UD Conference Services – an easy decision.

“My group from Gore had a great experience at Clayton Hall last week. The entire staff was very helpful and service-oriented. I never heard “no” or “we can’t do that”.

Thanks for your can-do attitude as we worked out all the details. With so many pieces having to come together for a meeting like this, it is great to not have to worry about the conference center or any of their details. When we decided to have this meeting only a few weeks before it happened, all of the internal to Gore options to accommodate 50 people were no longer available. Based on my past experience with [Conference Services], Clayton Hall was my easy button. And you lived up to that expectation.
