The Entertainment Department named in Top Ten of Atlanta audiovisual rental and staging companies!

We are proud to announce The Entertainment Department was recently included in the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “Book of Lists” as a top audiovisual rental and staging company. While  based in Lithia Springs, Ga., The Entertainment Department has earned its reputation producing high profile corporate events and concerts across the country.

“We got our start here in Atlanta and continue to do some really great work for our corporate, entertainment and travel and tourism clients in Georgia,” said Bobby McDonald, the guy who started it all back in 2009. “It’s humbling and exciting to see how our growing business stacks up here in Atlanta. I’m really proud of our top notch team and thankful for our repeat clients who allow us to be creative and do what we love everyday.”

While you may not see The Entertainment Department’s name on the front end, the “magic” that they do backstage is what drives a lot of the great experiences you may see whenever you’re out and about in Atlanta. Whether you’re out to shop, attend a conference at a major Atlanta hotel, or enjoy a holiday-themed event at one of the city’s entertainment venues—there’s a good chance The Entertainment Department had a hand in making an impression on the audience!
