The Critical Path to Successful Events

Book Your Event Experience






Dora the Event Manager

Hi I’m Dora, and when you attend a Vis-à-Vis event, you’re my guest. My passion is also my desire to win your trust and confidence in the service that I bring to every event. I do everything to respond to your needs, making sure everything is going just as it should.

Events have many things in common: budget, keynote speakers and entertainment, all kinds of displays and demonstrations, and of course, food. But successful events have so much more. We offer:

  1. Trust earned from you and your attendees
  2. Confidence that our job is done so you can get your job done
  3. Value in service, value in planning, and value in execution.

What the Clients Say

Where to start with the praise for Dora? Dora has been a reliable, professional part of our team since 2011. It does not matter what the content of our shows are, and they do vary from design and decor for the home, all things related to pets, outdoor adventure travel or home renovations, Dora is consistent in taking control of the stage area and being the perfect host to our guest speakers. As Stage Coordinator, she conducts herself professionally at all times and always steps up to deal with whatever needs to be done. She has troubleshooted AV challenges, dealt with staging mishaps, soothed presenters’ nerves and adapted to last minute schedule changes. We have come to rely on Dora as being our representative in the presentation area. When you are in the event business it is nice to have Dora in your corner!

I first meet Dora when she was a student within the Event Management program at Algonquin College. Every year, I engage students from this program to work with me in executing the three Ottawa shows: The Signatures Show, Originals Ottawa Christmas Craft Sale and Originals – The Spring Craft Sale. Dora stood out from the other students from first show she worked in 2008. She has worked every show with me since. She takes great initiative and has an ability to recognize what needs to be done and does it. When Dora is on duty, I don’t ever have to worry. The exhibitors love her! Her customer service skills are excellent. She is able to handle complaints and problem solve in a friendly and effective manner. She has good social media skills and is a great asset to us in this area. Her organizational skills are also excellent. I highly recommend Dora. Whatever project she takes on, she will do well. Her work ethic is very strong.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dora Dalietos of Vis-à-Vis Events Inc. for the “Sizzle with Sid Gala” in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Her organizational skills and attention to detail is vital for any major event. Dora knows the importance of having contracts in place, advertising and dealing with venue as well as sponsors. As a result, Dora will be the event organizer for the next event “Get Sidified” in support of the Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. Vis-à-Vis Events Inc. is one of the best event planning companies I have worked with. Her talent has been recognized by so many. Her work ethic is inspiring, and it will help to create a memorable event. Yours in Fashion and Fragrance,

I love working with Dora! Aside from the fact that she's a blast to work with. She has an upbeat enthusiasm and gracious smile, she's amazingly organized. I remember the first day she came to work for me. I was taken aback when she left the office at the end of the day, only to find a detailed list of all the things that needed my attention in order of their importance. That blew me away!! I felt like someone really cared about how my practice was run and making sure that it was successful. She is always coming up with new ideas as to how to make more contacts and how to keep things moving forward all the time. When I mentioned to her that I wanted to run an event for those seeking to find new passion in their lives regarding their careers, she was on the phone ASAP and making connections and setting up places to see pronto. She's continually talking up the practice and I can tell that she believes in me and my purpose. That's what I love about her. She takes your desire and makes it into her passion ...a win win situation!!! Her passion for her work and the ability to set it into motion. I went to a fabulous fashion show that she had organized and was very impressed by the turnout and how professional it was from start to finish. She's been a main contributor to keeping things fresh and alive. I can see Dora making a difference in everything she touches and I'm proud to know her and have her in my life!!!!
