What Do Attendees Say:
It is great to see our ‘business family’ each year. I love the exchange of ideas and the discussions with peers more than anything. In most cases, we are not in any direct competition with one another so it is a chance to see how we can improve on what we have built.
I was impressed with this conference. Relevant information, great group of people and I brought back a lot of good ideas to implement in our company.
We were able to take something useful from every speaker we heard.
I love the relationships we build with suppliers and members that help us to grow our businesses, gain confidence, and stay up to date on issues we might otherwise ignore, due to the busyness of running our businesses.
I love seeing all the people that we hadn’t seen for a year while meeting new people. The networking is always the best.
What Do They Know That You Don't?
