We are always impressed by SMG’s professional care for the facilities in your charge, and more importantly, our clients.

– Michael Guerriero, Division President of Event Management, Experient

Thanks to all of you so much for a great event on Saturday- you were a pleasure to work with and were on the ball! We received wonderful feedback from guests on Saturday and the Ballroom looked absolutely beautiful! We are very grateful for your role in helping us raise money for our clients and programs!

– Kate Neary, Tulsa CARES / Red Ribbon Gala

The Cox Business Center is a great place to host large or small events. The staff is accommodating and quick to answer requests. The facility is flexible for any event size and I will definitely use them again.

– Aaron Gimmeson, Hilti Inc.

Angela Boswell was great! Responsive, helpful and the folks working with her were equally prepared and able to make quick changes as our guests made some unexpected requests. I am very happy with the facilities, the staff, the food and all aspects of working with Cox Business Center!

– Cindy Webb, Tulsa Ballet

Darian Woods & Nicole McConaha were such a joy to work with. Both were available during event hours and went above and beyond to tend to every request. They aided in making our overall event experience positive and stress-free. I look forward to working with both of them in 2018.

The Cox Business Center offers many creative dining options and has yet to disappoint in providing Tulsa CARES with well-designed and delicious plates for the Red Ribbon Gala.

-Amanda Swope, Tulsa CARES

I just wanted to send you a huge thank you to you and your staff for yesterday. It was a huge success, and the group we hosted from special Olympics could not say enough great things. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you in the future.

– Jennifer Watson, Oklahoma City Thunder

We enjoy working with the CBC for the outstanding service and catering by Chef Devin. We will be back with Carnivale in 2017!

-Lisa Turner, Mental Health Association Oklahoma

I wanted to take a moment and say thank you for helping us pull off an amazing event. The rave reviews just keep coming.  Lots of great comments about how good the food was, especially the salad! Wine service was excellent. The extra attendees seemed to be the only crisis and you promptly covered us on that. We will schedule a follow-up meeting in the near future to set the plan for next year.

– Kathy Brianerd, San Miguel School

I was pleased with the level of service throughout and especially note that everyone encountered was a pleasure to work with. Flexibility was great as we worked through developing and refining our theme. I can’t imagine a better experience!

Shiela Haynes, Red Cross

I have a keen appreciation for the culinary quality and excellent service delivered by the catering staff and the rest of the SMG team that so capably helps customers plan, coordinate, and execute high quality meetings, events, fundraisers, shows, and banquets. Thanks for enhancing the culinary landscape of our community!
