12 Black-Owned Experiential Agencies You Should Know About

Black-owned experiential agencies with extensive B2B and B2C portfolios. Featuring Beyond 8, Andrew Roby Events, W.P. Miller Special Events, and other leading firms. 

We already have extensive lists covering US experiential agencies and UK event agencies. But we noticed that there was not yet a resource that provided a dedicated list of black-owned experiential agencies anywhere on the internet.

Each of the agencies on this list are leaders in their own right, having accrued extensive portfolios that include partnering with Fortune 500 companies. However, this is far from an exhaustive list. If you have any suggestions for black-owned B2B or B2C agencies that aren’t mentioned below, you can submit them here for consideration.
