I want to thank the entire Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau staff for their efforts in helping to make our 2016 USS Elokomin AO-55 reunion an overwhelming success. Frankly, at first I was not enthused about locating our reunion in Lisle as it is a little drive from the airports and the two places we wanted to visit, Great Lakes Naval Base and the Museum of Science & Industry. After talking with the sales manager and visiting three of the Hotels the CVB set up for us to inspect, we decided to accept the added travel times in exchange for great facilities that were available in Lisle. Our members, unfamiliar with the area, were very pleased with the guide books and other information that you provided in the goodie bags and delivered to the hotel. I had never heard of Cantigny Park and the First Division Museum before we visited the area on our inspection trip. As it turned out, Cantigny was the highlight of the trip for many of our shipmates. When the reunion is in Chicago again, Lisle CVy will get the first call. I will not hesitate to do it all over again and I can’t think of anything I would want to change. Thanks again to all of you who helped me put together a memorable reunion for our group.
The Sheraton Lisle Hotel was the perfect backdrop for our Sisterhood Retreat. The staff was very personable and accommodating before, during and after our stay. The food, ambiance and hotel accommodations exceeded our expectations. Thanks for providing a five-star experience!
Last week we held our convention at the Hyatt Regency Lisle Hotel. Prior to the convention I received a call from Katie Palombit with information of how the LCVB could assist. This was a first as nothing or the sort had ever been offered in any other venue we have used in the past.
Katie offered to provide us with Lisle Visitor Guides and pens for our attendees. The registration packets had a already been assembled but Katie and Robin Friday offered their time to come and insert the Lisle Visitor Guides and pens in each packet prior to when the participant registration began. Katie and Robin were very professional, personable and courteous.
Katie and Robin both made a follow-up visit and brought a copy of the Daily Herald article that was written about the convention. This was very much appreciated. Please know that Katie and Robin are wonderful ambassadors for the Village of Lisle.
As we will be using the same venue for our 2017 convention, we look forward to continuing this beneficial and worthwhile relationship with you very hospital Village. I express my personal thanks to Katie and also Robin for their kind assistance and representation of the Village of Lisle.
