I “inherited” Nancy from a very demanding Executive Assistant who has since retired who had a reputation for being hard to please. She used Nancy for an event and was very pleased with the professionalism and personal touch Nancy gave her. I have since used Nancy for our offsite meetings for the President of Chevron Global Power and his direct reports. Needless to say these meetings must go smoothly and the success of the meeting reflects directly on me as the meeting coordinator, and the President’s Executive Assistant. We know that even well planned out events something is bound to go wrong yet Nancy is always there as your liaison and will come up with a solution. Nancy makes me successful. From the pre-planning phase – which includes the initial search for the meeting location, negotiations, logistics, and signing of the contract, Nancy is 100% involved in setting up site visits and providing her invaluable insight into which hotels will better fit your needs. Her attention to details and knowledge of hotel venues globally is invaluable. After the contract is signed Nancy assists with pre-planning issues such as meeting room logistics, sleeping room issues and catering menus. During the meeting Nancy checks with you to make sure all is going smoothly. She anticipates your needs and even though I may stress out from time to time, Nancy is always under control and quickly handles any problems I may have. Nancy is my saving grace. She makes my work so much easier and is always pleasant and professional and goes out of her way to help you have a successful event. WOW is all I can say. Nancy, thank you so much for everything!!!! You are so AWESOME!!!! I never want to lose you! Seriously, thank you so much Nancy. It means so much to me that even after the hotel contract is signed you are still available and so willing to offer your services… above and beyond! You are so awesome and I wouldn’t want to plan an event without your assistance! Adrienne Pye CAP/OM Executive Assistant Chevron Global Power 832-854-7971, email@example.com ______________________________________________________________________________________________ The Meetings Concierge is amazing. I got in contact with them exactly ONE WEEK before an event, and they found stellar hotels to choose from and options to fit our exact needs. Without their help I couldn’t have gotten it done! They are professional, timely, incredibly responsive, and an absolute joy to work with. When you need a meeting planned contact them, and there is no cost for their service! Ali Almanza, Business Support Analyst _______________________________________________________________________________________________You have taught me a lot in the past week!

You’ve been a great help. My boss was skeptical at first, but I knew using your services for the hotel search was best decision. It made his life & my life a lot easier, especially setting up the site inspections. Stay close by my side as we want to maintain that comfort level we have with you both.

I have worked with Nancy Nachman for over 15 years and in that time she has delivered a top notch service whenever called upon. There are many people in our industry who provide hotel site selection and contract negotiation services for meetings, and I haven’t come upon any service better than the Meetings Concierge. Her extensive background and experience in hotel sales coupled with years of experience on the meeting planning side provides a unique knowledge of all the quirks and sidebars of site selection and hotel contract execution. Therefore she excels at saving her clients both time and money. Nancy and Leeann work as an extension of your staff in every aspect of the sourcing transaction and provide clear, concise, and “spot on” insight on global destinations and hotels. They will make sure that your meeting is a complete success by going out of their way to help you in the first and most important aspect of the process; finding and contracting the right properties and services. With Nancy you can’t go wrong. She’s the best at what she does. Wayne M. Robinson CMP Director Field Meetings/Agency Northwestern Mutual 720 East Wisconsin Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53202 -4797 414 665 – 4064 firstname.lastname@example.org _______________________________________________________________________________________ I’ve very rarely seen a meeting planner as knowledgeable about her client’s meeting as you are. It was above and beyond of you to send a photo of her so we would recognize her to name just one instance. You truly go above and beyond to take great care of your customers who must appreciate you so much. I love all of your personal touches! Cindy Kreklow Sales Manager Omni Dallas at Park West (214) 442-2135 ______________________________________________________________________________________ PAREXEL company Global Leaders in Regulatory Information Management I started working with Nancy Nachman when I realized I had a large amount of research ahead of me for our annual user group conferences, which we hold in the United States and Europe, and when my previous company just wasn’t “cutting it.” To put it mildly, I was blown away by her knowledge, customer service and how she took care of all the details! She and Leeann saved me an incredible amount of time and everything they delivered was superior. My company has been hosting these conferences for 14 years, but I truly feel this is the first year we have found the “diamonds” all due to the Meetings Concierge…..From the destinations, hotels, dinners and sightseeing events. They are dependable, reliable and work non-stop to make sure all our needs are met. Even after the hotel contracts have been signed, Nancy is still readily available to make sure my planning is going smooth and offer any other advice along the way. I have referred to Nancy, on many occasions, as my secret weapon for conference planning! Our clients will be very well taken care of from all the pre-planning and advice from The Meetings Concierge. Nancy should be everyone’s secret event planning weapon! Julie Burgess Manager, Strategic Marketing PAREXEL Company _________________________________________________________________________________________________ I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy and Leeann since 2007 on various events, from a small intimate Board of Directors meeting to a large sales conference. They have consistently provided top notch service. From beginning to end, they are there for me and always go above and beyond my expectations. The incrediable amount of time they save me from having to call multiple hotels, wait for a return call, setup a meeting, negotiate a contract, and have follow-up conversations is priceless. They send me a summary of the top hotels with the critical details I need to make an informed decision in a timely manner. Their wealth of experience and knowledge of the industry is unrivaled. They are focused, detail-oriented, and have my best interest in mind.

I have not encountered a meeting planner that has combed though our sales contract and has been so thorough with the review of our contract. I’m almost embarrassed to say that as a Sales Manager that is fairly new to the industry, I have learned a lot through our contract negotiations together; I appreciate the insight you’ve provided from a client perspective. I have a new found respect for meeting planners, like you, who are truly looking out for the best interest of their clients during contract negotiations. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this long negotiation process and I’m looking forward to getting this contract signed for a win-win for both of us! I’m looking forward to working with you for many meetings to come! Cody cody-ann iwamoto | executive meetings manager wynn | encore 3131 las vegas blvd. south | las vegas | nv | 89109
