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
