The Company provided outstanding B2B and B2C services. We will hire and partner with them again and again...

Pros

ease of use, data collecting capabilities, saved time, saved money, created impact immediately

Cons

What I like least is actually a positive, I like least that they pushed us to perform, they were always a-head of the curve, and that is so welcomed and at the same time, a positive challenge to our staff. We found ourselves trying to e-mail them first, as they were always consistent and often a bit in-front of us... BRAVO...

Advice to Others

I would continue to utilize it, and look forward to any updates.

Can't express enough how grateful I am to Craig Manning and Kiffen Taylor. Chairing an event is stressful enough but Craig and Kiffen ease the pain by stepping in 100% to help. Their expertise in helping to drive sales & marketing is a plus to any not for profit organization. They go above and beyond to help. I highly recommend Event Essentials!

If it weren't for Event Essentials professionalism and expertise, our event would have suffered the pains of our past years with slow attendee registration and processing through the event gates. Because of their ability to quickly process our guests, we had little to no lines and hundreds of people got through and processed in minutes! It was the most organized front end we have had yet. Preevent support to help promote and sell tickets was the other luxury we had with their broad and deep knowledge of promoting successful events. Cheers to Craig, Kiffen and the whole gang at Event Essentials!

Craig and his team of professionals at Event Essentials really helped to streamline our processes last year for the California Jazz & Wine Fest. He helped set up our online ticketing process, manage our partner and redemption codes, track sales and overall reporting so that we could see the impact of our promotions. With Event Essentials, they feel as invested as we do in the overall success of the event and make necessary recommendations to keep us on course to help meet our goals. Thank you the entire team at Event Essentials for being so great to work with.

We've received a lot of positive feedback about our Event Essentials¿ newly redesigned Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival website and ticketing. From exhibitors to sponsors to attendees, the website easily provides the information users need on both PC and mobile devices. Ticket purchasers have had a smooth experience in turn helping our non-profit run more smoothly "behind the scenes". The dedication and guidance throughout the event from Event Essentials¿ staff has also been invaluable. Thank you Event Essentials!

Event Essentials has finally given us the tools we need to take our event to the next level. We are able to implement the use of scanners and seamlessly integrate their registration pages into our site. Even though we are located at the other end of the country, Kiffen is always accomodating and available to help us.

We are a local non-profit serving about 4,500 kids and families a year - we rely on our special events to keep the doors open. Event Essentials has completely run the transaction and pre-order / fulfillment side of our events form start to finish four years running. They really brought us into the modern era of eFulfillment and online auction as well as sponsor, attendee, vendor and entertainment management through their custom admin pages and reporting features. Every detail was handled and recap of totals waiting in our inboxes. Its not that we didn't want to get into the nitty gritty, our time was freed up to thank sponsors, talk to supporters, attendees to help or control - finally we were able to be present at our key events because Event Essentials carried the weight. Highly highly recommend these guys - ask for Kiffin or Craig!

Working with Event Essentials has given our association the ability to pull off some very large events, that we could not have done on our own. They have the knowledge and skills to assist with all aspects of making great events happen. They are fast, friendly, and easy to work with. We have called them last minute with some very large request and they managed to make our "crazy" ideas come to life. I would recommend this company to anyone who is serious about putting their best foot forward.
