SLE Receives Award For Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival In Entertainment Reimagined

According to Jamie Morris LeVine, Steve LeVine Entertainment & Public Relations has produced thousands of events, but the Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival stands out as a standout among them.

It is also important to the nation because the event recently won the Informa Connect Special Event Gala Awards in Orlando for best multiple-day event program for a corporation or association.

Jamie, the company’s chief communications officer, states, “It means that our team is doing something right.” The Airpark-based company

Our team sees our events from a broader perspective. It is extremely satisfying to be recognized as a team.

Through a variety of programs and partnerships, the competition recognizes outstanding events all over the world, supports underrepresented voices, and promotes work in the events industry.

An event company that has demonstrated outstanding creativity, organization, and execution of an event or series of events worldwide receives the best multiple-day event program award annually. A statement said that the judges, who were event professionals and experts in the industry, were impressed with SLE’s ability to provide exceptional experiences for the event as a whole and its attendees. Jimmy John’s Château JéJé and the event companies behind Walmart Associates’ Week were among the other finalists.

SLE specializes in new media and design, event planning, coordination, and production, talent management, marketing, and promotions. SLE accepted the award for the most outstanding fair, festival, or spectacle the year before.

SLE places a high priority on the Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival.

According to her, “taking that over in 2015 and watching it grow to what it is now has just been so rewarding and so awesome”

“Steve and I made the decision to concentrate on family-friendly events that we could attend with our children. People who have kids, like us, want to do something cool and fun and enjoy it from an adult perspective with food, drinks, and music. The Ostrich Festival has been a highlight, but Scottsdale Fashion Week is always fun as well.

After the pandemic, SLE relaunched the Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival in 2022 with enhanced entertainment and attractions and established a special Chandler Community Day to honor community youth and give back to residents. In addition, the festival was extended to seven days over two weekends from three days. SLE also introduced new technology, including RFID technology, cashless systems, and a clear policy on bag security.

In high school, Steve began his career in entertainment as a DJ in Los Angeles, which led to promotions and marketing in nightclubs.

She asserts, “He was DJing parties and events before moving to Arizona to attend ASU.” He was DJing at all of the fraternity and sorority parties and bars around ASU. That is the means by which he began his business.

He founded SLE in 2007, realizing the market for corporate events and the mainstreaming of DJ culture.

She says, “He was booking DJs and doing promotions for bars and nightclubs for a long time.” He started booking speakers and bands as he got older. It’s been a lot of fun to watch this business move from booking DJs and working in the EDM (electronic dance music) space to really concentrating on big concerts and big names over the years.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, which prevented entertainment and event venues from operating for more than two years, the business suffered a setback.

According to her, “we really had to reevaluate a lot of things,” including “how we do our business,” “who we do business with,” and “where we want to put our energy and focus.”

We took a lot of time off to rethink our business and our business model. It humbled me and opened my eyes.

She says that they had layoffs and hired “an amazing new team of people” who were passionate when the pandemic subsided.

SLE’s busy summer is over, and in September, the company will start hosting events again, starting with Scottsdale Fashion Week. It was moved to fall to avoid competing with other major events.

“The community has really rallied around them—and us—at our feel-good events.”
