“Fourth Wall Events has been very proud to win the Crystal Award 3 times. It is an honor to be included in the prestigious list of winners, and to see the validation of the hard work of our amazing team. As much as we love the accolades of our clients, the recognition of our peers feels more exciting and at the same time more humbling. When we won our first Crystal Award, we were relatively unknown. We were able to use the news of our win to build our credibility within the community and allow us to sell to larger clients who might not have heard of us. Being involved in the Crystal Awards has been an amazing experience for us.” – Jeff Gruberman, President, Fourth Wall Events, USA.

It is also recognition for the all the hard work, long hours and dedication that is required to deliver a successful and motivational trip.” – Yolanda Woeke-Jacobs, Director Sales & Marketing, Dragonfly Africa, South Africa
“Our company was awarded three times with the prestigious Crystal Award. As a full service Incentive & Marketing Company operating in Latin America, this recognition was a great push to reinforce the commercial relationship with those companies who trusted us. We took advantage of the great media exposure related with the award and used the Crystals as a sales pitch of why other clients should work with us. Even if you do not win, just submitting your project and comparing it to other winning entries will provide valuable insights about how to improve your presentations.” Alejandro Verzoub, President, AV Business & Communications, Argentina
"China Star won a Crystal Award in 2014 and it was big news in the MICE industry of China. We are very proud of this award, which always encourages the team to work harder and do better. The award helps us a lot to win the competition whenever we are involved in bidding for an event or a conference. For Chinese clients who don’t know too much about the awards, they always listen carefully and nod to accept the SITE awards’ authority. For foreign clients especially for those who know SITE Crystal Awards, they immediately show their interest in China Star. The award has brought China Star business and respect. We definitely will do it again." - Liu Ping, President, China Star, Beijing, China
"The Crystal Award is extremely prestigious recognition of the ability to deliver a world-class event by a practicing Incentive Travel Specialist. As a professional in this field, Inspiration India is honored to have been selected to receive this recognition in both 2012 & 2015. The awards were testimony to our team’s expertise in meeting the exacting needs of our clients and delivering quality and creativity that was far beyond expectations. These awards have given us enormous international exposure and being felicitated in the company of our peers has been a matter of great pride." – Anup Nair, Managing Director, Inspiration India, Gurgaon, India
“ Winning a Crystal Award is recognition not only of a company’s professionalism in organizing a great incentive travel experience, but also acknowledgement by industry experts that what has been achieved is truly exceptional. Large budgets and fancy galas are no longer sufficient to win. The Crystal Award entry is a team effort - the submission criteria requires input in many areas, including actual business benefits, and involve both the client and suppliers. We are honored to have been recognized on several occasions and the trophies we proudly display in our meeting room are a constant reminder of what we can and continue to strive to achieve. I would encourage those that feel that their program pushed the limits, overcame huge obstacles or contributed in some significant manner to seriously consider entering.” – Daryl Keywood, Managing Director & CEO, Walthers DBS, Southern Africa
