Camille Paluscio Manager - Travel, Meetings & Events Volkswagen of America

Jerry Deitchle Chairman of the Board BJ's Restaurants, Inc.

"Bixel & Company has excellent taste and it shows in everything that they do. I recommend them for their professionalism, creativity and quality."

Wolfgang Puck

"I have worked with Bixel & Company for many years, and see them as a critical extension of The Nielsen Company Team. While we have worked with Bixel on a great deal of events, the most important is our annual client conference where Dabney Bixel and her team have helped us make important strides with our clients. We host almost 1000 clients and assorted other attendees, and the events that we entrust to Bixel have to create camaraderie, fun, positive Nielsen imagery and help us meet our objectives for the most important meeting of the year. I am always amazed how Bixel & Company innovates and captures all of our goals, irrespective of location or conditions. We value our relationship with Dabney and her company."

John Lewis President Nielsen, Americas

"Bixel & Company is on a level of their own. Their calm flexibility makes them easy to work with, and they are still on top of everything creatively and logistically."

Kelli Sutton Nike

"The team at Bixel & Company are not only diligent and detail-oriented, but also warm and fun people with whom to partner. With a sense of unique LA experiences, they demonstrated patience and flexibility as well as creativity in designing a custom event that exceeded our groups' needs. As we are all from LA, it was a hard group to impress, but I was touted as putting together one of our best events yet. The success of the event was entirely due to the support of the Bixel team."

Dominique C. Gagnon Corporate Innovation Nestle USA Beverage Division

"Thanks so much to the Bixel team for making our event a successful and memorable experience. You were so creative throughout the entire planning process – both event-wise and budget-wise. Every idea you came up with was better than the last, and it all resulted in a fabulously cohesive and unique event that fit into the parameters of our budget. We received compliments from almost every attendee, both internal and external. This was a tough crowd to impress, and you impressed the audience and helped us achieve a positive experience for some of our most important customers."

Lynda Weeg Symantec Corporation

"A really big thank you to your team! It was a pleasure to work with every one of them. They went above and beyond and were responsible for making the event a success."
