They have helped us plan and execute just about every type of event. From company-wide sales meetings (both in person and virtually) to holiday parties and goodie boxes for our team – no task is too big or too small. The team is always diligent and thorough throughout the planning process and can quickly pivot, ensuring every event is a success. The positive feedback we receive after each event reflects their hard work, creativity and ability to deliver. The Hutton Group is the best in the business.”

And, Carrie Heiden from Washington, D.C-based CSI DMC, said, “I had every confidence placing one of our best clients in The Hutton Group’s hands for its Pittsburgh program.
