"Before June comes to a close, I wanted to send a huge THANK YOU for your support in making the 2019 Trees Florida Conference & Trade Show wildly successful! The 2019 Trees Florida Conference & Trade Show boasted a record-breaking attendance of 417 arborists from around the state enjoyed educational sessions from over 20 nationally recognized speakers and featured the local Urban Forestry Bus Tour highlighting several successful tree planting projects, ongoing landscape maintenance challenges, and horticulturally significant locations throughout the City. I truly appreciate you taking the time to meet with me, to understand our event, and to lend assistance with all aspects of planning. The handouts you supplied were a hit among attendees – most of which were local and able to take full advantage of the discount coupons and maps. I enjoyed getting to know you both (Elena & Anna) and look forward to working with you soon. Thank you again and congratulations on a job well done!"

"For our recent Corporate Meeting Solutions program, American Express brought together our team of more than 250 persons from all of North America. Fort Lauderdale provided an outstanding location and delivered a terrifically successful series of events that were beyond our expectations. The destination was easy to get to for our participants from many domestic cities and only a reasonable transfer from Miami for international travelers. The meeting and exhibit facilities at the Broward County Convention Center were exceptional and the service providers were definitely able to anticipate our needs. Fortunately we had the opportunity take advantage of the fabulous weather outdoors for our evening events, including an amazing group cruise aboard the Grand Floridian yacht on the Intracoastal Waterway that was one of the many special events of our meeting. Our team left Fort Lauderdale feeling energized, and motivated to get back to work!"

"For our recent event, the team at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau was wonderful to work with. They are experienced, professional, and provide outstanding service. The selection of Fort Lauderdale for this event was a great decision which resulted in an excellent incentive and meeting. The community truly works together and knows how to get things done. I would highly recommend working with the Greater Fort Lauderdale CVB again and look forward to going back to Fort Lauderdale at the next opportunity."

"I cannot thank the Greater Fort Lauderdale CVB enough for the support that made the ISITE Classic such a spectacular event. The destination showed our guests the best of the area --- the best of the best. We've had only raves from our guests --- and that's all I could ask for. Thanks, again. "

"This is our very first E4 event in Fort Lauderdale and it was a huge success. The city is experiencing fantastic growth, making it a perfect place in which to bring our highest volume clients and our preferred suppliers together. E4 provided our attendees an opportunity to really experience the high quality event facilities, new luxury hotels, recreational offerings, and fantastic waterways and beach which make the destination such a hot spot."
