In the mid-1990s, Dick Barton started Barton Marketing Group. His son and partner, Alexander, joined the company in 1998 and is the current President. This fall the duo decided to refocus their efforts on providing total event management. With a new website (www.bartonchicago.com), Barton Event Management (BEM) was launched and positions itself as a full-service resource for event management, marketing and onsite logistics execution.

“Our advance planning model creates all the specifications from the event schedule, room sets, catering, banquets, audio/visual design and security. We have relationships with national entertainment acts and award-winning speakers as well as some of the best local talent in the Chicago area. When you work with us, you don’t have to be concerned with quality or safety since we have a proven track record of attention to details with a flair of creativity,” said Barton.

Dick Barton has been a member of the Park Ridge Chamber for over 20 years. He has been active in the communications committee which used to put together a printed newsletter, the First Friday Cruisin’ Park Ridge Car Show Committee, and, of course, on the Board of Directors including being President in 2006. He has been awarded a Community Star and the President’s Award for service. Barton enjoys attending Park Ridge Chamber events, in particular, the Monthly Networking Luncheons where he met one of his best clients.
