The first time I sat down with Wayne and Charlie from Marquee I knew this was the partnership I was looking for. He more we spoke, the more confident I became in the potential of my own event.
The Permitting process, city approvals, liquor licensing, vendor needs, site services, emergency plans, just to name a few of the important items requiring detailed attention would have been impossible to handle without the help of the devoted staff from Marquee.
