ABOUT 14TENN: our story

Doing things the way they have always been done is just not our thing. In fact, it’s the opposite. 828 Venue Management Company was started from a personal understanding that the events industry needed a little shaking up; that there could be a better way to create unique experiences without food and beverage minimums, exclusive vendor lists, and limited rental windows.

We have come a long way from our first event hosted in 2014, and are just as comfortable turning an industry upside down as we are stacking chairs at the end of a long night. Whatever needs to get done, we get it done.

The adage that no two days are alike is without a doubt true for us, and we welcome such change, creativity and diversity. But we also know that with pushing boundaries comes hiccups and challenges that we embrace head-on, together. We always have each other’s backs. While all else is important, at our core, we are always seeking to be good humans — to each other, to our clients, to our partners, and to our community. And to our clients, you are at the heart of what we do and why we do it. Our passion is to create unique and memorable experiences for all that walk through our doors.

That’s the 828 Way – live it with us.

You set the date. We’ll help you dream, create and celebrate.
