The event production and destination management company that has served Colorado since 1969 has rebranded itself as Imprint Group.

“We wanted a name that better communicated what we do and who we are,” says Nicole Marsh, CMP, DMCP and partner of Imprint Group. “Our company is special. We have a diverse team with varied skills and infectious personalities. We make the client’s needs and goals our top priority and customize our work to envision and execute events that have their own identity. The client, the venue, the theme, the entertainment, the décor, the food, everything about a given event should come together to create a distinct experience that you haven’t had before – like its own DNA.”

Imprint Group will retain its location in Colorado serving Denver, and now has a location in Florida serving Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa. Imprint is the preferred partner of the DMC Network in both locations.

Imprint Group will continue to offer the same standard of services as before, including branding and design, destination management, live music and entertainment, production services, teambuilding, and tours and attractions.

AXS Group was the result of a merger nearly four years ago between two longstanding companies in the event industry: The Arrangers, Colorado’s first DMC opened in 1969; and Starkey Productions, an entertainment and production company founded in 2000.
