Tabletop Design Challenge
CRA Ontario has once again taken advantage of all the great expertise in Ontario’s party and event rental industry to host the Tabletop Design Challenge. Ontario’s party rental stores are hotbeds of talent when it comes to choosing colours and creative centrepiece designs to set just the right tone at an event, and the CRA Ontario banquet is the place where they can show it off. Member stores wishing to participate can download an entry form at The winner will be profiled in and upcoming issue of Canadian Rental Service.

The CRA Ontario will recognize excellence in the rental industry with its traditional awards presentation. Nominations for awards are open at Awards will be handed out for:

  • Image Award – General Tool/Construction
  • Image and Innovation Award – Party and Special Event
  • Rental Professional of the Year
  • Supplier of the Year

Entertainment at the banquet will be provided by Mat Gauthier, an impressionist singer with a truly remarkable range of voices and tones. In his online promo video he swings effortlessly between Tina Turner, Rick Astley, David Lee Roth, Neil Diamond, John Fogerty and many, many more. Plus he’s funny.

Of course, the banquet will have its usual collection of prize draws and the 50/50 ticket raffle, giving members a chance to go home with more than they brought in.
