What people are saying


Visit Greenville SC

"Thank you so much for the great coverage on our remarkable community. The article was very well written and full of personality. I sincerely enjoyed reading it. Seriously, I can not recall when I enjoyed an article as much as I did yours. You are true journalists and it showed. WOW! Thank you!"

Natalie Alvanez, Visit Oakland

"CME has been a true partner in the success of Visit Oakland’s new website launch. They have gone above and beyond to provide us with an interim website solution while we awaited our new branding. Their creative team has developed an excellent product, advised us on best practices, guided us to great third party vendors and most importantly, kept us on track with a detailed project plan."

Michael Flores, City of South Padre Island CVB

“We are very appreciative of the Connect Texas team’s efforts from start to finish during the entire process. The reverse tradeshow in Frisco, TX was a strong success for us as we seek to rebuild our Texas Association sales efforts. The meeting planners were qualified, interested and incredibly engaging. We walked away with 3 RFPs in-hand for ‘hot’ pieces of business, made several new promising contacts with Austin-based meeting planners and expect to generate 6-8 more RFPs within the next six months. In short- we are coming back!"

Brett Sterenson, Hotel Lobbyists

"No trade show more respects the notion that our time is valuable than Connect Marketplace. Somehow they are able to synthesize quantity and quality better than anyone else in the industry."

Karen Schwartz, State Bar of Michigan

"I recently attended my first Connect conference and was completely blown away. The conference was well-planned, well-run, educational and outstanding. I appreciated the dynamic, well-informed speakers and enjoyed networking with so many qualified people in the industry. I just want to say thanks for creating such a memorable and worthwhile experience."
