SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Utah made headlines in 2015 as an economic powerhouse in the United States. Ranked the best state for business by Forbes and third best state by CNBC, Utah has proven that it knows how to handle business, and companies are racing to the Beehive State to reap the benefits.
One company that has capitalized on the buzzing Utah economy is In The Event, an event production and rental company located in Salt Lake City. Chosen by Google to represent Utah in Google's 2014 Economic Impact Report, In The Event was highlighted for their digital prowess and quickly growing business.
That momentum didn't stop for In The Event in 2015. The event company doubled their revenue, moved into a 10,000 square-foot building just outside of downtown Salt Lake City and hired seven new employees.
In The Event is no doubt the perfect example of Utah's booming economy. With Utah's unemployment rate half of the national average, their dollar-per-deal averages obliterating Silicon Valley and a thriving small business culture, In The Event is in the right state to keep their business growing.
The biggest change for In The Event in 2015 was moving into their new headquarters. The company decided it was time to get out of the cramped six small buildings they occupied before and move into a single building that could really hold their growth.
The building, which has been under construction for the last six months as In The Event remodels, will be split into thirds. One-third will house the corporate offices, which are complete with an open floor plan and high-tech conference room. And the other two-thirds will be the warehouse, where In The Event manufactures everything they rent from start to finish.
"This move really encapsulates what we've been doing this year," said co-founder and CEO Robert LaSpina. "The best part of the entire year has been finding and designing this building that we can grow into and do it the way we want."
The new building's open floor plan will be the catalyst for In The Event's continued growth. "It's an open office floor plan so everyone can communicate. Designers, sales and creative are all hearing and working together on the same projects as one team," said LaSpina.
Increased teamwork and creativity is essential in the event production business. Additionally, LaSpina said the independence they will have in 2016, due to two new trucks and their custom warehouse, will help them take their already acclaimed events to the next level.
"We can control what we put out there," LaSpina said. "We don't have to rely on other companies. We can have a flawless, non-issue event every time."
Although the excitement of 2015 is just coming to a head, In The Event isn't slowing down. The company will launch an Amazon store in 2016 that will allow event planners and designers the opportunity to buy some of their custom-made LED furniture. On top of that, In The Event will continue to add new inventory to their vast event rental catalogue.
In The Event is a poster child for Utah's rapid economic growth. And as more companies realize the benefits of doing business in Utah and make their way to the Beehive State, it seems that In The Event will just continue to get busier.
