What MESA Members and Vendors are Saying:

“MESA Summit is by far the best investment for work related travel that I have attended.  The networking, face to face with vendor heads, summit vender discounts, and time spent with the best minds in the business is absolutely priceless.  For the second year a row, I’m walking away with 200k worth of real world attainable value.”

Omar Jawad, Sound Depot and Performance

“We were thrilled to be a part of another successful MESA Summit this year in Breckenridge, CO.  The MESA members represent the cutting edge in our industry, so it’s no surprise that the event put on by MESA was best-in-class.No other forum offers vendors the same focused and synergistic connection with retailers, all trying to better their businesses for themselves and employees”
