I would like to thank you for your unbelievable service extended to us during our recent course held at The Oncenter. Because of your attention to detail and your willingness to accommodate our needs, our seminar went without a hitch!

I would be remiss if I did not extend a huge THANK YOU to you and your staff for helping us obtain this record. It is truly a joint effort and we really appreciate all your hard work. You will be receiving the GOLD Money Ball in a couple of months after our domestic tour is finished. Thank you again and we look forward to returning next year.

My purpose for writing is to let you know how wonderful the ushers and other employees were at the concert a week ago. They all were polite, informative, helpful (my mother has a walker), and personable. This was my first time at the Oncenter (I’m from Rochester) and it was a pleasant experience because of these people.

- Concert Attendee

My compliments and congratulations to the convention staff at the Oncenter during the past week’s Healthy Buildings Conference… Catering to more than 1,000 visitors from around the globe over four days is not easy.  The impeccable service, smiling faces, and excellent food on top of the superb international conference made this a five-star event that ranks among the best anywhere.

- Healthy Buildings Conference and Exhibition

A number of times we…heard ‘Best Ever’… from the delicious food to the gorgeous decorations to the excellent service, the compliments have been numerous…Thank you for all that you did to ensure the night was such a success!

Thank you so much for all of your help in making our breakfast a big success! Your attention to detail, your patience with our last-minute requests, and your management on the day of the event really were appreciated!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation for all that your staff did yesterday to make the Veterans Day event at the War Memorial a great success.  Everyone we encountered during the planning and coordination efforts for the day, as well as those who were on scene to make sure things went smoothly, was helpful and extremely professional. On behalf of our agency, and the 30,000 Veterans we serve, please extend our thanks to all involved.

Sincerely,

- Robert W. McLean, Lt. Col. USMC (RET.)

Matt and I ... just can't stop talking about our wedding day! We don't know how to thank you enough for all that you have done. Our reception was everything that we wanted it to be. I can not even tell you how many people have said that the food, service, and atmosphere was just outstanding. I get messages every day telling me how wonderful it was, so Matt and I give you all a HUGE thank you. It truly was such a magical day and you and your staff played a big role in making it so great. It was stress free and you made us feel like a king and queen. :) So please let everyone know how grateful we are for EVERYTHING. We especially want to thank you, Eva, and Katie for being on top of everything.. and I mean everything!!! Ah, it was just fabulous!
