“We have coordinated many events in our careers, but have never has as much fun seeing an event manifest itself into reality as we did with the National Kickoff. Furthermore, we’ve never had any event – large or small – go off so well. This was possible because of your dedication, commitment, flexibility, and resourcefulness. Thank you for the time, energy, talent, and kindness expended on this event. This campaign – and, by default, its national kickoff – are historic for our university. Thank you for playing a pivotal role”
- Hunter Gresham, Director of Special Events Virginia Tech
“Just a quick note to thank you for all your help to get us up and running for our May Annual Meeting – both pre-event and post-event! There are only two people in this office and we were so overrun with details, I was glad you were only a phone call away. You helped our stress level drop tremendously!”
- Laura Pynn, The Community Foundation of the New River Valley
“From the moment we began planning our retreat in July until it was over, your staff was outstanding! This is the 5th retreat I’ve hosted and this one was by far the best. Both setting up for the retreat and packing our stuff away we had expert assistance. Our meals were well prepared, nicely proportioned, and delicious. Our staff raved about the food. The accommodations were well appointed, clean and comfortable. We had a great retreat thanks to your excellent staff. Whenever I have an occasion for a meeting or conference, the Inn at VT will be my first call.”
- Betty Etzler Family Preservation Services, Inc.
