Taking the Word ‘No’ Out of Our Vocabulary
Posted on July 08 2019
It has been nearly two years since EventWorks merged with Peachtree Tents & Events, making us part of the largest event rental company in the Southeast. We now proudly serve the entire Southeastern Region with locations in Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Savannah, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Birmingham and Nashville. This merger has allowed us to create more value for our clients, build greater depth in reach and operational experience, provide larger product offerings and house the resources to undertake larger-than-life events. This step has helped our company move closer to achieving our ultimate goal: never having to say no.
This past May, we held a company-wide meeting in Atlanta to discuss ‘wins’ from the past year and set goals for the coming year. In reflecting on the past twelve months, we realized just how much we have accomplished in a short amount of time. We have been able to add one-of-a-kind rental pieces to inventories at all of our locations, by utilizing resources available at our design/build centers and by taking a standardized approach to purchasing. We have built deeper product lines that we now share across the Southeast Region. We opened a new EventWorks location in Jacksonville and moved our Savannah office to a bigger facility. We also proudly participated in executing high-caliber events, including the NFL Draft, Superbowl LIII, Music Midtown and Lifetime TV’s Live Wedding Series.
As we look forward to this next year, we hope to move closer to our goal of never turning down an opportunity. Our depth in our two most important resources, professional people and quality of product, allow us to adjust to busy seasons so that we can continue to execute high levels of service. Our clients’ needs are wide ranging and so are the sizes of their events. We enjoy loading an SUV for a small customer pick up order as much as building a tent on a hill with custom level flooring. We don’t want any event to be too big, too challenging, too large of scale or impossible for us to take on. These types of events are typically served by multiple companies to fulfill a portion of one job, which can make things complicated. By building strength in our inventory, resources and operational knowledge and skill sets, we can bring stability and consistency to the process of executing these types of events in each of our markets. Our local communities will ultimately benefit from the success of these large events and we are incredibly passionate about supporting this growth on a local level.
While we have grown to service large festivities, we still remain committed to serving any occasion, no matter the size. To maintain this commitment, we have kept all decision making at a local level, allowing us to be flexible with purchasing and meet the needs of each specific market. Our merger has added resources for growth, stability, consistency and enhanced our capabilities, but our philosophy will always be based on a ‘local presence with a regional reach’. We created this large organization to build greater value for our clients through selection, depth, and experience. We are excited about the future. We love our communities and loyal clients, and will continue building strong relationships at a local level.
We have set the bar high for the upcoming year. We will continue to build trust with our clients and support a better understanding of who we are as a collective group of local companies, by growing our resources and improving our company websites. We are extremely grateful for all of our clients and your support through this journey. We look forward to the next year with you and all that we will accomplish together.
