Testimonials Stream In From the Education Facilities Management Forum in Dallas, Texas

The Education Facilities Management Forum took place in Dallas, Texas on April 25 & 26, 2016. Feedback is streaming in from attendees already! Here's what they have to say about their Forum Experience:

"Forum did a great job! Positively was beyond my expectation! Love the layout, the best one I have been to yet!"
- Burleson ISD 

"This was my first time at an event like this format and it was great. I loved time with the companies without any pressure or sales pitch. All of them even said to just call and ask questions about anything. Great job by the Forum Events staff before, during, and after the event. Thanks!"
- CitySquare 

"The Forum was a great experience in allowing direct one-on-one contact with potential vendors. Having the opportunity to meet with several in a day with specific time frames made it much easier to get to the point and look at specific opportunities."
- Grand Prairie ISD 

"The one-on-one meetings with vendors allowed me to ask questions that pertained to my particular facility without interrupting or listening to others who had different needs than my own. The time allowed for these meetings was just right, enough to demonstrate the need for the product without it really being a sales pitch."
- Hendrix College 

"Very nice! Enjoyed the event. Well organized and the Forum staff were very helpful. Thanks for the invite!"
- Magnolia ISD 

"The ability to pre-select vendors prior to the event made my experience and met my organization's needs. Liked the schedule and format. Employees were friendly and helpful. As my district prepares for a new bond program, the contacts here were great. I also like it when companies bring demos of some of their latest products, as I need to see it and touch it to understand its capabilities."
- Spring Branch ISD
