The 15th annual It List recognized the St. Louis-based agency for their dedication to disrupting the status quo and delivering unforgettable experiences that connect brands with their stakeholders.

CPG is honored to once more be featured on the Event Marketer It List as a best-in-class event agency. Chosen for quality of work, creativity, reputation and for being able to back up each claim, CPG Agency adds the 2017 recognition to a list of distinguished awards in the event space, including being named a “Top 50 Special Events Company” by Special Events Magazine last year as well as a St. Louis Business Journal winner for the list of “St. Louis’ Largest Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations Firms.” CPG continues to raise the bar for themselves and the industry through disruptive corporate events that transform moments into movements for their clients.

Originally a large event production agency known as Creative Producers Group, CPG rebranded in 2016 and shift their strategy to design transformative experiences that treat a three-day conference as a year-long engagement. By going beyond lights and sound to produce experiential engagement solutions, CPG helps cascade critical brand messaging from leadership to the frontline stakeholders. Top brands like Amazon, Southwest Airlines, Sam’s Club, Panera Bread, Jimmy John’s, Carnival Corporation and more have benefited from CPG’s unique live experiences, internal engagement and immersive digital solutions.

“This is a big deal for us,” said CPG Agency CEO, Keith Alper. “Getting named to the list again is a credit to our entire team. We take great pride in producing exciting events, partnering with world-class clients, implementing innovation at every turn and surrounding ourselves with an elite team of event specialists every day! Everyone plays a key role in delivering client satisfaction through the best experience at the best value for their investment.”

Event Marketer Magazine read, analyzed and scored each agency entry based on a number of qualifying criteria that considered their breadth of work, event exclusivity and overall expertise in the space.

They explained the painstaking process to identify the true change-makers in this industry: “In an era of explosive growth, we recognized that there are a lot of shops out there with a sudden ‘expertise’ in experiential, and so we were dead serious about checking their bonafides.” About each agency’s people who make it all possible, Event Marketer said, “Those tireless engines know no bounds when it comes to creativity, strategy and know-how in order to deliver top-notch experiences for some of the most demanding clients ever. The work this year was outstanding.”
