Though the space is beautiful, it is the staff that truly sets the Backstage Event Center apart. From helping sort of out logistics to providing delicious food and friendly service, the team at the Center makes you feel like your event is the most important one they’ve ever hosted.

They’re easy to work with, accommodating, patient and willing to help you think outside the box in terms of setup, menu and use of the space in order to create an impressive event. I do programs and events all over the city and by far, the Backstage Event Center is my favorite place to go.

The space is flexible to suit to your event needs and offers a wonderful balcony overlooking the Aronoff Center. I highly recommend the Backstage Event Center for your next event!

The location is in a very nice entertainment district and very convenient for out of town guests with a variety of nice hotels within walking distance. Kelly Schneider has been our Event Manager and such a pleasure to work with along with all the other staff members.

She is very accommodating to all our needs so much so that if she sees me look around the room and suddenly she appears by my side asking how she can help. I was previously a restaurant Manager of a fine dining French restaurant in S. FL. so I’m aware of all the many details in planning for such an event. Every request has been met beyond expectations.

All of your efforts in the details do not go unnoticed Kelly, from the dining selections, room presentation, sound system, music, table seating and set up to all our special requests…fabulous.

We are looking forward to many more memorable events in the future.

Kind regards.
