Core Values

Client-Obsessed.

We know our clients personally, learning their culture and their business drivers, so that we can better serve them. We seek every opportunity to deliver that little something extra to surprise and delight them.

Undaunted by the unprecedented.

We love a good challenge. Thanks to our ingenuity, grit and resilience, even the seemingly impossible is made possible. Our natural impulse is to say “yes” because we wholeheartedly believe in our ability to solve any challenge.

Brave bias to action.

When we see something, we do something. We consider ourselves responsible not only for the tasks that we directly control, but for all that affect the success of the collective mission. Doing anything, regardless of the outcome, is preferred to doing nothing at all.

Win Together.

All clients, vendors, subcontractors, suppliers, and staff are our team members. We are united by a shared vision and a singular destination, which is a positive and life changing experience for the audience.

A little better all the time.

We fearlessly embrace change and are dedicated to a culture of learning. We actively solicit feedback from clients, co-workers, vendors and partners in order to constantly update and integrate newer and better practices.

Our Culture

Fourteen years ago, Solomon Group proudly opened its doors in the cultural wealth spring that is New Orleans; the proud home of Mardi Gras, the best jazz music in the world, some of the most unforgettable culinary dishes on the planet and the original melting pot of the United States….Over the past decade, we have developed into a live experience studio full of artists, designers, craftsmen, strategists, and innovators who have produced literally thousands of events and exhibits, featuring the biggest talent, in some of the world’s most prestigious venues…

Our Pride

Solomon Group is ardently inclusive and proudly LGBT-owned. We are certified as a diverse business by the largest LGBT business advocacy organization in the world: the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).

As a part of our daily operations, we rely on our growing network of trusted Minority Business Enterprises (MBE), Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), and Women Business Enterprise (WBE) partners to create unforgettable experiences.

We are passionate teams of creators, technologists, producers, and fabricators of experience who thrive on the complexity of delivering what’s next.

We leverage our range and talent to produce experiences that matter. From the biggest ephemeral live moments to sustainable timeless exhibitions, we turn artistic vision into cultural realities.
