• FormSet's Modular Walls Transform Any Space from Dull to Amazing

    FROM THE Summer 2016 ISSUE

A one-stop shop for all of your special events, FormSet is a modular wall design system created specifically for the special events industry. Started in 2014 by company president Jeff Guberman, FormSet has quickly become a household name in the industry, priding itself in offering a rental design system that gives clients the ability to easily design their own backdrops, screen surrounds, columns and archways with the free Design Your Own web-based app.

Teaming up with Quest Drape, the exclusive national distributor, FormSet has also established itself as a new solution provider in the A/V industry with clients like PSAV, who use the product for front and rear projection screen and monitor surrounds.

“At FormSet we measure our success by how well we help our clients achieve their objectives and by how far we exceeded their expectations,” explains Stan Szpilka, general manager. Between political fundraisers, product launches, corporate events and galas, it’s hard to pick just one to name “most memorable,” however a sponsorship with the ISES New Jersey North and NACE NJ Chapters in December 2015—where the working scenic fabrication shop was temporarily transformed into a glamorous event space—is up there for Szpilka.

Get ready for fall with this seasonally appropriate cocktail. Corgi Spirits, an independent small-batch distillery located in Jersey City, has hosted a variety of private events including corporate parties; catering is BYO.
