Thanks for wanting to learn a little more about The Pro Event Shop! PES is the an online superstore for all things events. Whether you own a venue, a hall, a theatre or you are an event/wedding planner, we are the number one destination for brand new equipment. The Pro Event Shop is the sister company of Ottawa Special Events, a local rental shop in Canada's National Capital Region.
The Pro Event Shop is owned and operated by Michael Wood and Peter Gilroy, two local businessmen who cut their teeth in the music industry. For twenty years, Peter owned three of the largest recording studios in Ottawa while Michael was a touring musician. The two of them met back in 1996 when Michael was looking to record some demos for this band. Over the years, the two have ventured in and out of the entertainment and music industries and started their event rental company back in 2010.
The hardest part of starting the company was learning where to purchase all the equipment they were going to need. Where do you buy stanchions? Where do you buy pipe and drape? Where can you find the best prices on speakers, microphones, gaffer tape, BBQs, heaters, audio cables, sound mixers, professional DJ equipment, carpets, lighting and more.
Starting out of their respective homes, Ottawa Special Events now has a physical footprint of 32,000 square feet and employs 30 people in Ottawa. We are constantly adding new products to the store every day so if you can't find what you are looking for, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will find it for you. Chances are we have it, we just haven't had a chance to upload to the store yet!
Thanks again for popping by the Pro Event Shop and we look forward to serving you and all your event equipment needs!
