May 24-28, 2006 – “The SGMP Educational Summit” The 24thAnnual Educational Conference was held at the new Hyatt Regency Convention Center; the tradeshow was held at the convention center.
…..The Mile High City of Denver attracted more than 870 members to the educational summit amid the beautiful Rockies. Mountains and people were moved with the keynote speaker Steve Ford, actor and son of the late former President Gerald Ford. Steve gave us insight into the White House through the experience of his truly American family and the foundation. Workshops covered ROI, meeting planning, supplier skills, technology trends and legal reviews. Suppliers and planners were given a free night to make plans with each other, plus a night to explore downtown Denver, in the first Network Night. The annual tradeshow was pure red, white and blue, from patriotic decor and Uncle Sam to the entertainment of the Liberty Belles, not to mention the Big Blue Bear that looked over the convention center all week.
