Feedback

  • Can't think of a thing to do better. This was the easiest way to find a hotel. The whole experience was wonderful.”~Susan Webber, Girls Soccer Team

  • If you want to have a meeting in a city that really understands the importance of creating a partnership Jacksonville is the place. AECT has held two National Conventions with 1000 attendees each time and the ratings were extremely high. The airport is accessible from many major hubs and the transportation to the Hyatt Regency-Riverfront was easy and quick. This city and the Visit Jacksonville group know how to make meetings successful. They get what it means to form a partnership!”~Phillip Harris Ed.D., Executive Director, AECT

  • I was in Jacksonville, Florida this week for the AAPC annual Conference. I wish to commend American Coach Lines for the excellent service provided during the Conference. I was so impressed that there was a live person in front of the Crowne Plaza on Monday morning to make sure we had prompt service to the Convention Center. The service back and forth each day was extremely prompt and the drivers were so courteous. Everyone I heard talking about the service made positive comments - I never heard one negative remark about the service during the entire Conference. I have been to other conferences where shuttles were involved and I have never experienced the excellent service provided in Jacksonville. KUDOS for an excellent job. Thank you so much. Please pass this on to everyone involved. They deserve to know what a wonderful job they did. ”~Marty Sloop, AAPC June 2010

  • A thank you for the fabulous gift in my room today! A wonderful surprise at the end of my day! I am so excited to bring one of my groups to Jacksonville. I love this destination and hope to bring my other groups here as well.”~Pam Soules, Winmark Corporation

  • The Prime Osborn Convention Center is charming, the city is beautiful, and our group had nothing but highest praise for their experience there. To say that a miracle occurred from the time of the flood to the start of our conference is not a stretch, and the ‘Visit Jacksonville’ representatives were a huge part of that miracle. We could not have done this without them. Thank you-thank you-thank you!!!”~AAPC June 2010-Melanie Mestas, Conference Director
