Our mission is to apply our passion, commitment, and skills to create a meaningful community through neighborhood improvement and relevant, professionally-managed events.
We Are Community Builders and Creative Placemakers
Oakland Venue Management (OVM) has been producing a wide variety of events and managing numerous projects throughout Oakland since the company launched in 2008. We are more than your typical event management company – we are highly experienced professional placemakers.
We pride ourselves in working with organizations whose work aligns with our goals, focusing our collective efforts towards sustaining and creating a vibrant, thriving, and inclusive Oakland.
We specialize in full-scale production management and treat each event as a unique opportunity to revitalize our community. Our team supports a variety of private, public, and local organizations; small and large-scale venues; and local event producers in achieving their vision. Our one-of-a-kind approach with full-service event management and community engagement allows for seamless execution and meaningful impact at your events. We create awe-inspiring experiences every step of the way. There’s no better time than now to create a collaborative, innovative, and inclusive event in Oakland.
We work closely with our clients to support their vision and to bring that vision to life through thoughtful collaboration and intentional engagement with the larger community.
Our founders have successfully developed their experience in property management, rental sales and marketing, event management, and project management working to activate public spaces, transform blighted lots, activate vacant buildings, and engage our community.
