What People Are Saying

This was the best design event I have ever attended! From the moment you arrive, you are welcomed with open arms, friendly faces and receive incredible V.I.P treatment. You get to experience an incredible one on one experience with the vendors and their products in their showrooms, but even better than that is that you create long lasting relationships with those vendors and other hospitality designers. It was a unique event that I believe everyone should experience.

– Tatiana Ovalle | Carnival Cruise Line

The program catered to the individuals attending, allowed time to get to know the other specifiers, and gave us a chance to experience the best of Atlanta. Intersection: hospitality knows that business is built on relationships, and their strategic approach allowed us to build lasting relationships with all involved.

– Amanda Fleck | Addir Design

The event was second to none. I have attended Match, Hotec or BItec, but being able to see and feel the products was a definitive plus in my mind, everyone was professional and I felt like I forged new friendships to buy from.

– Anthony J. DiGuiseppe | AIA RIBA of DiGuiseppe Architects

Intersection: Hospitality was THE best use of my time in creating and strengthening relationships with new and current vendors. AmericasMart made it easy to get around, the hotel was very comfortable, the other attendees phenomenal and the events were amazing! I wholeheartedly recommend any hospitality professional to attend this wonderful event, as it was very educational, informative and fun.

– Garland Stiles | Benjamin West

The caliber of vendors and industry colleagues that I had the opportunity to meet and interact with, was unmatched as compared to previous events that I've attended in the past. Thanks to both you and to your entire team, it was time well spent!

– Tarlene M. Davis | Hospitality Angelz

It was a valuable experience because I was able to meet new sources and take a deeper dive with companies I already have a relationship with. Seeing the products in person rather than a catalog takes new relationships to the next level because they are providing proof of quality right there in the showroom.

– Crystal Nodsle | Shalls Design Studio
