Check out what some of our clients have to say.




KNOCKOUT EVENT: I have to say our experience with Encore was a lovely one from the very beginning, arriving into Washington for the first time with your beautiful flowers in my room, right through to 2.00am on Sunday morning!
Hilary, your entire team are great, and I know that there are always a huge number of people behind the scenes, so I do thank those people we didn’t get to meet on site.
For us however, your true rock stars and our partners for Knockout were, Liz, Sara, Thomas and of course yourself.
You were completely professional, flexible and delightful to work with throughout the entire process. We got some lovely comments about how great the room looked. So well done everyone.
We hope that this is the beginning of a lovely partnership.
Kris and the cievents team.

Please accept my EXTREME heartfelt thanks for such a wonderful effort at our Foundation Dinner last week. We simply could not have done this without you. The room looked absolutely beautiful and I know your staff and team worked diligently to make sure that every table linen and chair looked perfect. THANK YOU! It did not go unnoticed by the attendees. They LOVED it. We have received so many wonderful compliments. The stage, light curtain, the uplighting, and floral around the room – it all came together to create a beautiful setting.

Linda and Tanise

Sigma Pi Phi Literary Brunch


Tanise and I would like to thank you so much for all your work over all the past months – the decor for the Literary Brunch was beautiful and so special.  We received numerous compliments on how lovely the room looked.  So many guests also commented on the outstanding special touches – the flowers, the banners and the postcards. Your vision and hard work were so important in making the brunch the big success that it was.

We can’t say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with you.  Your entire team brought such professionalism and creativity throughout the process.  The postcards were such an inspired touch – reinforcing the theme of family and adding another layer of warmth and personality to the brunch.

It was also such a relief for Tanise and me to know that we could count on you – we can’t describe how invaluable that was.

We wish you all the best (please count on us for testimonials/recommendations if ever needed).  Have a great 4th of July weekend and a fun and relaxing (!) summer.


Kathryn Fenci

Vice President of Events, AARP


Thanks so much for everything you and your staff did to make our Studio 50+ events and our Board Dinner a success. Both nights went well and all of the rooms looked beautiful. We got some great compliments on the black/white and the Latin/salsa decor. They were definitely fun and inviting. The gold for the Board Dinner was so elegant and paired with the amber ceiling wash we did, it was really highlighted. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
