“Studio 919 was the ideal event space for my end of year presentation, just blocks from the Capitol, the location can’t be beat. The staff worked in overdrive to make sure that everything for the event was planned in detail and ready when I arrived. And I honestly can’t say enough about the A/V set up of Studio 919, it is fantastic to present from and brought a new level of professionalism and polish to my work.”
