What They’re Saying …
These excerpts are from some of the thank you notes we’ve received from our clients, producers, attendees and sponsors who attended our events.
When I tried using an automated hotel site selection website, the response I received was that no hotels were available for my event. I then called CEM and immediately was presented with viable hotel options, including ones the automated system couldn’t locate. I plan to use CEM for all our future events.
– President, Association
Since working with CEM over the last two years, we’ve saved over $30,000. In addition, CEM was able to negotiate and amend a contract mitigating a $7000 penalty. CEM has been instrumental in advising us on what properties to use, which ones to avoid, and amending signed contacts to our financial benefit. CEM has strong relationships in the hospitality industry, which enables us to go to better quality destinations for the same budget dollar.
– Marketing Manager, Financial Group
CEM willingly adds the value that is necessary to make our trip high end and memorable. Customizing trips is not inexpensive, but CEM goes the extra mile to make sure we are getting the best price available. They not only negotiate on the front end but continue to do so after the event – this is a ‘stand out’ feature of CEM that will keep me coming back.
– Vice President, Insurance Company
CEM continually exceeds my expectations. Everyone goes above and beyond to make sure the needs of our entire group are met. They do a fantastic job assisting with resort selection, site tours, etc. They take the time to get to know you and your group to ensure that the trip is one of a kind.
– Marketing Director, Financial Group
Anyone that hasn’t worked with CEM for their past events should definitely utilize their help and services for all of their future endeavors. You’ll be so glad you did!
– Director of Operations, Marketing Organization
After many months of searching various destinations and hotel properties, we were finally able to contract a number of meetings. CEM provided invaluable assistance as it relates to destination and property research; concession and contract negotiations; and meeting planning expertise. Being a 'one-man show,’ CEM saved me countless hours of research and negotiations - I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you for your professionalism, service oriented and 'can do' attitude. We are well on our way to facilitating successful meetings and I look forward to continuing our working relationship in the near future. Thank you!
– Sr. Sales Promotion Specialist – Insurance Company
- I would highly recommend your services to anyone in need of professional promotions and / or event management. Your commitment to quality is an assurance of success.
- CEM did a great job in negotiating a multi-year contract with our convention hotel. The attention to all the small details within the contract was remarkable and the manner in which the organization negotiated such outstanding conference room rates was fantastic.
– Senior Vice President, Media Publication
- I have a lot of respect for your group and have been most impressed with how you folks operate – not just leading up to the event, but at the event itself. You certainly took worry off my plate as far as how things operate at the meeting. I could concentrate on content while your organization handled all the detail stuff and handled it extremely well.
– Executive Vice President – Leading Publisher
- I know of no meeting planner or meeting planning company that creates the experience that your team does for our meetings and incentive trips. Each event is made special by the way CEM staff treats our attendees, the creative touches that are suggested, the highest level of customer service is provided, as well as the professionalism in crafting each event.
– President, Financial Marketing Organization
- Huge thanks to each of you for making it a wonderful event and making life easy on us this year. We had several exhibitors comment on how much easier it was this year to take part in our Seminar and I want to echo that. That is in no small part to you making it easier for us. So thanks again, it was a joy. I went into the conference feeling a little uneasy because it was much easier getting ready for it compared to previous years. I just knew we were forgetting something. I soon learned it really was easier because CEM had taken care of so many details that I didn’t have to be concerned.”
– Editor – Leading Media Organization
- You and your staff were both professional and efficient and certainly made the event enjoyable and trouble free. Many of our vendors commented on the professional manner in which they were treated; a tribute to us, in making the choice to hire your agency.
– Manufacturing Co.
- We greatly appreciate the fantastic job you and your staff did on our behalf before, during and after our trip. You stayed within budget, and truly created for all of us – a trip of a lifetime.
– Insurance / Financial
- I want to thank you for what a great job you did and how easy you made it for the presenters to have their materials in the right place, at the right time. Great job! I look forward to participating in the future.
– Event Sponsor
- I just wanted to thank you again for the great job that you did in Las Vegas. I know how much time and work goes into such a trip and it is especially successful when you make it look easy!
- CEM is an excellent resource for our company’s event planning needs, particularly because they provide real value in everything they do and maximize our limited event budget. The team at CEM manages our annual sales incentive trip with attention to every detail and has a very strong customer-service orientation.”
