"We enjoyed working with the LES & I staff. Their marketing assistance before the event helped us gain exposure in the region. We took advantage of their staffing assistance to help run our event. The registration people were delightful - knowledgeable about the area and very friendly with our guests. LES & I also provided promotional materials and coupons for our exhibitors and our attendees."
