"Dear Brian, We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to you for providing the signage for Wednesday night’s production. It shows what collaboration, teamwork, professionalism and confidence can do! The sold-out event drew more than 2,700 people to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre to hear Secretary Clinton’s thoughts on women in leadership. In the days leading up to our event as well as on event day, you were very accommodating to our last minute requests; this was noticed and appreciated. Both you and Jeff were efficient, responsive and professional. We were really pleased with how the signs turned out ... and so were our Sponsors. Thank you. What an amazing effort and an amazing result! We continue to receive tremendous feedback from all who attended. Thank you! We look forward to working with you again in the very near future." - Tasreen R., Vancouver Board of Trade

"Thank you for taking the time to setup our new display booth at Buildex this year.  We received a lot of positive feedback on the new booth design from delegates who knew us and many delegates who did not know RCABC – but when they approached the booth they said: we know that you are in the roofing business...As a result of the graphics, color and design -  it was easy to quickly differentiate ourselves amongst the other displays." - Judy S., RCABC

"My colleagues and I were very, very pleased with the hard work, creativity and excellent communication delivered by James. From my initial briefing where he listened to all my requests, to post show follow up, he was stellar. He “got” what we wanted from the onset and delivered on all his promises and more. It was a delight to work with James and Sepro Mineral Systems plan on using him on our future show graphics needs." - Cheryl P., Sepro Mineral Systems

"This is just a quick email to let you all know that the exhibition room was very well received!  It was officially opened by the Prime Minister, and all the guests were able to walk through.  (I know there was some concern that the room was too narrow, but everyone walked through quite comfortable – some guests even stopped to chat and there was more than enough space to go around)." - Sarah R., The High Commission of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago 

"It really is a pleasure doing business with you all. Everytime, all materials come in a timely manner and it's refreshing." - Brandon C., Cadex Electronics

"I just wanted to share with you, how impressed we are with your prompt and excellent service.  You always get us quotes promptly.  You respond quickly to any questions we have.  You provide us with templates that are easy to use.  I was very pleased that you were able to find us the “Acrobat Banner” an equivalent display to the MB360.  I had told you that we were very disappointed with service from another company, that provided MB360 displays – it took several days, sometimes weeks to get quotes or responses to questions.  They often had delays with delivery which caused us to miss having a product for an event.  They often mixed up invoices and delivered product to the wrong contact which caused a lot of confusion on our end. I find it great that your office is located in the Ottawa area, and when deadlines are tight, you can personally deliver products to us. That is so awesome and we really appreciate it. It is a real pleasure working with you." - Marilyn S., City of Ottawa

Thank you again!" - Cecilia L., Health Canada Pesticide Compliance Program

"When we all started with our ideas and brainstorming back in March, I would have never guessed that all those sketches and simple ideas would have created such an amazing booth. It was an incredible experience for me being a part of something from the beginning right until the end and it could not have been such a huge success without each one of you. Whether it was the creation, the logistics, the day of problem solving, you were all so helpful, accommodating and imperative to the impact we created at OUF this year.

It was an absolute pleasure working with you on this project." - Jane A., CGA Ontario

"Declan worked with me to refine our budget, labour costs etc. and everything was well handled even though we couldn't be onsite ourselves. There is a strong element of "trust" with your company that you are part of our team and will get things done promptly and efficiently .I have always appreciated the level of service and efficient help you have provided but it's nice to know it goes throughout your company. One of my staff was approached onsite by another supplier who sent her information which she passed to James and me. James' comment was "tell them no thanks we're happy with Portables'!! I think that just about sums it up, eh?" - Marion F., Canadian Medical Association/Practice Solutions

"The new lighting really illuminates the space and particularly lights up the glossy centre panel. We're getting a lot of compliments and we by far have the best booth at the show.

"Hi Jimmy, process (for me) was half way home with the selection of both "Reflections" and the "Original 8" systems. A combination I hadn't even conceived of - prior to my visit. I have worked with a lot of graphics design people in my 20+ years in investor relations for numerous public companies and I would like to say that Chris was able to translate my concepts and vision wonderfully in a few short emails and phone calls. The end product is excellent and the process has seemed almost effortless (which I know is the real trademark of a pros). My experience with The Portables proves the adage 'When you want it done right, go to the professionals'." - Western Uranium Corp.

We appreciate the excellent customer service we received from you and the support from Mark Pan around the technical aspects of preparing the image file.

"Media Awareness Network wishes to express its appreciation for your generous offer to lend our organization a trade show display booth from The Portables. As a small, not-for-profit organization the cost of this booth is currently out of our reach, but as we had previously purchased panels produced by The Portables, not having a booth to mount them on has been problematic. Because of your generous offer we are able to use the booth at a Nov 2, 1009 event in Ottawa to launch Canada's fourth annual Media Literacy Week. We are pleased to display a sign noting The Portables contribution at this event." - Media Awareness Network 

"Dear Jeff: I want to express my sincere thanks for all of the time and effort you have invested to ensure that our order for new signage was filled to our specifications and delivered in time for our conference. I understand that you even made a special delivery so that the signage arrived on the Friday before the conference. This effort by you and your colleagues is very much appreciated. A number of years ago, when we returned to the portables in order to purchase our table top and Original 8+ display systems, we did so because we believed that you offered top quality products. You’ve now convinced me that not only are the products excellent, so is the service. The signage, by the way, is just gorgeous. The “gold” is right on, as is the blue colour match." - Statistics Canada

"Hi team – just to let you know that we blew everyone away with our display. Blackwood definitely had a major presence at the show and we could not have done it without you.
