"It's always a pleasure working with Joe and PlanItExpo. Due to our ongoing growth and customer demands, MarshmallowMBA has limited the number of in-person wedding events we attend. There is never a question between attending a PlanItExpo event and any other company's event. Their care for exhibitors is world-class and we appreciate how carefully shows are curated. Joe has a staff who are generous and warm. We especially appreciate their investment in events in southern New Jersey which MarshmallowMBA sees many hidden gems for wedding venues and vendors. We look forward to continued success with our partnership."
Amy Trout Hughes, CEO - MarshmallowMBA
"Thank you Joe for everything, it was such a pleasure to work with a wonderful and reputable company! Derin and myself were grateful enough to be a vendor during the Martell's Waters Edge Expo on February 24,2021. During these unforeseen times and difficult circumstances with the pandemic occurring, PlanIt Expo with the help of Martell's hosted a well rounded event managing all safety precautions to keep vendors and guests happy and safe. It was truly an amazing event filled with so much joy from all. We look forward to working with you all again!"

"Mary Ellen and I would like to reserve space for your Jan. 17, 2021 Tropicana Show.
We liked the spot we had for the show and would like to keep it for next year.

We appreciate the two tables and would like to keep that next year if possible.

"The Melting Pot has been participating with Plan It Expos for several years now. It has been nothing short of a wonderful experience. The friendly and personable staff is always available to not only set the vendors up for success, but to help with any issues that arise during the shows themselves. Their focus is to make sure that your business shines and gets the best exposure possible. Plan It Expo also provides us with the ability of multi-regional exposure. Being from a destination location like Atlantic City it is very important for us to have a presence in multiple markets across southern New Jersey, and Plan It Expos allows us to do just that. We have seen a significant increase in our large party reservations and bookings ranging from bachelor/bachelorette parties, wedding dinners, rehearsal dinners, and even anniversary and engagement parties. We are proud to be part of the Plan It Expo team and value them as an esteemed partner in our marketing efforts."
Theresa Mobilio - Director of Marketing, ABL Brands/The Melting Pot of Atlantic City

"I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to PlanIt Expo for putting on such a great event. I participated in other events, however, they cannot hold a candle to the team that put this event together. PlanIt Expo brought exactly what we were looking for to the table; brides, vendors, and excitement! You helped my business grow and really got our company name out there to the people who need our services the most! Your bridal show was one of the most organized and productive events I have had the pleasure to work with. I appreciate all you did to help our business grow and cannot wait to continue working with you and your staff in the upcoming years!"

"...for over 10 years. "
"I have been an exhibitor at PlanIt Expo Bridal shows for over 10 years. I have a small DJ business who has reaped the benefits of working with PlanIt Expo. Our wedding business has increased and people planning on getting married are now aware of who we are thanks to our exposure at the bridal shows. The shows are strongly attended and we get an average of 15-20 strong leads just from each show we participate in. We also promptly receive the full bridal show list in a very prompt manner from PlanIt Expo. The staff is incredibly accommodating and works with us as very few companies do. They handle our questions with care and professionalism, and respond to any needs we may have for each show. This year my family was bless with our 1st daughter. During this time, there were times when I needed some flexibility from PlanIt Expo. I can't say enough about how sensitive they were to our situation. I plan on staying loyal to PlanIt Expo for years to come and despite being made many offers, will remain part of the family of vendors that register with PlanIt Expo."
Jonathon - DJ Johnny's Magic Moments

"First and foremost, I'd like to thank you for the opportunity for us to participate in the bridal show you and your staff arranged. It was very well organized and coordinated to the minute detail. We set up our table to be a success and it turned out to be one of the hottest tables at the event. My colleagues and I were so pleased. The opportunity for us to promote our Slumber Parties, Inc. business and get up close and personal with all the brides from the show was an awesome experience and we hope that in the future we can meet in another one of your wonderful shows and have a similar experience. Thank you again for the chance to share with your company and the bridal public our products and services."

"...By far the BEST..."
I want to compliment you on your show. That is the third one that I have done and by far the best that I have ever been to. The flow of the people coming in allowed for us to really talk with the brides/family. The layout of the tables was great. The food was awesome!!! I really had a great time. I am making some phone calls tonight to follow up on some people who were interested in having some parties before Valentines day. I threw out a unique idea that a few were interested in so we shall see. I will stay in touch and let you know how the follow ups go. It was nice to meet you!! Thanks again for all of your support!!

It is always such a pleasure to work with you and the whole team. We love being a part of it, and are looking forward to the show on the 15th. Just let me know what you need and we will make it happen :)
Victoria Walker - The Bradford Estate
That show was EXCELLENT! I think that is the best show I have ever attended. You must have worked your butt off selling all those exhibitors. I don't know how many leads I got, but I know it's more than any other show I have ever done.
You are the BEST!
