“There’s so much about Heartland Travel Showcase that impressed me! I discovered a lot of new places that I had no idea were even out there! In fact, I had already planned the itinerary for a trip to Michigan. After attending the show, I ended up adding several stops along the way. I like the appointment scheduling process and the fact that I met with suppliers with whom I do business. It’s always great to put a face to a name and build on a relationship.” – Krystal Carter
