We want to acknowledge and let you know we appreciated your focused attention along the way, your flexibility onsite and the graciousness showe to our participants, helping with anything and everything".
“I would be happy to be a reference for Ovation. It was truly one of the best experiences we have had with a DMC partner. A very successful trip for sure.”
"Honestly I am just blown away by how hard working you are. You are true professionals who treated our group for the CSB Incentive as if they were your own. From the initial site visit, through the planning stage and the on-site execution, I had absolute trust in you as a team and knew that you would help me pull this program off flawlessly and you did not disappoint."
"You guys gave your absolute very best to make this trip a top-notch experience. I am so happy that I chose Ovation to run the operation for this program. In all my years of producing programs out of the country, I have never found a better onsite DMC match."
