I wanted to take a moment to reach out and express my appreciation to (and for) your staff and the excellent support your venue gives its guests. In our various roles supporting our clients nationally, we see a wide variety of facilities from Moscone Center in San Francisco to hotels in Times Square or Orlando and beyond. While no venue can be "all things to all people", yours serves its community and guests in a manner of which to be proud.
Every one of your staff that I encountered was empowered to make decisions and act upon them -- no small feat when compared to our experiences elsewhere. And the hospitality, generosity and intelligence offered us spoke of a highly-motivated staff that is secure in their positions and aware of their role as ambassadors of their community. It is impossible to emphasize enough how easy this makes it for us to recommend the venue as a destination.
I look forward to a return visit this Fall with another client and will continue to speak highly of the destination to clients that fit this size facility. My kudos to your entire staff but particularly your Production & Facilities staff, with whom we worked most closely. Their foresight and preparation are absolutely invaluable to the success of Miss Oregon and every event you host.
