If you are an established facility or just getting started research for your business and buy commercial-grade products. Too often I hear I bought it at Wal-Mart or Costco, not a problem for the occasional home user but event planners should always buy industry items.
Do your research and find companies that cater to the event trade when looking to purchase products. Tables are just one example of when not buying wisely can cost. Commercially made products are not designed around price they are designed around long term usage and durability.
Tables may look to be the same but soon the quality come through in how it performs, wooden tables with either plastic or metal bullnose is the best, lacquered top and bottom provide a smooth surface so cloths won’t snag when put on the tables. Try to purchase the same tables so if you won’t be covering your tables they will have continuity.
