Super excited to have spent time connecting with our colleagues in the events industry this past week at the Northwest Events Show. Met a lot of great people and great contacts, and saw a lot of friends I've not seen in a long time.

You put together something I haven’t seen in the PNW in Years. The amount of Corporate & Association planners you brought to the event was the best. I saw so many good clients and met so many new ones. Our whole team was impressed and so excited about the outcome of the show.
