NAPE EXPO – Houston

“NAPE EXPO has entrusted Burnett Convention Specialists for the past 7 years with the staffing of our conventions that are held twice a year at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Burnett provides quality temporary staff that has been pre-screened on skill sets and customer service personality to fill our needs ranging from 50 to 150 positions. It has been a pleasure to work with the enthusiastic, energetic and excellent customer service staff provided.”

“We have found the Burnett convention team to be attentive and perceptive in understanding our objectives and always finding a way to meet our needs. Once we send our confirmed schedule to Burnett, we don’t have to worry about the follow-through. This allows us to focus on other projects rather than be tied up with the everyday details regarding the placement of staff.”

“It has been seamless to have the same agency and the same on-site supervisor year after year. Utilizing Burnett, we do not have to spend time re-educating another agency for our needs. We include Burnett’s convention team in our pre- and post-conference planning meetings to help us adapt to changes and appreciate the feedback on items that need to be tweaked to allow us to operate more efficiently.”

“We recommend Burnett Convention Specialists to any company requiring a well-managed and pro-active team to fulfill their staffing needs.”

Senior Meetings Manager

Pri-Med – Houston

“I wanted to thank your entire staff for another very successful Pri-Med show this year. Once again, your temp staff impressed our team with their professionalism, enthusiasm, and dedication. Our show is long hours and your folks were there ready to keep working each day. Your supervisor was fantastic! She had a great relationship with the staff, handled last minute requests with ease and was always attentive to the show needs.”

“Overall, our experience for the past 5 years with Burnett Convention Specialists has been incredible. You are one of the most experienced and professional staffing agencies we work with. See you next year!”

“I wanted to thank your amazing staff for making our convention a success. Everyone was so professional and provided outstanding service to each of our members. I truly appreciated your being onsite and for tracking the timesheet … that was such a huge help to me. I enjoyed working with you and hope to work with you again in the future.”

HR Development Manager

“The Choice Specialists staff is very bright and detailed orientated. Their efficiency and professionalism they show in working with me are outstanding. In fact, they are the only agency we use! If that doesn’t say something, I don’t know what will.”

Volunteer Services Manager

North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee – Dallas

“We contacted Choice Specialists to provide us with event staff support. They provided eager, professional staff that was willing to take on any task assigned. Their staff was flexible and even weathered the incredible weather challenges to attend their assigned shifts. Choice Specialists’ reaction to our requests was prompt and professional. We’re grateful for their support.”

Senior Planner

Executive Events, Inc. – San Antonio

“I wanted to send my sincere thanks and gratitude for Burnett Specialists last week. All your staff were personable, prompt and professional. Our client was thrilled with the results. I can’t thank your staff enough for their frequent contact, dropping by or calling to check in with me during the show and bringing the warm gifts.

“It was a pleasure working with you and I will not hesitate to contact you again when I’m in Texas as well as refer you to the other planners in our company.”


The Wedding Fair – San Antonio

“For many years, I tried to fill all my staffing needs myself for the shows I organize. I spent a lot of time trying to locate enough temporary help to fill all the positions I had open. I finally decided that I would give Burnett specialists a call and see what you could do. I do not know why I waited so long. I am looking forward to having your help in all my future shows.”
