“The staff at Visit Rochester was enthusiastic, efficient and great to work with. The quality of the items they provided for our event was outstanding and our attendees were truly impressed. Visit Rochester helped to make our planning so much easier - I would highly recommend them as the first stop on the road to organizing any event in Rochester.”

—Greater Rochester Rose Society 

 

”We very much appreciated the offer and carry through of our Visit Rochester staff and volunteers, especially helping stuff bags with information, offers of printing, ideas for a scavenger hunt, providing gift bags for our VIPs, friendly presence as we prepared for the Assembly, providing a person at the information booth to help guests know more about the city and places to go in the area.”  

—Evangelical Lutheran Church in America 

 

”Visit Rochester personnel and services were so helpful. Always with good ideas, willing to meet on a flexible schedule, and helped to reduce the amount of initial planning I needed to do so my time was free for other things. They were able to put us in touch with local transportation and even get us some initial quotes. They helped with contacting some venues, provided beautiful name tags all ready to go, and a tailored Rochester information chart, ... and so much more. VR definitely made the work of planning easier!“

—Feminist Pragmatist Colloquium 


”Visit Rochester's staff is the best thing about Visit Rochester. As a small nonprofit organization with limited staff time, it was a real gift to have help with staffing our registration table, stuffing conference tote bags, researching travel and dining options, coordinating with hotels (including adding a last-minute overflow hotel for us). We are grateful!“

—American Literary Translators Association 


”Service and support provided by Visit Rochester was outstanding. Information was provided that assisted with better facilitation of the conference, interaction with local agencies and connection with the minority community.“

We had seven people that had participated in a nearby tournament the weekend before ours and I know that most of them spent the time between tournaments in Rochester because of what they found in the packets. Thanks for the great job you do!“
