the best events person that I have ever had the pleasure to work
with. Not only is Candy a
strategic thinker, helping to match the event strategy with the overall
marketing strategy, she saves money as she does it! I have used Candy?s services at
several companies. The most
memorable one is where we executed a show strategy that had a direct
effect on Intel purchasing the startup company we were working together
on for $500m in cash. Candy
is also exceptionally well-networked and can often make miracles happen,
sometimes within hours.
There is none better.

I want to
provide a reference for Candy Adams? trade show and event management
services. Candy has worked
with me personally on an Executive Lunch Series where we hold 20 to 30
events annually at locations in major cities across the country. Candy is always extremely
thorough in her work, often uncovering details that I may have neglected
to fully think through. She
is very responsive from both email and phone and she always thinks and
acts in terms of the overall goal to deliver an outstanding event
instead of just following through on the specific actions I may have
to say, I would highly recommend Candy Adams if I needed help in
planning or executing an event.
