Netwoking At Its Best

October 21, 2010 Weddings Unlimited, Inc.

Last evening I attended a networking event at All Occasions Event Rental (www.AOrents.com here in Cincinnati, and have to say that it was the best ever!

Our evening began under a beautifully decorated tent with cocktails and so much yummy food, I have promised myself to skip breakfast and go lightly on the lunches for a week!  Kudos to Eat Well, Elegant Affair, Funky’s and Jeff Thomas Caterers. 

 After stuffing ourselves we were escorted to a larger tent set with comfy lounge furniture for the educational portion of the evening.  

The purpose of the open house was to showcase different tents and educate us on their different structures and the local laws governing construction on both public and private properties.

 I have to confess, I learned more than I knew about the county laws and our responsibilities as a wedding and event planner. A slide presentation included a recent tent event Weddings Unlimited and All Occasions did together; and I want to thank Robert Hughes, Director of Special Events at All Occasions for all the prep work he did for us. So many restrictions I would not have been aware of if I were the sole planner. After listening to Chief Steve Ashbrock of the Madiera-Indian Hill fire department, I find it a scary thought to think that an event could be shut down on a technicality.

Biff Gentsch, National Sales Manager for Aztec Tents and David MacArthur, National Sales Manager for Losberger US brought us up to date on the latest tent styles and just how structurally sound they are.     

Following the very informative presentation, we went back to our networking, toured the facility and ate more of the delicious desserts topped off with a speciality coffee by the Coffee Emporium.

Thanks to our host, Beth Brigger and the staff of All Occasions. A networking event at its best!
