"See all the winners"
Visit the ATME 2007 Exhibitors
Everyone just raved about the Red Rock Resort and begged us to go back there again next year. (We are looking at dates. Stay tuned!) They also raved about the conference content, networking opportunities and general good vibes. ATME 2007 was a resounding success and for those who couldn't make it and those who want the information in detail, we have compiled reports, podcasts of all the sessions, powerpoint presentations, and contact information for all the exhibitors.
ATME wishes to express its gratitude to the following companies and individuals that have donated their services and assistance to this organization and to the 2007 conference:
- ATME especially thanks Co Chairs Susan Black and Henry Harteveldt for their vision and orchestration of this most successful conference and, Joel Chusid, Jacqueline Johnson, Christina Brzica, Ken Testani and Gary Sain for their invaluable contribution of time and energy as members of the Conference Committee of ATME 2007.
- ATME thanks all the moderators and speakers who gave of their time so generously to make ATME 2007 so successful.
- ATME wishes to thank Jeff Senior, EVP of Marketing, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts,

Fairmont's support will help ATME provide other opportunities for many travel and hospitality university students and programs. Jeff Senior and Fairmont strongly believe that we all must mentor the next generation of hospitality and tourism marketers.
