A heartfelt thank you for your hospitality, work, energy, professionalism, sense of  humor and time for organizing the trip last week. You’re at the top of your game!

Having had the pleasure of being on a number of these trips, this was, by far, a spectacular example of what these trips should be like!

Alana is a professional who I would have no hesitation in recommending. She has all the skills a successful event planner needs – she is very organized, a problem solver, an independent worker, a good communicator and she understand the needs of both client and venue. Additionally Alana remains calm when under stress and has a good sense of humour.

I highly recommend the Aurillia Consulting team for their marketing event management services. I have had the pleasure of working with their team for the past 3 years on the annual BC Liquor Conference. The Aurillia team assisted with everything from website development, ticket sales, promotion, design of the program brochure and all signage at the event as well menu selection, onsite management and everything in between. Their all-encompassing approach allowed me to have peace of mind throughout the entire process. Should you choose Aurillia Consulting for your next event, you will be in good hands.

Alana and her team have a very clear understanding of the business, good knowledge of the market, and have maintained excellent relationships within the wine industry.
