  • We have worked with AMPA and Ted (the owner) directly for 5+ years. In those years AMPA has provided lighting, sound and decor for our organizations showcase events (annual awards dinner for 800+ and our symposium). You can imagine, it takes a certain skill to re-design an annual event so the attendees feel like they are having a different experience year over year. It takes a skill beyond basic design methods and it's hard to find but Ted and his team -- they have it! As a non-profit, budget is very important to us and as an event planner, of 13+ years, I have big ideas re: design. Ted and his team have been amazing at helping me re-imagine the event so my design fits my budget. The design, execution and service is always excellent and our attendees are amazed EVERY year. It's been great working with AMPA and I can't wait to see what we come up with next year.

  • I have worked with Ampa Events for several years. Ampa has provided lighting for our scholarship dance and their work has made the event look fabulous. Ted and the team at Ampa are great to work with. They are easy going, friendly and accommodating. There equipment is great and the lighting designs they execute with the larger fixtures are breathtaking. We have had Stars on the walls and a design that made the room look like fall. It's incredible what they can do with their theatre background. If you need a good lighting company, I highly recommend Ampa. Thank you Ampa Events, Ted, Jordan, Leslie, Kammy and the rest of you, for a job well done.

  • AMPA Events was wonderful to work with. They were able to help me out with a very last minute order and even went out of their way to make sure that I was saving money. Their equipment was high quality and I paid a fair price to rent them. All of the staff was very nice and accommodating. I look forward to working with them again.

  • We worked with Ampa Events for lighting at my daughter's reception. They did a great job for us and with lighting, they made a huge difference in the hall. It was the perfect extra touch that truly enhance the event. I worked with Ted Rubis and several other member of the Ampa Team. They were all great, fun and responsive. Thank you Ampa Team. We highly recommend you and will tell others….

  • AWFUL service. theres a reason they're the cheapest lighting company in town! We booked them about nine month's before our wedding. After we paid the deposit I couldn't get anyone to return my calls. We finally heard from on the day of the wedding because they were confused about where to put the lighting and I didn't have time to talk to them. My DOC tried to call them back repeatedly but never could reach them. As we entered the reception, we discovered that the lighting wasn't the color we ordered and they spelled my husband's name wrong on the gobo!!! My dad has been trying to reach them since the wedding, but the owner of the company isn't taking any of our phone calls or emails. Spend a little more and get a professional company for your wedding!!

  • Unfortunately I have to write a very negative review of Ampa Events. They were one of the recommended vendors of my venue (Chrysler Museum) but they used to be Ampa of Tidewater, which seems to have been incorporated into Ampa Events in Richmond. Things started out well, they were the only recommended vendor who still offers PAR 38 uplighting, which is far less expensive than LED, so that is why I chose them. Then the woman I had been dealing with left the company. She seemed to have a good grasp on the venue, and told me where all the lights (28 total) would be placed. There is a grand staircase into the dining area where it is typical for the bridal party to enter, and I have an email from this former Ampa staff member stating that the staircase landing, top and bottom would be lit, as well as all the columns around the dining area. This information apparently didn't filter down to the technician. On the day of the wedding, the technician called the groom from Chrysler HALL ra... Read more
