"The hotel layout provided excellent space for having short one on one meetings with customers. We were able to sit down at a table in an area that wasn't far away from the ballroom where the seminars were being held."
"All of the speakers and topics were great! It was very enlightening to hear the opinions and forecasts from some pretty smart folks outside of my company and normal contacts."
"The Union Station reception was amazing."
"The shuttles were great coming out of the reception on Sunday night. I had a group of 28 that needed to get to the power and light district, and they got a shuttle for us immediately."
"Good speaker selection, like the panel discussions, Sunday reception was nice. Great to have more room at this venue vs. previous years."
