About Us

High Altitude Special Events Management was founded in October 2013 by Steve Bingham-Hawk after ten successful years producing all manner of events in the Chicagoland area, including many of the most popular and best-known runs, walks and outdoor festivals. Our parent company, Special Events Management located in Chicago, Illinois is the largest full-service producer of events in the Midwest. In fact, each year more than 500,000 individuals participate in SEM-produced runs and walks while another 1.5 million visit our art, street and beer festivals. At High Altitude Special Events Management, we service clients all over the United States. Wherever there’s a new height to reach, High Altitude SEM will be there to help you reach it!
