“GTM definitely met and exceeded my expectations. The wealth of information gained from the one-on-one appointments and boardroom presentations will be hard to measure. The fact that so much more information was gained at the different networking opportunities truly made GTM the most valuable industry event I have attended this year. ”
— Mary Jo Salas, Alamo Travel Group
