If people make the customer service difference, then it is critical for your organization to partner with a staffing provider that knows your industry and strives to make your company shine. Finding a quality provider is a rigorous process that ultimately can lead to mixed results from city to city. To remedy this problem, Marathon Special Events was established to manage the human capital challenges associated with city-wide conventions. Through our national “footprint” of event staffers, we offer a unique opportunity for your organization to start a relationship that can mature from event to event.

Contact us to learn more about how our team of professionals can help provide your attendees with a more consistent customer service driven experience. We source from a vast pool of  experienced talent and can also provide you with bi-lingual personnel if needed.


One point of contact nationwide

To streamline the staffing process, we assign a placement specialist as a single point of contact to manage your events.  Keeping a consistent relationship from event to event helps our team develop a fundamental understanding for the complexity of your unique needs and the type of staffers that “fit” your organization.

Staffers on Standby

Our “Staffers on Standby” program is a proactive approach to managing last minute employee drop off.  At no expense to your organization, we bring additional staffers to conduct training at the begining of the event.  These “flex staffers” are additional resources available during staff checkins.

Onsite Management

For events that require more than 50 employees, Marathon will provide complimentary onsite support  through the duration of your event.  This support person will ensure that your event flows smoothly .

Employer Success Stories

We are proud to say that all of Marathon’s major accounts have been loyal to our business since our inception. Twelve years ago we were able to provide one of our clients with over a hundred employees weekly. Presently, on a national basis, that same client employs over 1,500 of our employees weekly in six of their locations.

Over the years we have been guided by a simple principle: “There is no substitute for excellence.” This principle has led one of our On-Site clients to ask us to manage their entire temp and temp-to-hire staffing functions in their new 2.5 million square foot manufacturing facility in South Carolina. During the first two weeks of recruiting, we registered over 4,500 prospective applicants. Together, we created customized programs that totally eliminated their co-employment risks. Be sure to ask us how we can do the same for you!

We had been a ‘typical vendor’ with one of our clients for over 5 years handling 40% of their staffing needs, along with 4 other ‘typical vendors’ that supplied the balance. This was a labor intensive, costly and unproductive process for our client. We proposed a customized On-Site Staffing Program, became their primary staffing firm and significantly reduced their production costs. We are presently responsible for all their staffing needs. We have increased the staffing assignments from 120 to 180 and steadily reduced their labor cost.

Since the beginning of 2000, we have been consistently providing a large auction operation with a number of our associates. At the beginning of each week we supply twenty associates and by the end of the week the number will exceed two hundred associates.
