During a time when many American companies are shrinking or shuttering, tech-service company Falcon Events (3001 Gateway Drive, Suite 130, Irving, TX), a complete solution for event streaming, has been expanding, hiring out-of-work professionals into a futuristic industry. Launched in December 2019, Falcon has been catapulted to the forefront of the virtual event marketplace and hiring underemployed talent from across the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Right Place, Right Time, Right Technology – All During the Pandemic

The event production industry has been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 pandemic; yet the demand for virtual events has skyrocketed, creating unique opportunities for Falcon and its now-more than 80 employees. “When we started Falcon Events in late 2019, it was just me and my business partner, Joshua Butler,” explains Bill Mott, Founder and CEO. “Together, we had 25+ years of experience in the industry, but as demand took off, so did our need for production resources and qualified staff.”

When the company launched in December 2019, there were merely 20 events projected for the whole of 2020. By mid-March, all of these events had been canceled, while companies scrambled to safely address concerns about the pandemic. Falcon persisted, adding two of the first film festivals to move to a virtual format, Thin Line Film Festival and Dallas VideoFest’s AltFiction, to their schedule. As entire industries pivoted to virtual and hybrid events, Falcon found itself in high demand and will end 2020 having completed more than 175 successful events.
