ShowPro of South Florida (ShowPro) is dedicated to providing top quality production services at competitive prices and developing lasting relationships with all of our clients across the country. We have installed equipment in venues from large-scale arenas to houses of worship to small conference rooms and have provided production services to clients ranging from the largest corporations and performance artists to the smallest schools. No matter the client, and whatever their production needs, ShowPro provides the utmost dedication and highest level of professionalism. Our goal is to make sure our clients can establish a world-class venue or create a captivating event while focusing on other details and leaving the production to us.
ShowPro was created from a 2017 merger between Show Productions of the Palm Beaches (established in 1992) and Griffin Theatrical Engineering (established in 2008). This allowed us to combine the experience and clients of two companies with more than 35 years of collective production professionalism. Our core team has an impressive combined experience of almost 90 years in all facets of the production field. When combined with our crew members and business partners, the expertise we can provide is unparalleled.
ShowPro is based in South Florida with our main offices in Coral Springs (just outside Fort Lauderdale). Our main client base is from Orlando to Miami to Key West. We also maintain a number of clients across the country and are able to serve any client of any type no matter their location.

Although Nick’s original passion was strictly audio based, he has gained a wealth of professional experience in all aspects of production throughout the years. Audio, lighting, video, and LED technology is constantly evolving; Nick prides himself on keeping ShowPro current with consistent professional education.
After years of freelance work, Nick completed a degree of science from Full Sail University tailored toward the production industry. After his studies, Nick dedicated 7 years to a 1,600 seat theatre in Deerfield Beach, Florida as its General Manager and Technical Director. Throughout those years, Nick continued to freelance as a Production Engineer for several companies, including Show Productions of the Palm Beaches.

Over the years, as the Vice President of Griffin Theatrical Engineering, Nick developed a working relationship with the then-owner of Show Productions of the Palm Beaches, David Imber. Nick always sought to merge GTE and ShowPro. This goal came to fruition in the 2017 merger which created ShowPro of South Florida.
