“I recently worked the team at downeast destination management on a Halifax Gateway event in Toronto. It was a terrific experience; they made all of my decisions easy ones. The event itself was really well constructed and especially conducive to our main goal of building awareness of Halifax. ddm immediately understood the level of sophistication and caliber of event we were aiming for and delivered an exceptional event. I will work with ddme again on future events and I would readily recommend their services to anyone looking to have a highly polished, professional and successful production.”

“Working with downeast destination management was an excellent experience. During the planning of our event (the first international even of it’s kind in North America) we were overwhelmed with so many details. Claudia was able to keep everything on track and we knew that any task she took on would be completed on time and with style. I have already told many colleagues about our positive experience and will be happy to work with Claudia and downeast again in the future.”

I would recommend the downeast team, in a heart beat!

Filed under: Testimonials — 5:13 pm

Upon recommendation by the Westin Nova Scotian Sales team, I acquired the services of downeast destination management for help with our 6th Annual Scientific Conference, taking place in Halifax in May 2010. Working from Guelph, having ddm in Halifax, with connections across the city, became invaluable. Originally contracted to help us run a Geo Caching Team Building Event, they became my go-to for all things local and ended up sourcing a sign printer, a glassware provider, a dinner cruise and a delegate bag giveaway, not to mention offering some excellent sightseeing advice for our participants. Having ddm in Halifax made my life as conference organizer MUCH less stressful and most definitely added to the flow and success of our event! I would recommend the downeast team, in a heart beat!

“Our first experience working with downeast destination management was nothing short of excellent.  Finding new ideas for office events can become a challenge, however from the first contact with downeast their staff, especially Jenny Hasselman, was next to none.  We truly had very little to do but show up and enjoy.  The staff at downeast just needed to know the number of guests and from that point on handled every last detail.  Staff were professional and courteous and we look forward to future events with downeast.  Many thanks to Jenny and her team.”

“skip the bothersome RFP process and simply hire downeast”

Filed under: Testimonials — 2:48 pm

“Working with downeast was not only a pleasure, but I could not have produced such a flawless national conference and trade show without their incredible guidance, support and expertise. Their staff are super stars and I tell all my colleagues to skip the bothersome RFP process and simply hire downeast for transportation, companion program, entertainment, décor, transfers etc. Jenny Hasselman was incredible and became a part of my team and went above and beyond to help wherever needed. I highly recommend downeast destination management.”
