SHREVEPORT CONVENTION CENTER, SHREVEPORT LOUISIANA
"After being at the Shreveport Expo Hall for many years, we were concerned about the move to the new Shreveport Convention Center. As it turns out, the move was one of the best decisions our company has ever made. The entire staff and SMG made the transition into the new building run smoothly. They were so helpful in every detail for our show. Not to mention the fabulous new building that really impressed some of our traveling show car exhibitors. We are looking forward to working with SMG again for our 2008 show."

"In 2006, BWI moved their annual EXPO to Shreveport, LA at the new Shreveport Convention Center. We were a little nervous about all the "new," but everything went great! The staff was very accommodating, and the convention center itself was a hit with our customers. The food was delicious, and I cannot wait to see what they have in store for 2007! Thanks SCC for making our EXPO spectacular!"
"By all measures, the Energize Learning with Math and Science conference was a tremendous success. The 2,176 registered participants and the numerous exhibitors loved the facilities the new Shreveport Convention Center has to offer.
We appreciate the assistance you and your staff gave us before, during, and after the event. Our Board members noted this is the first time they recall having a meeting with the host staff shortly after the conference opening, rather than waiting for a critique following its completion. This measure undoubtedly contributed to our convention running as smoothly as it did."

""I have to thank you again and express to you how much everyone enjoyed the conference. My evaluations were 99% favorable of the facility and I am sure we will be back. Without you it would not have happened, and everyone was so polite and so very well organized. You have a great staff and it does make a wonderful difference to work with people tht understand and will work with you. On behalf of the Attorney General, Charles Foti, and the Office of the Attorney General, we thank you for everything. It was a great success!""

"My compliments to the Shreveport Convention Center for a great job. The AEP Spring Conference of the Southwestern Electric Safety Exchange was smooth, and attendees complimented the facility, the meeting, the food and your staff. Shreveport made a good impression on attendees. We look forward to hosting future meetings at Shreveport's impressive Convention Center facility!"

""'The 71st Annual Convention of the Louisiana School Boards Association held in the Shreveport Convention Center was the best I ever attended!'" This was the statement echoed over and over again. The facility is very 'user friendly' and the staff one of the best to work with. The LSBA looks forward to coming back to Shreveport.""

"What a fabulous weekend we had at the Convention Center. Your entire staff was so professional and very helpful...you could not have made it easier for me. We have NEVER had a staff who volunteered to help us set us some of the banquet as your group did. The food was great! Our every request or need was met. I can't say "thank you" enough."
Order of the Eastern Star 8 State Exchange
"Here's to the Shreveport Convention Center! I always want a first-class venue with super services...We had vendors at the Everything Green Expo from larger markets who stated the facility was far better than they expected (in regard to costs). The Shreveport Convention Center puts on a first-class product at a reasonable cost. Our convention center and very capable staff were able to respond to last minute requests and have the ability to call upon resources to solve last-minute emergencies. "

"From the Marines of Bravo Company and especially myself, I would like to thank you and your staff for the tremendous effort and help (and most important your patience) during the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. The event will be a night to remember, and I look forward to many more.

"As you know, the Volunteers of America of North Louisiana recently held our Cherish the Children fundraising breakfast event at the new Shreveport Convention Center. Our event was very successful and the ballroom was the perfect location. Since the event we have received several letters and comments from guests expressing their delight in this facility. One guest wrote, "It is the perfect location; don't go anywhere else."
The staff is to be commended as they work hard to meet our needs and expectations. We appreciate our partnership with the Shreveport Convention Center and look forward to working with you again next year."
