“Re: YPO Event: I wanted to send you a note to let you know what a great job you and your team did last night. I received numerous comments on the evening, everything from how great the food was, the venue, the entertainment on and on. Everything was done so professionally it sure put us at ease. Thanks to you and your team for making this event a night none of us will forget, definitely the best YPO event I have ever been to. Be sure to pass our thanks on to all who worked on the event.”
“On behalf of CARAS, we would like to express our appreciation to you for your hard work on the 2010 JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards. You managed to once again produce our most successful Gala to date. This event has truly transformed into one of the highlights of the JUNO Awards Weekend. We’ve heard nothing but glowing reviews about the Gala (and believe me, people aren’t afraid to tell us their true feelings). Thank you so much for your time, talent and energy. Knowing that we have all our bases covered by you really makes our lives much easier and we never take that for granted. Here’s to another year and another successful event!”

You raise our event to the highest level, we are always so proud to say that our event is produced by MVKA and I heard so many spontaneous comments on how much people loved the room. Your design team, production team, and installation team were all phenomenal as always and exceedingly professional. “

BC Children’s Hospital Foundation Crystal Ball
“I had a wonderful time at the Christmas Party! I heard from many people that this party was the best one they ever went to! Our senior management team all said it was a great success! You and your company did a fabulous job in organizing the room to make it work best. I had the feeling from you that I could trust to leave things in your hands without feeling like I had to supervise anything. Thank you for all your help and expertise!”
“Thanks again for an absolutely fantastic room. The ice theme really was amazing and a very big “wow” for our guests. Our president said it was the best room in the country – and he seldom gives a lot of praise. I have been hearing wonderful things all weekend and I know the hotel brought down their General Manager to see the ballroom because their catering staff was so impressed. “
