Here at Ramada Topeka, Downtown Hotel & Convention Center we care about the community as well as our guests that are staying with us. Through that and our networks we have come up with some of our most preferred vendors in Topeka. These are the local businesses that we have developed a great partnership and enjoy working with every chance we get. If you are in the market for any of these, please consider them to have our mark of approval and of course let them know we sent you.

Dave’s LightingDAVESL2

With an informal beginning in 1985, Daves Lights was established for the purpose of providing production services for hire.

Dave’s Lighting is primarily a lighting production company. They provide lighting, sound, and sometimes even video, for the purpose of entertainment. They own a whole bunch of really cool production gear they use to do shows, or cross rent to someone doing a show.

Because they own the gear, they work anywhere someone will pay them to go, for any reason they can find to put their stuff to use. Not just in Topeka, not just in Kansas or the Midwest, but all across the United States. They’ve worked in schools, churches, clubs, bars, ballrooms, theaters, performing arts centers, convention centers, arenas, and festivals; indoors and outside.

They like to make their clients happy, and ultimately, want to pay them well. So, they are always expanding, to supply their clients with the kind of stuff they’re looking for. And what ties it all together….they Retail. They have a showroom. They are a dealer for some very wonderful companies who make great equipment, accessories, and expendables. They know because they use these same great brands for their production work.

With a little lite guy magic, they have been fighting the forces of darkness since 1985.
