Preparations Key to Successful Transition to Virtual
Pivoting from a half-day, in-person conference for 150 people to a live virtual event for over 200 people was necessary, but the organization had not executed a Zoom virtual webinar before. Thanks to RMK’s expertise and their virtual event producer, our inaugural signature event it was a complete success. RMK made the process smooth by helping us prepare with informative practice/training sessions, script development and providing high-touch support for presenters. From constant communications to all participants to technological expertise all details were covered. “The Show Must Go-On, and RMK Delivered.”

While the honorees took center stage at the 10th Annual SECAF Awards Gala, for those of us on the Gala Committee it was our 5-year relationship working with RMK Productions that was on display. From initial planning through to the biggest gala in our history, RMK delivered a seamless and engaging experience. Thanks to RMK’s hard work and creativity everyone had plenty of fun as evidenced by so many of our guests and honorees enjoying the dessert party for so long afterwards.

RMK Productions has just wrapped up another incredible event for Unanet! From contract negotiations to vendor management, RMK consistently delivers extreme client support that lets us focus on our customers and guests! Whether it’s re-negotiating a vendor issue, or helping an attendee with a special request, our entire team knows they can rely on RMK to resolve any issue!
President & COO, Unanet
In 2016 we ran our first user conference without the help of an event planner. What a big mistake we made, coffee ran out, attendees didn’t know where to go, our staff would stay late not only running the content of the event but acting as the clean-up crew. For 2017, we decided to try RMK. We had a dedicated event manager assigned to us for the 9 months before the event to make sure all of our ducks were in a row. On the day of the event, our staff could focus on giving the event soul, while RMK could focus on all of the small details. In the chaos of the event, many small problems bubble up, but I certainly didn’t hear about any of them. That’s because RMK did their job so well.

We could not have picked a better partner for our annual conference management. RMK made it all look easy and seamless. Our partnership with RMK allowed us to execute our conference as if we had been doing these for decades — which is exactly what we hope to do in the years to come with RMK at our side.
President, IPS Learning
We have hired RMK for the last four years to create and execute our annual gala that hosts up to 900 guests. Reggie and her team are the calm in what is always a hectic storm of planning and fundraising. We continue to rely on RMK to negotiate the best prices on venues and donors and have never been disappointed. We continue to always be grateful and surprised by the resourcefulness of this team. Reggie is a complete professional and will always be someone I recommend and turn to for all of our events no matter what the size.

Reggie and her team at RMK Productions are fabulous to work with! They can handle the entire event, or targeted specific functions. They are flexible, reliable and a general joy to work with. They are incredibly responsive to all our needs and serve as an extension of our team. Partnering with RMK Productions reduces my anxiety level immensely! They managed our event for five years and I recommend them highly.
