Event Source, a special event rental supply company with offices across the Midwest, will open its first Michigan public showroom and sales office Wednesday in Ferndale.
“One result of this area’s economic upswing and consistent business growth is more events and the subsequent increased demand, not only for our rental products, but also for services from the entire events community — caterers, florists, and venue providers,” says John Bibbo Jr., president of Cleveland-based Event Source. “We are here to meet that immediate need and make events shine, which in turn reflects positively back to the city.”
Bibbo says the nearly 7,500-square-foot design center, located at 1240 Woodward Heights, will feature seasonal displays of table top items, linens, samples of dance floors, and lounge furniture. He says the center will offer space for clients to plan their events, get advice, discuss industry trends, and preview selections. Clients will have the option to pick up orders or have them delivered to the event location.
“Ferndale’s vibrant and unique business mix is the perfect place for Event Source — the community parallels our business, which fashions uniquely creative and memorable events,” says Suzanne Chandler, senior account representative at Event Source.
The company offers nearly 3,500 products with about 730,000 items in stock, including linens, 13 flatware patterns, 22 full china patterns, dinnerware and serving ware, tables and chairs, catering equipment, concession, meeting and convention items, and flooring and staging. The company has a showroom in Columbus and a sales office in Pittsburgh.
