What Our Planner Attendees Have to Say

In the past, we had tried digital ads and print marketing, but the ROI we received from your events was 400% more effective— It has been brick building results for us as a company.
Dayna Malow, CEO, Live Art International
I liked the roundtable format to move around the room and meet/network while doing so.
- Kris Mayo, Conference and Events Manager, Association for Corporate Growth
I enjoyed the format of the event. I felt like everyone could contribute to the conversation equally and I was able to take something away from every session whether it was from the sponsor or from my peers.
- Danielle Broadwater, Associate Director, Special Events, The University of Chicago
I love the Master Class and keep coming back because being able to crowdsource event ideas from other planners is truly invaluable. Not only do I find great value in the peer-to-peer discussions, but also being able to meet & greet with vendors and venues is SUCH an added bonus.
- Kaitie Giamari, Senior Events Manager, FGS Events Inc
I loved Networking with fellow meeting planners and the exposure to unique vendors and venues I can work with for my events!
- Anita Martinez, Wells Fargo Capital Finance
