I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the hospitality we received this year at The Rocky Mountain Gift Show. Your staff was awesome and we had an extremely successful show. We could not believe the amount of interest that was shown in our product. Not bad for our first trade show ever.

It is indeed a pleasure to come to Denver and exhibit at your shows because of great facility that you provide.
