“The team at Weldon Events has been fantastic throughout our entire meeting planning process.  Jeanne Weldon and her colleagues have a wonderful attention to detail and significant experience. They communicated so well with all of the diverse (and sometimes frustrating!) constituencies involved with NAPABA. Weldon Events has impressed me from the start and I would definitely retain Jeanne and her staff for future events.”

“The buzz surrounding the event was incredible. We could not have asked for a better event - it certainly exceeded everyone's expectations. Our VP of Sales and Marketing for IHG was blown away as were the other National Sales people. Hotels are usually tough critics because everyone thinks they could have done a better job but I have to say that throughout the convention and even until now everyone is raving about how much fun they had that night and that is due to the incredible job and efforts everyone on your end did to make it happen”

I want to thank you for being so incredibly generous to the Brookline Education Foundation throughout this complicated process.  Your help and guidance was invaluable!  I do not think we could have imagined a more successful event.  The décor, the food, the lighting, the program, the mood, the money and the real joy when those teachers got a standing “O”.  I hope you know that we are forever indebted to you... Again, thank you… “
