Who We Are
Since 1991, SME Entertainment Group has become an industry leader in securing premier entertainment, keynote speakers, celebrities, and sports personalities for many of the world’s most notable Fortune 500 companies. Based in Los Angeles, SME has provided talent and coordinated events featuring many of the hottest entertainers, speakers, and sports personalities of both past and present fame. Listening to and understanding the goals and objectives of our clients – whether they be global corporations or private individuals – represent foremost concerns at SME. We represent our clients and their best interests. Our experienced team members handle all aspects involved in securing the ideal talent for your event – from negotiating the best price to handling travel arrangements and hotel bookings to coordinating and flawlessly executing the event. In 2010, SME was acquired by Live Nation Entertainment, the world’s largest entertainment company. Since then, SME has utilized the leverage and resources of Live Nation, including direct access to Live Nation artists, to provide exceptional results and unparalleled quality to its clients.
A Letter from the President
SME Entertainment Group has built a reputation over the years as a preeminent resource for entertainment, keynote speakers and sports personalities. Since 1991, SME has remained at the forefront of the corporate meetings and events industry and our ability to assess, evolve and adapt to the ever-changing corporate marketplace has enabled us to consistently provide our clients with cutting edge solutions for their event needs.
While we once specialized solely in providing sports personalities, we quickly recognized our clients’ growing needs and diversified our services. Now a full-service talent provider, SME offers business and special topic speakers, comedians, headline musical acts and live theatrical productions.
Many bureaus and agencies refer to their speakers and entertainers as their clients. At SME, YOU are the client and your satisfaction is our ultimate goal. As an independent talent provider not aligned exclusively with any one artist or speaker, we are in a position to objectively evaluate your organization’s needs and secure personalities with your best interest in mind.
I want to personally thank you for allowing us to be a part of your team. We look forward to helping turn your next event into something spectacular. We measure our success by your results!
Corey E. Shapoff, President
