Excellent Expo Results

We hired The Affinity Group for an expo and the results were amazing. We worked with DeAnna, and she made sure that weeks leading up to the expo we were in constant contact making sure that everything that our company needed to accomplish before the expo was being taken care of. She helped with picking out the overall theme of our booth for the expo and it turned out to be a hit with the patrons! We were amazed at her attention to detail when it came to things such as the way our product was hanging on the racks. She thought of ideas to make our booth stand out that we did not even think of beforehand, adding the final touches. We will gladly hire this company again!

The Affinity Group Has the Right Touch

DeAnna McIntosh is truly a professional when it comes to putting together an event with just the RIGHT people in just the RIGHT venue. She coordinated a Brunch & Learn event at a new downtown Fort Lauderdale Bar and Grill that was IDEAL for the topic we wanted to discuss (Financial Literacy) with the target audience I wanted: Young, Professional Up-and-Coming Millennials! The atmosphere was appropriate. The conversation was on-point and we all walked away feeling good about the experience. The Affinity Group has the right touch! Thanks, DeAnna.
