What Venues Say

KarenTotaro_hi_res (2)“Sally is the consummate professional, she knows what she wants and is clear on her expectations, which is exactly what we as the venue operator want and need in order to exceed those expectations. Had the pleasure of working with Sally in Atlantic City for several years most recently as the Show Manager for the Mid-Atlantic Hardscaping Trade Show (MAHTS). After an event Sally returned our client surveys with great information that our team would use as a blueprint for the next year. That is what we love about Sally she is very open and honest and will tell you exactly how to please her thus her client so you never have to hesitate in delivering great service. Always organized, detailed and passionate about her client and delivering top notch service with great end results…that is Sally O’Shea of O’Shea Events.”

It is always an added benefit when groups hire professional planners to coordinate their events as they bring with them the necessary tools to effectively manage the details of the events with our planners on the hotel side. This ensures each and every detail is focused on and nothing is overlooked. We as a Convention Center would highly recommend her services to anyone in the industry”

During this time, and without exception, I have found Sally O’Shea to be one of the most detail oriented professionals in all areas of meeting planning, including room block management, negotiations, contracting and overall execution of the event. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend O’Shea Events.”

Alison Suralik FullSizeRender“I have been fortunate to have worked with Sally O’Shea for over 10 years and in a number of scenarios, many of them creative and several of them high pressure. As I reflect on the years spent working side by side, certain words come to mind that represent my friend and colleague. Sally is a true professional and will always manage to balance the needs of her clients as well working with the hotels requirements. She is dynamic without being overbearing, organized, energetic and imaginative. With an extremely sound business sense, she is a stickler for details while keeping an eye on her goals and budgets. Sally has a gift for decision-making and follow-through. A sense of humor throughout the most stressful of situations, Sally takes great pride in a job well done and delights in the journey getting there together with all of her clients and hotel partners. I would highly recommend her services and talents to anyone.”
