Founded in 2004, CLI Groups began with one person handling all facets of the business. Over the years, CLI Groups has recruited a reputable executive team and the most qualified support staff in the industry. Our strategic partners and vendor relationships, both nationally and overseas, provide our clients maximum buying power anywhere in the world. With numerous events of every format and size successfully planned, there is no question CLI Groups can exceed your expectations.
Discover, Plan, Review and Implement. We will discover the client’s needs and goals. Our team of experts will then plan the event covering every detail. To avoid any misunderstanding, we will then review the plan with our client. Upon final approvals, our team will handle the entire implementation process with constant and clear communication throughout this phase with our client.
Our client is our boss, therefore we will always exceed the client’s expectations; there is nothing “standard” or merely “acceptable” in anything we do. We are innovative, creative, passionate, dedicated and solution oriented. Our success can only be measured by the success of a client’s experience and the satisfaction of that client.
Our Secret To Success
Our Entire Team LOVES What We Do. It is not a job, it is a passion. We work endless hours, face immeasurable challenges, and tirelessly handle unbelievable hurdles. Why? Because we take full responsibility for our client’s goals and expectations. Our goal is to always end with a smile on our faces…and more importantly, end with a smile on our clients’ face.
