"Thank you again for another inspiring conference! I felt recharged and ready to change the world when I returned to work after an amazing week of networking in San Francisco. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the conference – from judging, to speaking on the panels, to presenting an award."
"I wanted to say thank you for the invite to speak on a panel and the great conference. It is fantastic to see the momentum continue to build after all these years and the conference feels like a reunion of friends as much as a business venture. "
"Thank you for the opportunity to participate in TVOT 2011. Our unique session was particularly interesting. From preparation to the actual discussion, I really enjoyed the whole process."
"I cannot say enough good things about you and this year's TVOT conference. The venue was beyond compare, artistic and functional and funky and the gardens and OMIGOD I *love* Yerba Buena. For real the best venue I have ever experienced. I do realize I am gushing like a GIRL, but I just loved it. The size of the conference was ideal: Not too big. Not too small. Just right. The sessions were perfectly relevant and hit along the major chords of the sector in a way that belies your passion and expertise. And I will just never, ever get over (in a good way) you getting misty over Philo Farnsworth's birthday, your discussions with his wife Pam, and then exclaiming "I am verklempt." WHO SAYS I'M VERKLEMPT? I LOVE IT. J The depth of your passion is genuine and extremely refreshing. I just really loved everything about TVOT. Thank you for including me. Two BIG thumbs up. If I had a third thumb, it'd be up too. Thanks for the putting it together, and thanks for including me. "

Nick DeMartino Consulting
"Just a quick note among many, I'm sure, to congratulate you and Richard and your team on an excellent event. Your curatorial mastery is coming into its own now. You have an extraordinary ability to tell a story using the medium of conference planning. It's a mix of being very smart about the content and very savvy about the people. This has always been true, but I think you have crossed an invisible line into another dimension with this show. Everything ran on time, with a professionalism that was a joy to behold. "
Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)
"I was most impressed with the quality of the conference. The stage set, art exhibit, audience quality and planning were amazing. Fantastic job."
"Really enjoyed the show; think it was a roaring success. Thanks for the opportunity on the panel, met some great people."
"Wow, what an amazing event you put on. Everything about TVOT was top notch; from the speakers and presenters, to details like food and stage sets. From the high quality (and quantity) of information presented, to the high-level industry players involved. The organization alone of the event was impressive, while the execution was superlative. Everything ran on-time and as smoothly as a well-oiled machine. Your team is to be highly commended as well. I cannot thank you enough for including me in the Social Media panel discussion. And the time you spent with me personally, introducing me to people and helping me spread the word about theatrics.com, was extremely generous. Thank you for welcoming myself and my company into the industry."
"It was indeed great fun to verbally spar in such good company! Bravo to Tracy for the awesome stage set-up, to Will for the fearless time-keeping and to my panel "partners-in-crime" for their daring opinions! Looking forward to meeting again at the next TVOT show."
"Thank you Tracy for providing such a wonderful forum for us and this great industry."
