“Emogene can do it all! I have had the pleasure of working with her over the past year and a half as she planned Urban Land Institute's Annual Fall Meeting. This major citywide convention consisted of 6,000 experts in land development, planning, and real estate and took place in San Francisco's Moscone Center. Emogene was responsible for all aspects of the meeting, including hotel negotiations & contracts, housing management, and numerous off-site events. I personally accompanied Emogene as she selected venues for 50 off-site council dinners, each consisting of approx. 100 people and all taking plave on the same evening! In typical Emogene fashion, this project was tackled quickly and efficiently. No job is too big or daunting for Emogene! She is intelligent, creative, innovative, and resilient. She is focused on the big picture at all times, keeping the goal of creating the best attendee experience her highest priority. She takes the time to understand and anticipate her attendee's needs, desires, and expectations with impressive results. I look forward to working with Emogene on future meetings!” — December 7, 2009

“I had the opportunity to work with Emogene as a registration services contractor for the ULI Fall Expo in 2008.

Throughout all aspects of the meeting (pre-planning, registration site development, onsite activity and post-event wrap up), Emogene was able to use her experience and expertise to not only ensure that the event was a success, but make my experience as a contractor enjoyable and one that I would wish to repeat.

She was able to know exactly what she had wanted without having to make numerous revisions or code changes to the registration application or the onsite setup and execution.

If given the chance, I will definitely work with Emogene in the future not only as a contractor but in any capacity that I am presented with.” — October 28, 2010

“Emogene is one of the most talented meetings and events organizers I have known. I have had the pleasure of working with her for many years as a member of the Urban Land Institute, where she served on the staff with ever increasing responsibilities. She's smart, intuitive, innovative, efficient and is an excellent leader and motivator. If you are looking for someone to run your events from soup to nuts, to help you meet your organization's strategic objectives vis -a-vis your events, or to train and mentor your event staff, you will make a very wise investment by engaging Emogene's services.” — November 22, 2009
