“Attending an average of 10-12 meeting industry events a year, INTER[action] was the first time in years that we left an event excited and energized about the ROI.  The entire event from the pre-show communication of the American Express Meetings & Events team, the quality of the appointments at the event, and the post event conversations that are occurring are hands down the pinnacle of any event we attend.” Production Resource Group

“The last two years, Pc/nametag® attended
INTER[action] with a goal to build a relationship with American Express Meetings & Events. It was thrilling to meet our contacts face-to-face, which in turn helps us strengthen positive relationships with our customers. Since attending in November 2014, we’ve seen a 76% growth in sales with American Express Meeting & Events as a whole, which is absolutely beyond our expectations! I found the event experience to be very interactive, productive and a great way to maintain and build relationships. I would recommend this event hands down. It delivers the expected results and then some!” Pc/nametag®

The relationships help with conversion and a deeper level of understanding of the accounts. Looking forward to New Orleans already!” Park Plaza, Carlson Rezidor
