Feedback

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
