"Baxter is a top notch event professional. He is both a big picture visionary and a detail oriented producer. He is a creative problem solver and reliably delivers on time results. He is easy to work with and is unfazed by pressure."

"Tickets, Tours and Events executes their events with skill, passion and creativity. As TTE has supported the BC Cancer Foundation's Workout to Conquer Cancer over the past three years it's been a pleasure to collaborate with Baxter and his team as they deliver impressive results and add-value with creative solutions and ideas to innovate event production.

"After an initial meeting to discuss our organization humanitarian mission and our vision for the event, Tickets, Tours and Events took that vision and made it happen. They took care of every detail needed to put on a professional, elegant event and the added bonus was that they were extremely fun and easy to work with."
