"I can truly say that this event is set up in a way that no one else in our industry is doing. It gave me an opportunity to focus, in one afternoon, on vendor search for budgeting purposes and to collect vital services for our teams onsite. Within one week, I am already reaching out to a new vendor for service."  -Director of Property Management, attendee
