                         Products ON Items.ItmProdId = Products.ProdIntId
WHERE        (Events.EvtTime > @Param3) AND (Events.EvtTime < @Param4) AND (TouchPoints.TPtExtId <> 'plant' AND TouchPoints.TPtExtId <> 'storage')

Try this. Comma separated descriptions

DECLARE @Val AS VARCHAR(4) = 'LOGO'

SELECT * ,     STUFF 
                ((
                SELECT CONCAT(', ' + description)
                FROM yourtable a
                WHERE ( a.ProdExtId = t.ProdExtId  AND a.evtDate = t.evtDate)
					  AND CHARINDEX(@Val,description,0) > 0
                FOR XML PATH('')
                ) ,1,2,'') 
                AS Logos
FROM 
(
	SELECT        COUNT(*) AS Expr1, evtDate, Products.ProdExtId
	FROM            Events INNER JOIN
							 Items ON Events.EvtItemId = Items.ItmIntId INNER JOIN
							 EventTypes ON Events.EvtTypeId = EventTypes.EvtTypeIntId INNER JOIN
							 TouchPoints ON Events.TouchPointId = TouchPoints.TPtIntId AND EventTypes.EvtTypeIntId = TouchPoints.TPtEvtTypeId INNER JOIN
							 Products ON Items.ItmProdId = Products.ProdIntId
	WHERE        (Events.EvtTime > @Param3) AND (Events.EvtTime < @Param4) AND (TouchPoints.TPtExtId <> 'plant' AND TouchPoints.TPtExtId <> 'storage') 			 
	GROUP BY evtDate, Products.ProdExtId
)t
ORDER BY t.evtDate, tProdExtId
