    The 2017 summit was very beneficial to me. It reminded me that we need to continue to value our facilities and staff who are responsible for these critical assets. The experience will make me look at some things differently. Executive Associate AD

    The overall experience was amazing. It far surpassed my expectations. Normally, it is hard to engage in genuine conversations with representatives that are open and truly interested in your product/company. The way the summit allowed true vendor/client integration is second to none. Whether it was keynote speaker sessions, socials, dinners, roundtables, we had exposure from the time we set foot in the hotel. In my 7+ years in my industry, I have never experienced a conference/show/summit like this one. Sales Executive

    Great venue and very well organized. Thought folks were well cared for and things flowed well. I like the one-on-one with vendors. Chief of Staff

    As a first time attendee, I knew I would enjoy the speakers and but really found the one on one meeting with vendors to as productive. The flow from program to vendor meeting was easy and allowed a break from each as the time at each was just right. Sr. Associate AD/Event & Facility Operations

    Great event this year. Quality meetings – pace was excellent, no one felt pressured. There were many open dialogues. CAFS is one of the best events I attend. North American Manager
