When Planning Your Next Corporate Event, Consider this:
A Chilipepper Event will:
Draw the right crowd
ENTERTAIN - ENTICE - EXCEED
CREATE LASTING IMPRESSIONS
True to our namesake, each Chilipepper Event is packed with hot, eye-popping and mouth-watering excitement. While we customize events of all genres, our specialty is creating gatherings with a strong Asian theme.

ANY SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE EVENT...
is made up of three key ingredients. What, When and Where. I call it my three W’s. I founded Chilipepper Event Productions in 2001 and these three W’s have been my guiding principles.
What – Great food draws a great crowd! Each Chilipepper event is planned with a specific theme, with specialty food and drinks help set the stage. Why settle for a cocktail reception when your guests can enjoy an evening of street food tasting a la Penang? Asian cuisine is all the rage these days and a well-executed Asian themed event will be the talk of the town.
When – Asian food is closely linked to many Asian festivals throughout the year. An event with a Chinese New Year, or Autumn Moon Festival theme, will be unique and eye-catching. I am also a firm believer in cross-cultural fusions. Serving Asian food as part of a Fourth of July menu? Why not? This is the Bay Area.
Where – Over the years our team has staged high-profile events all over the Bay Area. We bring our creativity to landmark hotels and museums, and in the Rotunda of the historical San Francisco City Hall. The right venue sets the tone and appearance, and attracts the right audience.
Quality corporate events all look seamless and effortless. That apparent ease requires a high degree of professionalism that could only come via years of experience, true dedication and the support of a first-rate organization.
We don’t believe in one-size fits all when it comes to events. Each event is unique since each client is unique. We champion this ‘boutique’ approach in serving all our clients.
Chilipepper Event Productions is a one-stop/turn-key operation that takes charge from day one onwards. We are the first to arrive and the last to leave. We are flexible - we listen to new ideas, from clients as well as from our vendors. We are involved in all aspects of an event:
- Complete event planning and production
- Menu, food and beverage management
- Vendor selection and contract negotiations
- Budget planning and execution
- Entertainment research and selection
- Sponsor recruitment
- Marketing and public relations
- Staff and volunteer management
