Here’s a sampling of what attendees say about the conference:

-       The excitement and energy displayed by members, exhibitors and the board was very infectious. The education and networking opportunities were outstanding and were the highlights of the conference. 

-       It's a great place to meet your vendors, make new connections and get renewed energy from the seminars and peers. We often get so buried in our daily activities that we don't see what new and exciting ways are available to help us make our business successful. The seminars motivate us forward to try new ways and ideas.
