"My participants felt provided for and quite special, actually. One participant in particular, when looking for her boxed lunch, broke into a huge grin and said, "When I saw 'no eggs, no pineapple,' I knew  that was made just for me.... Thank you for teaming up with me to provide a stellar experience for our guests."
- Sarah, Conference Coordinator
