They sent me various options and quotes based on my specific needs and brief and I simply chose the one for me. It’s as easy as that and because of their expertise in driving the best rates, not only am I saving time and effort but also money.
Function Fixers make everything easier, taking away the often frustrating task of contacting and being on top of various venues for quotes, to finding restaurants as well as being on top of billing and any random queries an EA receives.
