PFI is Homeward Bound...

We had a great time at the 2009 Special Event Conference in San Diego, California! We can't believe the week's already over!

The TSE Conference is a great way to kick off the new year; we reconnect with industry colleagues, vendors/suppliers and network with new friends. We took a myriad of educational workshops, attended fabulous evening events and found great new products and ideas on the massive tradeshow floor.

Stay tuned for fabulous photos from throughout the week. We'll be posting a lot on Monday!

Back from Bermuda

If I got paid a dime, no make that a dollar, every time I "got back from Bermda" I'd be rich! Really, though, it was a great event--a powerful Re-Insurance company held their post-Holiday party for a group of about 200. They area notorious for having way too much fun, drinking way too much and kissing people that are way off limits!

Much thanks to our Bermuda anchor--Bigga--my on-site installation hero. We worked like dogs but had fun the whole time.

Home briefly and on to San Diego --look out, here we come!
