“This was my first NAC show. I thought the appointments were very productive and I met a lot of new people. Obviously people know Monterey for Pebble Beach, but there are a number of courses they are unfamiliar with and I was able to help them with those. We are focusing on China, Canada and Mexico a lot, and I felt I was able to make significant and meaningful connections with those markets, which was very good in terms of our budgets and priorities for next year. We co-sponsored NAC this year and I am definitely planning to come back next year.”
