This January, Hello! Arizona produced a week of employee recognition and training events at the Phoenician Resort for a healthcare software company. The pinnacle was a Holiday Hoedown at Jokake, a historic Inn at the foot of the Camelback Mountain. Hello! put a twist on the ordinary and brought the fun with Beer Burros, Pig Races, a tethered hot air balloon, cowboy games, and Arizona inspired decor. The event was produced by Account Executive Holly Stephens, Account Manager Shannon Uribe, and Sales Coordinator Cori Brown.

We knew we’d done it right when our client sent this after the event: "I cannot thank you both enough for the tremendous amount of work you did to make our holiday hoedown a success. Our CEO said during his welcoming remarks that the party was the best event we’ve ever had, and that is in no small part because of you both. Trust me when I say that our CEO is very deliberate with his words and he doesn’t throw compliments around like that lightly." 

"I cannot go for more than a few minutes without my colleagues mentioning the party to me, saying how they were blown away by my (your!) creativity. I honestly don’t think I’ll ever be able to top this one. I wouldn’t even know where to start. When I arrived at my office this morning, there was a Kate Spade purse waiting for me, as a gift from my boss!!!! That’s on top of what I received for the employee of the year award. It’s been a whirlwind of a week, without question, the best week of my entire 19-year professional career. I hope we can stay in touch. You were both an absolute joy to work with and there is no doubt who I’ll be calling next time I have an event in Arizona!!"

Now that’s high praise! We love to hear that we helped make our meeting planner client’s life better and she even got a purse out of the deal!
