Andrea Caron, along with VIP Event Services, organized and hosted my recent office holiday party. It was an excellent experience!!
Andrea and her staff handled all of the details, from the venue location, the theme, food, etc.... What made the event memorable were the special touches. Andrea used her unique talents and extensive network within the hospitality and entertainment industry to give my guests a night to remember. Right down to sourcing out and hiring the groups favourite band!!
Offering a true 'experience' to our guests has become an increasingly challenging ordeal. Andrea's professionalism and attention to detail took all of the effort out of organizing and managing this season's event. Her services extended to include managing the budget, ensuring that all of the vendors were appropriately paid and that event sponsors were co-ordinated. These are time consuming tasks that reveal the true value of the service that VIP provides their clients.
This was the first event that Andrea has organized for us. Given my experience, there will be many more.

Over the past several years Miss Caron has planned many events through our catering organization. We have locations from Ajax to Ancaster and have worked with many events planners throughout. In respect to Miss Caron, she has by far an exemplary character and in my opinion, stands beyond her peers.
Her organizational skills and adaptability are second to none. I have seen her displaying great patience, observation and a caring attitude to both her clients and venue where she is executing her event, having a great understanding giving her the ability to go beyond expectations.
Andrea has a wonderful personality with great ambition; any company would benefit from her skills and experiences.
If she decided to no longer work independently, I would most definitely offer her a position at one of our locations.

It is with great pleasure that I provide a recommendation for Andrea Caron. I am confident that Ms. Caron’s vast experience as an Event Planner will benefit any organization looking to host successful and creative special events.
I personally have had the advantage of experiencing and enjoying Ms. Caron’s innovation and creative approach to events. Among various fundraisers and causes, I attended a chartered yacht adventure that Ms. Caron solely organized. Not a detail went overlooked. The cuisine was both exceptional and tailored according to the participants’ taste. The activities she organized such as swimming with the sharks and scenic jet ski outings, were both adventurous and memorable. In the months and weeks leading up to the event, Ms. Caron took exceptional care and diligence in familiarizing herself with the participants’ specific interests, hobbies and tastes. She then organized stimulating attractions in accordance with her participants’ desires. Ms. Caron’s attention to detail is impeccable.
As an astute and accomplished businessperson with excellent communication skills, Ms. Caron is gifted in relating to people from diverse cultures, various professional backgrounds and assorted age groups. She has a natural propensity for making people feel comfortable. Ms. Caron is a highly energetic person who is on top of trends, highly resourceful, well connected and has a great enthusiasm for seeing people happy. This translates into an outstanding Event Planner. I highly recommend her services and am certain she would be a great asset to any company looking for a trustworthy, dynamic and innovative Event Planner.
To Whom It May Concern,
I have had the pleasure of working with Andrea and her team at VIP Hosting on several occasions over the past couple years.
The professionalism and structure she creates during an event is a unique talent in this business. She is available at all times prior to, during and after the event for assistance and direction.
Working under pressure is one of Andrea’s strongest abilities. She shows no concern or stress and treats all staff with the same respect and courtesy as to our guests. Her demeanor is genuinely pleasant and inviting and her presence makes an entire room feel at ease.
Her creative ideas and over the top day trips have shown how versatile her company can be while still maintaining a budget. An event that stands out was a chartered yacht we worked together on. The entire week was organized with adventures, rest and relaxation, once in a lifetime experiences and an enormous selection of different food types for all our passengers. The guests had many options to choose from based on their likes and dislikes. It was an amazing event and will not be forgotten by anyone who attended.
I look forward to many more opportunities to work with Andrea and her team in the future.

I met Andrea Caron 8 years ago when we were both working in the insurance industry. At the time, she was working at RBC Insurance in the group benefits area and I was an insurance broker. At RBC Insurance, Andrea worked directly with clients and brokers where a big part of her job was finding creative solutions to help meet clients and advisors needs and expectations.
During her tenure at RBC Insurance Andrea became a mom to two beautiful children who she unconditionally adores.
Andrea has organized many events to support her children’s schools and activities, fundraisers for hockey and dance, as well as much-needed social events for parents! You can count on Andrea to be organized, focused and patient during both the planning and the execution of the event.
Also at RBC Insurance, she organized many functions, both for work events like fundraisers, and for colleagues, such as showers. Andrea will always hit the ground running; there is no deadline or budget she can’t meet.
Andrea continues to organize many events for friends and family. She is dedicated, she is punctual and she has an incredible eye for detail. She really has an amazing sense of understanding the appropriate theme or mood for your event.
I highly recommend you hire Andrea to plan your event. I deeply respect and trust Andrea and I am confident she will make your event everything you want – and more…
