Tim Altbaum is CEO of Vario, a San Diego based, internationally traveled Planning, Production and Technology company, and is a native San Diegan with over 20 years in the events industry.
He is a former board member of the San Diego Chapter of NACE and MPI, and was awarded Community Leader of the Year by MPI. He actively contributes to other professional organizations, as well as holds a CMP and CSEP designation.
As a special event producer and technology junkie, he is constantly striving to bring new and innovative experiences to the shows he creates. This includes staying ahead of the trends by utilizing state of the art equipment, partnering with tech-forward companies that are the best in their fields, and taking proven techniques and applying them in new ways. From Social Media and Experiential Marketing, to Projection Mapping and Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), collectively known as Mixed Reality (MR), the opportunity to surround guests with a unique and immersive environment has never been so close to 'reality' (pun intended).
