Back to Business!

It has been a busy summer! With restrictions easing over the last few months, we have been getting more and more inquiries from people looking to make their event as memorable as possible.

Going Back To Work Has Never Felt So Good

As summer progresses and case numbers remain under control, our city has officially begun its journey to reopening. We recently stepped into Stage 3 which allowed for lower restrictions but also has paved the way for businesses to begin allowing workers to come back to the office after being apart for over a year.

End Of The Year Thoughts
