Welcome to JVG Meeting & Event Management

About Us

JVG’s attention to detail is unparalleled. Not only in the months leading up to your event but all the way through to the onsite nuances that create lasting impressions; Jennifer and her team manage every last detail with integrity and a keen, meticulous eye for detail.  

What We Do

Pharmaceutical meeting planning is a highly specialized field with legal, technical and medical considerations at every decision point. JVG prides itself on staying current with all applicable legislation as it pertains to medical meetings. This allows our clients to focus on their speakers’ bureau and content with unwavering commitment—knowing the meeting itself will be both compliant and spectacular in every way. Over the years we have acquired a wealth of knowledge in pharmaceutical planning and understand how to meet the complicated, specialized requirements pharmaceutical events demand in all logistical areas ranging from travel to meals and audio visual.

Compliments & Kudos

“You may remember me as the Nurse Practitioner at the recent Roche speaker training who arrived at 4:30 AM in Newark after a harrowing set of flights through Atlanta. I just wanted to thank you for all your help in getting me to Newark and home. You really went above and beyond the call and you never made me feel that I was asking for too much when I asked for accommodations.  Your support and cheerful attitude, as well as your willingness to answer 2:00AM telephone calls that reassured me that a limo would pick me up, made all the difference. I hope to never have another trip like that one, but if I do I hope that you are the travel support person who will be helping me.”      

“The entire process, from initial invitation, through the entire trip – flight, transportation, hotel, the meeting etc. – was superbly carried out, and from my perspective, seemed virtually flawless. You all are to be commended for your excellent work”.     

“I have hired Jen many times to help my company support and execute client meetings. Jen is a hard-working, reliable, knowledgeable professional, and I truly enjoy working with her. Jen instills great confidence with my team and my clients, and that is invaluable. She solves problems in real time and works efficiently. I never have to worry about whether key tasks are handled when Jen is on the case. I would work with her again in the future, without question.”   

“Artisan! Jen takes infinite pains and extreme care to be defined by her achievements not her efforts.”   

“Jennifer is the consummate professional. Her understanding of the meeting planning process and customer focus assures the success of our events.”
