“Our company does business with Adrian on a regular basis and I have always found him to be extremely pleasant and easy to work with. Our requests are met with the utmost urgency and have always been handled in a very timely and efficient manner. Adrian is organized and well informed and is an asset to our company. He has always been very quick to offer his assistance and go the extra mile to ensure that we are pleased with the results of his search. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking about using his service.”

Educational Tours & Travel Corporation

“I am writing on behalf of Adrian Morris of CMP Meetings. I work very closely with Adrian almost on a daily basis booking properties in Washington DC, Boston, and New York. As a youth tour operator, we have very specific requirements of any of the properties we use, as well as needing unique contract amendments. Adrian CONSTANTLY goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that out groups are taken care of both before and during their travel dates. I always know that if I have ANY problems or concerns, no matter how small, I can depend on Adrian to take care of them immediately. With all of the groups that I have to find properties for, I can honestly say that I could not do my job without him. Adrian is a huge asset to CMP Meetings as well as to Sonshine Tours!!!”

“Over the past year, I have worked with several people to find hotel space for the groups that my company puts out in New York in Washington, DC. Out of all the people I’ve contacted, Adrian is the ONLY one who not only responds in a timely fashion, but actually listens to what I need and does his best to comply. Adrian saves me hours of time searching for properties for my groups and his incredible knowledge and thorough research on the properties he’s representing makes me breathe easier knowing that my clients are in good hands. I heartily recommend Adrian to anyone – for both the amazing job he does and the fact that it’s always done with a smile!”

“I have been working with Adrian for over a year now and have nothing but positive things to say about him. Finding hotel rooms can be aggravating and time consuming and using Adrian means that my work is reduced to a simple email to him. When I send a lead, he sends the dates and specifications out to various hotels and then comes back to me with a detailed list of options that often include hotel websites, breakfast options, location, and any other relevant details. I have used other hotel booking services and his information always comes back more complete and more professional looking than the rest. His services also do not stop with the initial hotel contract. He also serves as a liaison between myself and the hotel when it comes to adjusting the contract, adding or subtracting rooms, or making sure that the hotel has all the specifics for each particular group. And the best part about his services is that is does not cost anything. The hotels offer the same rates with or without his service.”

“We have utilized CMP Meeting Services for both of our associations: (1) Financial & Security Products Association (FSPA) and (2) Automated Solutions Association (ASA). Each and every year, your company locates an outstanding property for our conferences and meetings at extremely attractive pricing. In addition, the post-contract and on-site assistance provided by CMP Meeting Services is invaluable to me as a conference and trade-show planner.”

“All of the many events I have scheduled through CMP Meeting Services have been a complete success because of their professionalism, willingness to learn the client’s requirements and outstanding relationships they have built in the hospitality industry.”

Center for Leadership & Management, USDA Graduate School

“CMP has successfully negotiated space/room contracts for us for the past several years. Because they book numerous meetings and events each year, they are well-known and well respected by hotels throughout the country. Their high usage volume provides them with considerably more negotiation power than we hold with producing only one or two meetings each year. CMP has provided us with very timely response, better-than-expected rates and has been very helpful… and has made me look like a genius to my board.”

National Dental EDI Council

“With only one week’s notice, I couldn’t believe how wonderful everything was. Several of our clients were amazed at how you transformed the yard into an island getaway. The palm trees, the lights, the food, oh and the music, everything was so great. Thank you once again for making the party such a success.”

Fairfield Homes

“One of my friends named her business “Making Life Easier” and that is what CMP has done for me. Gone are the days of contacting hotels and CVBs, lining up visits and then trying to keep track of everything. I’ve made my life easier and gotten exceptional customer service in the process. What more could one ask? Great rates, they’ve gotten those for me, too.”

U.S. Assoc. for Small Business Entrepreneurship

“David Bruce and the team at CMP have been a lifesaver for me. As the executive director of an association, they have saved me time and more importantly, money through their knowledge of the industry and their savvy negotiation skills. Also, it seems as though they know everyone in the business which has been helpful on numerous occasions. I highly commend CMP for anything to do with meeting/event planning.”

OSAP and OSAP Foundation

“The staff of CMP are an amazing asset to FAA. They work hand and hand with our team. I tell my team and anyone having conference “tell them what you need and get out of the way”, they will get it done. Way to go CMP. Thanks for making us look good.”

“As a member of the management team for our organization, I am charged with constantly working to find more efficient, cost-effective means to service our membership’s needs. CMP has been an invaluable asset for accomplishing these tasks. They truly act in the best interest of our organization and treat our resources as their own with regards to negotiations for our benefit. CMP has also demonstrated their abilities in functioning as a part of our team and we very much consider them to be a part of our family. They have been responsive to every request and question. Their involvement in our organization has had a definite positive impact.”

“David has found meeting sites for Nutricia’s sales, marketing and executive team on many occasions. I have been 100% satisfied working with David. He always looks into every location, give expert guidance and leads you to choose the best possible location for your meeting. David takes his time and gets to understand the type of group he is working with so he can provide the very best options, not just a random bunch of hotels. David is your man if you need your meeting or event to be a success.”

Nutricia North America

“I love working with David. He knows the true value of partnership, reliability, and commitment. He knows the fine line between negotiating a great value for his customer to create the win, as well as keeping his hotel partners happy too. He knows his craft, there is no denying that. His customers love him, and he makes working with CMP Planners fun for everyone, and when doing business is fun, everyone is engaged.”

He is very organized, has a great mind for details and goes out of his way to ensure I have the peace of mind to do my job. I highly recommend Bob, his colleague, David Bruce, and the team of CMP.”

Organization for Safety Aspesis Prevention

“Bob is great with the details and follows up with the client as well as the hotel. Whatever I needed, including unusual requests from our attendees, Bob has handled without a problem. He worked out problem details with the hotel, including billing items, as well as made sure everything went smoothly and better than expected. I’ve hired Bob more than once in 2011 and will use him again in 2012 for other conferences. His expertise and knowledge in the industry are a great asset as well as his ability to listen to the client. I’ve enjoyed and will continue to enjoy working with Bob.”
