Testimonials
Testimonials
  • “Great to get away and hear from experts in areas outside your immediate industry. No matter how different we view our individual industries or situations, their are far more commonalities than you might think."
    Hillery Meier, Director of Product & Brand Management, Hunter Douglas

    “Overall, my experience was very good considering that this was my first forum and I wasn't sure what to expect. I really enjoyed the conversations (with suppliers and delegates) and expect that I may engage some of the suppliers for new business opportunities moving forward.”
    Steve Gereb, Senior Director of Marketing, Avnet

    “Good use of time. Exceeded expectations.”
    Kevin Bean, Director of Marketing, Spectrum Brands

    “It was a fantastic opportunity to get out of the office and be with like-minded people and to learn more about marketing automation and innovations. I loved that all the speaker sessions and meetings started on time; the entire event was well choreographed. The events team did an amazing job of keeping everything moving and to ensure everyone's needs were met.”
    Susan Weber, Chief Marketing Officer, Walker & Dunlop

    “Relaxed environment, time well planned, stimulating. I have 40 years experience as business owner and CMO. Rarely attend such events. Opportunity to interact with owner level suppliers and consultants was two way effective. Unfortunately, it is impossible for consultants to contact me due to heavy volume of calls and email. This was a method to accomplish that.”
    Ron Pecora, Chief Marketing Officer, Waste Pro USA

    “Very eye-opening to the industry at large. Beautiful setting and people were willing to share and learn.”
    Eden Goldberg, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, InMotion Entertainment

    “Informative, Organized and interesting business connections made which otherwise might not have happened.”
    Ryann Hannigan, Senior National Channel Marketing Manager, Jawbone

    “One of the best conferences I have ever attended. I was impressed with the quality of the presentations and the caliber of the attendees.”
    Natalie Thorsen, Associate Director of Client Services, Jackson White Law
