                                   “The Vermont Recreation Conference exceeded our expectations.                                                           Our company was so well received and we got so much foot traffic that we are                      gearing up for lots of new potential business in Vermont. Well worth the trip for us!”

                                     “This conference is very well run and a wonderful opportunity to meet                                     with current clients in a less formal  environment.”

                         “The VT Recreation Conference is one of the best delegate interactive conferences                                       in New England.  The location and value are well worth attending and exhibiting each year. I look forward to this conference and participating as a vendor every year.”
