"Thank you so much for such a wonderful opportunity! - My son Paul had such a fantastic time swimming in the pool with Mr. Phelps! - Both my daughter Anna and my son Paul loved having their picture taken with Mr. Phelps and please forward their heartfelt thanks to him. - Having been to other "celebrity" events I have to say how spectacular Sunday was and especially how heartwarming it was to watch Mr. Phelps hold the 4 year old beginner swimmers as well as take time to high five the children and address them face to face - his personality was quite endearing and very much appreciated! - Again thank you & your staff for all your time and energy and please forward our greatest thanks to Mr. Phelps "

"Thank you again for handling our company’s annual holiday party. For the third consecutive year we had a truly memorable party with phenomenal food and the hands on care that you always provide.

I take pride in the business relationship that we have developed over the years and give EMRG referrals whenever the opportunity presents itself. It is refreshing to know that if I have a company event or a simple corporate dinner I can make one phone call and be comfortable that our reservation will be booked at any one of the top spaces in the city knowing myself and my clients will be received with a warm greeting and that extra special service that one can only expect when dealing with your group."

"Thank you so much for helping to plan our office’s holiday party at Philippe. From start to finish, every detail was handled with simplicity and grace. We were delighted to be able to secure the space and menu that we desired for the date and time we preferred, as well as have input on smaller details such as the music and general decorations. The staff at Philippe was very attentive and accommodating, proving that Philippe is avenue that both our office and your company should continue to work with in the future. All of my experiences with events and venues that you have personally been involved with have been excellent from arrival to departure, and I am always happy to recommend your services to individuals who I come into contact with. EMRG Media has once again set the bar for excellence in preparation and execution of an event in New York City. I know I speak on behalf of my colleagues when I thank you for the excellent job you and your team did. We look forward to working with you again in the future."

EMRG Media often calls me with prospective events and I have successfully booked many of them during the past two years. The cost of advertising pays for itself with the amount of booked parties I receive."
