Elizabeth Korondy with Discover Events Group was recently contracted to operate a 550 person, two-day conference at the InterContinental hotel in San Francisco. The group's final evening celebration took place on Alcatraz Island.
The private event included a tour of the prison, dinner in the New Industries Building with dessert on the Play Grounds overlooking the San Francisco Bay.
"To plan an event of this magnitude required the ability to be extremely organized, capable of anticipating the client's needs and maintaining focus on the end result. We were able to capture exactly what the client had envisioned and provided a memorable experience for their guests," stated Elizabeth.
