There are reasons we have client partners for decades.Here are just a few.
This turned out to be our most successful convention yet. We’ve already started to plan for our next convention and have recruited ME to lead to the charge. After our unforgettable – and amazing – experience with them the first time around, I can’t imagine ever using another planning company for our events.
CEO of Tropical Smoothie Cafe
Thank you so much for helping us put on an amazing event and for making my job so easy. The partners, customers, employees and executives are all talking about what a great event Connections was and how effortless everything seemed. Your prompt replies and resolutions to the millions of emails and calls is amazing. You are the best in the business and not only do we recognize it, but the hotel made a point to let me know that they recognize it as well.
I have never brought in planning support for an event before but the size and scope of Schneider Electric’s Innovation Summit was such that I needed the extra help. Caitlyn and Katherine were a well-oiled machine, we agreed on a course of action and determined the roles and responsibilities of our team and without fail every item on our checklist was perfectly managed. They were professional, helpful and asked many questions to ensure we were all aligned. My requests for updates and changes were always handled quickly and efficiently. I have received nothing but praise from so many of our partners on how smoothly the planning and on-site experience was.
Event Manager, Global Marketing
I have had the opportunity to work with Meeting Expectations in 3 capacities: as a member of a user group attending events put on by Meeting Expectations, as a Vice-President of the Oracle Applications User Group working with Meeting Expectations on group management, and as an executive with Oracle Corporation partnering with Meeting Expectations in driving strategic direction for Oracle user groups and events. In all three roles, I’ve found the team at Meeting Expectations to be an outstanding group of knowledgable professionals. Meeting Expectations excels in creating dynamic and exciting events as well as positive membership experiences. And, last but not least, they make the work fun for themselves and their customers. The team at Meeting Expectations has earned my highest recommendation.
I have had the privilege of working with the team at Meeting Expectations team for the past four years and it has by far been the best vendor experience I have ever had. We work on programs of varying sizes – C-level summits, executive retreats, sales kick offs, customer conferences, regional events, etc. Their ability to source and negotiate hotel contracts for me has not only created efficiencies in my everyday work but they have been able to provide incredible cost savings and increased legal protection. The team has worked onsite as an extension of our team and worked in unison with us like we are all under the same umbrella.
Meeting Expectations has become not just our management company but our partner in all of the daily functions for TUG. Without ME TUG would not be as successful as we are today, the team provides daily value between meetings, phone calls and emails. As TUG has grown so has our relationship with ME as our partner. ME also manages our conferences which have become more successful with the ME guidance and assistance provided over the years.
Thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put into helping us make the Advisor Summit so successful! From all of the assistance with housing throughout the years to coming on site, to helping us secure that emergency room block at the end… You have always been a true partner from start to finish and we feel so lucky to have you on our team.
Executive Vice President Corporate Branding & Communications
We have worked with ME for many events, and they have once again proved to be spectacular. Meeting Expectations went above and beyond our expectations to put together a tremendous Convention for our Franchisees. We met with the ME team to discuss our needs, the budget, and our vision of how we saw this event coming together. Through our collective collaboration, we brought it all to life. ME brought forth many of their own ideas and plans that made the event run smoothly, which overall led to a successful Convention. Most important, we have received outstanding feedback from our Franchisees who attended this year’s Convention. ME worked hand-in-hand with our franchisees, executives, guest speakers and Arby’s team to ensure we all had everything needed. The Arby’s team was impressed with their professionalism and ME’s “can-do” attitude. As you can see, we were thrilled with the outcome of Meeting Expectation’s service and we look forward to working with them in the near future for any upcoming events for Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc.

Meeting Expectations has proven to be a true and valued partner for Marketo. Their expertise and professionalism helped us produce and deliver the best Master’s program to date. Our incentive program hosted 150 of Marketo’s top sales Team, their significant others as well as our executive staff in Maui this past February. Both attendees and executive staff were pleased and amazed at how well the program was delivered and how well it portrayed the true essence of who Marketo is today.
I wanted to drop you a note to tell you that I truly appreciated working with you. Probably one of the areas of my responsibilities where I had the fewest issues over time was when I was working with you. So, thank you for your professionalism, your attention to Sport Clips and your ability to just make things happen. I appreciate you!
Chief Financial Officer
I am really at a loss for words as I sit here trying to share with you the greatness of your staff! Contracting with ME for our association management IS THE BEST THING that ever happened. Anything else we may have accomplished as an association or board pales by comparison.
