WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Senior Associate

Pharmaceutical Client

"You guys are amazing!!! Just want to thank you all for your help and great creative ideas. We had such a successful Leadership Meeting and the comments we’ve been getting so far are amazing! The testimonial from Fred Fox was touching and so glad we did this Step Challenge with employees. Such a great success!
We can schedule a formal virtual post-mortem to go over notes together and best practices for future events, but just want to say that it was beyond our expectations in terms of look and feel."

President

Technology Client

"Fenix always does a great job and helps us deliver superb programs. What I admire most is when it rains, umbrellas are available, when a customer needs a mobile device charger.... you have it, when a customer gets lost jogging.... you arrange a custom ride, when flights are cancelled.... you find alternate routes. The routine is easy.... responding to emergencies is a science."

Director

Automotive Client

"We (client) pride ourselves on putting on excellent programs for our customers and I’m grateful for your team’s efforts and attention to detail which ultimately translates into outstanding experiences and reflects so positively on us and our partners/customers. There is no doubt in my mind that our umbrella of programs would not be as successful without Fenix as our partner."

SVP

Pharmaceutical Client

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks and appreciation for all that the team does to support us! I have been at the company for just over a year now and have completed the circuit of events within our business. I must say how impressed I have been at all of the occasions that Fenix has supported. The Fenix Team are consummate professionals – unflappable when things don’t go as planned – which is rare, and there is a genuine sense of care and hospitality with everyone. Our staff and Fenix work very well together and most importantly our customer / members and their families feel welcomed and taken care of with Fenix as our event partner. I have always had great comments from our employees and customers about Fenix, but wanted to extend how many compliments I heard - as to how the cancelled return flight at this year’s conference was handled. This was a major wrinkle outside of the team’s control, but it was again handled with such care for the customer. Congratulations to all on developing such a great team, such a tremendous events capability, and such an important partnership with us."

Senior Marketing Director

Technology Client

"Fenix has planned our events for the past 20 years. You plan our conferences, tradeshows, incentives, roadshows, product launches and sales meetings for us. We have always felt that we have the right partner as you continuously bring us new and fresh ideas...This year we were stopped in our tracks – not knowing what was going to happen or what to do yet you were there to support us and yet again bring solutions. 2020 – the year of “virtual” is a year I will never forget. You stepped it up and were able to execute 37 virtual events for us over a 7-month span. We were able to reach out and engage so many people thanks to this. This allowed us to keep front and center with our employees our customers and our partners. I am excited for the future knowing that Fenix is here to support us whether it be virtual or back to in person events. Thank you, Team Fenix, – Happy Holidays. 2021, Here we come!"

Executive Vice President

Technology Client

"Within weeks of our annual conference of 800 participants travelling to Chicago, Fenix was able to work through postponing the in-person event and produced for us a meaningful virtual conference. Each of our employees was contacted by the Fenix Concierge Team to put their minds at ease all the while Fenix developed a full communications campaign to go Virtual. They were able to create a “studio” within our campus and broadcast out all of the key messages and information that was going to be presented at our annual conference. By seeing our executives and hear firsthand the messages, participants felt involved and they were intrigued. With Fenix help we were able to solicit input and poll our audiences throughout – again making them feel heard and engaged. Fenix even had the idea of sending out kits to participants where a specialist came on and lead them through an experience - they loved it! I can’t wait for live events to come back – however, Fenix made me and our entire executive team / event committee feel comfortable and I have to say, I really found our first virtual conference meaningful and would deem it a huge success. We are in the right hands!"
