Why Use High Impact?

  • Clients use High Impact to supplement existing staff with an instant resource bringing decades of experience and knowledge that will minimize the impact on company resources.  We are able to focus exclusively on achieving your event or exhibiting objectives.  Your staff remains focused on your business and are not distracted by a “side-job” in which they have little or no experience, expertise or interest in performing.  You also avoid the costs of inexperience, direct and indirect overtime, staff fatigue,  missed revenue opportunities and customer support issues.
  • Clients use High Impact to fill-in during staff absences or vacancies, to keep events on track and avoid over burdening staff members still present.
  • Clients use High Impact’s workshops, classes and on-the-job coaching to educate and accelerate the development of staff members with event and exhibiting assignments or new event production related responsibilities.

About The Owner


Hi!  I am Gary Buterbaugh,  the owner of High Impact Event Resources, LLC.  In 1999,  I retired from the banking industry as Director of Product Management and Development for a large Southern California bank.  I used my years of experience and accumulated knowledge in project management, financial and banking trade shows and marketing events to form High Impact Visual Marketing, LLC,  offering trade show related services and products under one roof.   In 2007,  I transitioned the company to High Impact Event Resources, LLC,  to provide exhibitor support services to organizations who exhibit at trade shows and community events,  and to provide event support services to organizers of B2B and B2C events.  I am also an independent producer of a couple of community expos each year.  Recently, for three semesters I taught a 90 hour class on Event Planning and Production in a high school vocational program.  Now living in Loveland,  Colorado,   I look forward to helping both my Colorado and California clients exploit the power of face-to-face marketing through trade shows, expos and  community events, and achieve a maximum return on each event investment.
