"All I can say is that I am perfectly amazed with how fantastic our day was. When we woke up it was raining cats and dogs but I knew that we would be fine because of plans A, B and C that we had worked out with Alli and our caterers prior to the wedding. We were able to drop off our décor at the rehearsal the night before the wedding and Alli and her team took my instructions and transformed the venue to the way that I pictured it in my head. I am so happy with the way the whole day turned out and I highly recommend working with Alli and the ECHO for any future event."

"We held our national legislative meeting in Burlington this past July. Our attendees came from across the US, even as far away as Hawaii. We were fortunate to have our Vermont evening reception at the Echo where our participants enjoyed the ambience and scenery of the waterfront.
We chose to work with Sugar Snap as our caterer and they and the food were fantastic! Ethan Allen Coach Works provided the transportation for those not choosing to walk to the reception and to the area restaurants after the event.
This was a great opportunity for us to showcase the beauty of Vermont to our attendees with seamless coordination from our great local businesses."

"We hosted our son's wedding rehearsal dinner for ninety people at the Echo Center. It was a splendid party! First, the location was perfect as most people were staying at the Hilton and didn't have cars so they were able to walk to the party. It was a warm, sunny evening and, while many people appreciated the air-conditioned interior, others enjoyed the patio with its spectacular view of the Burlington harbor and then the breath-taking sunset over the Adirondacks. What makes your space so interesting, of course, are all the exhibits that afforded our young guests in particular an outlet for their energy.
I can't say enough about Rachel Connor's attention to our needs for the evening.
Thank you to all the Echo staff that helped make this special occasion a wonderful success."

"Thanks so much to the entire team at ECHO. Everyone was incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. When we started planning our wedding we were worried about how it would all come together but everyone we worked with made it as easy as possible and again, the ECHO team is just some of the most friendly and helpful people I've ever worked with. The space was amazing for the wedding too, we received compliment after compliment throughout the night and the week following the wedding. Overall, amazing work in an amazing space, thanks so much for helping us with our wedding!"

"It was absolutely, positively a fabulous evening, from start to finish! Thank you so very much for all your support, attention to detail, time, effort and calming presence that made Lizzy Allen's and Christian Craigs's wedding on June 26th so incredibly wonderful and special. Everyone had such a great time and so many people told us what a great venue ECHO is, they loved it. You truly are a well-oiled machine there and our deepest appreciation and gratitude to you and the other staff."
