Kiersa was invaluable to us, both during the planning phase and the conference itself. Our event drew many more participants than we anticipated (over 800!), and Kiersa handled every detail and unexpected situation with efficiency and unflappable good humor. She somehow managed to be everywhere we needed her, and put out fires before we even knew they were coming. Kiersa was an integral part of our team – she made us look like we threw this kind of event every year! – and we couldn’t have done it without her.”

Marianne Luft

Assistant Director, Humane Alliance of WNC

“I first hired Kiersa in 2008 when I was hosting small retreats for 20-35 people several times a year. She stepped up to the plate big time. She expertly planned, organized and managed the three days, as well as the sometimes chaotic frazzled people who would arrive!

My work and service has now grown to the point where my company is now hosting two-day retreats many times a year for hundreds of people at a time. Kiersa continues to be a key member of our team.

Here’s why: Kiersa’s knowledge of the area, great relationships with management teams at event sites – as well as her unending pool of resources makes my life easier, saves my business thousands of dollars over and over again, and keeps my whole team from wasting time.

Event planning is a tough game. Kiersa handles unusual requests and the inevitable last minute challenges with unruffled grace and ease…always with a crazy positive attitude and genuine smile on her face.

Kiersa’s ability to unobtrusively and efficiently manage everything on site guarantees that all goes according to plan so my clients have the best event experience possible.

The success of your business is dependent upon the experience your clients have. That means your events have to be amazing! And that means the right event planning company is essential. I have absolute confidence with Events by Kiersa on my team.”

Christine Kane

President & Founder, Uplevel YOU

“I want to thank you for the wonderful energy and planning you put forth in designing the 2012 Asheville Wine and Food Festival Grand Tasting at the US Cellular Center, downtown Asheville. The teams you brought in to decorate the arena, the cooperation you fostered between various companies, and the skill with which you arranged the exhibits, allowed the attendees to rank the festival as one of the best in the southeast. Thank you for your attention to detail, your professionalism in incorporating the many moving parts of the “Fashion Show” into the already crowded program, and your handling of breakdown long after everyone had left the building!”

Bob Bowles

Festival Founder and Director , Asheville Wine and Food Festival

“Events by Kiersa selected the perfect meeting space for our recent management retreat at The Biltmore Estate. Kiersa negotiated the best room rates for the group and handled all the meeting logistics, skillfully planning every detail. Her vast knowledge of the Asheville area provided us with a variety of activities to enjoy together, including white water rafting, fly fishing, golfing and wine tastings, as well as great dining at local restaurants. Kiersa is efficient, highly organized and a pleasure to work with. The retreat was a memorable success for the entire group! Kiersa has certainly set the bar high for the next one!”
