Testimonials

“The structure of your conference was very effective” 

"Loved this event and appreciate the invitation. I look forward to hopefully participating in the Spring."

"I thought the format was great and very productive. The break-out sessions allowed us to focus on the vendors 

that pertain directly to our line of business."

"Of all the conferences I have ever attended, this was the first one I actually: connected with attendees while there on 

social media and sharing of contact information, proactively sent an email for more information to a solution provider while I 

was still at the conference. That says alot for how it was run, the content, etc..."

“Thanks again for your conference---I am so glad I attended---I got to meet some great people and learn about their 

practices and take home some thought-provoking ideas from your sponsors.”

“I’m enjoying the setup of the conference. I like having one on one time with the sponsors."
