Excellent!

After reading some of these reviews I had to step in, with a vendor's view.

Best Events runs an event like a well oiled machine. Both my husband and I have done work for Best Events. Jeffery's attention to detail is bar none. He hires the best and expects the best from his people.
He throws amazing creative parties and events as small as a 4 year old birthday with a go cart race track to a ginormous Sony party or a Premier that includes turning a pool into a dance floor.

As a vendor, I arrive in advance well informed and on board with any delicate situations like NDAs or celebs that want to be left alone.

Everything runs smooth and on time. Jeffery does not settle for anything less than a worry free experience for his clients.

Is he good, yes. Is he the best, no.

Mr. Best is good at thematic events but so are my friends who plan their 5 year old's Birthday parties. It doesn't take a genius to plan an event but it does take knowing the right people. Jeffrey is good but his arrogance isn't worth the price you pay when you are not an ""A list"" client. His team is often seen as being frightened of him, his attitude is visibly horrible, he has a propensity to comes in over budget, he tends to make ""executive decisions"" without asking the client, he refuses to show you a detailed breakdown of the final costs for auditors and in the end, the trouble is not worth the end result that you can achieve by using another popular event company. Yes, there is no denying he is a good event planner, but can one recommend him based on all the other faults, not really.

Had the BEST Event

I oversee Special Projects Marketing for my company and have hired many event planners throughout my 20 year career. But the experience I received from Best Events was unprecedented.

Jeffrey Best and his team went above and beyond for me and my event. Their knowledge of the event world and their access to resources is second to none. My event was a huge success and my superiors as well as our clients were elated with everything they did (making me look like a hero).

I cannot thank them enough for coming thru for me on this event (and coming in under budget).

I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an event planner (they even told me they do weddings and bar mitzvah's too, ha!)

Anyone who truly know Jeffrey Best...

I was an employee of Best Events LA and am shocked at the fake reviews posted about the company. It was worse then Hell to work for Jeff. During my initial interview, he was more concerned with name dropping then conducting a professional atmosphere. After a few months, working in extremely close proximity with him, I left work every day feeling less human because of the manic & cruel moods he throws at people. He's clearly stated to members of his staff that he uses the cheapest decorations and furniture for his parties. Also, he used the furniture from his Event Warehouse to decorate his own home...trades the old, used furniture out and those show up at events. I highly suggest hiring another company to plan your event, unless you have the strength to deal with a man over 40, yelling at his employees because the bathroom is out of paper, and giving you mediocre service.

Fake reviews below

The fake reviews were not only written on the same day, but the so-called ""Reviewers"" have each only posted one review on the Citysearch website - and guess who it's for?

I've heard many complaints from unhappy former clients of Best Events. Among them: they don't return phone calls, have trouble delivering - and make you feel terribly unimportant if you're not an A-list client.

It's this kind of manipulative behavior like posting fake reviews that typifies all the folks who've complained about his character. He was good for about a year and then he got really full of himself and went downhill from there.

Basically, he's just living off his old reputation and most who've used him in the past have moved on to other party planners who don't practice in such questionable behavior.

I smell fake reviews

I work in the event industry and was scrolling through the categories. Best events is truly not a company that I would have guessed to have had so many brilliant reviews based upon the buzz within my industry. They are good, not the best by any means. If anything they are known for big promises during the planning stages and whatever shows up is what the event actually is.

Just notice that every review was written on the same day. Smells fishy.

Best Attitude!

Attitude galore and never a bore. This man rocks it in my opinion. I went to an event with my husband, a jeweler here last year before thanksgiving and we had a fantastic time. He had remembered details about us and our dog, even though we had only met years before at another event. Working in the industry with such a big price on time and accuracy, I can completely appreciate a stern hand while guiding the ship. It doesn't take a lot to move a crowd, but it does when you are guiding it in a specific direction. The night and ambiance way surpassed our expectations for a birthday party but, you know he made it rock.

Hollywood Baby!

A Heavenly event it was! My wife and I attended the after party for Art of Elysium Charity Gala - Honoring Eva Mendes and Jim Sheridan.
It was magnificent and inspiring night. It benefited ""The Art of Elysium Charity"", which helps children battling serious medical conditions. What a great thing to do for our community and our spirits. It's so empowering to see so many of hollywoods people in and out of the spotlight helping. Jeffrey Best and Company did such a magnificent job at putting such phenomenal night together. He truly is one of the Best in the industry.
Thank you for your Best,
A caring heart

When there are ""somebodies""Best Events is there!

OK Best Events WOW! If it is an event that is either enormous or intimate they do it all! Jeffrey, hey I know you are a great guy and everyone in the industry knows you but how do you do it? I mean Sundance was amazing, huge with everyone there and all the venues.And the Best Friends Charity Event was a really touching and wonderful event. You seem to make magic in everything you touch. You know all the right people and they certainly know you! You are everywhere from fashion shows, parties, charities to large events. This guy can handle it all. It is a real experience to attend something that Best Events has put together. Five stars of course!

A guru with timely events

The company I work for hired Best Events for a gala last year and the results were breathtaking. What a show it was, to put up and to coordinate, a total knock your socks off class act. A guru veteran in the Los Angeles area, but well known all over the US, with his classic star affairs. A man and a company that get the job done.

It's all about the ""Theme""

Living and working the entertainment industry is difficult. Not only do you have to be on your toes but you have to keep a cool head at all times.
Yes, so Jeffrey does loose his cool at times. Just bear and grin it, because the truth is that he wont if you do your job and do it right. He is great about themed parties and have worked with him on many a job. As a vendor and an owner, I know that employees and no matter how old they are, will always work our nerves. I give him credit for all he does and a damn good job he does. Impressive how he pulls it together and makes your imagination come allive. It's the client we must please and your employees should help you get those jobs done. Remenber grow a thick skin and you will learn a lot, especially from the Best.

The Most Fantastic

I was planning a very special party and was lost when it came to not only etiquette but that extra flair that would have my quests talking about for a long time. I had attended an event that Best Events had done and remembered how impressed that I was. I called and spoke to Mr. Jeffrey Best and he was so personable on the phone. I, with complete confidence, put my event in his hands. I found him to be a real pro and interested in what I wanted and took care of all the details and then some! I couldn't have made a better decision than to have Best Events take care of everything! My guests are all still talking about it!

When everyone knows your name...

It means you are it, and it he is and everyone at Best Events. Jeffrey Best is your go to guy in Hollywood for your no nonsense event planning. I've found him to be as professional and expedicious as a client wants it to be. Fantastic and fast witted, he blew my cleints mind with such an amusing themed party for his boys barmitzvah.
Thank you for making my job so enjoyable.

A real go getter

Working with Jeffrey is not one of the easiest jobs in the world but I learned a lot. I'm very much convinced that working with him for a year of my life made my carear what it is today. I often wondered what is was that made him so driven and propelled him as a business owner. One day I knew in myself the time had come for me to push my sail out and make my move.
This is my second year in wedding coordinating and I'm enjoying the 'night caps' at the end of the day!

The Event

""I look forward to the day when I won't care about it all,"" Mr. Best said with a smile. ""But right now, I care. I really care."" From Life, ""Is One Big Party"", By MONICA CORCORAN, L.A. Times, March 5, 2006. And care he did 'till all the dots were crossed and the last drink was had. I had such a good time at this event a few years ago. This is where I first saw him in action with his crew. I'm more than sure that people that work in this industry with less etiquette to getting the job done, would have a problem with his decorum, but the reality is that his clients see results and thats what counts. So I say - you go Mr. Best! I want you to make my event a success.

Very impressive

I attended a fashion show in Bel Air, Ca that was for H & M clothing. It was really a remarkable show. Best Events really has a style and knowledge of what they undertake. Best Events was terrific! Glad they take care of details, show was great!

What an Event!

My senses were overwhelmed like a kid that was set loose with the most fantastic, magical fun! Mr. Best of Best Events was the magician that (of course with his skill and magic, top of them all services) created the major introduction events of Playstation 3! Wow... how could anyone but him undertake this scale of event and make it lavish, fun, informational and all come together? It's his experience and taste. I even saw Puff Daddy there not to mention so many others..We have a large corporate event in the planning and there is no doubt in who's more than capable hands we will be putting this size event to. He exceeds fantastic! 5 stars for what I have experienced of his work! Thanks Jeffrey Best!

Fantastic, professional, the top in the field

As a professional entertainer, I attend and give many intimate to grand scale events. I have hired and have obtained the services of Jeffrey Best of Best Productions. He is the only one that is trusted and can do with style and taste an event that will be done right. I have seen his skill at Sundance and even done wonderful charities like Oakwood School to the amazing Art of Elysium that helps kids with medical problems. I am confident in him and Best Events because he demands the best. No one should have less.. He is the everyone calls..

A MASTER in events! From parties, charities or grand scale

While in Detroit, I was astounded at the arena that was errected for the massive event of GM. My employees had told me of this big undertaking that had the whole city talking and watching its from construction to exucution. What a fanfare. And the event was a combination of lavish, shiny exciting fun. There were celebrities of alll kinds and vehicles that raced the senses. I inquired who was the magician that could put together such an event that had all the elements.With big names, style and all with class that gave the GM event such a pow. I was directed to Mr. Jeffrey Best. He was the one who had put together the best of the best in their fields, months earliier to construct, detail and bring in top computer specialists ensure event was flawless. Then as it was all in place everything was set in motion. This was a show of shows and Mr. Best, of Best Events made each detail the finest. Not to mention the lovely ladies and those fantastic cars. This was an event Detroit will not forget and I think only Jeffrey Best could have created this event with such flair...I am impressed Jeffrey Best!

Wonderfully Elegant

The GM Ten Fashion Show was a truly an event that dazzled the senses. An impressive night full of fashion,
high caliber guests and atmosphere. Mr. Jeffrey Best is a true artist with the scale of events and clients that trust repeatedly him for their events. We had a night that matched none other, elegant and fun! Bruce Willis, Mary J Blige,and so many others attended. I was so taken by the ability of Mr. Best with his business,Best Events , that we will be contacting him for our exclusive parties and the large events more than confident and grateful.
