Feedback

  • I wish all CVBs treated us as well Visit Jacksonville - so helpful and proactive. You are certainly a credit to the people and businesses of Jacksonville. I appreciate your hard work on our behalf so much. Thank you again, until the next time we are in Jacksonville.”~Marc Bostrom, Campus Crusade for Christ

  • 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

  • This missive comes to express the lasting impressions we left Jacksonville with. My colleagues and I enjoyed the beauty of the city and the outstanding job Glenda Washington with your organization did in hosting our group.”~Church of God in Christ 2010 Bishop’s Conference-Bishop Floyd E. Perry

  • 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
