    City of Santa Clara’s New and Huge Ballroom

    Yesterday, hundreds of guests gathered together at the Santa Clara Convention Center to see the unveiling of their new ballroom: Mission City Ballroom. This new ballroom boasts 22,400 square feet and is very versatile with multiple configurations, whether it be an event for a meeting, dining etc.

    The Stuart Rental Company had the privilege of providing the specialty linen rentals for this amazing event.  Which also means, I had the privilege of attending this great event. Before the unveiling occurred, we got to hear from some of the people who were involved in making this happen It was quite eye opening for me to hear how much time and effort went into this. Usually, you just see the outcome, but you don’t realize how many people were involved and how much work it took.

    Two other things really struck me as I heard the speakers:

    1. This new ballroom came in under budget. Most of the time, you hear everything always goes over budget.  But kudos to the people who not only kept this project on target, but were also able to keep it under budget.
    2. This is not just some new ballroom that some random person decided they had nothing better to do with their time and money. This new ballroom, they hope, will overcome the challenging economy and bring in new customers and new revenue. I’m definitely all for anything that helps us in this economy.

    Now, on to pictures of the event. Vice Mayor, Jamie L. Matthews, had the honor of cutting the ribbon and unveiling this fabulous new ballroom. With him on the far left is Steve Van Dorn, President & CEO of the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention-Visitors Bureau, who also served as the Master of Ceremonies that night. Jennifer Sparacino, the City Manager standing to the right of the Vice Mayor, was also one of the speakers of the night.

    They definitely had the “wow” factor when they first opened the doors into this new ballroom. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

    They had many different food stations, some with their own chef cooking the yummy food. Our Crushed Iridescent Steel linens look great.

    Our Crushed Iridescent Copper linens look so good under the lighting at this food station. The food doesn’t look too bad either. 🙂
