Our Company Values

Work Hard Play Hard
We work hard so we can play hard. We believe that playing helps our team refresh their minds to inspire new ideas, and regain strength when back on the field.
Details Make the Event
Everyone can see the big picture, but it's the details that are remembered. We think about and execute even the smallest details to ensure every experience is unique.
Where it all started
The Date: July 3, 2003
The Event: Guerrilla marketing event for the launch of Toyota brand Scion
The Catch: The event needed to reach their target market for the release of the new Toyota brand Scion, and they needed it for the July 4th weekend.
The Solution: Beach Sand Sculptures
Our principal, who was just breaking into the event industry, quickly put together a team to produce the event. The next day they were on Hermosa Beach building a nearly full-size Scion xA car in the sand and handing out swag to the South Bay locals. This guerilla marketing event led to 5 other Scion sand castle event activations along the California coast.
And where we are now

Ben Fox is the founder and President of Matrix Events. The dream to open up his own event company started in his hometown of Minneapolis, MN while he was DJ’ing and promoting various night clubs and social events.

After 20+ years of producing live events throughout the world, Ben moved back to the US and started Matrix Events in Denver, CO in 2018. They have pivoted strongly to virtual events and now leaders in the industry.
Ben has lived a unique life as he lived in 4 different countries and travelled to over 40 nations! He is a world champion sand sculptor – think a 17’ Hogwarts Castle in sand! His family is his driving factor for everything he does – his lovely wife Amber, is the heart of the company and 2 kids, Braxton and Kaya, keep Ben grounded and energized for the marathon of being a father and business owner.
