Founded by national award-winning designer Barbara Bater in 1985, Penncora Productions is well known and respected in the Special Event Industry.


Barbara studied both Advertising and Marketing at Syracuse University and Fashion Design at Bennett College. Upon graduating she was employed by Smith-Langerman, an Advertising Firm in Philadelphia and New Jersey. In 1985 Penncora was formed and was awarded our first contract for Steve Wynn, creating his 1st ever Chairman's Gala at The Golden Nugget. That project was the launch of a long list of exciting special events spanning many years! Penncora has evolved over the years into a full service Event and Floral Design/Build and Installation Company.

Since 2008 we have been a WBENC, a Certified Womens Business Enterprise.  

Our 25,000 square foot facility has been located in Phoenixville, PA since 2002. At this location we house our warehouse, showroom and executive offices.
