"The local media relations support offered to SME through Boe Marketing on behalf of the Salt Palace Convention Center was outstanding. The communications professional assisted us with obtaining the maximum exposure and visibility throughout our convention, providing opportunities for televised interviews and press coverage of our key events. Major news releases prior to and follow-up documentation after the event helped to convey the positive economic impact our 6,700 meeting attendees would have on the local economy, as well as ensuring contact with the best local journalists for our news releases."

Boe Marketing helped to make this a memorable experience for our members and exhibitors."

"Hi Michael! I'm in the Vancouver airport. Dinner at Cucina Toscana was marvelous! Walter and his crew were fabulous. We never looked at the menus. We let Walter decide what each of us was going to have. I anticipated a substantial bill, but it's wasn't as high as I assumed it would be for the superb quality and service. By far, the best dining experience in SLC, frankly anywhere that I can recently remember. Very memorable and everything was delicious! Thank you for the recommendation, reservation and a fabulous convention! We look forward to coming back."

"Salt Lake City has a small-town look, big-city feel- when I say that, I mean that I feel like I can get anything in Salt Lake City that I can in a bigger city, but the small-town-ness, the people are nice and friendly."

"Salt Lake offers many places for my attendees to continue their networking after the meeting is over for the day."

"After our conference, we take anyone that wants to go to Snowbird and ski for a day. And that has become such a great activity, and people that don't even ski come, and just go up and just have fun, drink, and eat, and play in the snow, and have a good time."

"Overall, Utah just is a great place to bring groups because we have everything from the mountains and everything it provides, and then nightclubs that are easily accessible from the convention center and other great restaurants that are five-star. It's a great place to bring groups."

"We have over 700 flights coming and going each day, and accessibility to the city is just amazing. It takes just under 10 minutes to get to the city in a taxi, and if you take TRAX, our light rail system, it's a great trip into the city and it's very convenient. And we've got very strong airlines in the area, and you can get to anywhere in the world. We have direct flights into Asia and direct flights into Europe these days, and so it's a great location and great hub city."

"I was very surprised the first time I came to Salt Lake City how close the airport is to the venue. An 8-minute cab ride the convention center is un-heard of. It's nice to know that if you have a meeting and you need to get there early in the morning and your flight is early, you're going to make it, there's no traffic. The city is easy to manipulate and move around, and I have to say that everyone I ran into in the city was helpful."

"Transportation is one of our largest costs, and so we always worry about that, and we worry about the access into the city- what do people have to go to, to get here, so Salt Lake has great access, they are a hub for Delta but they have many other carriers that come in here."
