WHO WE ARE
WHO WE ARE
Studio46 Media was started by the Davis H. Elliot Company, Inc. after identifying a need for storytellers and creatives to help write their narrative and share their message with their employees and customers.
Since then, Studio46 Media has expanded to provide a number of creative and live & virtual event services throughout the country, creating content for companies and organizations across multiple industries.
We understand business, and most importantly, we understand YOUR business and YOUR industry. We have seen how creative assets and world-class events can create culture and win favor with employees, customers, and business partners within our parent organization.
We are excited to help share what we’ve learned with you.
