The following piece was written by Sarah Fantuazzi, Northeast Chapter board member, after returning from the ACCESS 2017 annual conference. It was shared with the EDPA Board of Directors more recently:
“We had our first upstate NY chapter event in August. We hosted a lighthearted meeting at a Red Wings game. One of the gentlemen who attended was from PRG. He’s new (2 years) to this industry and was trying to build connections. Our Northeast Chapter event gave him some amazing connections with Hadley Exhibits and a couple of additional vendors who he is now official partners with. In addition, our event led him to the Northeast Golf Classic 2017 golf tournament where he was connected with another company who he is now partnered with for events around the country.
He was very thankful for this and stopped by the RES office today to personally thank me for introducing him to people.
So…we truly are making a difference for people in this industry and should be proud of it!!!”
