Hear what people are saying about us...
“I would like to express to you how wonderful it has been working with you over the years. You are truly a seasoned pro and it has been an honour to partner with you on the many Executive Advisory Councils and President’s Councils over the years.
I suppose a testament to your professionalism was our first meeting in 2001 in Whistler, Canada during the September 11th terrorist attacks. The way you handled each customer individually with personal attention, respect, and care was to be commended. It was certainly an incredible feat to get your entire group home to every corner of the USA in three days! We were able to make that happen with your superb leadership. Thank you for making our team look so good!
I have always been impressed with your fearless attitude to try something new in order to create a unique, first-time experience for all your well-traveled guests. Being one of the first groups at new properties is often a very risky endeavour, especially for a planner hosting the high-calibre of clients such as yours. However, you have the flair and knowledge to foster your vendors and encourage them to rise to the occasion in meeting your expectations every time.
We appreciate your partnership immensely!”

"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Amy at Event Highlights on many occasions over the years. From the beginning of each event, she is always available for texts, calls, and emails. Whenever we have questions, she always responds promptly. She has the ability to coordinate our small or large-scale corporate and customer-facing events and conferences under pressure with the utmost professionalism and ease. For every hurdle we put in front of her, she has delivered with great creativity while always staying within budget. Amy is a consummate professional, with attention to detail second to none, and I highly recommend working with her."

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have attended many events Amy has put on. To say that the events were amazing is an understatement. From the innovative and attention grabbing invitations to the impeccable planning and organization that made getting to the events painless to the memorable events themselves, Amy’s touch was ubiquitous and perfect.
The perfect event makes the guest feel as though they are the most valued client of the hosting organization. Amy and her team made all of us who attended those events feel that way. Meaningful and appropriate gifts were laid out on our beds when we returned to our rooms at night. Everything fit with the themes of the event. Transportation to and from venues never left any of us waiting.
To pull off the aesthetic, timing, and create a “wow” factor requires intense planning and skill. It also requires creativity and talent. Amy is the best in the business. I’ve been to many, many events in my career and none could touch the events Amy and her team put on.”

Our bank has now worked with Event Highlights since 2014 on a number of events (customer advisory council retreats, national and regional mortgage banking conferences, company holiday parties and specialty customer events) and Event Highlights now collaborates with several other of our national business lines on their specialty events.

"Event Highlights is the way to go if you want your event to be a success! I have worked with Amy on several events and never been disappointed. She has great ideas, plans well and does an amazing job of making it happen just the way you hoped it would. The attention to detail is outstanding. If you want a well planned and executed event Event Highlights is your best bet!"

"Amy has done a great job putting together large and small events for our company. Would highly recommend!"
"I worked with Amy for many years (since 2001). During that time, she arranged and executed many events and trips for me, both large and small. In every case, the event was planned and executed beautifully. She had great ideas and detailed planning. She anticipated almost every scenario but we could always come up with a few surprises. Even in those circumstances she was able to adjust and respond so that our clients never saw a slip. When the event included clients they always raved about the professionalism and the quality of the event.
I would recommend Amy to any organization and for any event. She will make your organization better."
Senior Vice President
Bank of America
“We have operated many programs together, including meetings, incentives, and road shows, ranging in size from groups as small as 10 people to as large as 500 people. I have witnessed Amy work through many obstacles, especially with international programs regarding permits and customs, and face even more challenges with program changes when the mortgage industry collapsed.
Not only is Amy a dedicated problem-solver, she is also an excellent communicator, and her skills have had a positive impact on our Four Seasons organization as a whole. In the pre-opening stages of Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, Amy’s feedback helped our company to understand the property from a meeting planner perspective. The hotel took her feedback and used it to make long-term capital improvements. Amy has always been a true professional and an all-around delight to work with!”
