Testimonials

"IPEC is THE event for both novice and experienced independent planners. Everyone is open to express their concerns and posing questions without worrying about 'the other side' and suppliers are truly interested in our positions and challenges, ergo the round table discussions, which are insightful and we learn from each other as well as suppliers. Our discussion on the RFP process helped me to reformulate my own forms and I believe this will result in more usable proposals. Thank YOU."

—Doris Mayer, Meetings Plus

"I applaud Northstar for caring enough about Independent Planners that they designed a meeting just for us. We are critical to the industry and have different needs than the other niche Planner demographics."

—Tess Vismale, iSocialExecution, Inc.

"In two short days IPEC accomplished two very important goals for me - it provided an intimate forum where I could meet with suppliers I've been interested in meeting; and just as importantly, it enabled me to network and share best practices with respected colleagues who do just what I do all across the country."

—Brett Sterenson, Hotel Lobbyists
