I place great value on having a “single” connection to be the go between for other services needed by the company when planning events. Everything is always handled beautifully by Charm City in getting information quickly to/from us and the vendors; contracts signed; money exchanged; tickets in advance. Follow-up was also very much appreciated!” - MAGELLAN
