Feedback

  • Feedback from attendees was ?Best ever reunion!" And it was our 19th!”~James Horn, USS Haynsworth

  • 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)

  • Because of your efforts, we are in a much better position to negotiation with our vendors who share our goals and objectives.”~Ann Koralewski, Meeting Planner, Div. of Continuing Education, University of Florida

  • 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

  • We all loved the area, it was beautiful and interesting and we are planning on coming back.”~Ellie O'Neill, Diamond Tours
