This was our second year as sponsors for the Event Planner Expo and we loved it. ... We have already sent quotes to contacts that we made at this years show which was an immediate return on investment for us. We qualified over 50 new strong leads as everyone who attended was looking to make connections and learn more about our company. Looking forward to being a part of next years Event Planner Expo.

Attending The Event Planner Expo 2017 was the best way to start off my October. I was inspired with so many fresh ideas to share with clients. Looking forward to what's in store for 2018!
