67 reasons guests give to attend Y’all Connect


Y’all Connect guests are our toughest critics. They should be — they pay to attend and expect a lot.

We are fortunate to have their feedback about our annual event. And we listen carefully to their critiques, even if they’re difficult for us to hear. We want to serve our guests better, and we want to grow.

They have been kind and generous with their compliments, too. (We’ve put them in the right sidebar, for those looking at the full version of the site.)
