Founder & President
Born in raised in San Luis Obispo, California, Mike Spangler has been producing Corporate Events, Festivals, Trade Shows, Product Launch Parties and everything in between for over 20 years.
Noticing his knack for event design, organization & management, in 2000 he moved to Los Angeles where he worked at the region's largest Tent & Rental company. Seeing no limit on how far he could go in the industry, he moved to New York City where he got his first taste of destination management and was part of the team to produce the events for the opening of two broadway dhows. The opportunity to produce the 5th Annual Chocolate Show opened his eyes to the Trade Show market, but his lifestyle was more suited to California.
In 2002, Mike moved to San Diego, California where he worked at some local Destination Management companies and quickly moved his way up the ladder to holding the role of Director of Operations. He managed a team of up to 10 planners and admin staff, overseeing and producing 100 Corporate events a year.
2007 came with an idea to start Spangler Event Productions, a full-service Event & Destination Management Company. On his own, Mike was sought after to produce some local San Diego Food, Beer & Music Festivals. Building his clientele during the early years, he quickly showed his clients the passion and expertise to produce high end corporate events, incentives & award shows.
With a handful of select clients, Mike and his team design, build & manage every aspect of each event, bringing staff to 4 to 5 different cities across the U.S. each year.
"Mike been with us for over 10 years. Over the years, he has proved that we can throw any task or responsibility at him. With the same three events a year in different cities, Mike is challenged to show our suppliers, vendors, customers & staff something new & each and every time. His creativity and on-site management is up there with the best in the industry. You can really tell he has a passion for event design & entertainment. No challenge is too large for Mike and his team and we always look forward to the next one."
FRED SANELLI - SENIOR VP PERFORMANCE FOOD GROUP
"I respect the professional manner that you bring to our events. You are detailed and yet remain open to the inevitable surprises that always seem to occur, that’s something not every Operations Director can deal with as easily as you do. I also appreciate and respect you for taking the time to get to know our crew and both encouraging them verbally and rolling up your sleeves to help when you have the time. Again, that is something we often don’t experience on the jobsite."
RICK DOTEN - OWNER, RICK DOTEN PRODUCTIONS
"Mike is a pleasure to work with and an invaluable asset to any team. He brings to the team a great mix of creativity and craftiness while still staying detail oriented; managing multiple aspects of a production or event and adhering to a strict timeline. He is a good steward of the program's budget and finds creative ways to over deliver within budget."
DAVE TERRELL - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SALES JNR INC
"My team and I have worked with Mike Spangler in several capacities for many years. We have always found him to be personable, extremely detail-oriented, completely committed to the overall guest experience and driven in his control of every program element.
Mike’s talent for dovetailing the efforts of his team is unparalleled. He remains calm and adapts to changes easily, and we have followed each other through several twists and turns over the years. Mike is clear and concise in his communication. He is quick to resolve issues onsite as they arise."
