Testimonials from Past Attendees

“The show was definitely worthwhile. We came away with numerous ideas, better
educated, and motivated to build our local offerings in the campuses we operate. I
believe we have connected with over a dozen vendors from the show. We’re looking
forward to next year’s bigger and better show.”

“From The Ground Up was filled with a comprehensive and valuable variety of local vendors for future business partnership consideration for Fresh Prep, many of which we may not have made contact with without the From The Ground Up Trade Show. We walked away with several new contacts and look forward to working with them in the future.”
