Outreach / Marketing
In 1994 as the Philadelphia region was emerging as a corporate and association meeting destination, Joey, at the urging of the local hospitality movers and shakers, launched Robert Event Group to provide creativity, consultation, logistics and full service support to compliment the new Pennsylvania Convention Center, hotels and venues.
Roberts Event Group blazed (and continues to blaze) new concepts to meet the demands of the ever sophisticated members of the industry. Roberts continues to be recognized as the leading firm of its type for developing the new standards of the hospitality support industry.
In 2014, Roberts Event Group celebrated its 20th anniversary. Mr. Roberts is very proud and humbled to have his company reach that milestone. This accomplishment was reached as a result of wonderful long term clients and a staff of dedicated, creative professionals. Joey looks forward to following the growth of Roberts Event Group for at least another 20 plus years!
