RGP founder, Randy Glasgow had a vision to create a viable and sustainable platform for Trinbagonian artistes and he set out to arm himself with the tools to do so. He pursued studies in event production and management at the New York University, following that with internship stints at the World Wrestling Federation and the National Football League in the United States where he cut his teeth and honed his skills working on the production of major events for these organisations 

Glasgow then returned home and with an invitation from businessman,William Munro started working with the Caribbean Prestige Foundation, producers of the Soca Monarch Competition as it was known then. Glasgow was instrumental in the national competition for soca music evolving into the International Soca Monarch attracting competitors and audiences from throughout the globe. From there Glasgow moved on to creating Randy Glagow Productions Ltd. and under his direction the well groomed
RGP team has nurtured the production outfit into the iconic entity it has become 

RGP continues to lead in the way of producing and presenting innovative, entertaining and successful shows that generates revenue for not only the artistes, but a host of other people in the downstream of the entertainment arena. As RGP continues to create new and exciting events you can look forward to great entertainment like the “Sunbern Music Festival” coming in Carnival 2015 from Randy Glasgow Productions.
