Hiring The Event Group to facilitate our global summit and event needs exceeded our expectations. Organizing and logistically managing a global summit has so many moving parts including, among others, registration, security, hotel rooms, transportation, AV requirements, food and beverage, and décor. The Event Group made the process seamless. We are now moving into our third year with The Event Group and Sheila and her team were quickly able to adapt to the constant changes previously presented by the COVID-19 Pandemic and we were able to safely execute our previous international summits with both in-person and virtual attendees. We can confidently say we look forward to partnering with The Event Group for our annual summit for many years.

There are so many reasons I have been fortunate to work with Sheila Weiner and the team at The Event Group coordinating logistics of complicated, multi-day conferences for Alcoa and Arconic. They helped us to brainstorm and then execute a myriad of ways to engage our attendees, from implementing complicated agendas with multiple concurrent sessions to creating networking spaces and a game/lounge atmosphere to encourage fun to coordinating logistics to display (and drive) the aluminum-intensive Ford F150 through our event. The Event Group team is collaborative, focused on details, and action-oriented. No matter what your need, they always know who to call, and their strong connections across the event industry means the person on the other end is always happy to assist.

I have personally worked with Sheila Weiner and The Event Group for 3+ years. Their professionalism, attention to detail and overall production value is unmatched in the industry. LivePerson has worked exclusively with TEG for all exec-level events running in North America since early 2017. Our events are attended by VP to C-suite attendees from Fortune 1000 companies around the globe. The experience and overall success of our events are critical to our demand generation strategy. I simply would not trust another event group with the production of these programs. A few areas where TEG is particularly excellent include:
  • Vendor Relationships - We've held events in 10+ large and mid-tier cities and Sheila has excellent contacts in all of them. She has created a strong network who respects and prioritizes her and her team.
  • Negotiation & Budgeting - The TEG team is meticulous about documentation and Sheila is a fierce negotiator. She uses her legal background to ensure contracts are drawn up with the client in mind and consistently negotiates the best pricing.
  • Professionalism - Every member of the TEG team operates with the same standard and consistently goes above and beyond.
Over the past few years, The Event Group has become an extension of our in-house marketing team. I'm not sure what we would do without them. They are the best in the business - I would stronly recommend working with them.

Kate Twilllmann, Senior Marketing Director

In my thirty years producing luxury events, I have yet to see an event planner with a greater commitment to excellence and client satisfaction. Every single aspect of any event produced by The Event Group is handled with painstaking attention to detail. Sheila Weiner is simply tireless in her dedication to the flawless execution of her events. There is no one in the industry who is on site earlier or stays later. In working together, it has been my privilege to experience Sheila’s impeccable conduct and integrity as a business woman. I consider her a true leader in our industry. I am not alone – I’ve seen vendors answer her call at all hours of the day or night. When Sheila calls, you answer. Life’s most important events deserve the gold standard and The Event Group continues not only to set that standard but to exceed it. It is my pleasure to highly recommend The Event Group, for they truly have my utmost admiration.

The biggest takeaway for me was the flexibility that [The Event Group] provided me with. I had one [original] concept only to have the future location change when we were mid process [planning] for the next year’s event, which switched everything! Your team quickly came up with the new concept for us, switching from Mardi Gras to a Texas inspired theme. It was extremely helpful to see you all being flexible as it is something I do all the time as a meeting professional. You were innovative and creative with the budget, playing to the key items we were looking at to make a large impact to our attendees. Thank you again for being fantastic to collaborate with!

I’ve been an event professional for more than 30 years and I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sheila and her team regularly during that time. We have worked together at many high-end events at some of the Pittsburgh area’s most prestigious locations including the Duquesne Club, Carnegie Museum, David L. Lawrence Convention Center (Grand Opening), Point State Park, Heinz Field, O’Reilly Theater and the Heinz History Museum just to name a few. These have all been very complicated events that required coordinating many different vendors, complex timelines, logistics, etc. Frankly, there’s no other team that I’d trust to be able to handle these events other than The Event Group. They are always so organized and extremely professional. My company works with lots of planners, but only Sheila has our well-earned highest level of respect.

Sheila and her team are some of the most detail oriented and creative professionals I've had the pleasure of working with in my almost 17 years in events. Regardless of size and scope, The Event Group puts on best in class events and meetings time and time again. I truly enjoy working with them to bring their vision to life!

Kellie Mayrides, CMP – Account Executive

We very much appreciate the fine job and deft touch you applied to the Rolex functions at this year’s U.S. Golf Open. From food selections to transportation arrangements, we could not have had a better event. All of it was done with grace, aplomb, and cheerful good nature. When next we have a call to be in Pittsburgh, the first call will be to The Event Group. Well done.

From the minute I met Sheila, I knew I was working with a planner of the highest efficiency and with the most thoughtful action. She completely understands her client, and handles demanding, immediate attention clients with grace and serenity. She has a remarkable breadth of knowledge across the principles of all her vendors, but also allows the space for each vendor to do what they do. She has the highest standards but is not unkind in demanding them for her client. As a vendor of Sheila’s I’ve appreciated her precision, her kindness, and her loyalty. She creates a peaceful work environment by her own efficiencies in communication – no one is ever unaware of what they should be doing at any moment of an event Sheila is orchestrating. There is such comfort to be found in that. I’m thankful to work with Sheila and really look forward to it every time!
