Meet the people behind A&B that make all the magic happen! Our blog series, “5 Questions with…” introduces our team of event experts. Today’s post features our owners, Dan and Malcolm Sebal. Since taking over the family business from their parents in 2010, they have worked hard to make A&B Vancouver’s premier event rental company.
What does your typical workday look like?
Dan: I am in and out of the office all day in between fielding calls and keeping brides and clients calm and happy.
Malcolm: Trying not to panic! This is much easier now with our all-star staff.
What are some of your favourite events that you have worked on?
Dan: Diner en Blanc. 2016 had us building the largest onsite kitchen of any event we’ve ever worked on.
Malcolm: A wedding that took place right at the far end of Canada Place. It was logistically very challenging but turned out perfect!
What are some new rental items that you are coveting right now?
Malcolm: Harvest tables and our new commercial fridges.
Finish this sentence. They key to a successful event is…
Malcolm: Prep, prep, prep, then relax
If you had an unlimited budget to plan the ultimate event of your dreams, what kind of party would you throw?
Dan: A carnival themed party for my kids with all of their favourite food, games, and pony rides.
Malcolm: A private outdoor concert with Pearl Jam and The Who on a small Gulf Island accessible only by helicopter or seaplane for 500 of our closest clients, suppliers, family, and friends with unlimited booze and food by Anthony Bourdain!
