Client Testimonials



I love working with every single person at The Amora Event Group. Their design and proposal process is one of the most transparent and easy-to-understand operations our industry has to offer. Their combined professionalism, industry experience, and client satisfaction is second to none. It is for that reason and several others, that I will continually recommend them and look forward to having them as part of any couple’s vendor team.


Jessica McTaggart – Owner – Pink Champagne Events



I had the pleasure of coordinating an event with the help of Jake Ruybal and team from Amora Event Group. They provided rental furniture and accessories for a 90th birthday party of which I was the event planner. Although I had a couple of company’s to choose from, they had some of the nicest, elegant selections to choose from and that I could easily view on their site. The majority of the party was outdoors at a residence in Cherry Hills in June and I faced some last minute bad rainy weather. In a time where customer service seems dead, I was SO appreciative of this company’s “can-do”, pleasant attitude. Whatever 11th hour crisis came, I could call Jake and he was on it; from re-arranging furniture to adding extras. If you value quality, customer service, and reliability to see your event through; trust Amora Event Group!

Each year our company holds a conference during the month of January. We take approximately 60 employees to a different city each year. As the event planner, my

biggest priority and concern for our conference has been ensuring cutting edge technology and A/V support. We have a number of speakers and our agenda is fast paced, leaving very little room for mishaps and mistakes.

This year we hired the Amora Group to help us with our audio visual needs while in Denver.  We could not have had a better experience. It was seamless and they made it look effortless from behind the scenes. We needed everything from pipe and drape to mixers to random requests for video on-site. It was no small undertaking. I rarely plan a conference or event where all goes well with such a large amount of presentations and sound needs.  We did not experience one issue over the course of three days. All expectations were met and they went above and beyond every day. On the last day of our conference our CEO stood up in front our group and gave thanks and appreciation to Jake and his team for a job well done. Enough was said. My goal next year is to have their team travel to our next conference! Thank you again Amora Group!
