As Rob Coffman has already indicated (see the President's letter to the left), we are
giving you a sneak peek at our still-ongoing 2014 NEC & Expo survey results. We returned
to the West Coast this year for the first time since our 2005 annual conference. Next year,
we will again look to the Midwest to hold the NEC-and, for the first time ever, in the Land
of 10,000 Lakes.
But first, here is some more feedback we have received thus far regarding the
We asked all attendees about their experience with host city, Portland, Oregon-
63 percent (huge number) of all attendees had never been to Portland.
65 percent (wow!) of all attendees said their impression of Portland was "excellent."
We asked all attendees about their overall NEC experience-
90 percent (!!!) of all attendees said their overall NEC experience was excellent or good.
We asked all attendees if they planned to attend and recommend the 2015 NEC-
75 percent strongly agreed or agreed.
Have you ever been to Minneapolis - the City by Nature? Will you participate at
SGMP's 33rd annual NEC & Expo in 2015? We are eager for feedback from all of our
members over the next 12 months on those two key questions.
Thank you for your membership.
