“The Buzz”

“I have truly enjoyed my relationship with TriStar for the past nine years. They have consistently been able to analyze and create additional advertising and promotional possibilities for their clients. This has allowed the clients to maximize their exposure, both locally and nationally, while keeping budgetary constraints in mind.”

Mike Gordon / President
Chicago Wolves

“Working with TriStar to promote and increase sales of our new Low Carb Pasta line was a snap. With a limited budget, TriStar maximized our exposure and introduced us into marketing outlets we had never thought of.”

Lee Mugnolo / Sr. Vice President
Racconto Italian Imports

N-1 Technologies

“TriStar was an integral part of our company‘s initial marketing program. From marketing strategy, logo design, print materials to our website - TriStar pulled it all together to create the image we were looking for. TriStar made sure that all aspects of the project went off seamlessly and all parts were completed on time and on budget. In addition, TriStar was an integral part of our company‘s first annual off-site sales kick-off event. TriStar took care of everything from the transportation, hotel, meeting facilities, recreational activities - as well as a fantastic “Kick-Off” party with great cuisine and live entertainment. TriStar delivered!”

Jeff Wolinski / Managing Partner

“TriStar came to the International Home & Housewares Show highly recommended, and we were not disappointed. TriStar was a critical component in kitchen set up, chef scheduling and on-site management for our GOHO Celebrity Cooking Theater. TriStar's on-site theatre helped prepare the kitchen, which was created and built specifically for the event. They ensured that presentations ran smoothly, efficiently and ontime, while allowing me to spend time with my exhibitors and on other responsibilities.”

“The groundwork for TriStar to manage a more enhanced “Downtown GOHO Celebrity Cooking Theater” at next year’s show has already begun! We are looking forward to working with TriStar for years to come!”

Emily Patten / Trade Show Manager
International Home & Housewares Show

Cambridge Homes

I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding service you provided Cambridge Homes. We wanted to have an employee celebration that would let the employees know how much we truly appreciated their hard work and dedication but we also wanted something unique, creative, memorable and of course within budget. Without your services we would have ended up having a traditional banquet hall reception. Instead, your knowledge and insight turned an ordinary room into a fantastic atmosphere where employees and their guests could mingle, eat, enjoy two different musical venues and be treated like VIP’s at a swanky night club. The lighting itself is something we could have never dreamed of accomplishing without your expertise. In addition, the food stations were well planned and really brought together the company theme and logo. I think what really struck a cord with the employees were the “Appreciation Cards” that highlighted the employees themselves and showed that the very thought of their hard work was at the heart of the celebration.

As you know bringing in an International Band and caring for their needs and helping them set up and achieve the look they wanted was a major concern, yet you handled the situation seamlessly and again made Cambridge Homes stand out as professional and knowledgeable. It was amazing to see you transform the room and manage the event until the final hour. Without your help it would have never come together as well as it did. Leaving the event in your capable hands also left us without a worry. All the employees raved about the event and it will certainly remain in their memories.

In addition, thank you for your creative insight into our Pingree Grove Celebration. When the time comes we will definitely call on your company to coordinate that event as well as any event Cambridge hosts.

As you know Cambridge prides itself on the “Cambridge Difference” and you certainly help us achieve that. Thank you again.

Bernie Rizzo is a true entrepreneurial marketer.

Bernie is uniquely positioned to execute based upon his personal experience and his vast network of partners and third party vendors to meet virtually any marketing or event requirement.
