PBR has established events that sell out everywhere from Madison Square Garden in New York City to The Pond in Anaheim California and points in between. The PBR event in Sioux Falls South Dakota has the honorable distinction of being the fastest event to reach a sell-out, a monumental accomplishment for our first time ever in the market. Our success would not have been possible without the support of community leaders, the Sioux Falls Convention and Visitor Bureau and the venue staff who embraced the event and made it their own.
Sioux Falls, as the host city, impressed our delegates immediately, from the opening night dinner on stage at the beautiful Washington Pavilion to the reception the following night at the Falls Overlook Café for all delegates. During the conference itself, Sioux Falls was able to showcase a first-class Convention Center and the Sheraton Hotel, but also sightseeing to a local winery, the Outdoor Campus and Sertoma Butterfly House.
Our meeting planners left Sioux Falls with a great impression. Many commented how the Sioux Falls CVB and partners completely exceeded their expectations.
On behalf of the National Institutes Health (NIH) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program Office and SBIR/STTR Community, thank you for being the liaison to the convention center and hotel accommodations for the 15th Annual NIH SBIR/STTR Conference in Sioux Falls, SD. The conference was a huge success and it was a pleasure to work with you and the CVB. Your coordination of the Sioux Falls Convention Center; Sioux Falls Sheraton Hotel; and the two overflow properties Ramada Hotel & Suites, and the Best Western PLUS Ramkota was a tremendous asset and was a huge factor for NIH to hold our conference in Sioux Falls.
Health Professions Network is truly thankful for the graciousness of Sioux Falls CVB for hosting our May 2014 event. Wow, HPN attendees were absolutely amazed at the Healthcare institutions in Sioux Falls. Thank you SFCVB for arranging fantastic tours of Sanford Research and Avera Health. Oh, and the meals were fabulous! Sioux Falls Convention & Visitors Bureau and everyone involved with this event truly provided us with a great sense of all Sioux Falls has to offer so our attendees can return with their organizations.
Sioux Falls CVB and the Convention Center did an outstanding job with logistics and making us feel at home. The food was excellent, the setting was comfortable and every representative exuded "southern hospitality"! Please share my gratitude and complete satisfaction with everyone who worked diligently to make my stay worthwhile. I appreciated Sheraton's hospitality - their staff bent over backwards to make us comfortable.
