"The education and collaboration made this an extremely impactful experience for me. To understand what some of my peers are doing, both good practices and areas for improvement, help me understand how I make my community better. Really enjoyed getting to have honest, open conversations with so many leaders in the sport tourism industry." - Ben Snyder, Grand Junction Sports Commission

"This was my first Chief Executive Summit and what a great job done by both Sports ETA as well as the San Jose Team. They brought in great speakers and the content relative to what's going on in today's world." Mark Rath, Visit Omaha
