We attend trade shows all over the country as a Presenter and Vendor and we were commenting on this being the best run and most professional of all the 100s we have been a part of. In many cases the Exhibitors are an afterthought in most shows. Not yours!!!! Your show made the Exhibitors feel welcomed, appreciated, and most importantly took every effort to fill the Hall with time allotments that made us front and center. I wish you would write a book on how to give a GREAT CONFERENCE!!! We have already reserved the time slot on our calendar for next year's conference. Wishing you and your staff only the best. See you next year..."

As an exhibitor, there were so many opportunities beyond having our booth that benefited our non-profit organization.

We took advantage of attending a few trainings that has helped us learn more about the out-of-school time field and allowed us to further develop our programs. This is more than a conference, but an experience we were glad to be a part of. The energy of attendees was awesome and the BOOST staff made our experience seamless. Will definitely be back!"
