The Challenge

Commonwealth Electric, a leading utility services provider for the tradeshow, convention and special event industry, hired Molera Alvarez in 2014 to help strengthen its position in a highly competitive City of Phoenix procurement process to provide event utilities services for the Phoenix Convention Center.


Molera Alvarez demonstrated to the Phoenix City Council and new City of Phoenix staff the superior event utilities services Commonwealth Electric had previously provided to the Phoenix Convention Center. We also emphasized how Commonwealth’s level of professional service and licensing requirements helped the company perform at a higher standard than its competition.


Molera Alvarez’s expertise helped Commonwealth Electric win two successive Requests for Proposal (RFP) to provide event utilities services for the Phoenix Convention Center. This gave the company the chance to bring events and trade shows like Super Bowl XLIX Fan Fest, Phoenix Comic Fest, and the NCAA Championship Fan Fest to life by providing reliable electrical services to event organizers and exhibitors.

Here’s what Commonwealth Electric had to say about how Molera Alvarez helped them stand out from the crowd and securely navigate the intimidating political landscape.

“Commonwealth Expo Electric has been a proud partner with Molera Alvarez for over 10 years. As one of Arizona’s best Government and Public Affairs firms, we have looked to Molera Alvarez to assist us in securing contracts with the City of Phoenix and have been very successful every time. The team that Jaime and Ruben have put together are true professionals with many years of experience. We have had the pleasure of working with Claude Mattox for all our projects. As a former Councilman with the City of Phoenix, Claude’s vast knowledge of politics within the City of Phoenix coupled with great relationships with key personnel made him a tremendous asset to our team which proved to be a key to our success. A true expert in his field, Claude worked tirelessly to ensure our success and was always there to offer his advice and guidance. We take great comfort in knowing that with Molera Alvarez representing us that we are truly putting our best foot forward. We look forward to many more years of successful partnership with this outstanding organization.”
