  • The Lip Smacking Foodie Tour was really fun. I had a really great time with my clients just going around Vegas and trying out some of the great food options.

  • The opportunity to meet with suppliers from all over in one spot over a few days saved me a ton of time having people I wanted to talk to all in the same place. I loved that!
