What Our Clients Are Saying

From the first day that I met with you last October when I was on a site inspection and fact finding to locate a DMC who had the same understanding as myself and what I was wanting to achieve for my independent group… your knowledge and enthusiasm and both our backgrounds in incentive travel, resulted in an outstanding program for my group.


John demonstrated his exceptional knowledge of site inspections, event production and transportation logistics. To overseeing shuttle transport for our meeting planners, a very discerning group, to menu selection at Black + Blue in Vancouver, working with John was seamless and his overall positive and accommodating demeanor, a breath of fresh air.

San Francisco Travel Association

From the beginning John paid attention to every detail, proposing unique activities and venues according to the group's profile. He showed to be an expert on the destination being very helpful and cooperative during the organization and the operation of the event. This group was composed by VIP executives from VW Mexico and all of them were satisfied with the program.


I am the owner of a conference/event management company in Toronto and have been in the meeting industry for over 25 years. I have the pleasure of working on many large programs across Canada yearly. In 2017, I held a large client conference in Whistler, B.C. It was during a very busy period of time and the city was sold out. Having some knowledge, but admittedly needing guidance from a local, I sourced a DMC company that would partner with me to deliver the “exceptional, once in a life time experience” for my delegates. In researching the services in Whistler, I quickly realized that John Philip and his company XPYRYNZ Events Inc. was the perfect fit for our group of 400+. John’s partnership attitude and “no” is never the answer as well that creativity is where the wow comes from and John’s approach to business was exactly how I wanted to work. John was always available, pleasant to work with and always had a solution. When onsite the delivery of the event was flawless. Should I have the pleasure of working again in Whistler on another program, I can guarantee that I would only use XPYRYNZ Events.


After one call with John, explaining our client and their vision, he came back with a look book that was perfect! He worked closely with me to stay within our client’s budget. We could not have been more thrilled. He brought their theme to life and everything looked perfect!! Our client was thrilled and the attendees loved how the venue looked. He earned our trust and I 100% recommend John to manage any event you have! I have no doubt there is nothing he can’t do!


I would like to thank you and the team at XPRYNZ Events for providing exceptional service for both Coalesce and Genentech during the American Academy of Neurology's Annual Conference. Your personal commitment to making our events run smoothly and efficiently exceeded our expectations. Amongst the many changes made to meet our end product, your team remained patient and professional and for that we are truly greatlful. From our various meal functions (breakfast, lunches, dinners & reception) to the oversight on our booth build, you helped to carry out Coalesce's vision which didn't go unnoticed by the client. Your efforts allowed Genentech to differentiate from their competition and raise the Marketing teams standards for future MS Conferences. You are a trusted resource for anyone visiting and planning a wide range of events in beautiful Vancouver. Thank you for all of your hard work and I hope to work together again in the future!


I have had the opportunity of collaborating with John on several projects that involve the organization of events catering to executives of Ricoh Latin America while attending our Distributors Incentive Trip to Vancouver. I was very positively impressed by the level of professionalism, teamwork and attention to detail in providing top-notch service to our colleagues. These elements are essential for the execution of my events and conferences and this provider has met and exceeded my expectations


On behalf of the Transoft Solutions team, we would like to thank you for making our 25th Anniversary Corporate Retreat unforgettable. All the hard work of scheduling, arranging and planning from your team made our event truly memorable and the Transoft staff will continue to talk about this event for many years. The location, meetings, tours and food were all fabulous! Keeping 64 people from all over the world on track and on time is a challenge, it all went wonderfully well and everyone had worthy comments to say during and after the event. Thank you very much for all your efforts over the last couple months to make this event a success and hopefully xpyrnz events can be a part of our future events.

It was great working with you. The transportation was timely and high quality. We received lots of compliments from our guests. The décor for Tuesday evening was beautiful and really made the room feel luxurious for our small gathering.
