Jennifer Lawlor - Executive Director - Alight Center, Inc - Hudson, NY
Marc Newman and BanquetStream were the answer we needed for our 2020 Fall Fundraiser. With little time to change from an in-person banquet to a virtual platform, they made the transition easy and seamless. Marc was extremely communicative and created an event that was fun and exciting for our supporters to watch. The platform itself delivers as well, as it provides donor contact information and statistics that have helped us to track exactly what happened on the night of our event and how much interaction has taken place since. The Alight Center couldn't have asked for a better experience and are appreciative for the finished product and the high-reaching efforts of Marc and the BanquetStream team.

Largest Net Income!
We can't emphasize enough the necessity of using professionals to pull off a quality and effective virtual Gala. BanquetStream provided the venue and a first class Gala speaker in Marc Newman. It all resulted in the largest net income in our history. The investment in BanquetStream was worth every penny!

A Great Success!
With our Annual Banquet scheduled for February 2021, and California in the strictest restrictions, we knew we had no choice but to do a virtual event. However, the last thing I wanted to present was "social media" live event that looked like it was a bad iphone video. Dr. Marc Newman and his team came to the rescue and prepared a very professional virtual presentation, with lots of behind the scenes support, making our first virtual event a great success. Income was equal to our past three in-person banquets. We are extremely grateful that BanquetStream rose to the challenge and provided an excellent virtual banquet platform.

Received Rave Reviews!
Who has time to learn how to create a virtual event? Not me! BanquetStream did it all for us! Dr. Marc Newman and his team listened to our needs, our vision, our goals and then, put it together in a virtual event that has received rave reviews from our viewers! The product is incredible! The service was outstanding! The process was uncomplicated! And the platform provides helpful and efficient analytics and communication tools. If you're going virtual, I highly recommend BanquetStream!
Breanne Hunt, MBA - Executive Director - Lifeline Pregnancy Help Clinic - Kirksville, MO
Marc and his team at BanquetStream were a tremendous help to our center! Like others, we found ourselves facing the challenge of creating a virtual event with little or no direction in how to make that a reality. What a relief and blessing to have BanquetStream available to put together a high quality, easily accessible presentation to utilize over the course of several months, not just one time! I would definitely recommend this service to anyone needing to make the transition to a virtual event without hesitation!
Steve Coplon, CEO - Life Choices of Memphis, Memphis, TN
The year 2020 left us all scrambling over and over again. As our annual banquet planning reached full bloom we realized we were going to have to make it a virtual event - due to Covid-19. BanquetStream became a high quality, easy to engage, one-stop-shop for us. The results far exceeded expectations. We highly recommend them for their expertise and results.
Jayme Paul - Liberty Women's Clinic, Liberty, MO
What a blessing it was to have BanquetStream as an option for our annual spring banquet. After cancelling last year and with Covid still raising concern, we were able to bring our 2021 event directly to our supporters via live stream. We prepared a clinic video update and client story, selected a speaker and then Marc and his team did the rest! We were very pleased with the program, and loved the chance to engage churches and donors in a new way, through watch parties with families, friends and youth groups. We even had one church rent a movie theater for viewing. Donations are still coming in and we hope the banquet replay will be used for more viewing in the future. We would highly recommend the BanquetStream experience!

It Was Easy!
Working with BanquetStream was easy. It was a comfort to have them putting everything together for us in a professional manner. It totally took away the stress of trying to figure it all out on our own.
We had no issues with the actual launch of our event and everyone who has seen it has given us positive feedback.
We continue to have watch parties scheduled and are more than 75% on the way to meeting our financial goal.
Deborah Townsend - Executive Director, Care Net Pregnancy of the Hudson Valley
Working with Marc and his team was fantastic. One of the comments we've heard the most from our supporters after watching the Virtual Banquet is how "professional" it was. The BanquetStream platform is seamless and Marc went over and above to improve the quality of our client testimony video. We are so grateful for this incredible service during these challenging times. If we are unable to meet in person next year, we will be back with BanquetStream for sure!

Reached More Donors!
Working with BanquetStream was a delight. From start to finish they made the process of providing a cost-effective virtual banquet seamless, and we reached more potential donors than ever before. What's more, several people plan to host watch parties because we have access to Marc's presentation until January 31, 2021. I give Marc and his team my highest recommendation.

Record Breaking Banquet!
We weren't sure what to expect for our first virtual banquet, but we are so glad we used BanquetStream. We exceeded our fundraising goal AND had a record breaking banquet for our center!

More Than Exceeded My Expectations!
BanquetStream was the solution we needed to solve the problem of having a virtual fundraiser. Marc walked us through the process step-by-step. I just had to follow his directions. He and his team put together a great event. The support I received from BanquetStream has been amazing. Our virtual fundraiser has more than exceeded my expectations. It has been a successful fundraising event for our center.
