The Please Be Seated team has grown their business into a premium, innovative, and market-leading event rental company over the last 10 years. Curated Events has been focused in a very similar fashion in other markets at the same time. We are thrilled to bring our collective customers a unique product offering, backed by great service and attention to every detail. We are proud to welcome Please Be Seated into the Curated Events family.”

Mary and Paul Huddleston founded Please Be Seated 10 years ago. “When we decided to sell the business, we wanted new ownership that shared common values and would continue to deliver exceptional products and services that we had provided our clients,” Paul Huddleston said. “Joining Curated Events will be a beneficial opportunity for not only the Please Be Seated team, but clients as well, offering expanded inventory and resources.”
