    "Hospitality Fest exposed us to an audience that did not necessarily see the Museum of Science and Industry as a meeting and event venue. We received 82 business cards. Yes we are returning next year. We feel the audience is a quality audience that will lead to booked event business in the future."

    Stan Hansen, Museum of Science & Industry/Sodexo

    A belated thank you for the opportunity to represent WINiT at your inaugural Hospitality Fest in Chicago! It was certainly valuable.  New members joined and networking opportunities opened up for existing members.  Anytime we can spread the word about our incredible organization and meet new organizations, is wonderful!
