About Us

Bear Event Services is owned and operated by Sheldon and Wendy Butler.  Sheldon was formerly the long-time director of operations with the Yakima Convention Center, and Wendy, with over 20 years of marketing, communications and event planning experience, purchased Bear Trade Show Services in 2011 with a primary focus on trade shows and expositions.

In 2013 Bear expanded its inventory and services to encompass party rental equipment as well as a full range of audio/visual equipment and event production services. In 2016, the company underwent a name change to Bear Event Services to better reflect the broad variety of equipment and services available to our customers for their special events, big or small.

Bear prides itself on providing exceptional customer care throughout the entire event. From the planning stages where we offer complimentary onsite consultations and rental recommendations, through onsite setup, event management and clean up, we share our expertise with you to make your special event or conference successful.
