Hero Makers


Planner Hero excels in every aspect, from site sourcing to full event management. But why take our word for it? Hear directly from our delighted clients about their journey from concept to completion.

I have been working with Giselle for over 3 years now and there is no one I trust more to find accommodations for myself or the team. Her expertise, thorough research and work ethic ensure that our team always has a place to stay. She is willing to troubleshoot last minute changes and understands the unpredictability of travel especially in today's pandemic world. Giselle keeps me organized and with a roster of 85, I am - grateful to have her at the helm of our accommodations."

Big10 Director of Operations

I'm confident when I say the biggest mistake an organization can make would be to let their volunteers or non-event professionals plan a national conference and attempt to execute on delivering it. I am guilty of believing that I knew enough to be dangerous, when the reality was that I was blinded by overconfidence. Planner Hero exists and thrives as a professional outfit for one main reason; they know what they're doing, and they do it better than you could even imagine. Pro tip: go with the professionals! Go with Planner Hero!

Working with Planner Hero makes my life so much easier. Having a busy schedule and not enough time to source out the best locations for our events, it’s great to have someone you can trust and know you will get what you ask for. Planner Hero found locations for our events that we would have never found and these events made a positive impact on all of our attendees. They don’t simply help you find a venue, they are with you all the way, from helping with contract negotiations in the beginning to on-site issues when you need the right through to the end of the event.

We want to thank Melissa and her team for making our 4th Annual MOB Innovation& Collaboration Forum at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino & Hotel our best event ever!  Melissa’s leadership &organizational skills ensured every meeting, dinner, professional and leisure event was flawless and on schedule.  The event was perfect in planning and execution…and our expectations exceeded.  Melissa is the true definition of an event planning SuperHero!

Greg and his team effortlessly transformed the daunting task of planning multiple special events for our senior leadership team into a seamless experience. From locating the perfect venues to skillfully negotiating the details, Planner Hero made it all a breeze for us at Psomas.

Planner Hero is a secret weapon for sourcing. The hotel intel, comprehensive dashboard views and sensitive, responsive support team are assets that every planner needs in their arsenal
