Testimonials

This being the third time in Washington DC for this event, it presented a challenge on how to make the destination experience fresh, rewarding and memorable. With CSI’s creative input and flawless delivery of activities and events these objectives have been achieved with flying colors.

Werner G. Haase

President, Madison Performance Group

Having never managed an event like this, I was completely dependent on CSI to make it happen. You and your team planned and executed the event flawlessly. As a result, I was eager to secure CSI for the following years’ events, and once again, you met all of my expectations and provided the Spirent team with a wonderful experience.

Chris Keenan

Director of Global Sales & Marketing Operations, Spirent

CSI Washington DC has been an approved DMC for Maritz Travel for over 20 years. They continually deliver above and beyond.

Linda Schweiss

Director, Supplier Relations, Maritz Travel

Because of the CSI partnership, we are able to continue and strengthen our conference and special events, and develop new and innovative ways to expand and improve each year. The consistency from year to year is invaluable and a huge time savings so that we do not need to retrain a new company. The events were a great. Your ground staff were unfailingly courteous, helpful and professional in every way!

Jared Cohen

Manager, Convention and Meeting Services, American Academy of Pediatrics

This year was fantastic. (YEAR FOUR, can you believe it?) I love that I don’t even have to give a thought when CSI is involved

Wendy Reed

Senior Event Project Manager, NFP - National Financial Partners

The IPLI program is scheduled to continue its pilot program for the next three years, in close partnership with the Microsoft Corporation.  The success of this unique, innovative program could not have been possible without your invaluable support. Thank you, CSI.

Horacio Gutierrez, Esq.

Corporate VP and Deputy General Counsel, Microsoft Corporation

CSI is a valued partner in the hospitality industry.  As a destination management company you understand the needs of your clients and work towards the customers goals.

Sharon Chapman, CMP, CMM

Senior Meeting Planner, Guardian Life Insurance Company

I felt like we were the #1 priority as I am sure all their other customers do as well. Selecting the right DMC is a critical decision in a meeting of this size and the CSI team did an outstanding job!

Wendy Midkiff

Owner/Meeting Planner, The Core Group (c/o Golden Corral)

Everything went so smoothly from the site visit, pre planning, ground transportation and events. The onsite reception and football game theme were wonderful. The ground transportation was perfect as were the dine around and one off meals you helped us put together. We look forward to working with you again on a future program.
