Hi Jenic,

I can’t thank you and your team enough for creating such a spectacular event. I’ve hosted A LOT of dinners at hotels over the years and this one was likely the best ever. Everything was perfect. I don’t know how we could top that next year if this group decides to host the Austin F1 race again. But I have full confidence your team will rise to the occasion.

Thanks so much for making our event a huge success!!!!

What an amazing event guys!! Most of the attendees couldn't stop talking about all the fun and laughter they had all week long. Your team was amazing, the atmosphere just perfect and as we hoped, all attendees came in period outfits ready to Rock, Roll and dance. Taylor, thanks for all the fantastic art and logistics direction you provided, the talent you and your people have is just perfect. As well, the Disco ball Ladies were the hit of the show as you promised. Your crazy colored couches, and dynamic 70's decor and grand red carpet entrance, together with the 2 guitar walls and Giant mirror ball were absolutely perfect period setting components!

Thanks again for all you did to make Jeni's party a very memorable event!!

As chair of the Boerne Chamber of Commerce Awards Gala, I have used Goen South for 4 years now. WOW!! Every year, we are worried that we won't be able to top last year's gala because of the vibe, feel and décor. EVERY year, Goen South makes our vision for the Gala come to life. This year, was the BEST yet!! Samantha, from Goen South, and I started working on this year's event, months and months ago. I shared with her my ideas and theme and she and her team, went to work on pulling items and props from their warehouse to make my vision a reality. Our theme was Once Upon a Time and we, and our guests, were blown away with what they did!! I was so pleased with the outcome. They made us look good!!! They showed up on time, got right to work (took them 3-4 hours) to transform the foyer of the venue into a magical fairytale! Every employee was courteous and a hard worker. I HIGHLY recommend Goen South for any event, wedding or function that needs some pizazz or if you really want to make an impact on your attendees! You will not be disappointed. The only bad thing is now I have to come up with something even better NEXT year!! Good thing I have Goen South to help!

Hi Sue and Dana –
I just wanted to thank you for all your work on last week’s ACS Legal Offsite program. I had a debrief with the meeting host this morning and he was happy with incorporating transportation to his program and felt that all went well. He normally doesn’t provide transportation, but pretty sure he will be going forward J.

You two you were so easy to work, timely and efficient with changes/updates and just really made the whole process SO much easier by providing the manifest via Google Docs – thank you! We loved having real time access to the manifest. In fact, all DMCs should work this way. Really makes everyone’s life easier and the whole process more pleasant so Kudos ladies!

Thanks again. Until next time, be well.

With Kind Regards,
Nancy Lee

I am a corporate meeting planner and my company hosted a financial conference last fall in San Antonio. Goen South helped me with my two evening dinner events that hosted about 200 people. As a sole meeting planner for my company, Goen South truly acted as part of my team and was with me every step of the way from the inital venue scouting, site visits, budgeting, planning, and most importantly, the execution. They arranged everything and coordinated all of the details with each of the vendors (bus drivers, band, venue, caterer, entertainment, cigar rollers, etc.) on my behalf so that I only had one primary contact. This took a HUGE weight off of my shoulders. Luanne was my right hand man who went above and beyond - always with a cheerful smile on her face. She helped me fine tune my budget LINE BY LINE, beautifully executed each of my events, and best of all, was such a pleasure to work with that made it fun and easy. I received high praises from both my clients and staff saying that this was my BEST event yet - and much of that praise is owed to Luanne and the Goen South team. I would work with them again in a heartbeat!

Carlos, Allison,

I don’t even know where to begin. Thank you doesn’t seem strong enough. You guys know my potty mouth wants to add a lot of explicatives to that, but I also want to make sure you get the email and that it doesn’t wind up in spam filters.

You killed it for us. That party was amazing. The venue, the band... all of it. People were dazzled (and a little creeped out, in a good way) by the mirror people. No one would have ever guessed we secured them less than a day earlier.

You were both professional and so much fun to work with. You’ve renewed my faith in DMCs.


Sending big hugs,
Jana, Libby and the PubMatic team

Our attendees are still talking about it. I can’t express enough now helpful you were to both Jason and I. I think we can agree that making the decision to move the concert inside was tough but necessary. The dance floor was a perfect addition to our 80’s celebration.

I have to also share that Jomo and his band were amazing! People from our group are still talking about what a great band they are – loved their energy and what a great fit for our event. Thank you for recommending them!

Hi there,

It looks like we had a fun and successful evening last Thursday night at Palo Duro… I had a wonderful time performing for your client and they responded well to the music.

I was very pleased to have had the chance to work with Lauren who was very helpful and pleasant to work with… it is definitely a “Goen South thing” because everyone is always so nice and easy to deal with and you know, in this industry, that is not always the case.

Anyway, I just wanted to say Thank You for once more trusting me to entertain your clients. I look forward to the next one.

I wanted to extend a MASSIVE thank you to you and your team for your partnership here at Hyatt Hill Country. Yesterday was a gleaming example of how Chris and the staff with Goen South saved the day. Thanks to them, we were able to get the riser from another company up and structurally sound for the 100 person family photo shoot scheduled at 6pm.

Please know that we value all of you. You are definitely an extension of our team, and we appreciate you.

During your next meeting with leadership, please share with them how instrumental Chris and the guys were yesterday evening.

Thank you very much!

Goen South took our vision of having a “futuristic” event and brought it to life! Our attendees are still talking about “the girl in the bubble”. The only issue now is that they set the bar too high for our future events. Thank you for being just as passionate about what we wanted to accomplish as we were!

Dear Morris,

Thank you for the absolutely beautiful florals for our San Antonio No Kid Hungry Dinner at Hotel Emma this past Sunday! I’m proud to share that it raised over ­­­­$72,000 to support our efforts to end childhood hunger in Texas and across America. The centerpieces were just stunning and our team and guests were in awe. We could not do this important work without you. Together, we are connecting kids with healthy food so they can reach their greatest potential. Thanks again to you and the Goen South team for your incredible support. We are already looking forward to next year!

With gratitude,

I have been planning corporate events for over a decade and, honestly as a control freak, I have a challenge trusting event coordinators to follow-up and follow-through on details. However, I knew within a day of working with Goen South, our event was in great hands. Ashley, the Event Sales Manager, had amazing attention to detail, dependability and creativity. She asked great questions, made suggestions that made our event better than I imagined and delivered everything she promised and more! If all event teams worked as well, as professional and as diligent as the Goen South team, all my events would be stress free! I can’t think of a better company I’d recommend based on my experience with Goen South. Their customer service, enthusiasm, professionalism and uniqueness is matchless! I am looking forward to working with them again (and again, and again)!" All the best, Dawn

Thank you for helping us create such a lovely event. I really appreciate that you were able to work within the shortened setup timeframe. The white leather chairs/loveseat turned out to be just right – people commented that it looked like we were doing an Oprah show. The linens, vases, and paper flowers provided exactly the right Fiesta touch I was looking for, and the tall florals were stunning. Goen South did great work, and we were extremely happy with how everything turned out.

There aren’t words to describe how thankful I am for the services you provided us over the past few months and executed last week. From the time we met in October, I knew I was going to enjoy working with your team. I have planned Global Sales Conferences for Legrand for 4 years now and have never had such a pleasant experience with a DMC. You are a dedicated, passionate and hard working team that goes above and beyond clients expectations.

Morris and Ashley, thanks to your quick turn around and superb services, our guests had the best time. The Armadillo racing is still being talked about and the Lip Sync Battle with Phil... I don’t think we will ever be able to top that! My cheeks still hurt from laughing so much.

I hope to have the opportunity to do business with Goen South again in the future. Thank you again for everything you did to make Legrand’s Conference amazing.

I so appreciated that you shared my passion to present a true WOW factor event to all of our guests. They will be speaking of the 2016 E&I Mixer in San Antonio for years to come. If I could have you with me throughout the country for every Mixer each year, I would. I’d also like to thank the rest of the team for working hard and being so patient with me on during the concept phase and throughout set-up day of.

Thank you so much for everything! The event was a huge hit and Dana (founder/CEO) referred to it as "a perfect event" which is HUGE praise, and that she had "had a number of people tell me it was exactly right-low key, great for socializing, fun." I heard from a few of our people that guests compared our 5-star event as the winner compared to the big CHIME closing reception at the JW Ranch.

You were a pleasure to work with--patient, flexible, creative & just plain awesome. And I thought the food service was great - bar service great. All the animals were a hit. EVERYONE wishes the card shark had stayed longer - lol. We may have to fly him in to our next event too! The hats were a big win - many of our guests wore them the next night & when complimented, spread the word about our awesome event.

We're just pleased as punch! And I'm so glad to hear Canyon Springs felt good about it as well! That's a testament to the event's success.

I wanted to take a moment this morning and tell you THANKS for a job well done. In my opinion, we accomplished everything we set out to accomplish. How many times can a person say that?
I wanted people to be wowed when they came in building... we hit that one out of the ballpark.
I wanted a sophisticated and elegant party... we hit that one out of the ballpark.
I wanted the labs to showcase our capabilities... we hit that one out of the ballpark.
I wanted to elevate Dannemiller's position in the community... we hit that one out of the ballpark.
I wanted to introduce Linron to the community as a player... we hit that one out of the ballpark.
I wanted to get business from the event... we hit that one out of the ballpark.

You were very instrumental in helping us accomplish our goals and I thank you. You are professional, easy to work with and have an incredible can-do attitude.

We got lots of compliments on the food so please pass my thanks on to the chef. And tell your wait staff that everyone enjoyed having them pass food and wine.

All in all, I think it went without a hitch. I couldn't be happier today.

I owe a lot of that happiness to Goen South.

All of your feedback was taken into consideration and all requests were met with an upbeat willingness to get the job done. I will highly recommend your work to other contacts/colleagues. It was a pleasure doing business with you. Should we ever end up in San Antonio again, rest assured you will be our first call when it comes to decor!

Thank you so much for your assistance with the event here at Aldaco's this past Saturday, everything worked out wonderfully and the room looked great dressed in black table cloths with all the purple accents. The wedding couple was extremely happy and their special day was everything they wanted it to be.

You and your staff are amazing, you definitely know how to go the extra mile to make things happen.

Thank you Terry and Christen! The furniture was perfect for the lounge, and we had so many mentors thank us for the space!

There is no way we could have been able to provide this added benefit without your help!

Everything looked FANTASTIC! My client was over the top thrilled, even specifically commented on "all that stuff around the stage" (his words) and how he really loved it. Thank you so much. You really impressed me. 🙂

Thanks again. Everyone loved the flowers... of course. It was neat to see how many people wanted to take them home! Even the guys wanted to take them to their wives. Thanks again for the assist on making this happen.

Hey Morris and Christen,

I'll do a more formal follow-up within the week, but I just wanted to send y'all a few quick photos and let you know how happy we are about last night's events.

It was a true privelege to work with you and I hope you feel the same way.

Thanks again,
