Big Shake Up in Events as Classic Tents' Howard Tabackman Moves to Anza Event Rentals

LONG BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2009) - Choura Venue Services will finish a successful year of celebrating 40 years in the hospitality and event industry on quite a high note. Not only is business up for the Southern California based event company, its multiple year company transformation (including a savvy marketing campaign that recently kicked into high gear) has now attracted one of the West Coast event industry's most well respected event talents to join its Anza Event Rentals division.

On Monday, November 16, 2009 the event rental company welcomed Howard Tabackman as their new Executive Vice President. For Ryan Choura, CEO of Choura Venue Services, this is the "icing on the cake" for a pretty extraordinary year:

"Our goal over the past couple of years has been to dramatically revamp both our company's style and the client's overall experience. Bottom line we wanted to earn the right to be heard by bringing new ideas to the event market place and execute those ideas as event experts. It has been my dream to attract the very best talent to our team, and finally we're in the place to do just that. I couldn't be more honored than to welcome Howard Tabackman and look forward to his energy and commitment to excellence."
