Menetre IV “Beau”
Beau attended the Art Institute of Atlanta where he studied Multi-Media/ Graphic Design. He is one of those lucky individuals who knew exactly what career to pursue – Event and Show Technology.
In his career, Beau has used his professional, calm demeanor and “hands on” management approach and customer service orientation in a wide variety of technical disciplines. These include Live Event Technology, TV and Film Production and Corporate Event Management. Beau is always a partner with his clients, regardless of their production needs. Clear evidence of this partnership style is the fact that when Beau completes an assignment, his client insists that he return for their next event. For example, he has been Technical Director of more than 30 Show Events for the US Marines. He has also been the Project Manager /Technical Director for every annual event for the past 12 years for a large Medical Association.

Can Blue Dog work with other service companies or my in house event staff?
It is very common for us to plan along with an in house staff or work alongside a third party company that provides some specialty services. We are comfortable in all teamwork circumstances and welcome any such opportunity.
Can Blue Dog handle multiple events at multiple locations?
Certainly. We have had situations where we have to handle multiple events for a single organization at a series of locations. We have had situations were events are simulcast to various locations. We have covered a variety of events for the same company at the same time or in sequence. We have planned, and produced large and small events at several locations simultaneously. As in anything, there may be a limit of size, number and scope of events for us to handle at one time but we haven’t reached it.
How can Blue Dog manage so many different events and shows?
Experience, Planning and Network is the easy answer. In fact, it is the only answer. Blue Dog has all three of these elements and we couldn’t be so successful without them.
