Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals to Recapitalize with EventWorks and Create Most Comprehensive Rental Company in the Southeast

Orlando, FL. – Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals (OWPR), a full-service event rental company serving the Orlando area for nearly two decades, with tailored event rentals and superior customer service, is recapitalizing with EventWorks, the Southeast’s largest event rental provider.

Headquartered in Charleston, SC, EventWorks offers clients an extensive line of highly scalable and diverse products with unparalleled service from some of the industry’s most seasoned event professionals. The strategic decision to unify the organization will span EventWorks locations across five states and eight cities, including Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Savannah, Jacksonville, Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville and Orlando.

“The decision to recapitalize with EventWorks was an easy one. It will allow us to bring tremendous resources and value to our clients,“ says Cyndi Shifrel, CEO & President of Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals. “We are excited to continue to lead and expand in Orlando as part of the EventWorks group.”

Leadership and staffing will remain the same at the EventWorks Orlando location. The name change and rebrand in the upcoming months will signify its commitment to growing its reach, resources and abilities to enhance the client experience. All inventory will also be aligned under one company’s internal rental systems, offering event planners and professionals a premium and effortless client experience.

“We look for leaders in expanding Southeastern markets and that is exactly what we found with OWPR. We are ecstatic to enter into this tremendous new market with this incredible team,” says Mike Schmidt, CEO and President of EventWorks. “Not only will this expansion increase our reach in eight locations across five states, but it will also allow us to become more accessible to our clients. Most companies cannot meet the product demands of their clients, whereas we are building a network that will allow us to meet and exceed this demand.”

With showrooms, rental resources and experienced staff spread across the Southeast, EventWorks can fulfill orders and provide onsite solutions for events hosted throughout the region. The company’s capabilities are wide-reaching, but its service is personalized, fulfilled by its local full-service locations and the EventWorks’ team’s commitment to fostering connections in each of the communities they serve.

This expansion will employ 325 team members and manage more than 375,000 square feet of warehoused equipment company-wide, supporting approximately 22,000 events each year.

As EventWorks expands its reach and capabilities across the Southeast, the company is actively seeking new members to join its valued team of event experts and leaders.
