"Great Show! You do a great job and I appreciate you allowing me to be part of the of the event so last minute. You can count on Carnival to support you and our travel partners in a forum with such a great format. We need to keep the "FUN" in travel because we work in the greatest industry and the that's what you did with this show... "Kept it Fun".
Drew Santiago, Carnival Cruise Lines
"I have been consistently impressed with the organization of the Colorado ASTA trade events. Congratulations on a top notch job!"
Kathryn Damiano, Down Under Answers
"With some of the show locations that are not normally part of the trade-show circuit, the number of attendees is phenomenal along with the fact that their office location is difficult to call on. It's nice to have them come to the shows and visit with us."
Dan Dorn, Globus, Cosmos & Monograms
"Participation in Travel-Trade-Show events in the southeast have allowed me to network with industry peers and meet agency owners that are great targets for membership in our consortium! Large trade show events don't allow you the one-on-one time you have in a smaller setting. The agents really appreciate the fact that we take the time to visit them in their hometown, since so much business is conducted over the web and virtually today."
Rhonda L. Smith, Jurni Network
"This was a great opportunity for us to meet with quality travel professionals."
Debra Ruzbasan, Quebec Tourism
"Since there are no trade shows being offered in my large region, this is a great venue to meet agency owners and front line counselors that I would not get a chance to visit! Really good venues!"
Cheryl Gatto, Oceania Cruises
"Thanks for putting together a great set of shows in a number of good locations which enabled us to get good exposure for Intrav and Clipper Cruise lines"
Nicky Esson, Intrav and Clipper Cruise lines
"…thank you for doing such a great job on putting together the trade show. The venue was great and I was able to get several good leads. Please thank everyone involved for making the show a success.
…people were really willing to take more time to talk 1-on-1, which I feel is the most important. I would rather have fewer people and have the chance to talk to them than to have a ton of people that just grab your stuff and walk away."
Eric Andersen, Travelex Insurance Services
"Your shows allows us to touch base with home based arrangers and with smaller agencies in the community."
Jennifer Ferrante, The Hertz Corporation
"Shows were well attended by travel arrangers who are interested in meeting the vendors in a more intimate setting. Great agents, incredible venues, fun vendors!"
Kathie Weitzman, Uniworld River Cruises
"I feel the smaller shows are more valuable, as the agents are actually interested in talking to you, not just in the giveaways. These shows really do add value to our business. It's a great way to get in front of agents and you're able to spend one-on-one time for those that are interested."
Yale Norris, Aussie Adventures
"thank you for putting together such a nice show and for all of your hard work organizing the event. It really turned out great! Thanks again."
Kendra Asmus, Carnival Cruise Lines
"I had a wonderful; time and thought the venues were just great. I got to meet so many new buyers to Travel Impressions. With this I know our exposure will certainly grow the business."
Dot Brunnhoelzl, Travel Impressions
"Thank you so much for the outstanding trade show and reception last night at Michael's Shoreline. Not only was it educational, but it was fun. We liked the format also, very informational."
