Wow – what a spectacular transformation of the Vancouver Public Library Promenade. Liz Hynes (National Events Manager for Invis Canada), along with Daniel Sabina (Showmax Events), and Sara (Hummingbird Decor) created a west-coast welcome forest party, for over 350 Invis staff and friends to celebrate in.
The menu was extensive with oyster bar, eighteen (18) different canapes, 2 x 30 foot bars and more fun that you can imagine.
“On behalf of Invis, I would like to thank you both for the top notch service you and your team provided at our events. Your staff are truly professional and efficient. The food was delicious, and very appropriate for each different event you helped plan cater for us. Thank you both again, and I look forward to working with you on our future events.
