    " There are concierge services all over the place, but it’s hard to imagine a team that could come through for us at the level that your team at Concierge Tbilisi did. Our group is an unusual one and we aim high and even absurd you could say. You guys delivered an experience that will last for all of us forever. We fell in love with Georgia and the Georgian people and I can’t imagine it would have been the same or close without you. The investment is an interesting idea and will discuss it with the squad. Might be a fun way to tie us back. "

    Before addressing Concierge Tbilisi, we analyzed our internal resources and realized we needed a company capable of handling taught deadlines, stressful tasks, multiple tasks, and interests of various stakeholders. Concierge Tbilisi was the team to be able to deliver all above mentioned in the time and without extra stress.

     


    The friendly attitude and the smile they handled the situation on top of their professionalism was remarkable. Our event was one of a kind, so far, implemented ones in Georgia it was a G2G event, the celebration of the partnership between Georgia and Germany involving various stakeholders, from the public, civil, private and government sides. The company won the tender; they were compliant with our requirements; they had the resources, the concept, and the experience necessary for the task.

     


    For me, the CT work did not come as a surprise since I had some experience working with them during my time when I used to lead the comms unit for the EU Delegation to Georgia. However, I was impressed by their ability to manage and coordinate multiple tasks under stress, the most significant event in Georgia, in the field of vocational education, put on all of us.


    I would choose, with no hesitation, CT as my partner company in the future endeavors. And, I would recommend them to my friends, what I did some time ago.
