About us


about-event-hireWow Event Hire was founded in 2004 to provide products and services that bring an extra element of fun, excitement and style to special events, both large and small. We are the largest business of our kind in Wales and employ a permanent team of 10 people.

The business has its roots in Cardiff but operates nationally. We provide services for over 600 events annually from single hire items to complete events. We are trusted suppliers to many of the premier venues in the region including Celtic Manor Resort and the St David's Hotel. Our corporate customers include well know brands from L'Oreal to Go Compare, who are joined by many local private clients who trust us for their most special occasions. 

In 2013 and 2014 we were recognised as the best venue decorator in the region. 

Creativity is at the core of what we do; many of our products are available from other suppliers but we combine them in a way that makes us unique to the market. We own all our own stock and have a 10 year track record of delivering on our promises. 

Our team operate to the highest standards and we understand that you only get one chance to create the perfect event.

Working at Celtic Manor Resort gave Ben the inspiration to set up Wow Event Hire.

While working at Celtic Manor I realised that all events, large or small, need that extra something. I wanted Wow to provide products and services that gave a sense of occasion, style and most of all an element of fun and excitement. Wow has now reached the grand old age of 10 years, the expanding team and I look forward to helping our diverse range of clients, from professional organisers, agencies and corporates to venues and private clients, create wonderful experiences for their guests and clients over the next 10 years and beyond"  Ben Marrin
