We’re back with another vendor highlight and this time we’re featuring the awesome team at COMCOR Event and Meeting Production, Inc., South Florida’s premier designer and producer of special events, corporate meetings and incentive programs. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: one of the things we love about Cold Stone Creamery catering is that we get to work with so many amazing South Florida vendors for weddings, birthday parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, corporate events and more, and we love working with COMCOR and founder Mona S. Meretsky.
COMCOR Consulting Services, Inc. ("CCSI") was founded in 1999 when Mona felt the knowledge garnered during her quarter of a century in event and meeting production could be used to assist others in the industry. Since its inception, CCSI, has been called upon to consult in all aspects of event production including: creative concept development and branding; marketing of venues and events; strategizing in the space planning and design or re-design of event facilities; training staff for corporations who want to downsize or bring their event and meeting planning in-house, as well as assisting those who need specific training (especially in negotiations and contracting); as well as reviewing the quality of service provided at hotels and conference/event facilities.
A leader in the events industry, Meretsky is called upon for speaking engagements, (2015 will be her 24th consecutive year as a Presenter at The Special Event conference) and is often quoted in industry publications. She is one of only 24 industry professionals ever honored by Special Events magazine with the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’. In 2010, Mona was inducted into the Inaugural BizBash FL ‘Hall of Fame.’ Mona’s accomplishments also include her induction into the Events Industry ‘Hall of Fame’ by Event Solutions magazine and she was voted ‘Event Planner of the Year’ by her peers. In 2013, Mona was appointed to the 1st National Advisory Board for BizBash Media. Meretsky is one of less than 386 worldwide with the CSEP (Certified Special Events Professional) certification.
Always looking for new venues in which to hold events, she is currently acting as the Premier Event Planner for a fabulous new facility in Fort Lauderdale, Artblend Gallery. This contemporary Fine Art gallery is a perfect location for any event whether it is corporate, social or non-profit. The venue is 4250 square feet of pristine, flexible space with marble floors, granite counter tops, a complete sound system, Wi-Fi access, stainless steel lighting and great access for load in. Whether it is a reception for 200 or a sit-down for 150, this undiscovered gem is ideal and available both during the day and evening.
All in all, if you’re looking to hold an event, you can’t go wrong with Mona and COMCOR, and of course you can't forget the Cold Stone catering to go with it! Aside from the fact that Mona runs an amazing business that puts on events with a level of quality that can’t be matched, she and her team are an absolute blast to work with.
