Participant Quotes

“My Trade Show experience yesterday (visited with 4 teams) was just outstanding. Really well done ‘virtual’ experience.” – Ray J., Vice President – Corporate Sustainability, HSBC Bank USA

“I visited the show this afternoon and did a little shopping. I was really impressed with the experience. And while nothing beats the energy of the live trade fair, this virtual trade fair was the next best thing.” – Julie W., Assistant Principal, Mount St. Mary Academy, Kenmore, NY

“It was a great experience for my students, so proud of them! In two hours every room had at least one sale, we handled a situation with 6 customers coming in at the same time and wanting to be in one breakout room!” – Donna T., VE Coordinator, High School of Economics and Finance
