"In more than 20 years of running a professional golf tournament, I have never experienced the type of 'red carpet' treatment from anywhere like we received from Overland Park. From the mayor's office to the Convention and Visitors Bureau to the police, fire and rescue - everyone was so accommodating and on the same page. I am very hopeful that we will have a professional golf tournament in Overland Park for years to come."
"Overland Park is like a second home to me. I've met so many people here that have become good friends that I always look forward to coming here. I really like this golf course, LionsGate. It's a great venue for this event."
"I was thrilled when our Board unanimously accepted Overland Park as the bid site for the Trials. The way Overland Park and the OPCVB embraced the event - from the full coverage of the police department on the course to the hotel reception for the athletes - they made it their event. The convenience of the hotels to the race site, restaurants and shopping were just what the national selection committee was looking for. Many of the athletes told us that this was the best race walk event they had ever participated in! The generosity and warmth of the people in Overland Park cannot be overstated."
"I found the Overland Park Convention Center to be one of the nicest facilities we've ever been in - we travel all around the country with our teams as well as hosting a large national volleyball tournament each year. It's beautiful to look at and wonderful to use. I cannot say enough about the staff at all the Kansas City area facilities and the OPCVB. From top to bottom, they were outstanding to work with - completely tuned-in to customer service. I recommend them without reservation!"
"The event was a great opportunity for the Kansas City area, especially Overland Park, to showcase itself to the volleyball community across the country. KC ranks as one of the best venues for accommodations and access to other amenities."
"This was one of the best events we have ever hosted. The people and facilities were all wonderful and made this event a success. The community offered so many things for our competitors and fans to take advantage of while they were here."
"It was a very enjoyable weekend from start to finish. The hall at the convention center where the meet was held was spacious and we were able to see every event from our seats. We enjoyed the selection of restaurants close by and loved the welcome packet and coupons we received. Everything was easy to find and accessible."
