One of the things our staff could not stop talking about was the type of delegates who attended this event—their smiles, their good behavior and their friendliness. I think your message [“Love Never Fails”] is one that these delegates had already learned before coming here. It was transmitted by everyone who stayed in our hotel. We would love to have your delegates here again.”
