“Crescendo Events brought our vision into reality. We were hosting the inaugural annual event for our organization. We were bringing students from across Atlantic Canada to meet leading Canadian financial institutions, and “good enough” would not be acceptable. We needed perfection, and that’s exactly what Crescendo delivered.
It was clear to us that Kaitlyn took genuine interest in our cause. She worked to create an event that would truly encapsulate the spirit of our organization. For instance, when we determined we wanted the event to feel intimate, Kaitlyn arranged for a venue and setup that would facilitate genuine personal interactions between the students and corporations. Kaitlyn effortlessly balanced the big picture items (e.g., venue booking, food & beverage, event signage) with the minute details (e.g., name tags). She managed timelines and gating items, so everything was planned, booked, ordered and printed well in advance, ensuring smooth execution. After everything was planned, Kaitlyn went the extra mile throughout the actual event, ensuring everything stayed on-schedule with zero hiccoughs.
Kaitlyn’s experience can’t be overstated. She guided us in putting together an event that far-exceeded anything we could have envisioned on our own. Crescendo allowed us to be professional, polished and legitimate for our inaugural event, and for that, we are tremendously grateful.”

“Crescendo Events provided us with excellent support leading up to and throughout our Annual Conference. Kaitlyn’s expertise, amazing organizational skills, guidance and advice, as well as her calm and thoughtful onsite approach truly contributed to the Canadian Nutrition Society being able to host a very successful conference. The CNS Staff and Board of Directors heard many comments from delegates and the Halifax Convention Centre staff about the high level of professionalism and excellent service that they received from Crescendo Events and the team of Kaitlyn and Ashley.
The CNS truly enjoyed working with them and hope to do so again with future events. We would recommend Kaitlyn and Crescendo Events without hesitation.

“I learned quickly the value of calling in an expert event organizer when I sat down with Kaitlyn for the first time to talk about a large student entrepreneurship competition event I was tasked with planning. From preliminary brainstorming, timelines, budgeting, right down to post-event wrap up and follow-ups, everything went seamlessly working with Kaitlyn and Crescendo Events. She will ask the right questions, make suggestions, offer solutions and put together an incredible event for you or with you.”

“Crescendo events put together an incredible event for us at the inaugural Global Student Entrepreneur Awards in Halifax. As a small chapter hosting this global program’s regional competition in Atlantic for the first time, we managed to have such a polished and well-run event that the national organization showcases our chapter now as ‘how-to’ for others launching the GSEA Competition in their region – thanks to Crescendo. We never could have pulled off an event of this magnitude without your expertise”
