Is Event Marketing for you?


Good Morning and Hello!!

Welcome from Steve Ree Solutions. As a marketing consultant/strategist, I have the opportunity to associate with many interesting and successful companies throughout the Midwest.

Recently I have been blessed with the opportunity to become (as a consultant) the VP of Corp. Marketing for both the Bug-Bee Hive just south of Paynesville, Mn. and McQuoid’s Inn and Event Center on Lake Mille Lacs. Both are fabulous resorts and both have event centers suitable for groups with different needs.

The Bug-Bee Hive offers 
a fantastic lake setting with quaint cottages as well as huge condos.

A Beautiful Lodge!

McQuoid’s includes great fishing, golf, snowmobiling and ice fishing opportunities.

Most importantly for your business, their years of experience can insure you and guests are treated with all the care and attention to detail you desire. Both provide lodging for groups small and in the hundreds.

Looking for a venue for a retreat? Looking for a place to hold your seminar. How about your next company wide training session?

Contact me for a jumpstart on your next event. My position with both operations will insure that you get the best return on your event investment.

You also get the benefit from my many years of being the lead coordinator for dozens of large banquets in the Conservation Group arena.
