Dufour & Co Productions specializes in creating memorable guest experiences demanding exceptional execution and impact. Dufour & Co Productions turned the innate creativity of our President & CEO, Philip Dufour into a successful business. Philip's business was born from the inspiration of his work in the United States government and the non-profit sector plus his own entrepreneurial spirit. With a keen eye for design and a well-honed sense of organization and creative problem solving, Philip has developed one of the most innovative event production firms in the country. Our business model is designed to be adaptable to our clients, allowing us to build the best team possible to produce each event while keeping overhead costs low. This model has helped us deliver high impact results to our clients for events of every scale and budget; including message building events like Taste America for the James Beard Foundation, brand promoting community relations events sponsored by Target held on the National Mall and official government events such as the inaugurations of Presidents Clinton and Obama.
Our team has an exemplary reputation and unparalleled experience producing high profile events across the country. We have created signature events for major media organizations including "The Hero Summit" for Newsweek Daily Beast, which implemented a unique program design, convening high profile speakers across sectors; bringing together Secretary Madeleine Albright and Bono on the same stage to discuss common issues.
We are also skilled at navigating the complex bureaucracy of producing events in our Nation's Capital and producing public events with a personal touch. Our reputation is one of innovation, integrity and excellence and our style is to go above and beyond; not only are we capable, but we are professional and fully committed to each and every event we produce. From complex productions like the DC Mayor's Arts Awards, the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Competition, and the White House Summit on Early Education to intimate convenings such as Education Reform Now's Camp Philos and Gehl Institute's ActUrban, we recognize the value of bringing people together. We believe that events are not just events; they are opportunities to communicate a specific, important message.
Our events always reflect the client’s individuality and personal style, and we work hard to develop a collaborative operation that is seamless on all fronts.
