One word...AMAZING!!! I first heard of NextArts Audio Visual Lighting Rentals & Services in 2011 and have been in love with them ever since

From the very beginning NextArts was amazing. They were extremely responsive to calls and emails, and really made sure to customize our event to our preferences. On the day of the event, they showed up on time, and were super professional.
NextArts is an incredible partner to us and always exudes professionalism and knowledge for our clients. From pre-planning to execution and everything in between, their sales team and operations team work seamlessly together to ensure that no detail is left unturned or unaddressed. They are up to date with trending audio/visual products and styles and they offer consultative advice throughout the planning process in a timely manner. It’s great knowing that we can leave the production up to these experts and focus on other important aspects of our events.

NextArts Audio Visual Lighting Rentals & Services not only provides quality service with the most current products, but they go above and beyond! I've never had a meeting or an event in which NextArts didn't have extra gear - for the 'just in case' situations. I appreciate that the team at NextArts is current (and often ahead of the curve) with trends in the industry and regularly present updated gear and creative options to my company!

Highly Recommend

It was a pleasure working with NextArts Audio Visual Lighting. They were very accommodating, professional, responsive and they delivered a beautiful product. I would recommend them to enhance any venue!

NextArts brought to life the wedding of our dreams. They was very helpful in picking the right light color and feel we wanted. When I walked into the ballroom the day of the wedding I was blown away. I was definitely nervous because of course you want it to be perfect and NextArts made it incredible simple and easy and of course perfect!

This company is fantastic! The lighting at my wedding reception was absolutely amazing. NextArts made my imagination come to life in the ballroom! It was gorgeous, well worth the price. NextArts was very easy to work with and did everything I asked for. AMAZING!!

I don't normally score a company so high but the NextArts team was terriffic!!!

NextArts Audio Visual Lighting Rentals & Services provided fantastic drapery and lighting to complete the decor for my wedding. They were very professional, and it was exactly what I asked for.

I actually cried when I walked into the room! That’s how pleased I was with the work done the NextArts team. The great thing about NextArts, is that he were very responsive to my emails. I pretty much planned my entire wedding via email, so this was of extreme importance to me. I was also amazed at what I could get in my budget.

The guys at NextArts explained to me that it didn’t take a lot to make a room beautiful and they were absolutely correct. The backdrop, drapery and lights were perfect. Oh but the best part was the color. I wanted a very particular green color for the event, and they were able to adjust the colors and they were absolutely beautiful. My husband doesn’t like color I chose, but he was pleased with the décor as well. I think he was just happy that I was so happy.

I would definitely recommend NextArts for any event!!
