About Us


About Us

Welcome to Glow the Event Store! What began as a small sign business 21 years ago has evolved into the only large-scale event supply company of its kind in Nova Scotia. With our new 35,000 square foot building and showroom located in Dartmouth, along with a Sydney franchise, we continue to grow like crazy!

Our Products

In addition to our signature signs, our brand includes a bustling retail line and stunning showroom featuring our luxurious linens, chic furniture and thousands of other decor and lighting rentals for weddings, corporate events and fundraisers. We offer more games and inflatable amusements than any other business east of Montreal, along with three of Halifax’s biggest Halloween stores.

Our Community

Whatever events are happening in our community and across the province and beyond, odds are we’re a part of it somehow. We respect our competitors and work with them to meet difficult challenges, because ultimately that’s what Glow does: we work non-stop to deliver on our promise of superior customer service, and we provide unique and exciting party ideas and supplies to our clients, as they plan events – whether big or small. We enjoy a challenge, and take pride in being a local company that cares about our community and providing employment and growth opportunities here at home.

Our People

On January 25th, I was honoured to be presented with the Business Leader of the Year Award (Gold) at the Halifax Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Awards.  This prestigious award truly marked the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication from our incredible team, as well as the continued support from our clients and the community of which we’re so proud to be a part.

Today, we have an inventory bursting at the seams with high-quality products, and we’re proud of the accomplishments of our youthful, vibrant and motivated workforce. Our team consists of more than 150 staff during our busiest seasons. Our strength is in the people we employ, and our products and services bring smiles to the faces of a variety of age groups every year.

Our Commitment

We pride ourselves on offering the right products and services to our clients, and are uncompromising in our standards for quality and safety. With every day we spend in the event business, the more passionate we become about our industry and the clients we serve. We are thrilled for what lies ahead at Glow the Event Store and look forward to bringing your event dreams to life!
