Events On The Move > Testimonials

Your team made this process wonderfully easy for me!

Lori Banks, Program & Event Coordinator, Manulife Investments

“It gives me considerable pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Paul Griggs and the Events On The Move team. We have known Paul for almost 2 years and from the beginning we have been most satisfied with his efforts on our behalf and with our clients.

When we began working with Paul we hosted 2 Job Fairs (up to 125 exhibitors per event), per year. We now hold 12 annually from Vancouver to St. John’s in Canada and as far south as Texas in the U.S. We use Paul’s team for all of these events and don’t plan any other involvement.

His people are courteous and they care for our exhibitors and that is what matters to us. When there is an issue it gets Paul’s personal attention and isn’t dropped into the vacuum of company staffing. The response is immediate.

We look to expand in the future and it will be with Paul and Events On The Move. I invite any direct contact with any specific questions. Frankly, if I can help Paul I want to do so, since he has helped my company grow.”

Kenneth Marskell, President – The Marskell Group Health Career Job Fair

“On behalf of PGI, San Francisco I want to thank you and your team. Your company came highly recommended by our sister office, PGI Vancouver and you have lived up to the recommendation.

We only had weeks to prepare for the first half of a 32 city road show. In the sales process, your team was very flexible. Operationally, your team has exceeded expectations. Events on the Move become a true member of the team in preparing for the event, ensuring communication and providing clear direction from the team.

We definitely look forward to working with Events on the Move on projects in the future. Thank you again.”

Jennifer Linale Project Manager PGI, San Francisco

As you know, each congress is unique and brings about different challenges.  Being able to count on reliable collaborators is imperative in the success of an event.

The HFC2011 Conference that took place has been a success.  We would like to thank you as well as all your team for your great work, professionalism and your attention to details; it was a pleasure working with you.

Isabelle Desloges, Project Manager, JPdL International

“Thank you for your part in making the 50th Annual International Downtown Association’s Annual Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia such a great success! We achieved our largest attendance to date with over 900 registrants, and the attractiveness of Vancouver as a destination was a significant contributing factor.

While we are an international association, a majority of our members are from the United States. The shipping of materials for not only us, but also for the participants of our conference and trade show can be one of the biggest challenges of holding an event in Canada. Working with a good customs broker is vital.

We appreciate the quality of the service you provided. You and your staff are very knowledgeable about the shipping and customs industry, and I appreciate your willingness to spend extra time sharing your knowledge with me. I asked a lot of questions, and you and your team were always very helpful. Your one-on-one work and follow up directly with the participants of the event saved us tremendous time and effort. There were very few on-site problems, and all of which you resolved effectively and quickly.

Overall, it was a true pleasure to be able turn this aspect of our event over to you and to trust that everything would go smoothly. I would recommend your company to other associations and believe that they will also have a very positive experience.”

Jill M. Frick, Education and Professional Development Director – 50th Annual International Downtown Association – Annual Conference

“I wanted to take a moment to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with you and Events on the Move for our Women of Faith event in Vancouver. I have very limited experience with customs but found your process quite painless. Thank you for walking us through the steps and taking care of so many of the details. Although I was not on site, my associates spoke highly of their experience in Vancouver as well. I look forward to working with you again in the future.”

Loretta Cannon Product Manager – Women of Faith, Inc.

Thank you so much for all of your help throughout the Conference.  Your staff was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and “hands on” throughout the Conference.  Please extend my gratitude to your team. Thank you again!

Jessica Jakobson, Event Coordinator, Women Presidents’ Organization

“First, I would like to Thank You for the EXCELLENT service we received from Events On The Move this year. Ever since I took on the position in September, I was a bit doubtful of my ability to have things run smoothly, I would have to give you both credit for being patient and helping me through the difficult situations I came across.

I look forward to working with you both next year!”

Ethel Stubberfield, Executive Assistant Client Services – AMN Healthcare, Inc.

“The Society for Range Management 2006 Annual Meeting Planning Committee thanks both of you for your valuable assistance in making our Vancouver experience enjoyable and trouble-free. Pre-meeting information you provided helped us educate our members and Trade Show vendors about Customs requirements in both directions. On-site assistance greatly facilitated transporting materials in and out of country. We have been very pleased with your assistance throughout the planning phase and during the meeting itself.”

Michael Borman, Local Arrangements Co-chair – The Society for Range Management Annual Meeting

“I wanted to send you a note to say thanks for your assistance with shipping our goods to Toronto in June. It was the first time we have used your service and it was a tremendous help. Since our trip to Toronto we have booked other shows and used companies similar to yours. It has been quite a learning experience to say the least. I did not realize how accommodating your company was until I tried to use a different company and it has been a full time job just to get through the paper work.

Thanks again for your help in making our job as recruiters much easier. I look forward to working with your company again on our future trips to Canada.”

Anne Howard, Hospital Recruiter – Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System
Why use a customs Broker?
Any time a shipment – large or small – is being shipped in Canada, a customs broker can be used. Customs brokers will ensure that duties and taxes are not applied to the shipment when appropriate. They will also ensure your documentation is prepared properly and streamline the process of clearing customs.
