Over 70% of our business is repeat or referral from our valued clients. Here is what our clients are saying about us  . . .


 
Just wanted to let you know that we have arrived home safe and sound and that everyone was absolutely thrilled with the trip! You have all been so helpful, so nice, and so professional! Thank you so much for everything! We had an unforgettable week in Maui thanks to you all! 🙂 Let me know if you ever want to come to Peru or Spain! I would very much like to see you all again!

Big kiss from Lima and thank you once again for EVERYTHING!
— Tania Zavala, Meeting Planner

 
Island Events made organizing a large group event in Hawaii an aloha breeze! We loved that Frank and his team were able to provide us, and our clients, with a creative and high-end experience that fit comfortably within budget. Couldn’t have asked for more. Mahalo Island Events!
— Kasra, Eden For Your World

 
We are all suffering from PMD (Post Maui Depression) here. It was such a great week & we could not have done it without you!
I wish I could clone you in multiple regions! Your staff was great, unobtrusive, but your personal touch & cooperation with the resort really made all the difference.
The boat trip left a real impression on the kids and was a great steer. But the highlight - hands down - was Friday’s event! It was very rewarding seeing the expression on people’s faces as we landed in helicopters like “Barack and Michele” on the private lawn! The dinner table at our “Barefoot Gala” was beautiful and can you believe people danced? That you managed to deliver the rugby game at a local Irish pub saved me.
You are a rock star!
— Jennifer, Australia

 
I cannot say enough good things about you and your staff. They were absolutely amazing! From start to finish, I felt as if I had a partner to help me collaborate and strategize pop up issues. ...I seriously don’t think there would have been anyone better to get the job done! They fit in extremely well with our group, and our trip would not have gone nearly as well without their help!
Thank you a million times over for being the best of the best DMC for our Presidents Club trip. This trip, although small, was extremely important to our company as Presidents Club is the cream of the crop!
I now see the true value of having a DMC and I know our event would not have been as special without Island Events!
— Larissa, Meeting Planner

 
I want to express my gratitude for the amazing job your team did partnering with me on such short notice, hosting the Microsemi EMM on Maui! You made me shine like a star in front of my direct bosses (CEO & COO). Your ability to interface with the resort on my behalf was amazing. Your attention to detail & evening event suggestions were over the top & perfect!
I look forward to seeing you again next year!
— Terri, Microsemi

 
Our family vacation was absolutely wonderful. So glad we took your advice on so many things.
Frank and his team were wonderful and attentive. They really did treat us like gold. And I’m so glad we flew the private aircraft to Oahu. That was a very special day!

Thanks, Frank—I could not have done it without YOU!
