Opening Bell Events

Our Services

Opening Bell Events is a full-service event planning and production company with twenty years of experience specializing in corporate events, experiential events, meetings, and conferences all across the country, with a focus on New York City.

We manage event planning, design, and production from start to finish. With our special expertise in venue finding, each event is matched with the perfect location, ensuring a synergy between vision and execution. We recommend vendors in any area necessary based on our decades-long relationships. Our focus on activations brings greater attendee engagement to every event.

As the world re-emerges from its pause, event experiences create a touchpoint for corporate messaging and culture. Bringing employees and clients together has never been more of a crucial part of how a company communicates to its audience.

IPO events present a specific challenge with their tight turnaround timelines and each company’s specific event concept. Friedman Productions has created IPO week celebrations ranging from elegant seated dinners to a weeklong New York City destination celebration comprised of ten events in one week, each in a separate location, featuring a flash mob outside the Nasdaq headquarters in Times Square.

With principals Abby Friedman and Leslie Sloane, the whirlwind process of planning an IPO celebration – while a company has many other priorities to address – is smooth and professional. We manage all event details and logistics making the event development and execution as seamless as possible.
