“JR Global helped us to ask questions and negotiate for things we hadn’t even thought about. They were like guardian angels guiding us through this event and ensuring that all participants—staff and guests– were well cared for. We couldn’t have done it without them!”

“We thought we had good, detailed events checklists, but were blown away with your team’s “program resume” and other tracking spreadsheets that your team maintained for us. Our team feels spoiled to have had this experience working with them and we look forward to working with JRGE on future events.”

“The team at JR Global Events were extremely dedicated to the event – they watched their email the weekend before the event and answered my last-minute questions and put out any fires seamlessly.”
