"Our customers could not stop raving about the show and those that volunteered became the hits of the rest of the conference. I also want to compliment you on your selection of hypnotic selections. They were in good taste, clean fun, and showed a very 'human' set of reactions. The whole experience was enjoyable and enlightening."

Bruce R. Jackson
Vice President, Sales & Marketing
ADVANTIS

Richard G. MacPherson
Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales
ASCOM TIMEPLEX

I look forward to working with you next Spring."
