Texas-based Dos Rios has announced the recapitalization of PRO EM Party & Event Rentals—a mutually beneficial partnership for both parties.

“Dos Rios is thrilled to team up with PRO EM Party & Event Rentals,” says Kevin Benoit, partner, Dos Rios Partners. “PRO EM’s leadership position in the event rental market, strong financial performance, current partnerships in local and regional festivals as well as in professional sports and collegiate athletics allow for tremendous growth potential in the event industry and were all keys influencing Dos Rios to invest in this company.”

PRO EM's leadership will remain the same, with Amir Glogau serving as the company chairman and Brandy Castro as president and CEO.

“This recapitalization allows PRO EM to continue to grow and pursue synergistic acquisition opportunities in adjacent markets,” said Amir Glogau, chairman, PRO EM Party & Event Rentals. “We are actively looking to expand our menu of services beyond the Southwest and into other large event markets.”

“Brady Castro has served Pro EM for over 18 years and has demonstrated leadership and creative thinking in every role he has had in the company over those years,” says Glogau. “After acting as the Company’s COO for the past two years, I am excited to see Brady take the position of President and CEO to lead the company to its next peak.”

PRO EM was created as a full-service source for events of all sizes. They serve three different units, which are event management, event rentals and commercial services. The company has a 250,000 square-foot headquarters, and they offer a wide variety of services, and equipment for any event. This can include everything from security to furniture to heating and cooling units.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
