A note from a client attending IMTS (they booked four days in a row):


“During our recent exhibition at McCormick Place, we decided to invite our good customers and prospective customers for a cruise on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River on Monday through Thursday evening….You made the organizing of the event effortless including food and drinks. Our guests were from every corner of the U.S. including a number of International guests.

For many this was their first trip to Chicago. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality, the food, and the fantastic views of Chicago from the River aboard the Gypsy Spirit. Many asked if we would invite them again. You are in our plans for September 2010, but we may need your larger Free Spirit. Thank you for making the cruises each evening a memorable event for our guests.”
