ECUM Production Center is a company that, since 1997, works idealizing and organizing projects and events within the field of Culture, Tourism and Sport. It was founded by Guilherme Marques and by the manager and cultural producer Rita Cupertino, in Belo Horizonte.

Throughout the years, the company has created an identity marked by the excellency of its team workers, endorsed by the partnership with highly prominent professionals, giving emphasis to cultural productions.

Aiming at national and international competence, ECUM primes for a careful, meticulous and well-elaborated work, in order to ensure the full accomplishment and success of the conducted events.

We seek to always meet the needs of each and every project, in order to enhance the public and the guest’s involvement and enjoyment, without undermining the goal of each meeting.

While putting together creativity, dynamism and competence, we transform each event into a singular and memorable happening, verified by the high rate of participants’ satisfaction.

We express our gratitude to those who contributed to the successful trajectory of the ECUM Production Center and who were very important for the consolidation of our image and reputation: Rita Cupertino, Ana Luisa Bosco Freire, Regina Cupertino, Alexandra Vasconcelos, Vania Lucia da Silva, Richard Santana, Marcella Marques, Luciana Marques, Fernanda Ribeiro and João Passos.

Our project has been renewed and expanded, and today we have the participation of two new, enthusiastic employees: Eustáquio Guglielmelli and Akis Telemacu.
