Haute Dokimazo was all the buzz at the last SITE SoCal luncheon. After all of us planners got over our anxiety of not being able to actually plan the event, it went great! To be honest, from a Hotel Sales Manager perspective, we were really a dream client.
“How many people and what type of set up do you need for the break outs?”

Was it successful? YAAAAS! Sometimes the only real contact you get at these networking events is by passing the rolls during the speaker’s presentation, and reapplying lipstick together in the bathroom.

Of course; this is Southern California! Do I deem it worthy? Absolutely!
