“What an amazing staff you all have at the Convention Center. From the janitorial staff to the Directors of the departments, each of them were extremely accommodating and personable. Many of the staff knew my name and would say hi each day, which is a tribute to how well your staff connect with people in the facility. Our event went seamlessly, and it is largely due to the center and the knowledge each department had of our program specifications.”

- Abby Eastman, National Association of College & University Business Officers; NACUBO 2019 Annual Meeting
