Meeting Planner Testimonials
"I have been planning Association meetings, conferences and
events for nearly 30 years and have been working with Barb Gendron
for most of that time. Barb's work is thorough, efficient and very
professional. She goes to any length to help in any area I have
requested assistance, be it meeting or guest rooms, locations or
local activities. I appreciate the close working relationship I
have always had with Barb and, above all, value her friendship.
Barb's level of expertise in the hospitality industry will make me
continue to put her at the top of my list when I think of sales
directors I can trust and turn to for fair and accommodating
results for our Association."

"As the Executive Director for the Opticians Association of
Washington's bi-annual conferences I have had the pleasure of
working with Barb Gendron and would highly recommend her services
to anyone planning meetings.
The Red Lion has been fantastic to work with. From the sales
coordinator to the banquet staff, everyone works hard to exceed
your expectations. Regardless of which Red Lion Hotel you select
you can count on great service, clean comfortable rooms, great
conference food, and you will always be treated like a VIP. I love
working with Barb and with Red Lion Hotels."
