Rayne Event Tech and Lounge, formally Showtime, was founded in 2010 and is built on 20 years in the special events industry. In the beginning, Rayne was primarily a lighting company and has grown to become one of the premier, full service audio visual production companies in the Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia region. Rayne Event Tech's ability to offer multiple event services and solutions allows us to extend substantial savings to our clients in the form of discounts, time and peace of mind. Our business model is built on relationships. We don't believe in just serving our clients, but partnering with our clients. We want to feel as vested in the success of your event as you do.
