Director of Programs and Events
Great Place to Work®

“Working with LOMA Marketing Agency on our signature event 
at Great Place to Work has been an excellent partnership. Loren’s eye for detail and understanding of the strategic role of our event in highlighting our brand and mission was key in helping us to create a highly successful program. From day one, Loren and her team provided thoughtful recommendations to enhance our attendees’ experience and build relationships with our clients. 
The partnership was seamless, from the planning and preparation phases to the onsite delivery, including registration management, sponsor activations, attending to VIP guests and liaising with the hotel. Our trust in LOMA allowed our core Events Team to focus on elevating our content for the program and leverage strategic relationships onsite.

LOMA embodies the values and behaviors that Great Place to Work strives to carry forward on the daily:

  1. Care – By continually checking in and supporting the Events Team throughout the planning process, as well as providing world-class customer care to our attendees before and during the event.
  2. Be Curious – By asking pointed questions to help drive us towards efficiency and to add value.

  3. Excel – By helping us to think outside the box of what we’ve typically done for our events.
  4. Champion One Team, One Mission – By always acting as an extension of the GPTW team, and

  5. Integrity – By standing behind every decision and outcome, regardless of the result.

We truly valued our partnership with Loren and her team in helping to make our conference one of the highest rated events of my tenure at Great Place to Work.”
