About

About Scottsdale Private Event Venues

The limitless nature of our venues is awe-inspiring
We need inspiration and creativity more than ever so your vision needs to be create a valuable, memorable experience. Once you know your audience and their preferences, search for the venues that suit them. When you choose our incredibly unique venues, you gain a partner and leader in the industry with expertise in producing inspired, one-of-a-kind, forward-thinking events safely and with ease.

Personalized Experiences Matter
What kind of event experience do you want to have? A 10 star product launch? A Exotic Food Experience? A windswept runway side Experiential Event? We’ve got a venue for that! In fact, more wonderful venues have opened their doors over the years for Scottsdale Private Event venues than for anyone else in Arizona.
When brands connect with consumers in an authentic way, it leaves a lasting impression

With locations as flexible as ours , the scope for producing striking and memorable events is endless. We’ve hosted everything from experiential experiences to corporate seminars, and we pride ourselves in our commitment to helping our clients achieve their vision. We have an in-house events team with extensive experience and contacts in the world of food, entertainment, production, decor, video, and decor.

Being organic is when the authentic experiences are memorable
If you are looking for an exclusive venue to really impress your guests, you can’t get more unique than mingling with a drink beside a Supermarine Spitfire, dining near the legendary Hawker Hurricane or the mighty Cessna T-50.
An experience on every level If you’re tired of the usual hotel event space, look no further and choose a venue to remember! Our dedicated events team is ready to discuss your event requirements and make your next event truly awesome!

“Blank slate” event venues are a cool option to give yourself innovative control of how you want the space to look and feel. Each time there is a Experiential Activation in our hangars, it looks special from one event to the next. This is ideal if you’re looking for an event venue that’s inspirational for you and your invitees, no matter if they’ve been there before. Basically, ditch all the “rules” and make your event your own and exclusive to you!
That authentic experience is memorable

Bringing individuals at the same time in inspiring event venues is how ideas roll. When folks meet in person, they shake hands, they hug and share conversation it creates inspiration innovations. When the official part ends, they can mingle in groups, have fun together and make friends. This comfortable collaboration and leads to lasting relationships— company friendships. This is what happens when people meet face-to-face.

Impressive events are experienced, not simply attended

Venues with measureless capacities that let you open the doors to the crowds, to those that help you encapsulate a more guarded and exclusive vibe where you can focus instead on stirring a select few; from large blank canvases to distinctive spaces, and from cutting-edge hangars to automotive-themed settings; we are capable to cater to almost every style party imaginable.

It’s the essence of this that our event team strives to instill in each sales meeting, incentive, non-traditional conference, and party and what sets us apart from our competitors.
That feeling of ‘seen it, done it’ it’s always lingering around
While an expensive hotel can set the platform for a perfectly charming event, every now and then clients crave a truly unique backdrop for their event. Standing out from the crowd involves more than just fabulous décor and a well-played theme—the setting anchors the entire event. And when an ordinary venue just won’t do, consider an out-of-the-box space to set the stage for a truly extraordinary event like the Vehicle Vault Event Venue Scottsdale.

Being inspired, and leaving nothing to chance always ensure a unique experience. This gives us a lot of momentum to meet your high requirements and we love to go the extra mile. We put our spirit and soul into delivering our customers with an entertaining and unforgettable time. We recognize incentives are for applauding successes and rewarding your team. To make your incentive event stand out, you’ll want a truly mesmerizing experience.

Demand for non-traditional venues is expected to grow matching the previous year’s predictions and exceeding demand for any other style of venue. At SPEV Event Venues, we recognize that unforgettable events are about an experience it is why we focus on Non-Traditional Venues. Breakfasts

Unique Experiences
Classic Car + Cocktail Bar
First, we took two fully customized 1930’s Model A trucks and repurposed them as mobile bars. Each vehicle has its own unique 90 year history & aesthetic, perfect for photo opportunities and conversation starters. We didn’t stop there- we worked with a fashion specialist to source period-correct uniforms and researched every classic cocktail (and mocktail) to fit the part.

Arizona Aerial Extreme Skydiving
The Arizona Aerial Extreme Skydiving Team, based out of Phoenix, formed in 1997.
The Aerial Extreme Skydiving Team have performed at international events that include professional sporting events, business grand openings, rodeos, festivals, and charity events. All the members of the team are professionally rated by the United States Parachute Association. This PRO rating is awarded by the U.S.P.A. only to skydivers who can master the most difficult aspects of the sport.

Helicopter entrances and rides during events
Helicopters can land in open fields, parking lots, resorts golf courses, backyards, and other Scottsdale locations. These operations require a safe landing area that’s at least 100 feet x 100 feet, level and free of impediments, trees, and wires. They also require the consent of the property owner. There is nothing else like it in our market and we are thrilled to bring this cutting-edge venue to YOU! This unique venue is ideal for large-scale events with groups up to 450 guests.

Vintage Pan Am
Guests Take A First-Class Flight to 1927! 
From arrival to departure, the atmosphere transported attendees to the 1930’s. The well decorated space made guests feel as if they took flight upon the first international airline known as Pan-American Airlines. The night was filled with travel themed décor and the food transformed people’s palettes. 

The experience began instantly upon arrival. Attraction started with a suspended aerialist serving champagne into a glass tower structure. This brought the WOW factor to guests just beginning to enter the space. It was a true foreshadow of the night they were about to encounter. 
Hors d’oeuvres served in antique cigar boxes brought charm plus a tasteful bite to entice the palates of those present. The bold flavors of exquisite cheeses and meats delivered more than an ordinary appetizer plate. Although a large space, the dining experience was the exact opposite. Modular walls closed in on a long array of dining tables made for an intimate feel. The long dining tables allowed for guests to sit amongst each other and experience the culinary presentation together. 

Modular walls were spruced with Pan-Am themed decal posters. Each plate setting was so beautifully placed aligning with gold elegant touches. From the chargers, flatware, and candelabras, all were paired beautifully together. All settings were completed with a “Pan Am” brochure truly captivating the theme of the classic airline.  Servers or Flight Attendants? Service staff dressed in Pan-Am themed uniforms uniquely provided the final touch for a memorable experience. Flight attendants or pilot uniforms walking about the flight hanger brought the space to life. 

Roaring Twenties- Dazzling Event
The Roaring Twenties was a time of rebellion, liberation, and cultural evolution. The Roaring Twenties look is all about that wow-factor of glamour. Layering long pearl necklaces and show-stopping jewels against a simplistic gown take any look to the next level. In the Gatsby-esque area of flappers like Zelda Fitzgerald, zuit suits, gangsters, and jazz-like Duke Ellington, old school glamour reigns supreme. An event is simply an event until you decide to make it unforgettable. Take yourself and your guests into a world of their own when you host your next event at the Vehicle Vault. Take

Hangars and Aerialists 
We combine their astonishing strength with spellbinding movements to prance through the air. Routines are available on Silks, Lyra, Trapeze Hammock, or a custom truss apparatus. Aerial acts typically last from 5 to 7 minutes or can fill a full-length aerial performance with numerous performers. Aerial performances pair well with stilt walkers, strolling champagne service, hoop dancers, and jugglers. Aerialists can be combined to have a larger variety show.
Our gorgeous aerialists will cheerfully serve your guests champagne or mocktails while good-humoredly conversing with them and posing for photos.

Projection mapping, similar to video mapping and spatial augmented reality, is a projection technique[1][2] used to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. These objects may be complex industrial landscapes, such as buildings, small indoor objects or theatrical stages. By using specialized software, a two- or three-dimensional object is spatially mapped on the virtual program which mimics the real environment it is to be projected on. The software can interact with a projector to fit any desired image onto the surface of that object.[3] This technique is used by artists and advertisers alike who can add extra dimensions, optical illusions, and notions of movement onto previously static objects. The video is commonly combined with, or triggered by, audio to create an audio-visual narrative. In recent years this technique has also been widely used in the context of cultural heritage as it has proved to be an excellent edutainment[4] tool thanks to the combined use of a digital dramaturgy.

We can take any content from video, graphics, PowerPoint or Keynote, Live Studio footage, IMAG or drone footage and stream it to any internet capable audio or visual device such as smart phones, monitors, tablets and computers.

Logistics, logistics and more logistics.
Our services begin before the venue is selected. Here is why:

SPACE DEFINITION AND NEGOTIATION. We make sure you have ample and meaningful space for your event or meeting.
EVENT AND PRODUCTION TIMELINE. Proper timeline will avoid overtime charges and delivery troubles.
CAD DRAWINGS. These tools help everyone. Our in-house Creative Services Team will produce CAD drawings before any contract negotiations are concluded.
ELECTRICAL NEEDS. Proper negotiation upfront avoids unnecessary charges and makes sure the layout can be successfully delivered.
RIGGING NEGOTIATION AND DETERMINATION. Key for insurance and delivery issues. We have in-house ability to grid all rigging to the specs of the venue. This saves on additional grid fees.
TECHNICAL LETTERS. Technical Letters are distributed to all parties involved with the delivery of the meeting or event. These include an outline of every detail regardless of the service: videography, speaker support, communication, meeting and production support.
MEDIA AND SPEAKER SUPPORT LETTERS. These are given to you to help assemble all the media and support material needed for any presentation. They outline formats and timelines.

Solutions include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital Concepts
  • Renders and Proofs
  • Posters, Banners, Step & Repeats, and Event Signage
  • Table Toppers, Throw Pillows, and Bar Branding
  • Large Format – Exhibit Booths, Scenic Environments, and Activations
  • Floor and Window Clings
  • Branded Truss Socks and Covers
  • Specialty Orders – Vehicle Wrapping and Murals
  • Packing and Distribution


  • Graphic Design & Logo Design
  • Print Collateral
  • Full Service Sign Shop
  • Graphic and Theme Development
  • Corporate Signage
  • CAD Layouts and Renderings
  • Powerpoint and Visual Support on Location
  • Set the stage & Scenic
Like a puzzle, you can’t see the whole picture until all the pieces of the scenic design are before your eyes. Room diagrams render and seating layouts lay the framework for the event. Scenic and stage service begin to conceptualize the event. The scenic elements and lighting design complete the scene and bring the stage to life. And we mean that literally! We offer premier stage rentals for small parties, mid-sized school or presentation events, and large concerts and festivals. Our stages vary in height from 8 inches to 4 feet.

Our professional drafters, engineers, riggers, and gaffers can pull from over a half million AV and stage rigging components. Our warehouse can take your concept from page to stage. We aim to get the job done right, on-time and on-budget.

Karen & her company are amazing. The venues she works with are also top notch. Would highly recommend using her for any event party you need hosted.

I just wanted to say thank you to SPEV and all of your staff that we personally worked with through my client's event! Everyone was absolutely amazing, friendly and they made sure everything was perfect from the beginning of the day to the end of the night! We have had SO many comments from guests saying it was the most fun they have ever had at an event! Thank you again for making it seamless from start to finish!

I've seen Karen and her team in action at several events. They did a phenominal job and clearly addressed every detail....a pleasure to work with. Karen does a first class event and really takes care of every detail from start to finish. Steve Ziomek 

Karen May rocks. She is the best in the business and goes above and beyond the call of duty for every event she produces, big or small. I highly recommend Karen and her fabulous venues if you want to ensure a successful event. Jane Gordon

I love using the team at Scottsdale Private Event Venues for any events that I host! There are so many options and the venues are so cool! I love that you can create any feel inside the spaces. We have had clients that have taken helicopter rides from some of the venues which gives us a unique activity for the event. We can't say enough about Scottsdale Private Event Venues! Ashley Oaks 

I have known Karen May for about 20 years, her skills are unmatched! Attention to detail, prompt prepayment, unparalleled service and amazing production quality is superior to everyone. Use her. On top of that, she is cool! And Kind! 

SPEV - WOW! Karen and her team are just incredible. Between all her venues she really has a space for anyone. It has been such a pleasure working with her over the last few years, creating absolutely incredible events time and time again. If you're looking for a unique experience and want your guests leaving your event in awe - hire SPEV & their incredible vendor team for your next celebration!

Karen was so amazing to work with and the Heli Hangar was a truly unique and perfect venue for a party. Karen always went the extra mile to source the perfect furniture and decor to compliment the look and feel of our brands. She found a stellar cigar roller for me and even ice sculptures to match my vision for the event activation. I’ve been working on events for many years and this event thanks to Karen was the absolute best. She really thinks of it all and is a true partner in making a vision and event come to life.

Karen May and team are the ULTIMATE, CREATIVE & FUN professionals! I realized I picked the perfect team for my event; when I witnessed, from the very first meeting, that ‘SPEV’ had MY best interest and vision in mind. Karen has amazingly fun and unique ideas and thoughtfully expresses them while actively listening to your needs, wants and desires. She is a no-nonsense, get it done, kind of person. She ALWAYS made me feel special and I felt nothing was out of her wheelhouse. Day of event- I stood back, just watching the evening unfold, with a big smile and sense of calm. Thank you Karen and staff for creating an incredible evening! SPEV will be my ‘go to’ special event planning company from now on! Thanks Karen! P.S. She’s super fun to work with!

Great venue! Great staff! Great food! What an amazing event experience. From planning to execution, every step was handled professionally. Thank you Karen and the team at Scottsdale Private Event Venues for making my vision happen. Will definitely be back for the next one. FIVE STARS!
