Join us on:
EQC Taste of Tacoma™
Emerald Queen Casino: Despite inclement weather conditions and other unnamed obstacles, I would like to thank you for a fantastic festival season. The Taste of Tacoma was as wonderful as ever and was enhanced by some additions. Both events were a showcase for your versatility, perseverance, flexibility, and pure tenacity as a company and as a crew. The lay-out was the best I've ever seen as a visitor or sponsor and I'd appreciate it if you forwarded my sincerest admiration to the individual or individuals responsible for laying out the event out so effectively. Every addition from the badminton to the beer garden(s) and Pike Place Market vendors showed skill and precision and a distinctive knowledge of your customer base.
Market Reach: Each year Market Reach takes part in 100 or more events nationwide on behalf of our clients. Without exaggeration Festivals Inc. is the most professional group we deal with. From the point of sponsorship sale to the event opening day it is always a smooth process with lots of personal contact along the way to make certain we are happy so our clients can be happy.
Sierra Springs Water: "Thank you again for helping us create a great event at the Taste. All of your assistance from getting the locations dialed in to additional on-site help was greatly appreciated and reflects on your strong leadership abilities. Had it not been for your insight at the event we would have never had the success we achieved. Again, thank you."
Famous Dave's: I would like to thank the entire staff for their great customer service, excellent organization skills, and for working with us during our set up and tear down of our food booth. I have worked with many other festival organizers and none have come close to the perfection that the Bite Of Seattle displayed from the very first phone call setting up the Famous Dave's food booth and Blues Stage Sponsorship to the friendly wave good bye as we left after tearing down our booth. Special kudos should go out to both Bret and Bjorn for their patience, follow through and over all great customer service.
Conoco Phillips: The Taste of Tacoma™ is one of the biggest and best events in the region. The staff makes it so turn-key, how can you not be a part of it?
Advil Liqui-Gels: From the moment we arrived at the Taste of Tacoma™ until our final load-out, the event was a great success. Brett Gorrell and his hardworking staff were very friendly and accommodating every step of the way. The atmosphere was lively and the attendance was huge, making it an ideal venue to distribute Advil® Liqui-Gels®. Festivals Inc. eliminated our headaches, making it easy for us to eliminate everyone else’s!
hp Mobile Promotions: We at Alloy Marketing and Promotions bring our marketing programs to hundreds of events throughout the year. The Taste of Tacoma™ is consistently one of the most successful with regards to offering our clients access to hundreds of thousands of savvy consumers in a fun, family environment.
BrushPicks Toothpicks: The Taste of Tacoma and Bite of Seattle™ were by far the most successful events we participated in all summer. We owe it all to the people at Festivals Inc. (Brett Gorrell and the staff). From contracts to site logistics, every step of the process was done with excellence and professionalism. Brett and the staff made sure we had everything we needed to run a great promotion! We can't wait for 2004!
ARC Marketing (on behalf of Morningstar Farms): "This was our second year at the Taste of Tacoma™ with the Morningstar Farms Veggie Burger Fan Van, and once again, it was a huge success! We gave away so many samples, our staff could hardly keep up. This is a great event for us; huge attendance with right-on-target demos. And Festivals, Inc. (especially Brett Gorrell) always makes sure that the process is smooth from beginning to end, which makes it so easy for us and our client."
Verizon Wireless: Festivals professionally manages its events to make it easy for Verizon Wireless to give its customers an opportunity to learn more about choosing wireless services. Their attention to detail and follow up makes it a pleasure to do business with them. They consistently go above and beyond their responsibilities to augment our visibility and engage us as a partner in event success. The Bite of Seattle is a highlight each year for Verizon Wireless to share our latest products and services in a much anticipated event atmosphere of energy and opportunities.
Marketing Agency on behalf of General Mills: Working in the entertainment and marketing industry for over five years, I have to say that participating in the Taste of Tacoma and Bite of Seattle™ was by far my best experience ever. From the preliminary coordination stages to the end of event celebration, I have never met and worked with more accommodating people. The staff that puts on and manages this event is beyond professional and helpful, they have an amazing way of making you feel that you are the only person they are there to help. With the daunting task of distributing over 200,000 samples, the staff of Festivals Inc. bent over backwards to ensure that the event was a total success for us. I look forward to taking part in this event in years to come and will encourage all of my clients to develop a sponsorship package that includes participation in your events. I would like to give a special thanks to Brett Gorrell who went out of his way to make sure we reached our goals and had a great time.
On Target Media, Inc.: Our Dawn®, Pepto-Bismol®, Sure®, and Head & Shoulders® programs were a success due to the help we received from you.
