          What people said about this show:
          "Thank you for a lovely morning of valuable networking! The SCA
          event was everything we'd anticipated and more!!!"
          No Studio Studios
          Houston's Homeless Artist Coalition
          Tracy Abbott - Ecclesia
          Vikki Smedley - Center St. Ministries

          " . . . the Trade Show was for me a very successful event. Two capitalists
          visited my booth, a new marketing avenue became apparent and a potentially
          lucrative opportunity to become involved in a franchising strategy
          may develop."

          Fraser Baker, Ph.D. - CAM-Admin Developer

        • " . . . loved the show. I made sales, added distributors to my down line
          and set appointments for some gatherings. Thank you, SCA!"

          Phyllis Norton - Easy Living

          "I enjoyed the event.  My purpose in attending was to retail product and
          give my business more exposure.  I did make sales to event attendees."
          Beola Baker - Beola's Unique Designs

          "What a nice crowd. I especially liked the planned introductions. People
          came directly to my booth when the breakfast was over and I booked
          four speaking engagements."

          George Sanders - Motivational Speaker

          "Thank you so for the opportunity.  The 28th Annual Fall Trade Show
          was my first exposure to SCA.  I had a lovely experience and found joining
          the group for breakfast as a vendor to be a valuable expenditure of my time.
          I did indeed make some wonderful and promising connections.  My tally
          yielded: 1 hot lead, 2 warm leads and 7 contacts that I look forward to
          building relationships with."

          Keisha Hunter
          PR Group Media

          "The Show as perfect for us. We made sales and also got some very good
          leads for future business. We'll be back next year!"
          Brenda Cummins and Mary Taylor - Sweet Scents
