Jazz Up Your Events Facility

Hosting special events and meetings at your facility, from weddings and concerts to business meetings and classes, can bring in more revenue. But if you really want to attract people to your event offerings, you need to be sure you have the right aesthetic.

Q: We have an older facility, and the furnishings for events are not attractive. How can we update our center to provide an extraordinary look?

A: You don't need to break the bank to upgrade your event facility's look. Small, simple changes can make a huge difference.

For example, you can find aluminum linenless tables with a beautiful finish on top that is attractive and contemporary. You won't even need linens to give your event space an eye-catching, beautiful new look. The finish of aluminum with randomly sanded swirls etched into the surface is even available in multiple colors, so you can easily find a look to fit your facility.

If you want a more "finished" look, you can pair the table with spandex skirts. These colorful spandex skirts will complement the beautiful tabletops, giving your event space a polished look.

Q: We'd love to update our furnishings, but we also need to adhere to our organization's mission to use green products.

A: Aluminum is one of the most recycled materials available, so if you go with aluminum tables, you'll be purchasing a sustainable product. Some tables contain as much as 85 percent recycled content. The tables will also outlast other materials. When the time comes to replace them, you'll be glad to know they're also recyclable.
