"Suzanne is an incredible resource and she has been very helpful to me."
When I have a meeting to plan, I provide the details and logistics to Suzanne and she utilizes her extensive contacts to secure the best deal from the hotel/venue. I just worked with her to plan our Operations Group meeting for the fall. We changed the dates three times and changed the location/city four times and she rolled with our craziness without batting an eye!
She has saved my department a ton of money and saved me hours of work by handling all the initial negotiations with the vendor. Her services are free to us – the venue/hotel pays her commission.
I highly recommend her services and I urge you to contact her if you ever have a meeting or event to plan, no matter how large or small.
"We are saving money, improving the quality of our events and receiving rave reviews."
It is a pleasure to work with Holly and Suzanne at Meeting Matchmakers. With their assistance, we’re able to quickly research a wide variety of hotel properties, obtain competitive pricing and secure the best possible contract for our events and trips. Their expertise allows me to leverage my time as they negotiate the hotel group contract on our behalf with considerable confidence. We are saving money, improving the quality of our events and receiving rave reviews.
Thank you Holly and Suzanne! We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with you.
Working with Holly was a wonderful experience.
She is extremely knowledgeable and always quick to respond. She made the process of finding a venue for our weekend retreat completely seamless. I highly recommend working with Holly for all of your event space needs!
"There was no way this event would have gone off so well without her help."
Suzanne completely made me look like a rock star with my new parent company! She was with me every step of the way to help me plan and execute a two-day 200 person conference in New York City which was sponsored by my company as well as our two new sibling companies. Suzanne helped me select and negotiate contracts with an amazing venue and two high-end hotels. She also went out of her way to help me rent out a restaurant for the conference dinner and booked an 80s band for the after party! Plus all my co-workers raved about the luxury bus she booked for our return trip to Boston. I have been running events for 15 years and am usually the person running and doing all aspects of it. But Suzanne gave me the confidence to let her handle the event logistics which enabled me to focus on the event marketing and content, which was not easy as it required bringing together 3 different companies and interact with speakers from major organizations. There was no way this event would have gone off so well without her help. I cannot thank Suzanne enough for all of her help!
"If you're planning any kind of large event and need help with venues, hotels, transportation, restaurants, etc, you need to talk to Suzanne Spaner. Thank you for helping to make our event awesome!"
"Any business event planning needs, large or small, she's the best!"
Suzanne is a class act in every way. She has helped us plan and deliver outstanding annual customer conferences around the country since 2010. Her knowledge of the industry helps make event site selection easy and painless, knowing exactly what to ask for and expect in contract negotiations. Using her companies services have saved me a countless number of hours with their preliminary site screening and post visit follow up. I am definitely comfortable recommending Suzanne for any business event planning needs, large or small, she's the best!
"We would never consider doing an event without her."
Suzanne is the kind of person that works quietly in the background to make you and your company look amazing! She has helped us with our Users Conference for years, and we would never consider doing an event without her. She takes time to understand us as a company, our culture. She knows the kind of event that we want for our customers, and she exceeds our expectations every single time. Our customers believe that the events we throw are super expensive, and while they aren't cheap, Suzanne respects our budget and fights for us to get all the special touches at a reasonable price.
"Suzanne is smart, responsive and an asset to the planning and execution of any corporate event which includes out of town guests."
"Tenacious, conscientious, thoughtful - and most important for this - creative."
When a participant from my No Longer Virtual conference suggested I contact Suzanne to help with the next one, I wasn't convinced I needed help. I've been planning events for decades, why would I hire someone to do what I know how to do?
One phone conversation is all it took for me to realize the benefits of working with Suzanne. Not only did she ask all the right questions about the event and about my vision for it, she struck me as tenacious, conscientious, thoughtful - and most important for this - creative.
After she negotiated my contract with a hotel for No Longer Virtual in Atlanta 2019, I worked with her again for a conference being planned in London. I cannot imagine a reason I wouldn't call her every time I need to plan an event with a need for accommodation. She's outstanding at what she does.
Meeting Matchmakers were fabulous to work with, took care of everything and got us an awesome deal at a great hotel.
"One of the most personable, delightful people I have ever worked with."
