"I have had the pleasure of collaborating with CES in organizing our Libraries Holiday Party, and I can’t express enough how exceptional their work has been. CES' meticulous planning and attention to detail is truly commendable. They leave no stone unturned, ensuring that every aspect of our event is well thought out and flawlessly executed. CES has an innate ability to understand our needs and preferences, consistently suggesting solutions that align perfectly with our vision. Their insights have elevated our holiday party, making it a memorable and delightful experience for all attendees. CES is approachable, responsive, and always willing to go the extra mile. I trust them and know that they have everything under control.

"I have worked with Conference & Event Services on several events and they were wonderful to work with. I was able to lean into them for advice and insight on all-things event-related. They were on top of every detail and accommodated my schedule whenever possible. They were professional at all times and responded promptly to all requests. Thanks to CES, our events went off without a hitch and reflected positively on the department itself. When I work with CES, I have full faith that no detail will be overlooked."

"I was nervous since I haven't hosted many campus events, but the CES team made sure I had thought through all the important details. They were incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and professional. They worked with me to build an event that matched our vision, including their suggestions that made the event even better than I would have designed it on my own. On the day of the event, my to-do list was very short because their team had everything under control! I'm not sure I could have pulled off our event without their expertise and support!"
