I had the pleasure of working with Linda Spelling, president of Buzz Inc., when the meetings and conventions department of Evolution Medical Communications required additional support.
The company was awarded a large piece of business and in order to make a smooth transition, Buzz took on a number of critical tasks. Building meeting websites via CVENT, delivering logistical arrangements and budget monitoring were among the key responsibilities. Linda's contributions during this period played a large role in the successful onboarding of our new client.
I would highly recommend Linda and Buzz, Inc. if you are in the market for corporate meeting planning professionals who are smart, love what they do and committed to producing quality results.

When we require additional support to complement our client's programs, we know we can count on Buzz. Linda Spelling and I have had an excellent working partnership for over 15 years, and I know not only does a great job, she does so with passion, enthusiasm and dedication.
Most recently, we called on the team at Buzz to help us fill some key positions and to manage the food and beverage for a week-long convention with over 7,000 attendees. They jumped right in with a detailed, organized approach and delivered a quality experience, which was well-received and under budget.
Linda Spelling is one of those people who should be cloned in mass quantity for the betterment of society and business. She is smart, highly capable, extremely personable and a pleasure to work with.
I met Linda first as a friend, some 25 years ago. As we are both in the meeting planning business — I have been with Meetings & Conventions as an editor for 25 years — I invited her to participate as a hosted buyer for one of our events, specifically targeting the needs of Independent Meeting Professionals with supplier meetings, education and network opportunities. Linda’s professionalism, industry knowledge and enthusiasm impressed everyone she met during the course the two-day event. Linda is precisely the kind of participant we look for: experienced, intelligent, eager to network and learn, and a joy to spend time with. She understands the value of relationship-building, and maximized the opportunity to make lasting connections.
I expected that Linda would be a good writer, too, and I was not disappointed. Linda has contributed several bylined columns to Meetings & Conventions, all of which were informative and well received by our audience of high-level meeting professionals.
