You and Tom did a great job!
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, came back with tons of great info and got to put faces with names for so many of my colleagues I share and chat with on the boards.
It was truly a great experience for me.
Thanks for putting it together!

It was amazing to meet everyone in person and when Derek decided to do his rendition of cowtipping (after a few drinks), I about lost it. Had a great time and thanks for all of the effort.
And yes, you have outgrown Canton. Time to move it to a bigger venue.

Pam and Tom - who says "you can't teach an old dog new tricks"? Since returning from Ohio, I took the organization tips that I learned and started to put them in place. Learned some photography tips from Ben Jacobs which were priceless! Used the dog treats that I won to promote Thank You gifts at a new Paw Spa (they ordered!), met up with vendors I haven't seen in a long, long time and created new partnerships with new vendors. And thanks to Lisa Bevans, I called my website designer to get it going properly! And Lisa...GO BLUE!!! LOL!
Thank you for all your efforts! I have met my best friends at gift basket conventions and a few of them were at yours! Everyone in attendance came there for a purpose - I believe that Attendees walked away with many questions answered and new friendships were started.
By the way, your son was great! He got everyone "smiling" No wonder you put him on phones as a first impression of your muffin business! He would have been able to sell dozens to me!
Thanks again for all your hard work!
