Potomac Talent is a boutique special event agency based in the Washington, DC area since 1997. Our market is primarily the mid-Atlantic with a focus on the Greater Washington, DC area for corporate events, social events, and life events. We enjoy working with a wide variety of people, from full-time event professionals to folks who have only imagined having entertainment for their event. From intimate family or private events to festivals for thousands, we approach all opportunities with respect and meticulous care.
Our capabilities fall into three event industry categories:
Talent and Entertainment • Production and Logistics • Event Management
Our philosophy is to approach every special event holistically. By controlling content (music, entertainment, and talent), with production (audio, video, event technology, and logistics), along with event management (someone in charge of putting it all together), we can better tell your story, support your brand or message. Potomac Talent is very unique in the industry because it's rare to have three equal skill sets that are fundamentally intrinsic to any event in such a large way. We know how to best leverage all three skills to save you valuable time and save your money by avoiding equipment redundancy costs while ensuring that there is continuity across all three sectors.
Potomac Talent is also a 'Buyer-Broker' Agency, which allows us to be objective in our recommendations for entertainment or production options. We are very 'green,' socially responsible and environmentally sustainable, LGBT friendly and welcoming, and celebrate diversity and culture by putting people, community, and environment over profit.
The Washington, DC area has always been home to world-class talent. It is our sincere privilege to continue that tradition by promoting and providing exceptional entertainers, speakers and production services powered by equally talented, technicians, and people working tirelessly behind-the-scenes.

Meet our office pup, Taffy. Not much can get by this adorable six-year-old rescue. She's somewhat of a therapy dog who helps to lighten anyone's emotional load she comes in contact. Typically she's curled up under our desks or entertaining clients with fetch. Outside of work, she likes long walks, loves adventures and car rides, meeting small children, sniffing everything, and enjoys cheese treats. She even has her own Facebook Page 'Following Taffy.'
