When you book your event at the Redd, you can expect a dedicated event professional to work with you throughout the planning and logistics process, from contracting to execution. On the day of your event, a venue coordinator will be on-site for the full duration of your contracted time to ensure all building and set-up related questions are answered. We do recommend hiring a professional coordinator or planner to manage vendors, decor/installations, and run of show, and we’re happy to provide recommendations for these services. In addition to your logistics and venue coordinators, a full suite of rental furniture is included with your rental:


350 chairs
35 60” round tables (seating up to 10)
10 36” bistro tables
Board room table and chairs
Lighting packages
