It’s already on-site, stocked with paper goods and cleaned, and maintenance-free (with real flushing toilets and heating/cooling settings to choose from!)

And when you’re ready, simply turn on the microphone and you’re ready for announcements and speeches! Rent this speaker and mike set for your event for a flat rate of $120.00!
