Our Staff Are An Extension Of Your Brand
VIB Events' dedication to first-rate staff training is what sets it apart from other agencies – a fact that is consistently noted by clients. By providing hands-on staff instruction with classroom-style training programs developed in-house, VIB sets the bar high for its recruits. Assigned as “extras” at events, new staff members benefit from gaining experience in the field under supervision, learning quickly about attention to detail and the value of a positive attitude.
