As Chairman of the Harley-Davidson Love Ride,
I secured CEO Derek De Vette and SkyBright Agency's services to handle our Grand Finale festival and Foo Fighters rock concert.
We went from 2,700 attendance the previous year to a sold-out 14,500+ capacity event and $1,000,000 in charitable donations raised for United States veterans. I trust in Derek and SkyBright!

It was my first time as a Gala chair for a non-profit organization. I was justifiably terrified of the job ahead of me and lost as to where to begin. I knew I needed a professional and interviewed half a dozen highly recommended event planners. But when I received CEO Derek De Vette’s proposal from SkyBright Agency and spoke to him, I could instantly tell that he was head and shoulders above the others. Thankfully, he came on board.
Derek pours not only his years of experience, talent, and intelligence—but his whole heart into whatever project he takes on. It becomes more than a job. It becomes a passionate commitment. He is driven, but patient. Strong but flexible. And really listens to the needs and goals of the client.
The week of the event happened to coincide with the arrival of his newborn baby girl. He never paused, never let down, and gave it 100%. The event was huge success – the best Gala in the organization’s 24-year history. Next time, my first call will be to SkyBright Agency.

We hired SkyBright Agency to run several influencer events across Los Angeles. These included a runway fashion show, vendor marketplace, beauty activation stations, posh rooftop receptions, VIP gifting suites, exotic luxury car photo ops, power speaker panels with celebrities, live musical performances, dancers, DJs, media & video crews, talent-wrangling, and red carpet.
There were quite a lot of moving parts, across multiple indoor- outdoor stages and venues. To say SkyBright did a phenomenal job is an understatement. Their CEO Derek De Vette is over-the-top professional, organized, friendly and fun, and someone who will 100% ensure your event is an above-and-beyond success. He is our chosen Event Producer and ran the entirety of all our events seamlessly.
Competency is key. If you are looking for someone to run any event you are hosting globally — Derek is your guy and SkyBright Agency is your team.

I hired SkyBright Agency to produce my foundation's Human Rights & Hope Speaker Series. From start to finish—the design, layout, planning, and show execution ran like a finely tuned Stradivarius.
Derek De Vette is my Event Producer of choice. I am extremely picky about who I trust with my brand, organization, public image, and events. He has never let me down and always handles my requests with kid gloves.

SkyBright Agency brings the community and entertainment element to the table. CEO Derek De Vette lives for bigger-than-life, unexpected experiences. But I notice he also searches out the tiniest ones. Things like free valet parking if you support our artisans; or healthy spa water while you’re waiting for your car. Those unexpected little touches make people sneak a surprise smile and come back again.

I have for nearly 20 years observed and experienced first-hand the work of SkyBright's CEO, Derek De Vette. He is one of the smartest, most hard-working responsible people I know. When you ask for help you can be certain he will give you more than was asked for. He is the real deal.

I hired SkyBright Agency to run the Grand Opening of our new state-of-the-art marketing facility in Florida.
On the day of the event, Mother Nature threw us a curveball...a tropical storm! The event coordination team was quick to pivot and ended up helping us create a magical night for our guests and staff. I was extremely impressed with the professionalism, vision, guidance, and service offered by Derek De Vette & Pat Frey. Thank you for helping us create an unforgettable night.
