The Experiences That Matter Most


Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our clients say about working with Janet Hoppenstein and ALTB Event Management.

June 10, 2016

“ALTB Event Management is a wonderful company to partner with. Janet is so upbeat and enthusiastic about what she does daily, and it shows. I have worked with Janet the past 2 years and it has been nothing but a valued partnership. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Janet – except that she is crucial to your companys success in sourcing, negotiating and booking your meetings and events at hotels and venues. Her negotiating skills are top notch and I have seen it first hand! Janet is extremely organized and her attention to detail is amazing. I enjoy working with Janet on her programs and would love every planner to follow in her steps. She is a rockstar!”

“My organization has been doing events for a number of years but it wasn’t until we contracted with Janet Hoppenstein that I began to understand what they could be. There isn’t a conference that goes by (and we do a lot) that an attendee doesn’t walk up to me and say “you guys put on the best events in the industry.” That has a lot to do with content to be sure, but it goes beyond that. It has to do with the fact that our attendees feel welcome, comfortable and special from the moment they enter the building. You know that feeling you get when you’ve got your favorite drink in hand and settle into a comfortable chair? That’s what our attendees feel like and that is 100 percent because of the work of Janet and her team to put us in the right venues with the right facilities and the right food and drink.”

“I have worked with Janet for five years. HCI conducts five to seven events each year, involving multiple speakers, forty or fifty sponsors and hundreds of participants. These events include meals, refreshments, concurrent sessions, professional audio video presentations with world-class speakers and multiple hosts. She has planned, organized and executed these events with great skill, patience and ability. The results have been truly outstanding.”

“I have worked with Janet on HCI’s events over the past five years and have been alongside her as she has exceptionally managed 40 different conferences ranging from 300 – 700 attendees. Janet has brought HCI’s events to an entirely new level. The comments we now receive from our attendees include “so creative”, “seamlessly executed”, “superior customer service” … and this is all while saving us thousands of dollars year over year. Janet is an invaluable asset to our organization.”

“I attended a conference for work and was amazed by the venue and service that was provided. I happened to stumble across the event planner, Janet and was impressed that she organized the event. The hotel was regal and upscale. The food was never ending and we were offered the most delicious meals and snacks. I felt like royalty at this event. I would recommend Janet for any event planning as not only was the service excellent, but I was fortunate to sit down and speak with her and she is humble, genuine and sincere.”

“Janet is an events guru with an optimistic, enthusiastic, “can do” spirit. She brought a perfect blend of art and science to our trade show and events program, often times making $10k look like $50k to our guests or prospects. In 2008, Janet was doing the work of what a team of 3 was doing in 2006, but you never saw her sweat or complain. She just got it done and did it with professionalism and excellence. Janet would be an asset to any marketing organization and I highly recommend her.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Janet on many events over the last several years. She has a tremendous work ethic and has always delivered a top quality experience regardless of the budget. Her work speaks for itself but it is her sense of humor that sets her apart. She was always working extremely hard at these events but you’d never know it because she always had a big smile on her face. She is a joy to work with.”

“Janet is a meticulous event planner with a sharp eye for details. I have had the pleasure of participating in several corporate sales meetings, trade shows and Intercircle / Presidents club events under her control. These were some of the most impressive and well orchestrated events I have experienced.”

“Janet is an all-around outstanding Events Planner – by far the best I have worked with in my career. She is creative, detailed, organized, on time and usually under-budget with results that always exceed expectations. Janet is adept at putting together all types of events, from serious corporate, customer facing events to fun internal sales events, skits, adventurous club trips, etc. She is a real team player who can take on challenges and always delivers more than expected and is comfortable working at all levels in an organization. I highly recommend Janet for any Events Planning role that allows all of her talents to be utilized to their fullest.”

“Janet is a firecracker! Her positive energy is contagious. She’s extremely creative, a joy to work with and one of the most detailed-oriented persons you’ll ever meet. That is a perfect combination for a major events manager – positive energy that sets the tone for an event and extreme attention to detail that ensures a great experience for attendees and participants (and gives executives peace of mind that their investment will bring great returns in Janet’s hands). I had the pleasure to emcee an event she managed, which was rated by many customers, partners and employees as “the best User Event” in Intervoice’s 24 year history. Her flawless execution made me look terrific! If you want boundless enthusiasm, professionalism, creativity and a critical eye for detail, they don’t come any better than Janet.”

“Janet is bar-none, the most innovative, creative and professional events manager I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Her high octane energy is contagious. She uplifts each project by applying strategic business objectives and conceptualizes world class events that align with company initiatives — while retaining the voice of the customer. Attention to detail is among one of her many fortes and she consistently delivers flawless execution. Janet is a valuable asset to any organization.”
