"I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your assistance as we planned for our LES Annual Meeting in Vancouver. Maria, it was a thrill to finally meet you after all the months of working together!
I can honestly share with both of you, that both the Opening Reception and Gala were wonderful successes! Your guidance on choosing decor and entertainment were outstanding, and sticking to our budget, was incredibly valuable! Both rooms looked spectacular! ... What a fabulous show, and many commented on what great entertainment we had!
My applause to you, and all those concerned from Venue West who truly assisted us in having a successful meeting!"

"The Venue West tool was recommended to us, and after reaching out to them it quickly became apparent that their tool was the best fit for our event and that their staff was experienced and helpful. Throughout the site build, the testing, the continuous adjustments, the staff training, the delegate registrations, the customer service, and the onsite registrations, both the tool and the team helped us accomplish our tasks and run a successful event.
The CaGBC Conference earned positive feedback from our delegates regarding the new tool. Venue West’s robust system and advanced reporting features worked well and were easy for us to use. The customized site with specific fields and their excellent customer service and assistance led to the successful delivery of our complex registration process.
We strongly recommend the Venue West registration tool and their knowledgeable team."

"On behalf of all of us, as well as our delegates, I wanted to thank and congratulate you on a terrific SIU Night. Your creativity and professionalism, along with the able support of all your suppliers, colleagues and partners, delivered a great event that was appreciated by all. People were in a very upbeat mood and enjoyed the games, the photo ops, the food and drink, and the musical offerings. I think it’s quite safe to say that a good time was had by all.
So from our collective SIU heart, thank you very much indeed, and best wishes for success in all your future endeavours."

“It is my pleasure to provide a letter of support to Venue West for the services they provided for the registration of the 7th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2011), that expects to attract up to 3000 delegates…from 70 countries…The staff at Venue West was approachable and offered good support and creative solutions to providing custom aspects to the registration system where necessary… As the Event Manager, I had authority to access the database for ICIAM 2011, which provided me real time reporting and database management capabilities. This is essential for budget and delegate management.
I would not hesitate to use Venue West again, or to recommend them for registration services of events similar in scope to ICIAM 2011.”

"AAPM was given a last-minute directive from our Board of Directors to plan an evening social event for 2,800 guests. We had eight months to plan the event in Vancouver, and had no ideas for venues or entertainment. You guys really pulled it off! You were so right about so many decisions, and managed the event expertly.
We've had only positive feedback on the event. The only drawback is that now our attendees expect this level of excellence every year."

This was the first time we handed over tour registration to someone else AND did online tour registration, and your system worked great. Thanks for making that experience so positive."
