Feedback

  • The owners are thrilled with how the meeting went, and they loved Jacksonville. Nothing they would change. The Hyatt went out of their way to smile and be helpful. Jacksonville is fabulous, it was great to be on the river. All of the contractors were very happy with the venue and meeting. I want to put Jacksonville in our meeting rotation!”~Kate Schifle, Director of Seminar Management for National Comfort Institute

  • 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

  • "With such a vast array of activities and sites, Jacksonville is a fantastic destination to explore."”~Patrice Raplee, Oct. 26, 2010

  • Always very attentive. A great staff to work with!”~Larry Scovotto , Executive Director, Florida Fire Chiefs

  • You guys were so very helpful ... one stop shopping made my work easier. I have never worked with a CVB that offered as much or was as attentive.”~Grace Taylor, CMC Recycling (Commercial Metals Company)

    Hello Anglers! Summer has been here for quit a while in N.E. Florida. Most of you don't really care what month the calendar says. As a fisherman, I call it summer when the Spanish Mackerel show up at the inlet. And that happened back in May!
