history
Over the past 12 years, the Main Event Entertainment Group Ltd. (MEEGL) has built an organization that provides turnkey solutions to deliver Jamaica’s premier event management, digital signage and promotions services in Jamaica and the Caribbean. We have consistently been first to market with products and services and led the sector in innovation and use of technology. The strategic vision to be valued for expertise, continuous innovation and creativity that impacts the entertainment and technology industries in a vibrant way has served to guide the progression and growth of the company. Since launching in 2004, Main Event has traded on the strength of the experience and vision of principals Richard Bair and Solomon Sharpe. The two have been partnering since 1990 as RAS Promotions growing patronage of events Beer Vibes and Hot Shots by 500 percent. The need for engaging brand experiences became apparent and the company was born. The Main Event operation was first housed at 18 Annette Crescent with 2500 square feet and a staff complement of six people. The newly established company expanded their event production repertoire to offer design and construction of custom-built corporate branding solutions and fostered the development of a film production unit. The ICC World Cup Venue Selection Ceremony, “DIGIRIG” music truck and Jamaica Hope documentary are but few of the works created as a result of their influence. The company found a solid footing in the first year on a solid foundation of product launches, movie premieres and sponsorship launches (including sponsorship of the Reggae Boyz on their Road to Germany 2000) in addition to designing and building carnival floats and trade fair booths. Within the first year, the need to serve clients more efficiently became apparent and client services and digital signage departments were added increasing the staff to 16 employees. With ever expanding services for demanding clients, the need for a quicker and more creative response to printing needs became apparent and I Print Digital Ltd. was born. By April 2006, I Print Digital Ltd. was registered independently. Further work has included involvement in international franchise productions Heineken Green Synergy, featuring collaboration with global pop-culture magnates MTV, and the international club-scene phenomenon, Smirnoff Experience. The approach to client development and service delivery gives the company the ability to be responsive and flexible to the varying needs of clients managing both corporate and private events of any size. Clients realise even greater financial value for their products as a result of the Main Event factor. The aesthetic and operational elevation of products create a platform for clients to realize gains in sponsorship, subscription, broadcast rights and franchise revenues. Today, Main Event operates from at Lady Musgrave Road in Kingston with a footprint of 3900 sq. ft. and 15,000 sq. ft. at the Newport West warehouse with a staff complement of 146 including contract workers.
