“As an exhibitor, our experience in working with Innovative Conferences and Communications has been nothing but positive. From pre-conference communications and registration, through logistics planning and execution, the staff at INNOVCC are always professional, timely and genuinely interested in ensuring a smooth and successful event. It is rare to find an events planning company as interested in the needs and requirements of the vendor presence as they are to those of the organizers and attendees. We look forward to exhibiting with Innovative Conferences and Communications in the future and would recommend them to any organization considering their services.”

David Murphy, Marketing Manager, Vantage Endoscopy Inc., CSGNA 2013

I have to say that I have never been more impressed by the strong communication, clearly marked timelines and wonderful reception. I knew what you needed and where to be. This is invaluable to me. I want to do a great job for you and the conference team, and you made that possible. Thank you, Heather. It’s greatly appreciated.”

Jennifer Sanford, Open Door Coaching, Speaker at CSGNA 2013 – Banff, Alberta

“We do approximately 30 conferences a year and Heather Reid (Innovative Conferences & Communications) is the best conference organizer that we have come across. Very attentive to every detail. Others could learn a lot from her!!”

Martin Paul Onrot, President, Professional Orthopedic Products

“I am so happy with how professional our conferences have become with you at the helm. Now the energies of the Planning Committees can be focused on planning an outstanding educational program. I envision our conferences getting bigger and better every year. I am sure that Mabel and Lisa will enjoy working with you as much as I have.”

Joanne Glen RN CGN(C) President 2010 – 2012

“Thank you very much Heather for a very thoroughly thought out budget. You certainly captured items that I would not have thought of until the last minute. I know we benefit from your vast experience with conference planning and I am happy to have you aboard this journey.”


“Thanks for helping put on a wonderful event …. the whole weekend went smoothly, in large part, because of your planning and attention to detail.”

Dr. Michael Czarnota, PhD, Faculty of London Hockey Concussion Summit 2009

Delegate, CSGNA 2009

“To the organizer, thank you so much. All your efforts are very much appreciated.”
Delegate, CANNT 2008

“Having had this conference planning experience with a conference planner, I don’t think the conference planning committee could perform the duties without the expertise of a planner who conducts conferences as her work. As CANNT members, we are all dedicated professional staff performing very hectic and demanding positions in our renal programs. We are not experts at planning conferences of this magnitude, nor can we dedicate the required time to make the annual conferences as successful as they have been. I am thankful that CANNT members saw the need to invest in the conference planner, and most of all, we were so fortunate to have found such an expert and most pleasant planner with whom to work. Here’s to Heather Reid!”

Karen Peters, Co-Chair of CANNT 2006

“Thank you so much for creating such a fantastic atmosphere for my retirement party. The best wishes “bird house cards” were amazing and the theme “Flying the Coop” was awesome. Thanks again for creating memories that will last forever.”
Jim Harrington, Lovers AtWork Office Furniture

“My compliments to the Planning Committee and Heather Reid. This was a wonderful conference: excellent speakers; a good variety of concurrent session topics; things ran very smoothly.”

Delegate, CANNT 2006
