What a fantastic time we had at the 2017 CollegeSource Conference! We’re admittedly biased, but San Diego continues to be a perfect backdrop for training and networking. It has the right ingredients of beautiful scenery and a nice calm vibe that makes rolling up our sleeves to get to work and focusing on the learning at hand a total breeze. Being close to home also allows us to put more high-touch moments into the week and to bring additional support staff, ensuring a more comfortable experience for all attendees.
We’re still blushing over the kind feedback from our attendees:
- “Staff is friendly, information is very valuable. Best conference I attend every year.”
- “This is by far my favorite conference. I learn so much, and I feel like I am with my dearest friends.”
- “Learning about all the new great features of all the products. Socializing with so many AMAZING people.”
- “The networking opportunities are unbeatable.“
- “Staff availability is always great. Love being able to meet face to face and make connections for later support or follow up.”
- “I think it was perfect in all areas, including location.”
My favorite comment, “You guys sure know how to conference! Very organized, staff availability, friendly, food was good, beach party a blast! Thank you sooo much!!”
Our staff spends countless hours organizing and preparing for presentations, all with the goal to make this worthwhile for our customers who travel from locations near and far, and who have to make the case for funds to attend. We want you to leave with more knowledge, new and stronger connections, and a renewed energy to take back to your campus. There are, of course, things we can do better, and we appreciate that we have the kind of relationship with our customers that they are honest in telling us those things. We are listening!
All the hard work is worth it once the week begins, and we’re all together! There was a lot of learning and laughing, so be sure to check out the 400+ pictures we shared on Facebook!
We also put together a short video which captures the essence of the week: old friends catching up, making new friends, connecting with CollegeSource staff, working hard, and letting loose. We hope you like it!
Save the Date! We will be hosting the next conference June 18-21, 2018 at Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego, CA.
