About Top Choice Awards and Tigris’ Top Event Staffing Agency Win

What Does It Take To Be The Top Event Staffing Agency

Tigris has been in business for 12 years and while this award is specific the top event staffing agency in GTA, our team is strong Canada-wide. None the less; it’s extremely exciting to be recognized with an award of this stature. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Tigris, it’s no surprise since we are the company behind the brands we build. From our humble beginnings, planning events in the basement of the company founders home and less than 25 staff here in Toronto – to purchasing our office space in March of 2015 with 6 full-time employees and 2000 events staff nationwide – it’s been quite a ride, to say the least.

When we are discussing our dynamic event staffing and experiential marketing services with prospective clients, one of the most common questions we get is – what makes us different. So what is it that makes us the top event staffing agency?

To answer this question, we asked our client’s this same question. One of them said, our success onsite is a given – but it’s the before and after that is truly exceptional. From the moment they contact us, they know they are in good hands. Their calls and emails are responded to promptly, we keep them in the loop every step away, we have measures in place to troubleshoot if need be, our post-reports are provided within 2-3 days of an event wrapping up – and this performance is consistent – event after event.

We have instilled our management team with a sense of urgency so no client’s call or email goes unanswered for an extended period of time. Our team is accessible 24/7 to ensure our events are executed smoothly. With such a large team, we also have processes and systems in place to further support the success of our activations. Our account managers work feverishly day in and day out planning our events and are excellent at what they do. In field, we look for the best of the best in our brand ambassadors, events staff, promo models and market researchers. We are committed to paying them well/quickly along with other incentives, benefits and fun/flexible opportunities to keep them coming back for years on end, literally. Some of our staff have been on our team for over 10 years which is almost unheard of in our industry.

While winning the award for the top event staffing agency is an exciting accomplishment, it’s not everything. Our people are our passion – and our client’s success is our success.  Over the past 12 years, we have created, planned and staffed close to 10,000 activations for over 500 clients. That is a whopping 44,771 management hours and 144,971 combined staffing hours. That’s pretty amazing if you ask us – and now we have our consumer’s votes to support what we knew all along! And speaking of votes! Not only were we provided with feedback from voters, we were also provided with the results. We were proud to see we received more than half of the total votes in our category and a 90% overall rating. Results like this are something our entire team can be proud of – and it’s a testament to the quality of service our business stands for.

To date, Tigris has been nominated for 7 awards in the past 2 years and won 3 including the Top Choice Award for Top Event Staffing Agency, #95 on the W100 List of Female Lead Businesses for 2016 as well as a sales achievement award at the Ultimate Wealth Weekend in 2014.
