“Hosting Meetings Today LIVE! was a great opportunity for us to showcase Greater Palm Springs and our partners. The quality of planners set the tone for the event. During the one on one appointments, we had a lot of interest in the destination and are working on 7 RFP’s because of the exposure to the properties. Meetings Today staff did an excellent job organizing and recruiting the right type of planner. We hope to develop another opportunity with them in the future.” — Mark Crabb, FCDME, CTA - Chief Sales Officer - Greater Palm Springs CVB
“Thanks for a great meeting. Everything was great, not only did I have fun, but I met some good contacts from hotels to put future business, always a plus. Thanks again for all you do to make it successful.” — Rick Rosen, President, Tristar Incentive Group
“I needed to tell you that the Meetings Today Live 2016 event is, by far, one of the best event planner trade shows I've ever attended. You should be very proud of yourself and the team. Everything was just perfect.” — Carol Marotta, Executive Assistant / Event Planner, Nielsen
“I wanted to tell you again how 'over the top' the Colorado Springs event was...I am so impressed with Colorado Springs as destination, The Broadmoor is deserving of all the accolades and the other hotels and facilities we saw were all impressive. Thanks for all the work you did setting up such a great agenda. Oh, I forgot to mention the food...I have told so many people about the diverse menus...Duck, Elk and Bison! It shows you can offer different options to a group.” — Jean Jett, Director of National Accounts, EMCVenues LLC
