Ari and his team offer NFPA tremendous value. His intimate knowledge of hundreds of properties is a real asset, but his greatest strength is his ability to understand the sometimes unstated tastes and expectations of our VIPs and attendees. Working together, we have found the perfect property time and again, greatly enhancing the impact and memorable nature of our events.

I can always count on RFP to be timely, efficient, friendly and extremely helpful. I was very impressed by not only the quality of work, but the broad range of knowledge Ari has of the meetings industry. Once again, thank you for your expertise in researching and finding just the right property for our Sales High Achievers trip. The attendees were thrilled with the incentive trip and loved the location. The prompt manner in which you respond to our many inquiries always makes it a pleasure to do business with you. You have earned the confidence of our team by consistently delivering a top notch service. Look forward to planning our next event with you in 2008.
