about automätik

automätik is an award-winning, certified National Women Business Owners corporation specializing in research, consultation, instructional design, event design and management, graphic design, digital/interactive design, event production, and facilitation management/coaching.

We invite you to get to know us, and how we may support your journey...

History

automätik was founded in 1990 by CEO Kathy Sweet and President Dave Sweet with the creed: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” Over the years, automätik has been internationally recognized as one of the best, most creative, and most innovative event design companies in the automotive industry.

As a full-service “Tier One” event design and training provider for the OEM automotive industry, automätik has had the honor of helping to design and/or produce over 150 unique product launch, press, consumer marketing, or sales/service training initiatives.

With offices in Tempe, AZ, Los Angeles, CA, and New York/New Jersey, automätik has the capacity to provide unmatched in-house creative, technical, and logistical services to OEM automotive and consumer product clients worldwide.
