I worked with the CTC Team on the NICA Program. The CTC Team was a pleasure to work with. They were very detailed and delivered a great guest experience to the NICA attendees. As a Convention Services Manager teaming up with Susanna D'Arcy, Micelle Manire and Calli France made it all seem so smooth. Very responsive and a real partnership. Looking forward to next year!

I've worked with Michelle Manire and Coast to Coast for six years now. She joined an event of ours in 2018 to assist our new meeting planner. Since then, Michelle has become a valued member of our meetings team. Her attention to detail and dedication to her clients is unmatched in this industry. Very grateful for the wonderful partnership we continue to have. Highly recommend working with her and her team.

Coast to Coast (Susannah & Calli specifically for our event) were outstanding event partners. Great attention to detail, taking full responsibility, and being intuitive to our needs. With a high standard of expectations - the team delivered well above what we asked and I look forward to working with Coast to Coast again.

I recommend Michelle and her team at Coast to Coast highly. My company hired Michelle and her Coast to Coast team for an in-person event in November 2022. This was my team's first time hosting an event and Michelle and her team worked to ensure it was a great success. Michelle immediately reviewed our contract with the venue and negotiated a better deal for us. We had regular, frequent check-ins on all aspects of the event coordination leaving our inexperienced team feeling prepared for the event. On-site event support was also great; Calli and Madeleine were very professional and a great fit for our team. Attendee feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we have decided to work with Coast to Coast for our event again next year.

Michelle has one of the highest levels of customer care for her event clients I have seen. Endorsements and Testimonials prove that. As the first women general manager at Doubletree, she takes that experience and drive to make engaging events that save her clients on average 30 or more. Making the leap to virtual and hybrid events—no problem. From complex to multi-million dollar multi-day events a snap. A constant innovator, you are in good hands with Michelle.

Marianne Ellis CEO Success Community
Coast to Coast was contracted to provide Video Conferencing Production Services in order to present our annual Community Meeting. As a replacement vendor, and with only a little over one month to plan, we were able to share vital HUD-required information to the residents of Los Angeles County. Michelle Manire, President and Dean Addington, Director, Business Development and Design provided necessary guidance and technical assistance since COVID-19 restrictions prohibited our typical in-person event. Their attention to detail, ability to communicate the necessary technical needs and processes, and desire to assist in any way possible before, during and after the virtual event was especially welcome since my team was not experience in all of the nuances of an online event. Their abilities also facilitated the simultaneous broadcasting on Facebook Live, which made the content available to a larger audience.

Michelle is extremely knowledgeable in the hotel and event industries. Her vast experience in this area can save you money and time. Since she has done so much over the years she has a very strong team that can rise to any occasion. She and her team are creative and resourceful. If you are looking for a highly professional expert for your next important event give Michelle a call.

Michelle is just the driving force you need to make our next event go flawlessly. Her tenacity drives smooth hotel and event coordination and detailed planning, while her 25+ years of experience helps create smooth execution and actually usually ends up saving you 15% - 40% in costs (pays for herself). However, it is her heart that sets her apart the most. She does everything from a genuine place of caring for those around her. A true diamond in the rough.

Michelle is one of the savviest event planners I've met in the past 20 years. She anticipates problems, advocates for her clients, and is a super-smart event marketer. If you're looking for someone who is willing to help you grow your events while freeing up your time and attention to focus on what you do best, I highly recommend giving Michelle a call.

Michelle is my go-to person for dealing with and negotiating contracts with hotels. She works to get you the best deal. On registration day you will actually be able to breathe because she has everything in hand. Plus when anything goes wrong and something always goes wrong she handles it quickly, quietly, and efficiently. Your guests and registrants will never know anything was amiss.

She approaches all her projects with the same passion, open-mindedness and thoughtfulness that makes a great mentor and collaboration partner. I've learned a great deal working with her and admire and respect her commitment to "customer service first" philosophy.

Having been in the corporate event business for 26 years, we have seen executive producers/meeting planners in the best of situations and the worst. At QLP we are a niche "message" creator, so we come into corporate meetings not as the overall planner but as an integral part of the messaging and programming for the meeting. So, we align very closely with the planner of the meeting...logistics, staging, sound, lighting, agenda, scheduling, and more. Michelle and her staff at Coast to Coast Conferences & Events take the stress out of planning an event by simplifying the planning process, for both vendors and clients. She and her team are super-creative, as are we, so the magic is there from the get-go! I know from client comments that she rocks a budget by being very efficient and diligent in her planning. She even has a metric by which she quantifies an event's ROI by introducing new event revenue streams and, as she states, with a 15% - 45% cost savings. Take it from a vendor who has worked hundreds of big corporate meetings...Michelle and her team bring their "A" game to every event...and they are a delight to work with.

I cannot say enough about this remarkable professional in the event and meeting industry - she was truly a rock star of the highest caliber, exhibiting graciousness and professionalism in every meeting and interaction, even when small crises emerged and we had to work together to troubleshoot. She was consistently calm and thoughtful and thorough, attending to every behind-the-scenes detail imaginable, and many that were outside the scope of what she was hired to do. When we reached capacity at the Hard Rock because of high attendance numbers, she was right there by our side to discuss options and work with individual NASPA members to secure alternative accommodations at nearby hotels for the conference rate. From day one, she was invested in our success and genuinely interested in the vision we set for our event.

Many thanks to you and your CTC Team for going above and beyond in making our AdFest a success. Your organizational skills, creativity, and quick thinking under pressure made this event possible.

Coast to Coast (CTC) was able to educate and lead us through the complex planning of a virtual conference. We wanted to ensure the conference was professional, interactive, and nothing like all the Zoom meetings people have been doing for the past year. CTC delivered and exceeded our expectations. Our Sponsors and exhibitors said working with CTC and setting up their virtual booths had never been easier. Our attendees were blown away with how interactive the event was and having a DJ during the conference made all the difference. We couldn't have had this event without the leadership, professionalism, and the CTC team!
