We really were in luck with a clear blue sky and sunny day for a recent Cooper River Room AV rentals and event lighting job just over the bridge in Mt. Pleasant, SC. With a panoramic view of the Ashley River as it leads south to meet the Cooper River on the tip of the Charleston Peninsula, the Cooper River Room commands one of the finest views of the Low Country’s tidal basin of all of Charleston’s event venues. Often a favorite for picture-perfect weddings and parties, the Cooper River Room is also a meeting and conference venue. Easily accessible from Patriots Point hotels and by car from downtown Charleston, the Cooper River Room is quickly becoming a favorite of event planners in both the celebration and business markets.
AV Connections was called on to provide Cooper River Room AV rentals and event lighting for a recent investor-partners meeting of the Charleston Convention and Visitors Bureau. We are pleased to serve this organization which assists most of Charleston’s businesses in one function or another with it’s various sales, support, and marketing arms. The CVB has been a strategic partner to Charleston’s business community and government in creating a city the world loves to visit for dozens of reasons. Certainly, the CVB partnership has helped to drive the four-year running Number One City in the World to Visit ranking as voted on by Conde Nast readers.
Generally, about 250 guest partners are expected for each of the CVB monthly meetings, over the past year AV Connections has provided audiovisual rentals for most of the CVB event venues. The Cooper River is one of our favorites, it was great to see it used for meetings. So often we are in this room or in a tent on the great lawn installing wedding lighting designs. This was really an opportunity to showcase the site for another purpose and keep us all mindful that the Cooper River Room is not just for weddings!
The Cooper River Room is accessible by Mt. Pleasant’s wonderful Waterfront Park. We encourage you to visit this location if you are visiting us in Charleston, it is a photo-taking opportunity not to be missed and will make a great Charleston memory.
