Testimonials

Kellye McClurkin / Meetings and Events Executive / MRINetwork

“I just want to send a final big THANK YOU for your partnership in Hawaii during our March event. Every single member of the DeSilva staff went above and beyond to ensure our program was a success from top to bottom. The entire week flowed smoothly because of your upbeat attitude, diligence to all of the details and being a true partner to myself and my team. Our attendees were greeted with smiles and DeSilva staff eager to help in any way, which makes my job so much easier (THANK YOU!). It is no small feat to coordinate an event of 550+ people, but with your grace and expertise, it felt like a breeze. Beyond onsite execution, I was thankful for the weekly calls during the planning process ensuring we were staying within budget and on top of all deadlines. I was also highly impressed with Josh and TJ being so involved themselves, and with Josh taking the time to fly to the Big Island on multiple occasions to make sure everything was running smoothly. Thank you again and next time we are in Hawaii, I know exactly who to call!”

Rebecca Zurcher / Director of Meetings / International Association of Defense Counsel

“The experience I had working with DeSilva DMC was second to none! From the planning stage, to the onsite execution, and follow-up after the meeting, the level of attention and service was top notch! Even after my attendance took an unexpected leap at the last minute they handled my increased guarantees (and needs) with absolute grace. I would highly recommend working with DeSilva to anyone considering their services. I will definitely be using them the next time I’m in Hawaii!”

Kelly Dower / Incentive Operator / Full Imput

“When I started my career in the “Incentive industry” 15 years ago I looked at a map hoping that one day I would have the opportunity to visit the “Hawaiian Islands” with a group. Well the dream has come true and a memory has been created that will long live on in my life and better still the lives of 84 people. My group were “WOW’ED!!!” from beginning to end. Your team of ladies …… Whitney with those endless phone calls, planning, activity schedule and making sure “no stone was left unturned”! The team on site January and Lindsay led by marvelous Maggie…what special ladies. They went out of their way to make sure everybody felt spoiled – nothing was too much for them. Last but not least thank you Josh for hosting the site trips and making sure we had the right combination of hotel, dining venue’s and activities! Maui is a special place and will long live on in our hearts!”

Beverly Read / Sales Director / Egencia Meetings & Incentives

“Egencia M&I cannot thank you enough for your outstanding service during our program in May at the Hyatt Regency Maui. Prior to my arrival on the island my office advised me they were very impressed with the pre planning aspects and if this was any indication of the on-site service then we had nothing to worry about. You’re on site services exceeded my expectations. Your team was experienced & professional and their approach was fresh and eager to please. Whitney was one of the most efficient Program Managers I have worked with in a very long time! Well done and we look forward to many more opportunities!”

Antonia Opitz / Corporate Event Planning / Standing O

“DeSilva Meeting Consultants not only met but far exceeded my expectations for a destination management company. The level of service they provided me and my group onsite was fantastic and made my job much easier. The staff is professional and friendly and they never miss a beat. I was highly impressed with their attention to detail and their ability to work with last minute changes onsite. DMC is now my go-to management company in Hawaii.”

Luz Cesario / Owner/President / LTR Partners, LLC

“As a third party meeting planning company, we always seek local knowledge to assist us in managing all the details needed to make an incentive program successful. While executing an incentive program in Maui, Hawaii we partnered with DeSilva Meeting Consultants. The decision was made to go with DeSilva and it is always good to know that there is a DMC partnership that thinks and executes meetings exactly as LTR does. What we got was amazing, extremely knowledgeable people from sales, planning and execution. They made our people feel warm and were always pleasant and friendly with them. We will always use DeSilva and recommend them all the time. True professionals with warm hearts and friendly service. ”

Susie Richart / Meeting Planner / Rehrig Pacific

“In May of 2013 Rehrig Pacific Company celebrated its 100th year in business. As part of our celebration 207 employees spent a week on the island of Maui. The DeSilva team was an integral part of making this a very special week for Rehrig Pacific Company. They handled everything from shuttles to and from the airport for us to dine around transportation, activities such as snorkeling, zipline, etc. and even a team building activity for us. They even found us the perfect band for one of our evening celebrations. Their people were on-site at our meeting the entire time we needed them. Without exception everything they handled was perfectly executed. Their people were friendly and knowledgeable and extremely helpful at all times. I would give DeSilva my highest recommendation for the perfect meeting.”

Rebecca Craiovan / Executive Assistant / Americas, Riverbed Technology

“What a pleasure it was to work with the DeSilva Staff while planning our event in Maui. The staff was professional, responsive and extremely attentive to all of our attendees’ needs and wants. No request was impossible and each detail was attended to with precision and accuracy. It would be an absolute pleasure to work with this staff again next time I have an event in Maui.”

Kim Mann / Director of Global Benefits & Events / Global Payments Inc.

“I recently engaged the services of DeSilva Meeting Consultants for an annual employee reward trip to Maui for approximately 250 guests. DeSilva exceeded my expectations on every level! They were very professional, courteous and accommodating to all of my guests. They handled every situation with ease and their attention to detail was phenomenal. As an event planner, I truly appreciate when I have a DMC as good as DeSilva so that I can relax in the knowledge that they will handle anything that comes their way efficiently and accurately. DeSilva played a huge part in helping my event to be a great success and I hope to partner with them again in the future!”
