Chip Alyea, Owner, VP of Operations
After graduating from Rollins College in 1999, Chip spent a few years working as an Environmental Biologist, but missed the hospitality industry and soon ventured into a career as a Travel Director for some of the top meeting planning agencies. While traveling the country as a Travel Director, Chip had an idea for a company. In 2007, Chip began his first nationwide event rental venture, Cart-It, which soon added the Flipbook Creations division (which later grew to become Party Down Amusements). Chip’s ability to recognize creative ideas and solutions has helped him grow an idea into a nationwide company. His level of customer service and willingness to make each and every event unique and special has garnered him a very loyal following of clients. Chip’s hobbies are paddle boarding, snowboarding and spending time with his four children. His favorite quote is “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Albert Einstein
