I had a great time at the awards ceremony produced by Debonair Corporate Events. The entire team was friendly, professional and readily available to help guests during the evening. Compared to prior years, the event was more energetic and filled with new ideas. My guests and I curated new memories and I will attend more of Debonair's events.

We used Debonair Corporate Events in the planning and execution of our 31st Annual Scholarship Ball event. It was our first time using a professional event planning service and we had some doubts about the cost-effectiveness of using this approach. Hands down this was one of the best decisions we made in terms of elevating the quality of the overall experience while remaining within our budget. Dwayne and Baldeep were super attentive to our needs and provided a customized experience that allowed us to be actively involved in the. If your intention is to host an event that reflects next level sophistication and allure, then Debonair Corporate Events is your best choice.

I really support the event that brings light to the excellence in each trade and bringing awareness to the trades and business owners in general. The hosts were entertaining and had very valuable stories and information that I will take with me into the future. The food and drinks were fantastic and overall it was a great event with even better networking opportunities. Sincerely, Ryan Lockman Red Seal Carpenter Build King Construction.
