April 3, 2003 -- "They gave us a lot to think about," reports Dennis Frahmann, Director of Global Event Marketing, Corporate Marketing Services for The Document Company Xerox. "This project was something we couldn't have done as effectively with our internal staff. Cal Events helped us to identify and clarify new and existing opportunities, and provided us with several unique concepts and strategies that we are now seriously considering. They provided us with an excellent service.”
Patrick Marchese, President of Markzware Software agrees. "Cal Events helped
us to refocus on our main marketing objectives and gave us some keen insights on how to use trade shows more effectively as a tool to help us achieve them. They really opened our eyes and got us thinking. If you want to optimize your marketing opportunities, give Cal Events a call."
