Just wanted to thank you for your great job coordinating Metrocon! I thought it went well. I liked the way the classes were spaced out. It allowed me to take 2-3 classes in a row and then allowed more time to view the vendors, etc. Good job!

Metrocon continues to bring fun, interesting and informative information about the interior design industry. Thanks for keeping everything fresh and upbeat. I learned so much from CEU classes pertaining to collaboration in healthcare environment.

METROCON is easy on you.

The expo, all programming, and Thursday  Happy Hour are all in one building, so you don’t have to go running from place to place. Plus, all the exhibitors are in one large, daylight-filled room with wide aisles and a high ceiling, so you don’t feel like a mouse navigating an underground maze.

I’ll be back next year. Had a great time and learned lots of stuff that applied to present situations. Thanks!

Awesome Metrocon this year. Literally loved all my CEU’s. The best and most inspiring was the one about autism. Wow!

[The mobile app made it] very easy for me to find product specific to my industry. I found a new vendor with amazing health care fabrics that I had not known about.
