New Fire Code = Hot Deals on Event Décor and TV Set Props
Florida’s Largest Event Production Company to Hold Auction
Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 2, 2011 – On Tuesday, May 17, Florida’s largest event production company, ME Productions, is throwing open its doors for the first time in its 30 year history. This once-in-a-lifetime auction will include a treasure trove of handcrafted props, costumes, and more! The collection includes life-sized set décor used on TV shows such as Telemundo and local events including Santa’s Enchanted Forest. The collection also includes pieces used in theatre production, corporate stages, and private functions and galas.
The Broward County Fire Marshall has dictated that ME Productions greatly reduce inventory from its 30,000 sq ft warehouse in order to comply with new county fire codes. In response, the company has rented the adjoining building, formerly City Furniture, in preparation for the auction of a lifetime! The empty space is now a showroom for 30 years worth of amazing props and décor. “The array of inventory we have selected for auction is astounding!” says Hal Etkin, Founder and CEO of ME Productions. “We have tiki gods so tall they can reach the clouds, Halloween ghouls, marooned pirate ships, flapper costumes, and entire reproductions of Hollywood type sets… Anything our clients have dreamed of, we have created and collected over the years.”
The amazing array of inventory also includes floral centerpiece stands, castles, scenic panels and high end entertainment gear including lights, sound equipment, and seating arrangements. Even more, the décor for weddings, quinces, mitzvahs and private themed parties is seemingly endless!
The auction welcomes industry buyers and individuals alike. Hotels, restaurants, country clubs, florists, theatres, non-profits, and other event production houses and business are especially encouraged to view ME Productions array of inventory.
