TESTIMONIALS

Where do you get a great program that has the right mix of networking with your peers as well as potential partners, experiencing an incredible destination and being enlightened, educated and entertained by top presenters? Smart Meetings!

-Nanci Parks Gage, MBA, Proton Therapy Partners

 

I learned about a few properties I was not aware of as well as updates to some locations I had written off due to poor infrastructure in the past.  I was pleasantly surprised and plan to pitch them for future programs.  Also, I found some great contacts for gifting!

-Stacey Zeller, SZ Productions

 

This was a fantastic event that facilitated one of the first in-person, face to face events connecting planners and suppliers in an experience that was thoughtful, educational and extremely productive.  Our resort has already received our first RFP for 700 room nights in less than one week – AMAZING!

-John P. Hansen, Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa

 

Smart Meetings offered the opportunity to meet with Meeting Planners from around the nation that are looking to book business in Texas. Not only did it offer an incredible opportunity to meet and talk shop, it also allowed space for real friendships to form that are so important in the work we do. We will be back at future Smart Meetings events after a great first show.

-Josie Lewis, Visit the Woodlands
