Who We Are

Diane Estner, President/CEO, DANNI Enterprises

“Charlotte Somers is by far the best meeting and event planner I've ever had the pleasure to work with. It's only when you see the massive amounts of creative thought and labor that goes into building & managing a special unique experience -that you truly understand and appreciate the talent required to pull it off. Charlotte Somers has all that talent, and more! I HIGHLY recommend Charlotte Somers for anyone wanting a successful meeting/event."

Frank Wolfe, CEO, HFTP

“HFTP produces major events across the globe and has earned a reputation for quality. Creating high-risk, high-reward, 'never been done before' hospitality conference concepts and social events is always a nail-biting experience.  But even operating with a top-notch full time event staff, talent cannot create extra time or money in these situations.  So there have been a number of times where we needed a company that could be entrusted with our reputation without concern...Somers Communications Meeting & Event Planning  is THAT company."
