What We Hear From You

  • “As a first timer, I truly enjoyed this event - the gatherings, meetings, connections, the great company throughout, the exchanges, conversations, the extremely funny moments… I could go on!”

    — JR, JR Travel Concepts
  • “I wanted to give a heart-felt thank you for organizing such a unique and exceptional event. I felt special from the moment I was invited to attend and the experience was simply something money could not buy. As an incentive planner these are 2 concepts I try to create for all of our attendees so it was so nice to feel that commitment as an attendee. I really enjoyed all the entire program but especially seeing old friends and meeting new ones.”

    — Kimberly S, Fiserv
  • “It was truly a pleasure to meet each of you in person and connect with so many other incredibly talented, kind, fun, and funny event planners and suppliers. Thank you for creating spaces for us to connect and ideate, and for curating experiences that will last a lifetime.”

    — Laura O, CPS
  • “I wanted to reach out to you and let you know what a wonderful time I had at the Connoisseurs Circle. It is by far the best retreat I have ever been a part of. It is so obvious how much you both love what you do because that filters into every aspect and loving detail that you created for us. I was able to make so many wonderful new friendships and connections and I look forward to growing those relationships.”

    — Summer S, Young Presidents’ Organization
  • “Thank you for such a wonderful few days of networking. Retreats Resources put together some fantastic hoteliers and planners with just the right combination of each. Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Plus a bonus in the amount of money raised for Doc and Wine to Water is unbelievable and spoke to your passion as well as others.”
