evo_events_logo-copy-50x50 (1)I want to take a minute to thank you on behalf of our group for the terrific job you and your company did to make our stay at the El Conquistador most memorable. From our initial contact you made me feel that our program was special and unique and that you would do everything possible to accommodate my needs…even when I didn’t quite know what my needs would ultimately be! With just a few key questions from you about what I wanted to achieve and what my budget guidelines were, you managed to offer a multitude of options. The pictures and descriptions that you provided on-line were a wonderful way for me to “shop”. Thank you also for music CD samples you graciously provided. Listening to them first-hand made my decision clear. Once we arrived and the “goods” were delivered, the service didn’t stop there. Thank you for your phone call and follow up on our last minute addition. You are truly a service oriented businessman and I appreciate your professional and upbeat attention to my incentive program. I would highly recommend your company and services to any program coming to the Caribbean. Thanks again Tim!

Greystar-50x50Hi Meghann! We got the gift bags today and LOVE them! The burlap looks great! Thanks so much!


Ohio-Contractors-Assoc-50x50 (1)Dear Tim: Thanks so much for the professional and expedient service you and your company provided me at our conference recently held in Puerto Rico. Given the short timeline I gave you and not knowing exactly what I wanted, your response, suggestions and final Puerto Rican gift package you provided was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Tim, I also appreciated the fact that we were able to provide a local theme package to our clients and within budget. Not only did I receive numerous thank you notes and compliments after they returned from Puerto Rico, but actually received a fax from one of our clients while they were still at the convention, expressing their appreciation and pleasure about the contents. Due to your ability to provide the package and coordinate the delivery to the hotel, this was truly a “one-stop shopping experience” for me and certainly minimized my time and effort in providing a gift to our clients so far away. Again thanks so much for your guidance, timeliness and overall responsiveness to us. If I ever need to provide this type of service to my clients in the Caribbean again, I will be sure to Contact you.

Dear Tim: Just a short note to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you on my two programs at the Wyndham El San Juan. Your ideas were creative, your prices competitive and your enthusiasm unmatched! I really appreciated the extras you provided: collating all of the beach bags with all of the items inside and purchasing the flipcharts for me. Those were above and beyond the call of duty, and they were most appreciated. I am bringing yet another group to Puerto Rico next year and you can be sure we will be working together again! THANKS!
