TESTIMONIALS

I enjoyed meeting with the suppliers, as well as planners.  It is always so enlightening at these experiences to be able to discuss the highs and lows of the hospitality industry.

Michelle Rydzewski, Kadant Solutions

 

Spot on speakers, gorgeously planned surprises, and serious business happened at the Eau Palm Beach at the Smart Meetings event! We are grateful for the excellent contacts and wonderful memories we made! Thank you!

Ashley Baptiste, Conferences Connect

 

I thought having hosted an event at my property that I had already saturated the audience that would attend the event, but I was mistaken! I met mostly NEW planners who had heard about the event hosted at my location but now I was able to full immerse myself in the experience with them. I walked away with two RFP’s and 4 hot leads. We will certainly budget to attend another show in the future.

-Tiffany DiPasquale, Director of Sales & Marketing, Hotel Drover

 

Great Event! Kudos to the whole team! Both nights’ events were fabulous. Loved the unique way to use the spa, and will be reaching out to one of our local spas to create something similar and food, music and the whole experience at the market was great.
