Long Ago and Far Away . . . oops – wrong story. It wasn’t a “Dark and Stormy Night” either. The real Premiere Events Story begins very differently ! Page One shows a 12,000 square foot sparsely furnished and lightly inventoried South Austin warehouse and showroom established in November, 2000. The first chapter reveals our first tag line, “Everything You Need to Celebrate Any Event or Occasion, including the gift and the bag to put It In”. It includes a random collection of disposable paper products, bounce houses and kids games, along with basic rental options geared toward backyard parties and simple family gatherings.
Flash forward 100 pages or so, to our 2010 10th anniversary. Premiere has become a full-fledged rental product and services provider. The original showroom / warehouse footprint has doubled, and doubled again in the intervening years. Premiere is gaining traction and picking up speed. Establishing a reputation for both product selection and customer service excellence, the company is thriving. Premiere has recently acquired a former competitor, Premiere Tents and Events, and expanded its tenting inventory and expertise.
It’s 2015, and we’re rolling! We’ve taken our place as a recognized leader in the Central Texas rental market, and gained national recognition for the quality of our work and the character of our team. We’ve carved out our niche as a preferred provider for the Capital City’s catering community and event planning professionals. Wedding couples and other event holders are regularly choosing to do business with Premiere, and encouraging their friends and neighbors to do the same. We’re supporting philanthropic causes that resonate with us, and “doing good” for a variety of charitable causes. Perhaps it’s Karma . . . and our company is celebrating its 15th consecutive revenue growth year.
2020, our 20th Anniversary year, and the events world may never be the same. Instead of the grand anniversary celebration we’d planned, we’re hosting a zoom event for a hundred of so of our closest friends and associates. For the first time in our recorded history, we won’t have a better year, revenue wise, than we did before. But ours is a story of resilience and hope – of beating the odds and overcoming adversity. Of learning from experience – all experience. Nothing can hold us back or keep us down.
We don’t know what the future holds, today, or tomorrow – next month or next year or five years down the road, when, if all goes according to plan, we’re preparing to celebrate 25 glorious years as a successful, respected event rental product and services provider. We do know that we’ll continue to be a contributing member of the Special Events Community, and that we’ll continue to earn our customer’s business – and their appreciation – each and every day. That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it!
