Expert-Led Events That Deliver Impact From Bear Claw Events, Inc.
Every Bear Claw Events, Inc. solution reflects our team’s dedication to innovation and excellence. We guarantee professional representation.
Bear Claw Events Inc. started in January of 2014.
Our President of Bear Claw Events Matt L., has a heavy sports background that influences Bear Claw Events office. President Matt earned the nickname “bear” at a young age for being a grizzly bear on the field, and a teddy bear off the field. When thinking of a brand name to build a business, he wanted to imprint an aggressive sports minded philosophy to his brand. The inspiration behind Bear Claw Events is that as the company continues to grow, each person that comes in contact with our bear motto will gain valuable skills to professionally grow and will take a piece of the bear with them into their career.
Bear Claw Events is now a premier promotional branding firm that offers its clients the ability to increase their consumer base while driving their business and provide brand development with cost-effective campaign strategies. Our goal is to expand through cross training the appropriate individuals in all aspects of business, advertising, and marketing, to build strong managers to take on additional campaigns.
