"The event was jam packed with info."

My wife and I have been operating STRs for five years and still found so much useful information to add to our business. A big plus was the food, mixers, and goodies that were offered - it was beyond expectations.

- Zev Forrest

"The experience exceeded my expectations."

I had a fantastic time. I was able to meet hosts in person for the first time. The experience exceeded my expectations. The speaker and presenters were energetic and full of useful information. I cannot wait for next year. I hope the event happens more than once a year.

"I can’t wait to get home and get going to move my STR biz forward."

Great event. Every speaker gave us good content that I can go back and actually implement and use. Events you usually go home and you are overwhelmed so you do nothing. Not here, they made sure we wrote out our top 2-3 priorities. I can’t wait to get home and get going to move my STR biz forward.

- Lynn Anderson
