We have had the pleasure of working with John Elfring for over 20 years. During that time he and the Communications Direct team have provided full event communication coverage for many of our clients. They have served a broad scale from small intimate ballrooms to large city wide events with multiple venues. Communication Direct's equipment and dedication to customer service is unparalleled. We consider them a major part of our event success.

Take care John.

I would highly recommend this company as a radio provider. They have been working with On the Waterfront, Inc in Rockford, IL since 1999. Their pricing has always been very reasonable. They bring the equipment out, work with our radio team to set up all equipment, including needed repeaters in the best possible locations for our event. They work with our local police department and security companies to have everyone connected as they need to be. If for any reason the equipment has a problem, which is rarely, it is taken care of immediately. If I have questions, they are always there with an answer. I’m always kept up to date on all the latest available equipment.

The staff at Communications Direct is very professional and works with our company to meet all of our communication requirements for all of our events. They work with events all over the United States and I have personally heard very positive feed back from several of those events.

On the Waterfront, Inc is a very satisfied customer and will continue to work with Communications Direct, Inc.

Communications Direct Radio Rental always provides the service I need to effectively support very high end and demanding clients. There was even one time where a client had numerous day-of orders and they came through for me. I’ve used them around the country and their 24-hour support is perfect. All this and great pricing --- It’s the vendor solution I’ve been searching for!!!

Thanks again for the impeccable service that Communications Direct rental continues to provide for our events. We couldn't have done the Shamrock without Comm Direct. As you can tell, the importance and need for instant two way mobile communication has grown in our events, Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle & Bank of America Chicago Marathon, over the past couple of years.

The days of communicating by cell phone for our events are over. The best way to get something done is a with a walkie talkie.

Just when I think, I am really pushing the limits, Comm Direct problem solves and come up with new and innovative ways to meet my needs and get the job done. We are also very appreciative with the flexibility you allow us to have, with ever changing world of events you never turned us down with last minute orders and requests. Frank and Tom continue to be the best in the business.

Thank you again, and get my radios ready for this year’s marathon.
