Markey's Selected as Exclusive Provider at Pearl

SAN ANTONIO, TX – Markey’s Rental & Staging has been named exclusive audiovisual provider at Pearl, San Antonio’s popular cultural, culinary and special event destination. Venue space is anchored by the Stable, the 5,500 square foot ballroom for business, social and non-profit events. Pearl Park, Parkito and the River Amphitheater round out the current venue options where public events occur all year long and will also be supported by Markey’s. Eddie Wallace has been named Markey’s director of event technology at Pearl.

“Markey’s is celebrating 60 years of audiovisual excellence in 2019. In Texas, we have experienced tremendous growth in the last 12 months with the expansion of our branch office/warehouse in Kyle and now adding Pearl to list of Texas in-house properties which also includes the JW Marriott Austin and the Westin Austin Downtown. This new, multi-year contract with Pearl strategically accelerates our growth in this city and our reach in Texas,” said Christa Scannell, Director of the Texas Branch Office and Business Development.

“The commitment to customer service and proof of delivery on that service was the difference maker in our decision to select Markey’s. Their team has already demonstrated great enthusiasm for our clients and our culture at Pearl. We feel Markey’s values are in perfect alignment with our own. We are excited to partner with them,” said Mesha Millsap, Chief Accounting & Operations Officer.

Markey’s recently installed new technology upgrading the house projection equipment in the Stable featuring the latest in LED, energy efficient projection and larger screens to support and improve presentations, event branding and messaging, and video playback. “Enriching the experience of the guests attending events at the Stable is one way Markey’s wants to make our mark with this new, exciting relationship,” said Scannell.
