he has helped us create an exciting and dynamic event featuring a dozen stars from Broadway musicals on stage, and a lot of moving parts everywhere else. While maintaining costs and with a limited rehearsal schedule, Chris has enhanced the production values, including lighting, audio and video treatments—setting our guests expectations higher each year. It’s been a great partnership.”
