When it comes to client satisfaction, metro is unbeatable. It’s wonderful knowing how well they handle the strategic planning of a meeting while having such a hands-on approach when working with the client. I do not think I can say enough about how great this partnership has been for all involved!”

Joanne Grabowski, Senior Director, Global Accounts – HelmsBriscoe, New Jersey

“From the beginning, metroConnections fostered their relationship with my client. Starting with a small role in the first program together; they’ve since incorporated all their service centers to create cohesive, large-scale meetings and productions for my client. Awards shows to national trainings, I know they’ve got it covered.”

Jaimie Mattes, CMM Senior Director, Global Accounts–HelmsBriscoe, Minnesota

“I was looking for someone who could handle everything; planning and implementing websites along with all of the extra things metro can bring to a meeting – not limited to décor, theming and transportation. I’m primarily a venue finder, once that’s done; I want to engage with experts to make the dream operate. That’s why I always contact metroConnections.”
