Total Event Resources, a Woman’s Business Enterprise certified meeting and events company, was recognized with the 2014 Best Corporate Event NICE award for its work on the PepsiCo National Fleet/Other Goods & Services Summit & Tradeshow. Total Event Resources developed a custom mobile app for PepsiCo, which helped promote quality networking, gathered metrics for the company and promoted green initiatives for the tradeshow.

"Total Event Resources continues to exceed our expectations for this very important PepsiCo event," said Dennis Selle of PepsiCo Global Fleet Procurement. "The mobile app reduced the environmental impact of this event and provided valuable tracking information that will serve as an input with planning future events."

Total Event Resources managed the event theme, registration and supplier fund management, venue contract negotiations for food and beverage, and the general session production of developing the custom mobile app.

"PepsiCo has leveraged our proven industry expertise to support their corporate initiatives throughout the entire planning process," said Donna Collins, senior account executive at Total Event Resources. "Our team is continually challenged to bring innovative ideas and solutions forward, making the work very rewarding and a great deal of fun."
