When designing the program for Entrepreneur Works Presents Debbie Allen, I knew that International House Philadelphia was the perfect venue. Having attended many filmmaker and community events there, I had experienced the comfort, technical capabilities, and culture of IHP. Working with the staff on our event was an absolute breeze. They anticipated our needs, communicated often, clearly, and effectively, and provided excellent customer service! IHP is, and will continue to be, the preferred live event venue for Teaspoon & Pound Media. Tatiana Bacchus Owner/Senior Producer Teaspoon & Pound Media
