Very Hospitable and Accomodating

I worked with Merrissa Burleigh, Sarah Utterback, and Kassa throughout the process of this event. All three women were incredibly friendly and willing to work with any issues and/or problems that arose throughout the planning process. The night went fairly smoothly; I only have a few concerns to bring up.
First, I had asked for some ticket takers to be available for the event. It appeared that there weren't any workers that were ready and prepared to take tickets - it seemed very thrown together and in the moment.
Second, I had requested for meal cards to be handed out to guests as they arrived to differentiate who had what meal. These were not printed out, so the ticket takers ended up handing out cheap raffle tickets with the dinner preference written out in ballpoint pen on the back.
Third, dinner took a bit longer than I anticipated. I had asked for it to be served at 6:30, but I didn't see anyone get served until about 6:37 or so. That is perhaps just some misunderstanding on my part about the logistics and behind-the-scenes work that goes into serving food, which I gained some perspective on after speaking with Kassa.
Other than these concerns, I felt very welcomed by the staff at the Convention Center and will definitely consider the venue for future events.
