The KiP Group is the perfect place to create and manage your special productions and events.

“When Louis Vuitton officials came knocking on Palm Springs’ door looking for a unique – but fashionable enough – venue to host a runway show, it was Richard ‘Kip’ Serafin, owner of The Kip Group and Locations 760, who helped connect them with the former home of Bob and Delores Hope.”
