“I would like to visit some of the destinations represented at this event because I otherwise would not have considered them for my programs. I like making the connections to build new relationships and continue with former prospects to eventually host a program in those areas.”

  • – Tami Maynard, Council on Occupational Education

“After hearing about Rendezvous South from Loretta Howard at the Irving, Texas CVB, I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to visit with representatives from several places, at one time in one place. This event will allow me to network not only with those involved in the facility but also with other meeting planners, without too much time away from my daily schedule. It will provide much more efficient use of my travel expenses.”

  • – Selina Mirza, Texas Floodplain Management Association

“The event staff were so fun & bubbly! I don’t know where they got all that energy! It was so fun & refreshing to meet planners interested in our venue and to meet other venues from all over the South! Keep up the great work and I look forward to the next year!”
