I have appreciated her boundless energy, eagerness to learn, problem solving capabilities, attention to detail, and her ability to work well with our team.

Kelley’s professionalism, thoroughness, and attention to details were greatly needed with our limited resources and condensed schedule between events. Please consider Kelley for any of your event or meeting management tasks. You won’t be disappointed.

Debby Turbide, Director, TOTALsupplychain.com, Penton Media, Inc.

Kelley is a smart, tireless and dedicated worker that not only executes according “to the plan” but is also able to anticipate challenges and make course corrections when necessary both pre-event and on-site. There is no one I can recommend as highly as I can Kelley for your event’s management.

Brian Duckett, Penton Industry Media Group Show Director, Penton Media, Inc.

When I brought Kelley on to help grow my Roundtable series I was barely breaking even and reaching maximum attendance levels was a struggle every year. Kelley suggested and instituted many changes in how to promote Roundtable but more importantly, how to present Roundtable. She completely changed the format of the conferences and since 2001, every Roundtable has been a sell out.

Gorton W. Wood, Founder, Roundtable Series, Publisher, Expansion Management

Kelley is an outstanding event planner who ‘knows her stuff’. I hired Kelley to work with me on various events and had complete faith in her ability to negotiate contracts, work with event staff and follow through on every detail. It was a pleasure working with Kelley and I would definitely recommend her for future projects.

Gwen Hostnik, Group Marketing Director, Mechanical Systems/Construction Group, Penton Media, Inc.

Kelley is the go-to person for creative solutions with meetings and events of all kinds — regardless of size, venue or industry. Her attention to detail is incredible, from making sure that attendee and speaker experiences are outstanding to guaranteeing that the meeting will come in on or under budget.

Planning meetings is tough! So many details, so many contracts! It can get to be a full time job to put on a meeting or conference. Who has time for that? Having someone who understands the industry can really get you the maximum out of your meeting, without a lot of stress. Kelley Whetsell has managed 4 large conferences for our company. Her thorough coordination from negotiating contracts down to an attendee’s food allergy, she has handled everything with ease. Details are her specialty; every item for every minute of your event is thought out and noted. She is full of ideas to spark up events. Our company has saved money having Kelley negotiate with hotels, DMCs and other event sources. Her personality is easy to work with, always quick with a smile or a laugh, leaves me full of confidence that our event will be…perfect!
