Just wanted to let you know that there were no attrition penalties at any of the hotels in Austin this year. This is due in no small measure to the excellent meeting planning skills of Camille Cimino and The Laurel Group team.

Former Director
Museum Store Association

You two do a marvelous job of coordinating all of the details and making it all look so easy. That climate of “everything being under control” makes the whole atmosphere so much more pleasant for us attendees.

Congratulations on receiving the “Trade Show Manager of the Year” Award. I know without your tireless efforts, the MSA Annual Meeting would never be as successful as it is. You are a consummate professional and deserving of this award. Bravo, well done!

You have no idea the pleasures that are derived from working with you all. Your dedication shined through yesterday. I wish to personally thank you for all of your hard work over these past months to make our Expo a huge success. You ladies are the unsung heroes of the Chesapeake Chapter of CAI.

You are amazing! I can’t believe how flawless this event was but I know it was due to your planning, organization and leadership.

Your choices for our hotel accommodations, the excellent boat cruise/dinner party, the speakers and the winery tour were top notch. The Laurel Group’s facilitation of the meetings and sessions and your professional handling of the myriad of details associated with any large convention like this was, as always, exemplary.

Congratulations on a well-deserved award for Show Manager of the Year. You have been MSA’s Show Manager of the Year for a long time now. It’s great that the rest of the world has seen the light!

I truly believe the hiring of TLG Inc. approximately 13 years ago is the single most important factor in establishing a constant growth in membership and overall improvement in the professional quality of our two annual conferences. Their organizational skills and aggressive drive toward excellence have made it easier each year for the Board of Directors to complete their duties.

Thanks again and please know that it was indeed my pleasure to work with TLG Inc. and to get to know everyone. I wish I had a hundred organizations like yours to work with!

I appreciate all that you do for this group. You are certainly the unsung hero of this organization.

The Chesapeake Chapter is the best. I have said that many times. I was a member of another nearby Chapter for years and they pale in comparison. You guys are the best. And YOU and your group are awesome people!

Congratulations on winning the Expo Group’s Show Manager of the Year Award! Our judges reported competition for this year’s awards as especially tough but in the end, you were chosen as Show Manager of the Year in the Tier 3 (Shows with 301-700 booths) . . .The industry needs more managers like you: innovative, creative and resourceful.

Ray Pekowski
President
The Expo Group

Camille is infinitely patient and has learned all of the quirks and oddities of our needs. She conveys these details clearly to all contractors and sees that these are fulfilled. While Camille manages trade shows for other associations, she always makes us aware that we are an important client and that our show is a priority. I can only imagine that this is how she treats all her clients, with respect, personal attention and her unwavering sense of responsibility.

Nora Weiser
Museum Store Association

First of all, the Trade Show was excellent this week . . . We participate in 9 CAI Chapter Conferences/Shows and the Chesapeake Show is by far my favorite of the ones I’ve attended. Everyone is really engaged . . . A big congrats to your entire staff on a job well done!
