TESTIMONIALS

I have been to several industry events over the past several weeks since meetings have been coming back to life. I must say Smart Meetings at the W Hollywood was by far the best run and executed event yet. I appreciate the gourmet food, nice attention to detail, a beautiful hotel and a unique set up for the networking meetings. Your speaker was fantastic. There were several key corporate clients that I have always wanted to meet that attended your event. Thank you! I look forward to the event in August at the Hotel Del Coronado. Well done!

Suzy Kay, CMP, Regional Sales Representative, Visit Santa Barbara

 

This was a fantastic event that facilitated one of the first in-person, face to face events connecting planners and suppliers in an experience that was thoughtful, educational and extremely productive. Our resort has already received our first RFP for 700 room nights in less than one week – AMAZING!

John P. Hansen, Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa

 

Amazing event, amazing property, and always appreciate meeting fellow planners, venues, and dynamic speakers! I can source a year’s worth of events in one or two days of meeting other planners and venues. So valuable! Thank you!

Ashley Baptiste – Conferences Connect

 

I made new connections with other planners and suppliers to grow my business and deliver memorable experiences to my clients. The event is an opportunity to be inspired and get the creative juices flowing and energizing experience that can only be understood being a part of it. Anything I can say won’t make justice to the value this event has for me as a meeting and event planner.
