PROCLAIM: What you do reveals who you are.
We produce stellar events to tell your story loud and clear.

These last two decades have been a spectacular time for the events industry. Here at Straus Events, we have been on the front lines to both witness and participate in some of some of the most breathtaking innovations in strategy, production and event design. But with all the technological changes that are driving this industry forward – the one element that never changes is the profound significance of the human touch. This is where Straus Events stands out as your best choice for a partner.

We are a boutique agency that has served the corporate, civic, and non-profit communities of the Bay Area for the past 12 years. From planning to execution, from concept to fully-realized design – there is nothing generic about our commitment to you. Be it for meetings, award shows, formal dinners, concerts, product launches, trade show booths, or outdoor fairs, Straus Events is a personalized service. At the helm is Adam Straus. He is beyond affable, intelligent, and resourceful. In the end of the day, events are all about people working with people. For this reason, it’s important that we meet face-to-face, people-to-people. Consider the meeting our first event together. We’ll bring the name tags.

Philosophy

DELIGHT: SHOWING PEOPLE A GOOD TIME IS PARAMOUNT.
WE OPEN HEARTS AND CONNECT PEOPLE TO WHAT YOU VALUE.

Why do an event? Why not do an email campaign or schedule a few strategic lunches? At Straus Events, we answer this with one phrase: the power of community. There is nothing that transforms hearts and minds more than being part of a happening that ignites everyone’s spirits together. When faces light up in recognition of why they’ve come to a gathering in the first place — that’s the tipping point when they deepen their feelings of loyalty to the hosts.

We produce events because we want to help you make an impact. It’s that clear and simple. Come to think of it, in life – the best things usually are that clear and simple.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

  • In my more than 20 year marketing career, I have worked with a number of event producers on events large and small. Straus Events is at the top of my list. They are strategic, creative and values-driven. Straus Events not only meets but exceeds our expectations every time. Special requests? He delivers. I look forward to working with him and his firm for many years to come. 

    Steve Sarner, Vice President Marketing, Tagged
  •  We’ve worked with Adam and the Straus Events team on the planning and delivery of several park celebrations over the past few years. From initial planning, through development and delivery, Adam is thoughtful, creative and dependable. By engaging Straus Events we know the process will be smooth and the event top notch. We’ll definitely look to Adam and his team when it comes time to plan our next celebration! 

    Philip Vitale, Sr. Program Manager at The Trust for Public Land
  •  Straus Events brought excellence and low-maintenance management to PCV’s annual event. From thinking strategically about the program objectives to executing the event flawlessly, we’ve been happy with Straus and have hired them for 3 years in a row.

    Leslie Milloy, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce
  •  Working with Adam was a great experience, both in terms of outcomes and process. From a numbers standpoint, we received a 50% increase in nominations as well as an increase in quality. In terms of process, we appreciated his flexibility and enthusiasm to participate as part of our team. Additionally, his ability to keep our big goals in mind as we made lots of little decisions made a big difference. We are thrilled to have been able to work with them!

    Amie Latterman, Development Director, San Francisco Planning and Urban Research
  • Straus events is one of the best event companies I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They are always on point and goes the extra mile to make sure that every little details is completely dialed, including things I never would have thought of, and they are great with overall programming and positioning. I would jump at the chance to work with them again, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for top-notch event support. 

    Darian Heyman, Executive Director, Craigslist Foundation
  • Working with Straus Events has allowed the Japan Center Malls to host a wide range of exciting events that has drawn a great audience to our malls. We’re thrilled to have his experience and vision on event planning, community outreach, permitting, design and marketing. We’re thrilled to have had the chance to work with him for the last few years, and to continue working with him into the future. 

    David Goddard, CFO, Japan Center West Associates
  • Adam has great attention to detail and always seems to be a couple of steps ahead of the game when figuring out project needs. I’ve been most impressed with his ability to dig into all the details of the vendors, logistics, volunteers, etc. while being keenly aware of the overall goals of the event such as look, feel and public perception.

    Andrik Cardenas, Director of Operations, Communications Leadership Institute
