I found the information good but a little too basic in some cases. For next year I think some round-table discussions and more case studies wold be very helpful to CVBs. I really enjoyed Google. Thanks again for another good conference.

Thank you for another fabulous Summit. This year’s event was wonderful and the presenters were all outstanding. If I had to critique one area which disappointed me, this would be my inability to take advantage of all three workshops. It was tough to have to choose just one when each were equally important to me.
We (Dave, JP and I ) look forward to seeing you again next year.

I thought the conference was excellent and will immediately make sure we have budgeted to attend next year. I’m looking forward to implementing the many great suggestions and strategies that were shared during the info-packed sessions. My only complaints, if you can hardly call them that, is that I was brain dead by the second to the last session (one) and (two) I didn’t have any downtime to take care of business back on the east coast unless I missed part of a session (which I hated to do because the info was so valuable).
Your staff is outstanding. Liz was not only attentive in terms of the conference details; she also was a great ambassador for San Francisco.
I would recommend not providing tote bags as they are not necessary and wasteful; or perhaps providing eco-friendly bags that can be used for grocery or market shopping instead of plastic bags.
Thank you for a fantastic conference!

First of all, thanks to you for providing eBrains a great sponsorship opporunity…a great investment. Looking at the conference from an attendee for a moment, I probably am passing on to you items that you have already heard, but just for the record.
Content was great…timely, relevant and targeted appropriately. If I’m a user, I think I would like to know a bit more about “what’s this going to cost me?” I’d be interested to know if your attendees do want to know more about costs…

This was our first time attending the Summit. I was looking for a “jump-start” into these topics, and your program really nailed it. Even though we are not a DMO or VCB, almost all of the content was applicable to our business — a domestic niche tour operator. The quality of the presenters was excellent, especially considering the relatively small size of the audience, and I made a few potentially valuable contacts. We’ll be back.
- Dan Wulfman, Tracks & Trails
It was so well done and a real “eye-opener” for me. I can apply some of the points presented to my day to day operations of both departments that I direct. An educational program that makes a mark!
Kudos to you and staff.
